The filmmakers involved to date have made many short films and all have incredible success. Their past shorts have been official selections of Sundance Film Festival, South by Southwest (SXSW) and many other very notable festivals.

The filmmakers of this short are also currently in Pre-Production for their first full length film which will be starring two Oscar winning actors. This film is scheduled to be shot this July in Shreveport, Louisianan.

Below are links to a few articles written about these filmmakers and some further info about their past and current projects

Their short film “Pioneer” premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2011.

Another of their shorts in 2009 entitled St. Nick which was shot in Ft. Worth, a haunting, Terrence Malick-flavored reverie, about a young brother and sister, who appear to have run away from their family and are trying to fend for themselves. The movie was accepted by South by Southwest 2010 (SXSW), where everyone who saw it agreed it was the best thing there. The film also had a small commercial run in 2011.

Their 8 minute film entitled “Knife” which was an official selection at South by Southwest 2012 (SXSW)
and screened at many other notable festivals including Woodstock Film Fest and Sarasota International Film Fest. The film was shot in Ft. Worth the summer of 2010. It’s an elliptical, dialogue-free drama that requires you to piece together its story of a man who commits a brutal act of revenge after his family’s land is taken over, presumably by eminent domain, for gas or oil drilling.
