Biography

Against the Wind was written and is produced and directed by Brad Batchelor and his Flying Scotsman Productions Inc.

Since child hood Batchelor has been involved in movie making and obsessed with movies in general.  In this film the time period moves from the WW1 Lafayette Esquadrille french flyers  around 1916, to fighting Opium traders in the 20s, to challenges with racial abuse and murder in the 30s.

Since playing a cavalry officer in the Mel Gibson film, The Patriot , and spending time with crew and analyzing the whole process behind the scenes  as well as spending time behind the director and producers as they controlled  and directed the film he made a commitment to move forward into a career in filmmaking.

An actor in independent and major productions allowed him to connect with some of the foremost authorities on pre and postproduction technology. His capabilities were enhanced by learning from editors, camera men, and sound engineers.  By attending many post graduate seminars in producing, editing, high definition camera work, light and sound coupled with his business experience he has excelled in the demands of movie production.  Batchelor relates well to acting and to actors and crew due to his experience in both areas.

He has been involved in a variety of activities and sport such  as  Triathlons, Karate, Polo and Aviation.  His experience in life blends well into putting together the ingredients to create a real movie with real props on a tight budget.  Batchelor says “you have million dollars to spend you will spend a million.  You only have a cigar box full of money and you will make things happen and everyone wants to help.  CGI is great but what is wrong with reality.”

"I have created a streamlined and simplified crew with very high tech equipment to speed filming, take advantage of the moment and maintain a momentum of accuracy in filmmaking as well as the ability to travel internationally.  Time is money and we are short of each."

Some of the recent films he has worked in are Miami Vice (2006) with Jamie Foxx & Colin Ferrell, Grave Dancers (2006) and has a principal role in and co-produced,  co-directed/etc. A Tale About Bootlegging (2007).  He has worked with the history channel as well as performed as a stunt rider in many other independent films, and commercials.  Along with Against the Wind Batchelor is helping in the production of Vengeance a New York film with an A list of stars, coming to theaters in 2008.

Born in Michigan and a Doctor of Chiropractic that has practiced in Boone, N.C. for the past 29 years, he has created one of the busiest Chiropractic Practices in the U.S.  Dr. Batchelor lectures internationally regarding management, profitability, efficiency and quality service and he is a consultant to doctors around the world. He has held every office and received most of the honors within the North Carolina Chiropractic Association and was the youngest to hold the office of NCCA President.  When asked how he fits two professions in he says “ I surround myself with winners to create a winning team.  Caring for the health of others is what I do, what I have done since childhood.  Filmmaking is an adventure that fulfills my need to create and provide entertainment to the masses.”

Saith the Angel
I Can

Gospel singing phenomenon and actress, KITRA WILLIAMS, was voted outstanding in her most recent renown leading role performance with Bishop T. D. Jakes' masterpiece stage play, "Woman, Thou Art Loosed." Kitra sold out to performances throughout the country sending audiences on a spiritual emotional
roller coaster!

Kitra is founder of "the Agape Gospel Theater and Film Awards, an awards ceremony that has profoundly enhanced literarily works through the Gospel Entertainment Industry. The 3rd annual was recently held atthe famous Apollo Theater on February 24, 2007. Honored were those remaining true to the “ Gospel” in Theater, Film and Cartoon animation. The concept is only preceded by her experience and success in performing with some of the biggest names in Gospel theater as well as the Gospel industry, Kitra has performed as former lead singer for Bet’ s own Dr. Bobby Jones as a New Life Singers, as well as appeared with Gospel greats such as John P. Kee, Yolanda Adams, Albertina Walker, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong, to name a few.

On a European tour with Dr. Bobby Jones at the "Lionel Hampton Lounge" in Paris, Kitra graced the stage with Gospel Giants such as Vickie Winans and the Rev. Daryl Coley. Her first musical award” the Vision Award" was presented at the Grand Memorial in Nashville, TN. There she received acknowledgment as a part of the "Best Supporting Female Group" from the legendary Albertina Walker, as a New Life Gospel Singer.

Prior years saw Kitra gaining favorable recognition as she repeatedly delivered magnificent show-stopping performances. Her starring roll in the movie Roscoe’ s Chicken and Waffles, along with her leading rolls in Bishop T.D. hit Gospel stage play “ Woman Thou Art Loosed” Tyler Perry’ s Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” playwright Michael Mathew’ s hit musical dramas, “ Come Out of the Rain,” and “ No Place to Lay My Head.” Kitra also starred in Playwright David E. Talbert’ s hit musical “ Fabric of a Man,” which has recently been released across the nation world wide in Blockbusters Videos. Kitra’ s amazing ability to intertwine acting with singing as a ministry has left audiences in awe - - partly due to her opera training in college! With an astonishing five-year success, Kitra humbly attributes all Glory to God. “ It's the anointing he gives,” she says.

With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education from Cheney State College (Cheney, PA), Kitra also received an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Theology from Christ is the Answer University (Hollandale, FL).

