Two teenagers spend their summer spinning signs on corners, shilling for predatory lenders. When the daily ritual of getting shit thrown at them goes too far, they decide to start packing heat.
It's about two sign spinners (Timothee Chalamet and Ify Nwadiwe) who are disrespected by the people driving past them, and they eventually have enough. Timmy brings up wanting to kill them, so they go out to buy some guns from the single mom in need of money to kill the people who showed them disrespect. But, things go awry in the deal, and the other guy accidentally shoots single mom in the butt. The single mom probably went after Ify Nwadiwe, but Timmy ran away leaving his friend when he really needed him. Then it shows Timmy back to spinning signs in the end. He saved himself, but at the price of losing his friend.

It was while researching a documentary on street sign spinners, Erik found the inspiration for his short film Spinners. With the help of screenwriter Cami Delavigne (Blue Valentine), a script was written about two hapless young sign spinners and an unfortunate single mother living out of her car. While casting for the film, Erik took a longshot and sent the script to Timothee Chalamet whose performance he had seen on the Showtime series Homeland produced by Fox 21. Based on the strength of the script alone, Timothee agreed to do the film. Rounding out the cast with seasoned Indy film actress Kristin Slaysman (Thou Wast Mild and Lovely, Masters of Sex) and comedian Ify Nwadiwe (Key and Peele). Spinners went on to screen in several film festivals (including a return to the New Orleans Film Festival!), before enjoying online success on YouTube.
Spinners was filmed in the desert community of Yucca Valley, California.
