Tommy Metz III

Tommy Metz III aka Tommy Handsome aka The King of Diminishing Returns has written and directed 8 short films that have shown across the country.  Along the way, he was lucky enough to win some awards including Best Overall Short, Best Comedic Short, Audience Favorite Film and Most Handsome Son (that last one was given to him by his mother).  His latest horror short “Static” just finished its successful festival run in 2023. Tommy also co-written and directed his first full-length feature film titled 30 NIGHTS, available for streaming on Tubi. Tommy has also spent over two decades as a Head Mentor for the Young Storytellers creative writing and literacy program for children. Tommy lives in Sherman Oaks, California with his better half, Foster.

Foster aka Puppy King Foster aka He Who Rules Over Everywhere The Sun May Touch was found running around on July 4th, 2015 and has remained a free spirit ever since. After allowing himself to be adopted, he now enjoys parks, leaves, squirrels and howling at fire engines. Due to his intense hatred for skateboards, it is presumed he was working undercover infiltrating a skateboard-related crime syndicate and lost a lot of good boys during the operation. Foster lives in Sherman Oaks, California with his worse half, Tommy.
