ABOUT FRANCO & BILLY
Writer-director-actor duo Peter Blomquist and Jeff Wiens comprise the entertainment entity known as Franco and Billy LLC, a film and theatrical production company founded in 1999. Sometime before the turn of the millennium, Peter and Jeff began making short movies about their tumultuous partnership that were shown at various underground late-night variety events in NYC and Los Angeles. In 2003, they made a short action film called Whalebone, which was a finalist in the New York City Moviemaking Madness Competition and was subsequently screened around the country.
In 2005 Peter and Jeff shot their own television pilot called The Independents that was an official selection at the 2005 Vail Film Festival. Most recently Peter and Jeff won the Independent Film Channelâ€™s Shorts Down Under competition, a short film contest sponsored by Tourism Australia and IFC. They were then sent to Australia to shoot a comedic web-series for Tourism Australia and IFC called Chasing Paradise. The first episode of Chasing Paradise is now being featured in this yearâ€™s Tropfest (Tribeca Film Festivalâ€™s Short Film Fest.).
