The Local Director Series is a premier forum for directors to share their work publicly and the event acts as a vital resource for the advancement of the West Michigan film community by increasing public awareness about independent filmmaking and the impressive film industry established right here in Grand Rapids.

About the Filmmakers

Get Super Rad is made up of Chris Rosik and Rob Cousineau—two 
experienced content creators well versed in both commercial production 
and filmmaking. Together, they've created super rad work for brands such 
as Ford Motor company, Chevy, and GM. 

As filmmakers, the duo looks to tell deeply human stories in a style that's 
unmistakably their own. Their award­ winning first feature "Future"—a black 
comedy about a clinically depressed, suicidal barista who is granted a do­
over from a time ­traveling addict—premiered at Genre Blast & Hells Half 
Mile and Music Festival.

Currently in production on two network reality TV shows slated to premiere 
fall of 2018, CR & RC are also finishing their work on a feature ­length 
documentary film, "Can't See Sh*t"— a film about Cousineau's friend, 
Brendan Patrick, a blind tattoo artist and musician living with Cystic 
Fibrosis. Also in development, "The Russian Five."
