2022 Short Film Competition Results


Written By
Written & Directed by Callie Bloem & Christopher J. Ewing

Callie + Chris are a husband and wife writing/directing team from Los Angeles. Written By is their first short film. Once upon a time, they used to make music videos together and get paid in pizza when that was still a financially responsible thing to do.

As a former senior producer and creative director at Hulu, Chris produced video campaigns and directed award-winning promos for shows like “Castle Rock,” “Veronica Mars,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Marvel’s Runaways,” “Future Man” and “11.22.63” among many others. He’s made super bowl commercials, shot off Josh Hutcherson’s arm with a laser gun and he still collects compact discs even though it’s the modern era.

Since leaving the world of healthcare tech with exactly zero longing looks backward, Callie has directed and produced commercials and promos for the likes of Sega, Hasbro, FOX, and Hulu.

Together, Callie + Chris are 2022 Academy Nicholl fellows for their feature screenplay, Tape 22.
