WHO WE ARE

Sibling filmmakers. As children in the suburbs of Detroit, we used to rally the neighborhood kids into making “movies” with us on VHS. Some things just don’t change.

WHAT WE DO

Based in LA & NY, we write, direct and produce films together. Our work has screened in festivals and on streaming platforms, and won many awards.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Stories shape culture by reflecting it. Entertainment can still challenge us.

Our responsibility as artists is to contribute to the conversation. We are committed to exploring lives that don’t often make it to the screen. To wrestling with formidable questions. To reaching for something wild, strange, and more meaningful than the status quo.

A place both thrilling and thoughtful. Profound and
obvious.

The ordinary and the absurd.
