synopsis
A man is going to a convention and has to choose a name tag. Unfortunately, there are only two options: us or them. While he tries to find a different solution, neither group will let him in until he has chosen.

director
Vinny Castellini has been making short films throughout his education career. He started with just small projects around his house in Grand Junction, Colorado, and now has made his way to Boston where he is studying film at Emerson College. Last year he won 3rd prize in C-SPAN's StudentCam documentary competition, and made the short film "The First Time" which screened at the Denver Indie Film Festival and ITSA Film Festival.
Filmography   

filmmaker's note
Unlike most of my short movies, "Us and Them" came directly from a message I was trying to convey. During the election this year, I was so baffled as to how people couldn't see the hypocrisy in how they treated the "other." Individualism is giving way to a system in which we are forced to take one side or another with no compromise. Through my work, I made an attempt to show that while people can be different, that doesn't mean that they have to hate the people that believe in something else. Ultimately, it is up to the viewer to decide if the film is successful, but I hope that it can at least spark a thought or two on how a person's ideology can end up alienating them self from others.
