MIKE CLARK (Video Producer, Editor) Mike's background includes stints in production at television stations in Syracuse, NY and Tampa, FL. In Los Angeles Mike was with Sony Pictures Television and its predecessor companies for 25 years as their in-house video producer for its domestic syndication & distribution division.  He personally produced and edited over 6,000 on-air promos for Sony's off-network situation comedies including Seinfeld, Married…with Children, Mad About You and The King of Queens and produced Sony's in-house news program SPT Today which included roaming red carpets, capturing images at Sony's corporate events and premieres.

Today Mike owns and operates Clark Media Productions where he shoots and edits myriad projects for clients. "I'm proud to be a part of One Term More," he said.  "When I look at the appalling state of politics today where common sense and decency are out of vogue and voters are cynically manipulated by lies, distortion and fear, it gives me pride and a great sense of purpose to be a part of a grass-roots video effort like this one that will likely reach millions of voters across the country and hopefully make a difference in November. 

"My hope is that One Term More will be a call-to-action for those on the fence about their choices in the upcoming election by pointing out just a few of the conservative hypocrisies and their leaders' utter contempt for modern democracy. One Term More is a passionate and moving piece of performance art. When viewers hear the emotion behind the voices and listen to their words appealing to voters to take the high road, perhaps those who might have otherwise voted against their own socioeconomic interests will pause to reconsider.

"Citizens who supported President Obama four years ago will, hopefully, once again cast their vote for him in November, remembering he's the one who gave us more accessible health care (while the other side offered only war), sensible financial reform and civil rights for the LGBT community by supporting gay marriage and bringing an end to the military's discriminatory policy of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'

"The technical tools that we're using today to produce and distribute One Term More didn't exist back in the '50's when Americans were subjected to Communist witch-hunts or in the '60's when African Americans fought fearlessly for civil rights.  Now they do and we're using them to help preserve our democracy and the honor and decency for which our country so proudly stands.  There can be no higher purpose than to lend my assistance to the making of One Term More."

DEREK MUELLER (Illustrator) has, for as long as he can remember, loved drawing and painting people, places and things. He was inspired at about age 12 after seeing a traveling exhibit of Norman Rockwell's work and decided then and there he wanted to be an "Illustrator." Even after graduating from Stanford University (where he studied art, film and the culture of France in an effort to find his "real" calling) he still knew that a career in art was ahead of him.

Based on his own portfolio of works (he was entirely self-taught), he was awarded a full summer scholarship at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Unable to obtain the funding to continue and earn a full art degree, he instead went freelance and at age 25 was suddenly very busy working as a storyboard artist for many of San Francisco's leading ad agencies.

After several years he decided to move into professional finished illustration work and inaugurated this decision with his oil painting of a Farm Family in the familiar Rockwell style. This painting was well received by the New York Society of Illustrators and a few years later he was spending at least half his time creating finished work for publications such as Reader's Digest and Newsday Magazine, the other half still spent doing storyboards. His work has often been compared to Rockwell's in subject matter and style. He especially likes painting the joys and frustrations of everyday life in America and hopes to continue doing so for the rest of his career.

Derek has continued to expand the market for his illustration even after the "lean years" that began around the turn of the millennium. His main objective is to take his own ideas, mixing nostalgia with contemporary themes and create a new blend of illustration and traditional art. With vintage illustrations from the "Golden Age" now in great demand by collectors, he feels that it is time that his own classically styled illustrations become recognized for what they truly are: fine art. http://www.derekmueller.com
