Nicholas Snow welcomes filmmaker Arthur Allen. A Seattle native, Arthur graduated from the Great Books curriculum of St. John’s College, MD. After supporting himself for several years in the Seattle Theater Community (and washing windows in the Space Needle), in 2008 he joined the United States Merchant Marine where he wrote Winning Dad aboard the USNS Gilliland. In 2012 he was recruited by the WA United For Marriage coalition as part of its Speaker’s Bureau to campaign for marriage equality in Washington State. In 2012 he began working for an Arabic translation company, and represented the United States at the second Baghdad International Translation Conference in Baghdad, Iraq. Winning Dad is Arthur’s debut feature film.
In Wining Dad, "Colby's dad knows his son is gay, but he doesn't like talking about it. He respects it, but ignores everything about that aspect of his son's life–he doesn't even know about Colby's long-term boyfriend, Rusty. Increasingly committed to Rusty, Colby hatches a plan to trick his father into camping with Rusty under the pretense that Rusty is Colby's straight friend and future business partner. Colby is convinced that, given the chance, his father and his boyfriend will get along great."
