The Chico Independent Film Festival Official Selection for 2018 Showings at Chicoindie.com, “Two Pictures” by Director Eric Stone – Seattle, Washington

Ruth, a burn unit nurse who is a consummate professional on the outside and a spiritual seeker on the inside, and Conrad, an alcoholic shipyard worker who dreams of being a cutting edge artist, are two seemingly unrelated characters. They live close to each other in the city of Seattle, and both long for some change in their lives, but have little else in common aside from knowing the same streets and feeling life’s highs and lows. Following their separate adventures over the course of a long weekend, between run-ins with strangers of all kinds, from raving lunatics to pointed intellectuals, the film explores a society made up of contradictory individuals co-existing within the same spaces and experiencing moments of disconnect and fear alongside moments of vitality and even genuine connection.

Filmed in the greater Seattle area with a large ensemble cast, and starring Trin Miller (“Captain Fantastic”) as Ruth and Wes Ramsey (“Deliverance Creek”) as Conrad, “Two Pictures” is the first feature film from writer/director Eric Stone and producer/composer Nate Stone of Seattleite Films.

Director Biography – Eric Stone:

Pic 1

Eric Stone is from Edmonds, Washington State. He is a graduate of Western Washington University’s Fairhaven College and the Seattle Film Institute. His experience as a commercial fisherman for a decade and his previous work as a hospital orderly helped inform the story of “Two Pictures”, which is his first feature.

Director Statement:

Two Pictures is my first film as writer/director, and it was made as an exploration of ideas that I find interesting: society being made up of individuals who are essentially strangers, and people who have a duality within themselves. The overall approach is one that tries to keep this duality in balance. The nature of every intelligent and consuming philosophical conversation I’ve ever had has been one of contradictions, and the final result has always been an admittance that people are lost and don’t know enough about the world, or even themselves. My end goal was to make a movie people will want to discuss, and that starts some good conversations between friends who’ve seen it. It’s weird and dark and sometimes difficult — and, I hope, interesting.

The Chico Independent Film Festival Official Selection for 2018 “Zero-Zero” Directed by Randall Whittinghill – Los Angeles, California

A down and out dad is ready to do just about anything to watch his team play the World Series—and that includes hanging out with his neighbor’s daughter.

Director Biography – Randall Whittinghill:

Randall refrebel 2234121

Randall Whittinghill is a filmmaker and acting coach with experience in teaching, production, and design. He graduated from California Institute of Arts with a B.A. in Theater Acting, and then earned his M.F.A. in Theater Directing from Sarah Lawrence College. He joined the Red Wing Performing Group and Phantom Limb Company as a set designer and puppeteer, where he performed in large-scale puppetry and marionette productions in venues across the United States, such as Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), UCLA Live!, and The Here Arts Center. Later, he worked as a guest teacher at several public and private schools, coaching beginning and experienced actors.

Director Statement:

I wasn’t going for an uber-real tone; I wanted it to be beautiful an almost magical feeling that reflects these rare encounters in life. And allow the acting to reveal the raw emotions and the ugliness.

The Chico Independent Film Festival Official Selection for 2018, “The Littlest Undertaker” Directed by Kevin Molohan and Rose Mendonca, Producer – Sacramento, California

176941_10200097246457687_403108289_o

Producer

North of Nowhere, south of Somewhere, lies the town of Thereabouts where the undertaker, Oskar, is a boy who has never laughed, never smiled, never felt anything. That is why he is on a quest to find that one thing we all need… a little hope. A first time filmmaker from Sacramento, Ca. and regular visitor to Chico. This isn’t a film with sex, violence or gore but it does have hope and imagination.

I hope you enjoy it.

The Chico Independent Film Festival Official Selection for 2018, “Pluto”

by Director, Tiger Ji – East Natick, Massachusetts

C764ebadc5 headshot

Pluto, directed by young writer director Tiger Ji, is a deeply hypnotic poem about the haunting lonesomeness of being a child. 

Director Statement:

This movie is very personal, so it takes patience for it to penetrate. Perhaps it won’t for many people, but I know it works for me on 47 different levels. Just like many other kids trying to make movies before me, I just wanted to make something honest. My hope is that it does the same to everybody as it does to me.
