I tell the stories my characters command me to tell.
A self-professed geek and DC Comics fan, Colin Costello is an Emmy-nominated writer/director with two family features – the theatrical feature release, "The Stream" (2013) starring Rainn Wilson and Kelly Rutherford and "Alternate Universe: A Rescue Mission" (2017) featuring Steve Guttenberg.
His award-winning DC Comics fan film, "Committed" about The Joker and Harley Quinn in couples’ therapy is still touring on the fest circuit and last year had his first book published, "Supermodels." Colin’s newest film is his directorial debut, the award-winning "The After Party," which is currently on the festival circuit.
When he is not hiking, going to movies or rooting for his beloved Philadelphia teams, Colin spends much of his time with his daughters Chloe and Max and their cat, Morty - short for “Mortal Komkat.”
