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 sin-ema. 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 shooting several original web series, and in pre-production on two feature length films. The narrative dark comedy series "The Business," about the exploits of a housewife-cum-sex worker, is scheduled to release more episodes in the winter of 2016, and features the talented Caleb Quinn, Jamie Sharp, Danica Uskert (and many others!) and cinematography and lighting by Brian Chow, Randy Sarafan, Tyrone Taylor, and Toby Nies. The shorter non-narrative series, "Damsel in this Dress," the experimental "free association" project, and the fetish series "VHS Nasty" can be found on vimeo and for purchase on VHX. In addition to these projects, F&F releases music video collaborations and tributes to favorite upcoming artists on a bi-weekly 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.
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, and a former sex worker.
