Originally created as part of "Tiger and Rose," a YouTube project we used to produce on a weekly basis. This was easily the most successful (and highest budget) video we produced for the project. We wrote and recorded a parody version of "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas, and recruited a large cast for the creation of this video. Tarol Hunt (Thunt to his fans) allowed us to use images from his popular webcomic, Goblins, for the purposes of the video as well.
This video was created for "Tiger and Rose," a YouTube project we used to produce on a weekly basis. A parody music video, we wrote and performed the music in this piece as well as creating the video. While reception to the video was quite mixed, we were very pleased with what we were able to accomplish. Sexually suggestive themes.
Angels Unaware was created for "Project: Direct" for the Sundance Film Festival 2009
This was our very first project using our new video camera, a Canon HV30. Stephanie Michelle Lokelani filmed the entire thing with no experience on the more complex workings of the camera, since we were on a deadline and had less than a week to get the entire thing done, including editing. As a result, there are some exposure issues and a few focus issues, which of course we notice more now that we know they could have been eliminated. But that's just hindsight. We believe the film turned out well regardless, and it was an interesting leap into more serious and emotional subject-matter, as opposed to our usual lighthearted comedies.
This is a 10 minute short film we submitted to the Stella Artois Film Festival in 2009, in hopes of winning $50,000 and a chance to meet Kevin Spacey in New York. We made top ten, out of well over a thousand entries. While we didn't win the contest, being top ten meant that our film was viewed by Kevin Spacey, Laurence Fishburne, Dame Judi Dench, Sacha Baron Cohen, and James Blunt, the celebrity judges of the competition.
Created for i48 2011 (Idaho 48-hour Film Festival), Thunder Rack was written, filmed, and edited in 48 hours. This is not an official Two Cats Fighting production, because there were people involved from various production teams under the name "The Fighting Cocks." This one is hosted on the YouTube channel of our friends over at Airsoft Riot, one of whom was our cameraman on this project!
When Frida Became was our first collaboration with talented Boise musician Jared Hallock of Project213. Inspired by the life of Frida Kahlo, this film tells the story of a dancer who must redefine herself as an artist after a tragic accident. It is an imaginative art film, utilizing animation by Hamill Creative, and metaphorical symbolism throughout. Official Selection at the 2012 Sandpoint Film Festival in Sandpoint, Idaho, and the 2013 Sun Valley Film Festival in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Our second collaboration with Boise musician Jared Hallock of Project213, this irreverant music video features animation and motion graphics created by both Two Cats Fighting Productions as well as Hamill Creative. Written and directed by Katie Preston, this provacative work, which won Audience Favorite Music Video at Pollygrind Underground Film Festival in 2013, explores taboo subject matter against a backdrop of innocence, specifically tailored to shock and amuse. Not for the prudish or closed-minded.
A glance at the life and logic of two bored roommates. Or: drinking is a pain in the ass.

Written and directed by Katie Preston and Stephanie Michelle Lokelani. Original soundtrack by Jared Hallock of Project213. Edited by Gene Eilebrecht.
Five years after the passing of a mutual friend, a group of acquaintances retreat into the wilderness to carry out his dying wish and discover what may seem like the end is only the beginning.

We like to make movies and have become well versed in filmmaking on a budget. Utilizing as many Idaho resources as possible, we have created over 30 short films (most of which we refuse to show you) and a handful of music videos. Since our first "production" in 2007, we have grown to include motion graphics, green screen effects, and a crane and dolly for impressive cinematography of our beautiful state of Idaho. We're always ready to tackle that next project and enjoy working with local talent who have opened our minds and challenged us to think outside the box and create films that encompass a wide range of life and art.
