ABOUT ~ Stephen Huffman
I was raised in Tucson, started to focus on film in High School and ended up attending the Art Institute of Tucson. I started learning at a young age with making of’s, I wasn’t allowed to watch horror but I could watch the ‘making of’s and as I grew in life there were a lot of things that happened to me and things I put myself through that really taught me perspective on some level, leading me to write a lot but more as a hobby.
In High School I learned a lot more about TV and Film Productions in a hands on way, my ADHD loved it, but there wasn’t a lot of film happening here at the time- through my connections, and TV seemed to be so life consuming for the people who worked it I decided not to pursue that.
I worked freelance gigs: short films, student films, got into my first feature once I decided to go to college to get my Bachelors in Digital Film and Video Arts. With a lot of ideas but not a lot of money, I decided to write, so I recently opened up an LLC, S Huffy Literature, where I’ve been pursuing alternative ways of telling stories I would rather see as shows or movies and this year a short story I wrote was picked up by a local film scene creative and we just filmed a crowd funder with a group of smart, talented, passionate people this past weekend. The short story is called ‘Lo Siento’

About Zach Rhein:
Zachary or Zach for most people is originally from Spokane, Washington and developed a love of the arts at an early age. One of my earliest experiences making movies was helping on a music video a friend.
I then moved down to Tucson, AZ where I continued my love of the arts and joined the theater department. While I didn’t pursue acting I rediscovered my love of filmmaking and am ready to become the local mogul.
While I may not have decades of experience handling a full fledge business, I make up for it in my drive and determination and am willing to learn from the school of hard knocks.
My current business is In Flight Productions, a local film production company ready to make high quality movies of all genres that give people a chance to see themselves in the movie.
