Amardeep Kaleka - Director

Amardeep (known to many as “Arm”) was born in India. At a young age, his family fled to America because of religious persecution. The move was a shock that he will never forget. His work as an artist has always revolved around international humanism - each film and project diving head first into the land of character and emotion. After his father was tragically killed in a mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin on August 5, 2012, Arm has taken on an active advocacy role in championing for peace. He considers Sirius a tool in bringing people together in a movement towards seeking positive interaction and the search for truth.

Arm completed his Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design. There, he produced, directed, and edited his first independent feature, Baby Blues ($1.1 million). This movie focuses on a lonely mother who succumbs to a battle with post partum psychosis. After completing the degree, Arm moved to Los Angeles, and currently shoots, directs, and edits for a number of clients. His work as a cinematographer with the Dallas Habitat for Humanity (Moroch Agency), earned the campaign a Gold Addy. After that, Jacob's Turn - a short documentary which focused on a very unique child with Down's Syndrome - won him a Silver Telly for direction, cinematography, and editing. Later that year, Jacob's Turn went on to win an Emmy award for Best Human Interest Story.

J.D. Seraphine - Producer

J.D. grew up in "the thick of the entertainment world" from a young age touring on the road with his father, Danny Seraphine, founding drummer of the hit band, Chicago. The focus of his life has always been to make a positive difference, however that has changed from working in a broad range of different interests including politics, business, and entertainment; to raising 3 young children and following a new clear direction: to produce socially and commercially viable entertainment properties.

He has spent the last 7 years working in many facets of media production and media project financing. His resume includes Production Management and Coordination on large budget commercials for many blue chip companies including Nike and Apple to name a few. On theatrical feature films, J.D. has consulted a number of companies and projects regarding project finance and financial structure. He also raised funding for numerous projects, including the Tony nominated Broadway hit play, Rock of Ages, which Warner Bros has recently adapted into a $60 Million Feature Film starring Tom Cruise.

Laurie Knapp - Post-Production

Laurie is a creative executive at Neverending Light and has worked on several documentary projects with the company as a producer, writer and editor. Laurie's vision for creating film is to use this highly sensory tool to create emotional impact, finding the stories that not only open audience's eyes to otherwise overlooked corners of the world, but also inspire a movement towards positive impact. As a published author (11:11), Laurie began working with Amardeep on several writing projects, including a script based on their shared interest of Extraterrestrials and Ancient Astronaut theory. Wanting to pursue filmmaking full-time, Laurie moved to Los Angeles and began developing her skills to include editing, animation, web design and producing. She also brings an interest in media marketing to the table, helping to develop the unique crowdfunding platform upon which a community of Sirius supporters gathered in record-breaking numbers.

Jared Bonshire - Producer

From an early age, Jared has wanted to make a difference in society by creating far-reaching media that provided guidance on what is truly important in life. Part of this vision has been incorporated in his view on life, providing as much laughter and happiness to those around him by living each day with the excitement it deserves. To further his mission of enacting passion and change, he attended the Savannah College of Art and Design as a graduate film student to learn the mechanics of filmmaking to help tell stories of inspiration and humor in a way to reach the largest audiences. To his fortune, he met and befriended Amardeep Kaleka, instantly bonding with him on a metaphysical level in a very short period of time. This bond grew as they learned of their parallel interest in providing film that not only entertained, but educated and enlightened it's audience.

After years of working and growing away from one another, Amardeep and Jared decided to join together to build Neverending Light Productions in 2008, and have continued to build their company and their medium to fit their vision since. Jared continues his work in the business world as a Commercial Real Estate broker, but donates his time finding space commission free for non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, church organizations and A Helping Hand. Utilizing his business acumen, Jared helps steer Neverending Light in a direction that helps achieve socially conscious media in a fiscally conservative method.
