A.J. Franchi and Vincent Martino were both born in Toronto, Canada and grew up down the street from each other. The two met in elementary school and became close friends. But it wasn't until high school that the boys bonded over film.
A.J. and Vince soon found that they enjoyed the same types of movies and humour. They decided to team up to recreate their favourite films and produce their own original stories. In 2009. as teenagers Vincent and A.J. started their own independent production company, Renegade Bros. Productions.
The Renegade Bros. have been the driving creative force behind over a dozen short films. Together they produce, direct, write, act and edit most of the projects they work on. Vincent and A.J. agreed to never pigeon hole themselves into any genre, deciding to branch out into dramas, comedies, crime, romance, sci-fi, music videos, documentaries and more. This website not only showcases A.J. and Vince's eclectic work and personalities, but also their peers creative endeavours.
Like Terrance Malick, very few pictures of A.J. Franchi actually exist. That is because he is often behind the camera as a director. Known for his dry humour and superior knowledge of everything related to film, A.J. Franchi has been making films since he picked up his first camcorder when he was just two months old.
Vincent works as a Digital & Video Content Creator at the City of Brampton. Prior to that, he studied Media Foundations at Humber College, and then graduated from York University with a BA in Film. When he's not making films, Vincent likes to perform stand-up comedy in Toronto. His next show will be at the Scotiabank Arena.
