SHORT FILM | COMEDY

This was a mock trailer we did for a student film in 2017.  It was a great learning experience being in a studio and running the production by ourselves.

ERIN HENNESSY - Three Dates

BLOOPER REEL

Blooper Reel of the amazing Erin Hennessy from our film Three Dates! She was awesomely funny and so fantastic to have on set!  Here's a bit of a preview of Erin trying to get through the lines with a straight face. Working with people like her is why we decided to do this project.

SHORT FILM | ROMANTIC COMEDY

The Hooligans helped a local film group to shoot their first film.  We realize this isn't our typical genre, but we actually do enjoy helping other filmmakers make things happen.  So, to answer your questions:

- Yes, it's a Rom-Com.

- Yes, we may really have a mushy center somewhere beneath our twisted exterior.

- No, we won't hold your hand through this... unless there's cookies involved, but only with raisins (not chocolate chips) just to remind you we still mean business.
