About the director

Austin Kolodney is a writer/director based out of Los Angeles (with family roots in Brooklyn... shout out to the Ellis-2-Coney Island pipeline of the Early 20th Century). When he's not making stuff for Comedy Central, Funny Or Die, SyFy, All Def Music, or various music video labels who like pay Net-120+... he can be found riding his bike in Silverlake and getting scammed by sketchy furniture companies online.

Filmmaker's note

We poured our twisted little hearts and souls into telling this dark comedy / thriller. It would be such a blast to attend as a cast and crew to experience a full theater react to the strange, funny, (at times violent), and offbeat tale on a large screen. Nothing better than hearing a theater full of strangers laugh, gasp, and (hopefully) clap. Thank you for watching 'Two Chairs, Not One'
