Hey, I'm Light and Shadow!

Los Angeles, California

LIGHT AND SHADOW PICTURES is comprised of the filmmaking team, Jessica Silvetti & Ethan Kogan. Silvetti (NYU, Tisch SOA) & Kogan (Univ. of Michigan, RADA) are a married, award-winning writing and directing team, who have been collaborating for almost a decade. Jessica’s distinctive voice is a result of her unconventional upbringing. Originally from Mexico City, of Spanish descent and raised in the US, she's been shaped by different cultures and views life through a multicultural and bilingual lens. As a Los Angeleno native, Ethan’s artistic expression is born from strong ties to his Lithuanian-Jewish roots and a fascination with his own cultural mysticism. Together they bring a unique depth to their stories and characters, which often contain an element of heightened realism.
