The Sisters Strain have been full Actra members since they were in their early teens. As they got older and started to feel the urge to write/produce and direct their own stories- stories true to their experience in which they would appear on screen as well as run the show behind the scenes- this proved to be a bit tricky due to union stipulations. The pair never let that stop them and over the years worked with the Actra Co-Op to still be able to bring their stories to life and share them with the world. Therefore all of their films to date have been fully funded out of their own pockets. They have been incredibly creative and resourceful with their modest budgets, never letting money hold them back from their passionate expression..

Ever had too much fun at a Value Village?
We've always had a fascination for dress up and wigs and when we were younger we'd spend hours playing our "mirror game" which involved us facing each other as we'd take turns, one person changing the dance move as the other person mirrors- trying to make each other look as silly as possible- looking silly ourselves!
