Stonestreet Shorts Take Off - Three Films Featured in Manhattan Film Festival and Licensing Deal with Shorts HD Imminent.

NEW YORK, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonestreet has become one of the biggest producers of quality short form content featuring young actors in pilots, series, shorts, web series and music videos with a 'story'.

Three of their own branded Stonestreet Shorts are among this year's Manhattan Film Festival selects: Trudy Gets Tindered, Until There's No Choice, and Fashion Nightmare. Stonestreet's Shorts are films 10 to 20 minutes that have a distinctive story or perspective, share unique and compelling characters and expose something generally unseen or unvoiced.

Recognizing the prolific amount and high quality of Stonestreet's catalog, ShortsHD is in discussion to license as many as 10-15 of their shorts this spring, with the intent to license more down the line.

"Since Stonestreet is both a production company and conservatory they have the unique ability to consistently incubate and create a pipeline of strong contemporary content which makes them a great partner for Shorts HD," said Jenny Hayden Acquisitions Executive for Shorts Entertainment Network.

Stonestreet's films and short form content often feature many of the alums from the Stonestreet Conservatory that exclusively trains NYU Tisch Drama actors and directors to be storytellers for the screen and filmmaker/producers after they receive their theater and academic training.

Actors such as Miles Teller (Whiplash, Fantastic Four), Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards, Manhattan) Ashley Skidmore (Younger), and Alberto Rosende (Shadowhunters), Xosha Roquemore (The Mindy Project), Renee Felice Smith (NCIS: LA), Michaela Conlin (Bones), Antonio Macia (Holy Rollers) have all spent between a time training in the art of screen acting, storytelling and filmmaking via Stonestreet's projects.
