About Us

Behind every amazing story is the creative power.

Our GOAL

Co-creators MARC A HUTCHINS and IAN GRAHAM are a filmmaker and writer team whose mission is to create family entertainment that promotes traditional values, doesn’t compromise, and doesn’t suck.

Our STORY

Marc and Ian met one mid-summer afternoon in 2014 at a McAlister’s in Roanoke, VA. Marc was between productions and Ian was seeking information on turning his books into scripts. Once Marc slapped a concept note for Stellar on the table, Ian was sold. Though originally written and developed as a feature film, the duo took to developing Stellar as a book series.

Now on a quest to change the landscape of family media, Marc and Ian have created Avendale Entertainment to produce book series and other media for the entire family to enjoy.
