Team

Tab Ballis is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Wilmington, NC who extends the potential for the expression of human stories through his media consulting firm, Family Tree Productions.  Tab is a faculty member of the University of North Carolina Wilmington School of Social Work, and has also created video and online educational programs for academic and human service organizations. 

Serving as the Media Coordinator for the John T. Edwards Foundation, Tab manages their archival video collection, and has produced, directed, and edited "Tools and Techniques for Family Therapy," distributed by Psychotherapy.net. 

 

Collaborating with Andy Myers of Working Films, Tab produced the short documentary, “My Marriage is not Threatened by Gay Marriage in North Carolina,” which was honored as the recipient of the 2013 National Association of Social Workers Media Award.

 

As the Media Coordinator for The Frank Harr Foundation, Tab  produced and directed its 2013 and 2014 SAGE Story film projects, co-sponsored by AARP and the national SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) organization.

 

Tab has served as executive producer and creative/technical consultant for numerous studio and independent film productions, working with the talented film community of Wilmington, NC.

Associate Producer Michael Davenport has maintained due diligence for Park View from its inception, as our Legal Advisor.  Focusing on a range of specialties in his Private Practice, including entertainment law, Michael brings passion and integrity to the production:  “I became a lawyer out of a deep and abiding aspiration to be of service to those in need…to be of assistance to those in peril…”

 

Collaboration with Associate Producer Stephen Sprinkle, and his groundbreaking book Unfinished Lives, has opened new possibilities for a more meaningful telling of the story of Talana Kreeger, informed by his extensive research of LGBT hate crime victims.  Steve's moving narration will make "Park View" accessible to a much broader audience, as the production invokes universal themes that will resonate nationally.

 

Park View's original soundtrack by Wilmington-based singer/songwriter Laura McLean captures the poignant grittiness of this story, in a manner that is true to its Southern coastal setting.

 

Fiscal sponsorship provided by The Frank Harr Foundation, an LGBT advocacy organization located in Wilmington, NC, will facilitate tax deductions for  supporters of the Park View project, while funding their important work in Southeastern North Carolina.
