HOME/BODY is an OFFICIAL SELECTION for SHOCKFEST FILM FESTIVAL in New York for December 10, 2021!
HOME/BODY was created for the Corman Challenge 2020. Legendary film director, Roger Corman, challenged film makers to make a 2-minute movie only using personal camera phones and the property around the home to tell a story about the quarantine. Isolation became the main theme and conflict for the married couple in the short film and what happens when someone hastily tries to regain some freedom outside of the home.
GuignolFest Productions has produced plays and live shows over the last decade, independently and in collaboration with other groups in the Portland area. See images from some of the most unique stories performed for fringe theater.
Dylan and Julia love to collaborate with other creatives, in addition to making their own artwork. Click on the gallery to see images from past work for film, performance, and art. Their creative careers span from the early 1990s to present day.
Dylan Hillerman founded GF Productions in 2008 and is produced in partnership with Julia Reodica.
Dylan has foundations in graphics, theater, and film-- having directed, written and performed in over 100 productions, live and recorded, for over 25 years. He has worked in all stages of operations for theater companies and promotional art. Currently he is directing, acting, filming and editing GuignolFest's horror series, "The Night Attacks." Collaborating with other performance groups, he is an actor for many unique spaces in Portland. He is also developing two feature films for production in 2020, in addition to expanding the online movie channel to include a Lovecraft mystery. For more than a decade, he has brought together hundreds of people for Portland's Original 72-HR Horror Movie Contest to highlight local film makers, from novice to expert.
Julia has been an interdisciplinary artist since the early 1990's. She has performed, produced, and managed works in graphics, commercial media, live performance, and multi-media, along with talent and studio management. As an interdisciplinary artist, she was a pioneer in the field of biological art, using biopsies of her own body to create living sculptures that opened up new considerations of the artist as scientist, art industry ethical considerations, and new laboratory techniques for creative use. She produces, writes, directs, performs, and manages film and live performance projects, in addition to creating art with Dylan. In GuignolFest's horror series, "The Night Attacks," she acts, co-directs, produces, and co-edits the film. Life work also includes health and healing with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice, as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
