Film and Fishnets is the brainchild of writer-director Danica Uskert. Originally a site meant to host over a decade's worth of post-feminist, post-colonial, pop-cultural theory and showcase the work of other female filmmakers, writers, theorists, performers, and artists, F&F is now a production company seeking to collaborate with all artists, especially those interested in creating a sensual, seductive new sinema. F&F seeks to explore themes and characters not typically depicted on screen, portraying "deviant" sexuality and lifestyles with love, honesty, and humor.
The company is currently in pre-production on two feature length films.
F&F releases music video collaborations and tributes to favorite upcoming artists on a regular basis, and is slowly rolling out episodes of an interview series in which we get up close and personal with our favorite indie actors & filmmakers. We've screened work at VAULT Film Festival (London), Festival of the Moving Image (SF), ATA (SF), the Center for Sex & Culture (SF), Ludwig (Berlin), innumerable times at SFSU and CCSF, and other local venues & outlets such as "Frank Moore's Unlimited Possibilities on BTV" (Berkeley). F&F's next public screening will be at Porn Film Festival Berlin, October 25-29, 2017. Several of our shorts have been selected for the Fun, Political, Discovery, and Experimental Porn Shorts programs (see schedule for details).
Ms. Uskert also writes (non-sexy, family-friendly, mainstream material) for other production companies, websites, and collaborates with many Bay Area artists.
In addition to her writing and filmmaking talents, Danica is a costume designer, a puppet-maker and puppeteer, an animator, and has training in special effects and effects makeup for film/video, basic soldering and robotics, film theory, photography/videography, and is a damn fine cook. She is also a multidisciplinary performance artist, a total sweetheart, a former sex worker, an NYU Tisch School of the Arts cinema studies drop out, and a graduate of the cinema program at San Francisco State University.
Lastly... Danica has been made aware of that reddit thread & knows people have referred to her as "Asian Winehouse" and have been talking shit about her features and body type. To be clear, she's mixed-race Eurasian (Filipina-Slovak) and most often identifies as a disabled, pansexual, polyamorous Asian American hapa. Most of all though, she's a video artist.
