July 24th 2010: At the Action On Film International Film Festival VI, AREA 9 Productions will present ?SWAN,? a charity event to benefit the Lung Cancer Foundation Of America. The event was hosted by Executive Producer Ed Bernero and the cast of the popular CBS television show, ?CRIMINAL MINDS? in Pasadena. In attendance, supporting Andy Swan and his family were Shemar Moore, Ed Bernero, and Kirsten Vangsness from Criminal Minds, Al and Zadrina Eisenmann from Area 9 Productions and more. In February 2010, just as his career was beginning to take off, 34-year-old writer/director Andy Swan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, a total shock as Andy was never a smoker. Through his drive and determination, coupled with cutting-edge cancer treatments and tremendous support from his family, friends and colleagues, Andy has a bright future ahead. Andy is a partner in AREA 9 Productions. He is married to Jen Swan and is the father of 3-year-old, Nicholas.
