Released in 2018, this guerrilla film follows the life and struggles of three artists who are trying to get their big break in New York City. Squirrels was directed and written by Todd Verow. It stars Dino Petrera, Robbie Gottlieb and Catiriana Reyes.
Shot entirely in black and white, Verow’s film carries an interesting film noir feel to it. V is the unfortunate victim of circumstance, locked in an ever-present battle with the villainous Shawnith. A string of sexually motivated young men float in and out of V’s life until Christian arrives – the unexpected femme fatale, or male fatale as it were.
Avant-garde director Todd Verow delivers another explosive and sexual drama with his 2013 film Tumbledown. Inspired by true events, Tumbledown portrays an emotional love triangle between three men who share a cabin for the weekend. However, their weekend soon leads to a suspenseful series of drugs, sex, and dark obsessions.
A classically trained actor, Todd Verow’s adventure into filmmaking began at the Rhode Island School of Design and the American Film Institute. He took an interest in cinematography after realizing how much more comfortable he felt on the other side of the lens. Today a recognized veteran of New Queer Cinema, the openly gay Verow has built an impressive career for himself, often working underground on projects with little or no budget.
