Will Decoff, VP

Actor and the man behind Longreach, William DeCoff is very well known for his dedication to the horror genre. As an actor he is known for playing extreme characters in horror and comedy as well. His most notable performance to date was playing Jimmy O’Malley in the comedy “Slip in Fall” playing opposite heavyweights Andrew Divoff and William Forsythe. Director Marc Colluci after directing DeCoff referred to him as “A comic genius”. William Forsythe remarked one of DeCoff’s adlib monologues was one of the funniest he ever witnessed in person.

Managing editor of Fangoria Michael Gingold wrote DeCoff’s turn in character while playing “the Director” in the film “Snuff” was “Insane and well worth watching”.

In his past DeCoff has been a Pro Wrestler and will be inducted into the New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2011. Walter “Killer” Kowalski stated on several occasions that DeCoff was pound for pound one of the physically toughest athletes he ever trained.

DeCoff is a retired Police Officer and was once a bodyguard for the Mass state Attorney General James Shannon. William is married and is the father of Actor Timmy DeCoff. William is currently preparing for the 2011 World Police and fire Games where he will compete in the Toughest Competitor Alive contest. A 5K run, 100M dash, 100m swim, bench press, rope climb, pull-ups, shot put, and obstacle course all in one day. In his last performance DeCoff placed in the top 10 at 41 years of age.

Emily King

Emily King, Producer of Marketing and Distribution

Emily King, actress and marketing specialist, is thrilled to see her online and performance worlds merging as she embraces the Longreach roles of Producer of Marketing and Distribution; and the character Dawn Aiden.

Emily received a BS in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of New Hampshire and has since worked three years as the Marketing Director for a Sotheby’s International Realty firm, and two years as a freelance Research and Developer for The New York Times.  Emily has spearheaded many marketing and advertising projects with her employers and also as a freelancer, building up her repertoire of skills to include website design, XHTML, CSS, WordPress, Joomla, SEO, InDesign, DreamWeaver, Photoshop, Flash and more. Her rooted beliefs in the power of social networking and that a website is only as good as it is visible, are her two guiding forces in the virtual world.

Emily’s love for performing began at an early age in her parents’ basement as she directed and acted out the most random skits with her brother and friends. Her love for performing continued as she played one of the leads in a 4th grade production of The Point; Juliet in middle school; and was an avid athlete, cheerleader, pianist, horseback rider, and dancer in high school. Emily thankfully reconnected with the intrinsic rewards of acting upon graduating college, and has since fallen head over heels for film.  Recently Emily has appeared in commercials, independent films, feature films, and theater productions.  She is represented by Portland Models and Talent and New England Models Group.
