Victor Quinaz, Anna Martemucci and Philip Quinaz
Created by Victor Quinaz, Anna Martemucci and Philip Quinaz, PERIODS. is an anachronistic comedy film series that reimagines historical epochs and famous works of literature through semi-improvised comedy and a unique cinematic approach that its creators describe as "Dogma 95 through a Herzog lens with a twist of Ozu served straight." The PERIODS. creators work their magic on a practically nonexistent budget, writing each short specifically for people and places they have available, and taking their inspiration from an impressive list of online creators including Brian Shoaf, Mary Grill and Matt Hobby, Chris Manley and Jeff Seal, Shaina Feinberg, and Damian Lanigan. The result of this process is a proprietary blend of high- and pop-culture, simultaneously highly literate and highly silly. While the immediacy, autonomy, and direct audience connection of the online space appeals to Quinaz, Quinaz, and Martemucci, they are also interested in expanding their reach into other formats, having released their first feature film BREAKUP AT A WEDDING with Oscilloscope last year, and wrapped their second HOLLIDAYSBURG just recently, in addition to developing several TV projects. Whether it's online, on TV, or on your phone, the PERIODS. team say they're "purely looking to do more with cool people."