This was surprisingly received at the end of a Shirley Caesar Concert in which Kitra was the featured guest soloist! Kitra’ s heartfelt passion for youth landed her a position as Vocal Coach and Theatrical Director for the Amazing Grace Conservatory, chaired by actress Wendy Raquel Robinson, co-star of the Steve Harvey Show. She is excited about her late test commitment to open her own Agape Gospel Academy in Phoenix. Elated about her latest mission, the launching of The Agape Gospel Theater and Film Awards and her record label. Kitra has formed a coalition of playwrights, directors, actors and singers that will set out to unite America with an “ America United Tour” This will begin May of 2007. The tour will consist of a 16 city mini concert and stage play, titled “ From Tragedy to Triumph” It will feature Ms. Williams and the personal testimony of a few Hurricane Katrina survivors. One of the survivors, Rakeysh Harding expresses the healing that takes place as he acts out his frustrations through the art of theater.! Kitra, says writing and directing musicals has taken her to heights she’ s only dreamed of. “God through my music and my creative gifts has performed miracles“ !

George Peter Tingley is a composer, teacher, and pianist currently living in Point Richmond, California (in the San Francisco Bay Area). He is a highly active member of the Music Teacher’s Association of California, participating in Marin County events and serving of the Board of Director’s of the Alameda County Branch. He administrates the Composers Today of the Alameda County Branch, evaluates student compositions at the regional level and adjudicates the state contest. In 1996 he was a featured composer at the national convention of the MYNA in Kansas City, Missouri. He has been invited once again to present his work at the 1998 convention to be held in Nashville, Tennessee.

George received a BA in piano performance from California State University, Hayward, and completed both BM and MM degrees in Music Theory at the University of Southern California. During the 1970’s he was a private composition student of the legendary Nadia Boulanger in Paris.

In a teaching career spanning nearly 20 years, George has taught hundreds of students at a variety of institutions throughout Northern California, including extension courses at both San Francisco State University and Sacramento State University. College teaching has included lessons and classes in piano performance, jazz improvisation, musical composition, and music theory. In the field of scholarship, Mr. Tingley’s detailed discussion of the technique of metric modulation appeared in the Indiana Theory Review (Spring 1981), a paper that was both cited in Music Analysis: An annotated Guide to the Literature (Schirmer Books, 1991) and praised by Pulitzer-prize winning composer Elliot Carter.

In 1989, George began writing music for the educational market and now has over 60 published piano pieces to his credit. His late-intermediate piano solo "Reverie", published by Alfred in 1991, has become a standard teaching piece and is performed over 3000 times a year in the United States and abroad. His collection of piano duet music, "Fiddle and the Tuba" (written for teachers and students to perform together on one piano), is listed in the bulletin of the National Federation of Music Clubs.

George’s association with Olympic figure-skating champion Kristi Yamaguchi began in 1992 when he completed a composition written especially for her entitled "Kristi’s Theme". A Warner Bros. publication, the piece was arranged for full symphony orchestra and recorded at the Fantasy Studios in Berkeley featuring Mr. Tingley as piano soloist. Kristi has skated to the music on such programs as CBS This Morning, ABC Wide World of Sports, and IBM Skates of Gold, as well as in live performances at the Boston Garden, and in New York, at the Rockefellar Center and in Central Park.

In March 1997, the Berkeley Symphony premiered George’s arrangement of the Irish folk melody "The Gold Ring", a performance that featured 10-year old daughter Ariel as flute soloist. And in May 1997, Mr. Tingley’s 13-year old composition student, Jennifer Wang of El Cerrito, placed 2nd in her age division in the state contest of the MTAC Composers Today Program, an honor which subsequently led to a special invitation for her to perform at the state convention in San Francisco.

Of all his various activities, Mr. Tingley perhaps finds greatest pleasure learning from his students and sharing pedagogical ideas with his fellow teachers. He hopes to continue exactly what he is doing.

  Stunt Pilot
   
 

View Andrew King Details

   
 
Born in 1962, Andrew had the good fortune to grow up to the sights and sounds of Fokkers and Sopwiths at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in upstate New York. His father was and still is a pilot there, and a number of family members were involved in the weekly airshows. As a teenager he graduated from washing the airplanes to flying them, soloing in a Piper Cub at sixteen, and flying my first airshow at nineteen. Some of the airplanes Andrew flew at Rhinebeck included the Great Lakes 2T-1A, Fleet 16B, Davis V-3, Fokker Triplane, Curtiss Jenny, and my father's DeHavilland Tiger Moth.

During this time he got his Airframe and Powerplant mechanic's license from Parks College in Cahokia, Illinois, and an English degree from Nyack College in Nyack, New York. He has managed to make some use of both, working on airplanes ever since, and occasionally writing articles for various aviation magazines.

Occasionally Andrew gets to see himself on TV and the big screen, he helped to make a GE commercial which shows a Wright brothers airplane powered by a GE jet engine, and with some of the same people was on The Learning Channel's "Junkyard Wars" program. For "Junkyard Wars", he was tasked with building a Wright-era aircraft in 2 days, using material from the junkyard, and then flying it. There were teams from England and France competing with them, and although they didn't win, it was a lot of fun. Widely known as one of the foremost WWI-era pilots in the world, Andrew was one of two American stunt pilots in the movie "Flyboys," the long-ago tale of courage and determination of the Lafayette Escadrille.

"I've been very fortunate in life to fly over 100 different types of aircraft, all but a few from the antique and classic era, and have ferried vintage aircraft all over the US, once flying a Waco UPF-7 from Anchorage, Alaska, to St. Louis. Hopefully there's more of the same to come."
