WHAT WE DO
WE ARE THE SQUIDS
Our name, Squid Flick, is a combination of who we are and what we make. We call ourselves squids, because we work as if we had eight arms. We simply like to do everything ourselves or with the smallest crew possible. We direct, shoot, and edit all our projects personally. This keeps the budgets small, avoids misunderstandings down the line, and ensures that we can always deliver on time. (That being said, we’re happy to draw on our big network of talented filmmaker-friends for productions that require more hands on deck.)
