Give us an inch of creative leash. We triple-dog dare you.

We’ve written, produced and directed videos of every length, style and type—feature films, short films, music videos, TV ads, TV shows, and more.

lilDRAGON is made up of a team of creatives that are inspired by unique creative challenges and absolutely love storytelling & production no matter the medium or format.

We believe our very best work comes when we are given the room to be creative. This team is made up of some talented folks with things like degrees, ideas, and bellies full of fire.

So who are we talking about?

  • Gabe McCauley, originally from West Virginia (yes that is a separate state from Virginia) started the company after graduating from MTSU.  His background stems from theater and making back yard movies. Gabe married a rock star and they currently have two offspring.  When Gabe is not directing videos he is busy never being weird and hard at work being excellent with client relations.  You’ll recognize him from his five finger shoes and saddleback leather man bag.  Also worth noting, Gabe recently directed the film Heaven Bound which is scheduled for a fall of 2015 release.

  • Joel McAfee comes from Arkansas (the other West Virginia) and currently resides in Bowling Green, KY.  Joel and his wife Katie have 2 children, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 free kittens (please use the contact page if you’re interested).  Joel specializes in taking the awkward out of Lil “awkward” Dragon. Graduating from WKU with a degree in TV & Film Production, Joel produces results and brings brains to the business operations.  You’ll recognize Joel by his Arkansas Razorback paraphernalia and his preference of shaving irregularly.

  • Nick Nichols hails from Northern California but has an affinity for camouflage like only a proper Southerner should.  Nick is the swiss army knife of lilDRAGON, the one that includes the toothpic and ball point pen.  An Editor, Grip, AC, Camera Operator, wannabe producer, and quite the proficient MOVI & jib operator.  When he isn’t capturing countless hours of RAW footage he enjoys eating everything in sight.
