John Gonzales, award-winning filmmaker of "Y2K: Shut Down Detected", discovered horror films at an early age. But wasn't until he saw John Carpenter's Halloween, that he knew he wanted to make movies. He began writing short stories for several years, in hopes of making them into movies, before finally getting his hands on a VHS Camcorder in the early 1980's. He corralled his childhood friends into acting out his creations from kung fu fighters to flesh-eating zombies. He would edit his movies from VCR to VCR. In 1993. shortly after graduating from Fresno State University earning a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications, with an emphasis in production, he produced his first feature film, "The Crier", aka: "Demones", which screend at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in 1995. John moved to Los Angeles in 1995, pursuing his childhood dream. He wrote a feature-length script entitled, "Y2K", and went into production in 1997 with production partners, Slava Siderman and Trent Shumway, eventually creating the award winning short film based on the feature length script, as a writer, producer, actor, editor, and director. In 2002, John co-produced the feature movie, "Shining On", with his longtime friend and collaborator, Jason Fenton while simultaneously co-producing and co-directing with Slava, the documentary, "48", an inspirational season of high school football in the San Fernando Valley. Both movies are currently in post-production. He recently completed the short, dark comedy, "It's Over, Honey" and is currently developing and writing feature-length screenp;ays for all genres, including the horror screenplay, "Isolation" with Unhinged Cinema partner, Slava Siderman.
As a young boy in the Soviet Union Slava Siderman spent most of his time sculpting and drawing. He came to United States with his parents on March 6, 1979. After a five month journey through Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, and Italy the trip was over. With little language skills his parents spent the next year at night school preparing themselves for a new life and a new beginning. Slava spent his nights sitting in his parent's classes honing his art skills. These skills later would help him in winning scholarship awards in High School and College. His senior year in High School was spent in art classes where his love for the craft grew. As an aspiring cartoonist Slava applied and was accepted to the highly prestigious Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles, CA. Even though the acceptance was a high accomplishment, Slava decided on a local Commercial Art School, Watterson College. At Watterson his interest for moving visual story telling developed through experiences in his TV production courses. More education was necessary for his new found love of filmmaking. The next two years were spent at a Junior College (Los Angeles Valley) studying Film Theory and History. In 1993 he was accepted to the highly acclaimed Brooks Institute of Photography. On campus he quickly built a reputation as a positive and impressive worker. During his stay at Brooks he produced three shorts and won many Awards, such as the Eastman Kodak Film Award, Motion Picture Departmental Award, and the highest achievement of the President's Award ... being the 51st winner in the school's 50 years of existence. His class project "As Luck Would Have It" won the 1997 Cine Golden Eagle award. Along with personal projects and accolades he also managed an amazing resume with 55 projects under his belt, from student shorts to professional features... he did it all in just 42 months. As his award winning education concluded the contacts he made while at school paid off with quick film work and TV production. Slava has worked in the film and television industry since 1995 with positions ranging from grip to director which include over 100 features, shorts, commercials, TV Shows, etc. Along with the experience he has a long background of education in the arts and filmmaking mentioned earlier. He has an impressive resume of production positions from PA to Producer. With all that experience he began doing independent Directing and Cinematography work shortly after graduation. In 1997 he joined up with two aspiring filmmakers, John Gonzales and Trent Shumway, to creative the highly acclaimed and award winning horror short "Y2K: Shut Down Detected". This film brought critical success including high praise from the horror maestro John Landis. He followed that up with another joint venture, this time a psychological action thriller feature, "The New Chapter". The past six years he has produced and/or directed eight projects with recent projects in post production, both being documentaries, "48" about an inner city High School football team and "Angel for Hire" an amazing look inot a hardcore wrestler's life. Currently he is in pre-production on a Horror feature currently entitled "Isolation", with John Gonzales.
