High-Quality Experience

Family Shorts was founded by actor/director Tom Kurlander. Tom spent much of his childhood in Pittsburgh attending Shady Side Academy. After graduating from Miami University (Oxford, OH), Tom went on to pursuit an career in Los Angeles as an actor and later director; appearing in such films as Kindergarten Cop, Flatliners and Young Guns II. 


In 2005, Tom moved back to Pittsburgh where he founded Family Shorts based on the belief that every family has a story to tell and a lifetime of precious memories to preserve on film.
