Andrew Ellis has been rooting around in the Treasure Valley's
low-to-no-budget film-making scene since 2000. Among the lessons he's learned
is that it's helpful to tailor movies to locations to which you have access.
Thus, if the owner of a gym in Garden City will let you shoot there (thanks Iron Pit!),
you make a movie about a gym in Garden City.

The Video Taper GuysThe Video Taper Guys were birthed into this world in the early 80s,
and indubitably, they never left. With years of Camcorder experience,
one has spazzed out over weddings and has taken the industry by storm
while the other has had a bodacious time producing an outdoor television show.
The real magic happens when Swamp Chicken and Danger Dad
get to wig out on a tubular Video Taper Guys collaboration.
It may not happen often, but when it does, its neat…super neat!

Unschooled ProductionsA small but dedicated group of high school studentshave parodied life in the halls of an alternative high school
in this mini-episodic sitcom. Students conceived of, wrote, filmed, directed, edited,
and produced "What’s Happening at Woodchuck High?!" entirely during school hours
and on a school budget (a couple of dollars pilfered here
and there from their teachers’ pockets). They are proud to bring you
Episode 1 and are busy working on more.
