Director & Producer
Cliff is a 30-year veteran of media production, marketing, and entertainment – including the acclaimed documentary Bringing the Fallen Home. An accomplished director, producer, writer, and artist, Springs loves to tell stories – be it for entertainment or to help his clients promote their businesses through his work as CEO of Genesis Studios. "Telling the story of the Beloved was challenging for me in a new way: the story is so amazing, that my creative objective was to stay out of the way and let the story speak for itself. No technical wizardry. No crafty storytelling. The Beloved are telling their own stories. My job was just to help give them a new forum in which to do that. I'm grateful to Mary for letting me be a part of this incredible journey, and I'm excited to see what God has in store next for the Babies."
Not an Artist
Mary is just an ordinary person called to extraordinary circumstances. She is a retired nurse, wife, mother, and grandmother. Having had no artistic training, in January 2017, she began to create a living memorial to precious children killed in the Holocaust. In seven short months, Beloved: Children of the Holocaust, a collection of 27 beautiful portraits, was complete. Since that time, Mary has gone on to draw more than 100 portraits in five different collections, and her work has been viewed millions of times and recognized in the United States Congressional Record. “Working with Cliff Springs and Genesis Studios has been an amazing experience. I asked Cliff in the beginning to tell the story of the Beloved in a beautiful and holy way. Through vision, persistence, and commitment, he and his team have done just that and more. Beloved: Children of the Holocaust is now our collaborative gift to the world.”
