Collin Souter graduated from Columbia College in Chicago with a Film/Video degree and set about making his first documentary, Meet the Monkeys, in 2003. The film chronicled a year in the life of an educational theater group in Chicago called Barrel of Monkeys, who teach a creative writing and theater workshop in inner city schools. Collin followed it up with the documentary Break-Up Date, an examination of what it means to be single in our culture. The film went on to be screened at the Lake County Film Festival, the Rt. 66 Film Festival, the Naperville Independent Film Festival, the London Independent Film Festival and the San Francisco Documentary Film Festival. The film also enjoyed a week-long run at Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center in the summer of 2009. His short films, March April and Folktale, are currently playing on the festival circuit. March April has played in 20 film festivals around the world.
He is currently actively involved with the Chicago Critics Film Festival as the Short Films Programmer.
Multihead Productions started out as a documentary film company with the production of Meet the Monkeys, but has since branched off into narrative film and the wedding business. You can find out more information on www.muliheadwedding.com.
WHY IS IT CALLED "MULTIHEAD"?
Filmmakers and the like probably think Multihead is named after a kind of tripod. Actually, it is named after a character in a Barrel of Monkeys story, a 3-headed, Hispanic serial killer. There is no other significance to that except that while filming Meet the Monkeys, it made sense to name the company after a character and Multihead sounded serious enough, even if the character was far from it.
