Are you growing a mustache for November? Maybe growing the ol’ beard first? This movember…upgrade the month to it’s fuller, more natural, MOVEMBEARD. It may just change your life… More importantly, give here. Written by David Ross With David Ross & Michael Izquierdo And Risa Sarachan & Samuel Stricklen Filmed by Craig & Pete DiFolco
Regis kindly asked us to make a short video celebrating the history of Regis High School in Manhattan. We were honored. So we sat down with about 20 or so alums that attended a few events and gave them a little quiz on what makes Regis Regis. We put together a 10 minute excerpt of […]
If you’re already in the pre-production phase, you can use sites like Airbnb.com to connect to spaces that might have been otherwise out of your budget’s reach. Many of Sunnyside Films productions were shot in spaces that nobody ever dreamed would be a movie set, as in our recent release, The Last Day of August.

Craig told me recently, “When people ask what we do, I won’t really say that I’m a director or writer or producer, I just say we make movies.

Back in 2011 I turned to my pal, the filmmaker/director Craig DiFolco, frequent collaborator with Sunnyside Films and said, “It’s so weird to think that this is what we do for fun.” We had just wrapped an incredibly heart wrenching scene on our feature Last Day of August. We dug down to some really tough […]
