Director Biography - Evan Enslow, Erin Anne MacDonald, Paul D. Mooney

Evan and Erin met twelve years ago acting in an off-Broadway show, "The Columbine Project." Since then, they have produced and shot two pilots, one of which, "Harlem Knights," was an official selection at the New York Television Festival. Erin and Paul have collaborated on a number of projects as well, including an original pilot, "Vetted."

Evan Enslow

Evan was born on the plains of Kansas and grew up in the Rocky Mountains in Eastern Colorado. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18, graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and then moved to New York with the award-winning production of “The Columbine Project” to star in its Off-Broadway premiere, a role for which he won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Brooks Brown. Other credits include "Blue Bloods”, “Shadow of Doubt”, "Red Dead Redemption”, and many international voiceover credits. As a producer, Evan was the EP and line producer on “Harlem Knights” and TV pilot “Somebody's Girlfriend.”

While film and television production is Evan's true passion, he is also a proud member of the LGBTQI+ community, the eldest of six brothers, a personal trainer and the sober beverage director of a top NYC restaurant.

"Creating something out of nothing is the most fulfilling process - especially when you believe in the impact your vision can have on the people you love."

Erin Anne MacDonald

A New York based actress, writer and producer, Erin hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After studying musical theatre at The University of Miami, she moved to NYC to pursue a career on the stage, but soon discovered her love for film, both in front of the camera and behind it. As an actress, she had a starring role in the feature film "Wild Men" for which she received a Best Actress nomination at The Macabre Faire Film Festival, and starring roles in the award-winning films “The Senator’s Daughter” starring Rick Zahn, and "A Family Dinner," an official selection at The Cannes International Film Festival, in addition to many other roles. She studies with New York acting coach David Vadim.

Alongside Evan, Erin co-wrote, produced and starred in "Harlem Knights" and "Somebody's Girlfriend," an original pilot. In 2021, Erin started working in the development department at Don Kee Productions. She currently has several other pilots and features in development. In her free time, she uses her built-in radar that finds the nearest thrift store to buy vintage dresses she doesn't need.

Paul D. Mooney

Born in New York City. B.A. in film, Boston University. MFA in creative writing, Sarah Lawrence. Veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Screenwriter, director, novelist. His TV pilot "Beadwindow" was the winning script at the Creative World Awards, finalist at Cinequest Film and Creativity Festival, Richmond International Film Festival, and also gained many other accolades.

History buff, lover of Lagavulin, and on a sacred mission to someday watch the entirety of "Casablanca" with Erin (because she always falls asleep before it's over.)

Director Statement

Covid-19 turned all of our worlds upside down, but none so much as those of our front-line workers. All of us had to adjust to quarantine and a new social norm, and our interpersonal relationships were put to the test at the cost of loneliness and isolation. We fought to balance our sanity with our physical health, but front-line workers, particularly those working in health care, had much tougher choices to make than most.

"Care" offers us a window to the unknown consequences of our actions today, and what they could mean tomorrow.
