- 2002Alex and Andrew have known each other for most of their lives, but their friendship and collaboration truly began in the sixth grade. For a few years they filmed inside jokes and random stunts with friends, but in beginning of high school they set out to make something more substantial. Attempting to blend horror and comedy, they ended up spending the next two years mixing nearly every genre for the mini-feature, Just One Bite.
- 2003Following the improvised, sprawling production of Just One Bite; fund raising, pre-production, and rehearsals took the Team to the next level. Enlisting the talent of their best friends and some of their favorite high school teachers, and after destroying four out of five cameras and a Jeep Wagoneer, the post-apocalyptic, action short they were left with was certainly worth the price.
- 2004Seeing the end of their high school careers on the horizon, Alex and Andrew set out to make a movie that would encapsulate their experience of growing up on Vashon. Deciding to use a street basketball tournament as a framework for the plot, they shot their second mini-feature that summer only to have post-production progress delayed by their separate college ventures.
- 2004 - 2009Andrew spent the next five years attending the University of Washington where he focused on film, earning his BFA in Digital Arts. Only one of twelve graduating students, he had a unique and intimate experience that helped shape him as a filmmaker. During that time he was also a volunteer film projectionist at the Grand Illusion Cinema and fabricated and taught two film theory classes, one on film noir and the other on films that cross genres.
- 2006 - 2010In 2006, Alex was accepted into the revered Conservatory of Film at Purchase College in New York. While being educated in the history and theory of cinema, Alex shot short projects on 16mm film and experimented with documentary. Unearthed and Sabina, his thesis films, have won awards and shown in festivals in the United States and abroad. In 2010, Alex earned his BFA in Film, and was chosen as the Valedictorian Commencement Speaker at his graduation.
- 2011Finally both free of the ties of higher education, Andrew and Alex decided to start fresh and relocate to Portland, Oregon. Settling into their new lives and craving immediate collaboration, Raymond Carver's short story, What Do You Do In San Francisco, presented itself as the perfect piece to adapt into a new short film.
The short film, titled Men Who Don't Work, follows a postman who forms a strange concern for a family that moves into a house on his route.
