Comedy has always been one of the most effective ways of manifesting representation in storytelling, as well as offering people with an opportunity to laugh away the sorrows. It is also Calciano’s favourite way of expressing his own creativity through cinema. His first fiction feature directorial effort, Is It Just Me? came in 2010, and it was closely followed by eCupid (2011) and The 10 Year Plan (2014). 2010 was another landmark year for his artistic output, as it marked the beginning of his work on a certain long-lasting cult web series.
Written and directed by J.C. Calciano, Is It Just Me is a gay romantic comedy, released in 2011 and set in West Hollywood and Los Angeles, USA. The winner of The Rainbow Award at Honolulu Film Festival and Best Picture at Detroit Independent Film Festival, The film stars Nicholas Downs, David Loren and Adam Huss.
