Of course every one in entertainment wants to be in front of the camera for their “15 minutes”, but in order to bring out the best in every actor or story, there has to be a mastermind behind the scenes running the show. Sandy King Carpenter is undeniably a master mind. Whether it is respectfully branding the John Carpenter name or reinventing traditional sci-fi and horror, this pro knows how to work her magic and only settles for the best.
