• About BlisterFilms

    Just who the hell are we?

    The beginning

    In the year 2009, a group of individuals met at summer camp. One of them happened to love filmmaking, and dragged his friends along. That group was henceforth known as The BlisterHood. Sensible parties, amusing inside jokes...you name it, we had it.

    What we are now

    The filmmaker wants to pursue this as a career. He wants to make his mark on this earth by creating films that inspire and change the world. Crazy right? To do it, he created a small company spawned from The Blisterhood known as BlisterFilms. We make short films at the moment, but are hopefully moving to full-length features in the future. Come along with us for this crazy ride.

    Origin of the name

    Some of you may be wondering, "why the hell would you name a film studio BlisterFilms." Good question, average person. At the camp in 2009, the filmmaker and a few of his friends were in a guitar class. Due to their being weak, their fingers would get blisters from pressing down on the strings. They would wear bandaids just to make playing bearable. Hence, the BlisterHood. The filmmaker couldn't resist calling the group this way, and the name has stuck ever since. To this day, we don't really know how to play guitar, but we make films and thats what matters.

    Quotes

    Every time we make a short, a new quote arises that we repeat until it's not funny anymore. Here are some of our favorites:

    -David Blouin (Macbeth: Duffy's finest hour)

     

    "We're being duped goddamn it!"

    -David Blouin (1984)

     

    *grunting and yelling

    -Everyone involved (Combat Boy)
