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.
