The motion picture Everything Fred Tells Me Is True, directed by Emmy Award winner Eric Vitner of IdeaMachine Films and featuring creative contributions from A Halo Called Fred, is finally out on Youtube and free to view!
Produced by Words Pictures Movies, Everything Fred Tells Me Is True is the story of Philip, a man whose future has no secrets. His dreams are haunted by Fred, a ghostly figure with a beard and bowler hat. Through Fred, Philip’s dreams predict his own destiny. Upon waking, Philip sketches personal prophecy on scraps of paper, to guide his actions until his predetermined life lives itself out. There’s only one catch: Philip himself has absolutely no idea what his dreams mean.

Words Pictures Movies (WPM) was formed when Adam (Words) Dickinson, Bruce (Pictures) Meyers, and Eric (Movies) Vitner were given a month to create the short film “Territory” for the First Sundays Comedy film festival. The resulting film was a blend of their writing, art, and directing talents. This inspired the trio to spend the next year seeing how many films they could create from start to finish in a single month before finally throwing all caution to the wind and throwing all their efforts into producing Everything Fred Tells Me Is True, their first feature film. Prior to forming Words Pictures Movies, the three had previously collaborated on radio comedy in Rutger University’s WRSU production department, and on music videos for Lump’N’Loaf Records band A Halo Called Fred.

He has directed multiple short films and music videos with both Words Pictures Movies and independently; he has created video & film media since the mid-1990’s.
