Lestat (TOM CRUISE, left) and Louis (BRAD PITT) entertain themselves with a tavern wench (BELINA LOGAN) in Geffen Pictures' "Interview With The Vampire," distributed by Warner Bros., and also starring Antonio Banderas, Stephen Rea, Christian Slater and Kirsten Dunst.

Producer DAVID GEFFEN is founder and chairman of The Geffen Company, which has been a pre-eminent force in film, theatrical and record production for more than two decades.

He has released under his Geffen Pictures banner such films as "Personal Best," "Risky Business," "Lost in America," "Beetlejuice," "After Hours," "Little Shop of Horrors," "Men Don't Leave," "Defending Your Life," "The Last Boy Scout" and "M. Butterfly." Geffen Theater's credits include "M. Butterfly" (which received nine Tony Awards, including Best Play) and such other mega-hits as "Cats," "Dreamgirls," "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Miss Saigon."

Geffen most recently announced, in partnership with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the creation of a new studio that will produce film, television, music and interactive media products.

Producer STEPHEN WOOLLEY continues his long association with Neil Jordan on "Interview With The Vampire." The two first partnered more than 10 years ago on "The Company of Wolves," followed by "Mona Lisa," "High Spirits," "The Miracle," and, most recently, "The Crying Game." Woolley earned a 1992 Oscar nomination for producing "The Crying Game." Woolley also received the Producers Guild of America award for Producer of the Year (1993) and the British Academy Award for Best British Film of 1992 for "The Crying Game."

In 1982, Woolley and Nik Powell founded Palace Pictures and Palace Video in London, a distribution company whose releases in various territories over the next 10 years included "Eraserhead," "Stop Making Sense," "Wild at Heart," "Hairspray," "La Femme Nikita," "Angel" (Neil Jordan's directorial debut), "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "The Evil Dead" series, "Diva," "Blood Simple," "Paris, Texas," "Wish You Were Here," "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover," "Kiss of the Spiderwoman" and "When Harry Met Sally...," as well as more than 200 other titles.

Woolley also produced the Palace features "Absolute Beginners," "Shag," "Scandal," "The Big Man," "The Pope Must Die" and "A Rage in Harlem," as well as serving as executive producer on a variety of other Palace productions, including "Letter to Brezhnev," "The Courier," "Hardware" and "Waterland."

In January, 1993, Woolley and Powell formed a new production company, Scala Productions, which continues to produce films in the United Kingdom and abroad. The first Scala Production was "Backbeat," produced by Woolley, a film based on the Beatles' early days in Hamburg.

Co-producer REDMOND MORRIS has worked with Neil Jordan and Stephen Woolley since "The Miracle" in 1990, which Morris produced with Woolley, going on to "The Crying Game" in 1991. He was also associate producer on Woolley's Palace Pictures productions of "Scandal" and "The Big Man."

Born and raised in Ireland, Morris' interest in film was fueled by his father's collaboration with John Ford in an Irish-based company, which produced, among other films, "The Quiet Man." Working his way up from location manager and third assistant director (his early credits include "Yanks," "Agatha" and "Reds"), Morris became production manager on "Return of the Soldier," "Secret Places" and "Gorky Park." His other associate producer work includes "Map of the Human Heart," "December Bride," "Buster" and "Comrades."

Directory of Photography PHILIPPE ROUSSELOT. A.F.C. first came to the attention of American audiences with his stunning work on the French film "Diva," for which he won the Cesar Award, France's equivalent of the Oscar. He won a second Cesar for "Therese" and two Academy Award nominations for "Hope and Glory" and "Henry and June." In 1992 his cinematography on "A River Runs Through It" was honored with an Academy Award.

Rousselot's other credits include "The Emerald Forest," "Dangerous Liaisons," "The Bear," "Sommersby," "We're No Angels" and "The Miracle," the last two for Neil Jordan.
