About / Contact

either/or films exists for the purpose of developing and creating films of beauty and artistic excellence that provoke the public to engage with the providential mystery of grace.

At the heart of either/or are founding partners Buzz McLaughlin and Aaron J. Wiederspahn, writers committed to the transcendent power of story and the timeless value of artistic responsibility.

Our desire is to create films that challenge, provoke, and feed the audience by offering stories of hope, redemption, and healing. We are convinced that the public is hungry for these types of films. The mainstream American film industry, with rare exceptions, has for decades largely ignored or even consciously avoided supplying this demand. And other well-intentioned and often well-financed projects have fallen on deaf ears because the stories being presented are manipulative and didactic, with audiences being pandered to instead of invited to use their heads and hearts to enter the world and journey of a well-crafted fictional tale.

For us, it is our privilege to tell good stories well, produce good cinema, and to tell the truth amidst it all. No world has ever flourished alone – without God, family, and community there is no world.  Without a world, there is no story. Therefore, we choose to tell stories about our world…the truth as we see it.

 

AARON J. WIEDERSPAHN is the writer/director of either/or’s first feature film The Sensation of Sight as well as writer/director of their upcoming feature Someplace Like America.  Before forming either/or films, he spent twelve years working in film, theatre, music and radio—freelance production jobs on independent films, commercials, and music videos to acting and producing for the stage, from years of touring and recording with rock bands to associate producing talk radio. He is an avid connoisseur of world cinema, counting Andrei Tarkovsky, Krzysztof Kieslovski, Robert Bresson, Carl Dreyer, and Theo Angelopoulos among his favorite directors.
