John and Scott are brothers living in Charleston, SC. They got the film making bug in 2014 after attending a local horror film festival. They’ve devoted much of their time since then to learning techniques, writing scripts, and working with other filming groups to understand the complexity that goes into filmmaking. After attending the Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival they decided that making films would be their new adventure. Two years later, John and Scott had their own film shown at the Crimson festival. So after six films and five official festival selections, John and Scott feel confident that this is what they are meant to do. They don’t claim to be the best (not yet!), but they have a damn good time doing it.
