Storyline Pictures and Airbrush Pictures are D-Dowd Productions' two short film subdivisions.
With the end of the "On All Hallows' Eve" Franchise, which ran from 2004-2008, D-Dowd Productions was ready to move in a new direction, which emphasized story and plot in its short films. Storyline Pictures began in 2010 with "Stranger," an inspirational Christmas film, which was followed by a mysterious horror film called "Footsteps" that same year. Though not rivaling the Agent 07 films at GK Productions, these projects were a great step up from the "On All Hallows' Eve" Franchise in terms of quality. However, D-Dowd Productions was quickly moving to focus on comedy and short series, with projects like "The Charlotte Ferris Show" and "Three Too Many" becoming the group's leading output. Thus Storyline Pictures moved to creating a new project roughly every other year. "Rectified" (2012) was another haunting film, with a developed storyline revolving around a mystery -- something "VOiCES" (2014) also achieved, but with a post-modern twist. Its newest project, "A Haunting," is due out late in 2017. All of these projects tell their stories in relatively conventional ways, while focusing on the plot, drama, and characters ahead of anything else.
Created in 2014 with the short film "People on the Street," Airbrush Pictures is the art-film subdivision of D-Dowd Productions. Like Storyline Pictures, these projects are interested in plot, drama, and characters, but they tell their stories in unconventional ways. "People on the Street" was a story told entirely through poetry, while "The Transcendentalist" (2016) used quoted literature to compliment a story that unfolded independently on the screen. D-Dowd Productions hopes to continue experimenting with new methods of storytelling with Airbrush Pictures inito the future.
Between these two subdivisions, D-Dowd Productions complements its comedy aspect with something more serious and dramatic, while continuing to promote the group's commitment to quality acting and emotionally moving projects.
