Anti-Films was founded in 2007 by Bill and Nick on one of their numerous comic book store treks. Just so everyone knows we don't like comics now. Bill and Nick had always had an interest in making movies, and together they decided to stop being total assholes and actually make some. Anti-Films was born. The name Anti-Films was conceived because the ultimate goal of this film company is to bring about the destruction of Hollywood and all of their shitty trends. After shooting their first movie, The Breakfast Gang, Ed Bauman joined on as Producer, and Ben Segal was discovered and added as lead actor. With more help from Ryan Knust, the original lineup pumped out tons of hits such as Egg Sunday, Doorknob, Snuff Film, and dozens of other shorts all leading up to their first feature - Feigning Sanity - a full length sketch comedy movie.
Following the release of Feigning Sanity, Anti-Films productivity tapered off. Ed retired from the group to pursue some California living. DJ joined on to the group in his place, and a second feature was written and production was started - Ride Em Hard: Phistfite - but due to budgetary and time constraints, was never finished. Bill and Nick took some time off to pursue careers in the medical field and Anti-Films entered it's first real hiatus. Until......
2014. Bill and Nick, now successful doctors in their respective fields, grow bored of saving lives and making a difference in the world and they decide to reinvigorate Anti-Films. First Ben had to be tracked down and convinced to re-join. He had taken to solitary confinement at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Bill dove to the bottom of the Trench with only a makeshift scuba mask constructed of empty, cut up sports drink bottles. Ben was so impressed with his nautical prowess he immediately agreed to rejoin and contribute his acting prowess.
DJ was just as hard to track down and convince to re-join. He had been suckered into an unloving marriage to Cyndi Lauper. Nick had the bright idea to electrocute Ms. Lauper's uncle, and then spirited away DJ when she went to the funeral. DJ was so thankful he immediately re-joined.
Grant was the final puzzle piece of Anti-Films. Grant was the star of a failing magic act in Vegas. For his last, and most dangerous trick, he disappeared off stage and reappeared in the grave of Steve Jobs. The four members of Anti-Films luckily had predicted this is where he would end up using Geometry and other types of science. They quickly dug him out while he cuddled with the corpse of the Apple founder. When he was unearthed he was reborn as the producer of Anti-Films.
Now we're back, stronger than before. We'll be pumping you full of short film goodness, and maybe even break you off a feature or two. That is, if you behave yourself :)
