Disclaimer

special consideration is given for “name” actors, often they are credited just before the title comes up. and again, you have a lot of wiggle room with closing credits. some films credit the entire cast first, before the director. you have options here.

But, due to the nature of our film, we will be adhering to older style credits reels, which will come at the start of the film, with only the names of the actors and production company coming at the end.
