Dave and Rich Christiano (born October 2, 1956) are Christian filmmakers and twin brothers. Born and raised in Waterloo, New York, United States, the brothers went to Hollywood at age 20 in hopes to produce films. When they became Christians a couple of years later, they turned in a new direction and since 1985 have produced films for the Christian film industry. Their first eight films were all dramatic shorts. Their movies have played on virtually every known Christian Television Network world-wide.
In 2002, they formed Five & Two Pictures as their distribution company for theatrical films and released their first feature length film in theaters, Time Changer, which eventually played in 310 theaters. They followed four years later with the UFO drama, Unidentified which was a much smaller release and only played in 85 theaters. They have produced their third theatrical film, the love story Me & You, Us, Forever, which is set for its initial release in 83 cities on February 15th, 2008. Rich recently completed filming The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry in the summer of 2007 with Gavin MacLeod in the lead role. It is being planned for a September 2008 release. Dave is looking to shoot his next film project in 2009 entitled, "True Champion", about a championship artistic roller skater with actress Stacey J. Aswad in the lead role (herself a former champion).
The brothers also turned to weekly television when Dave began production on his TV series, 7th Street Theater. The series began airing weekly on Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest faith-based TV Network, on March 3rd, 2007. It was the first ever prime time Christian drama series in the history of broadcasting. Twenty-four episodes were produced for Season One. Production of another 24 episodes for Season Two began in April 2007. The series also airs on I-LIFE TV, the NRB Network, and Cornerstone Television.
