Harrison DeWinter (Hunter Lee Hughes) just knows his movie will inspire others to save the environment, protest injustice and embrace bisexuality. But when it comes to actually making the movie, Harrison can’t depend on his quixotic imagination alone. He turns to Vicki Moretti (Elizabeth Gordon), an organized but lonely young woman who only wants to produce the movie to fill a void in her love life.
But Vicki soon learns she’s not the only one vying for Harrison’s attention…and love…in Fatelink’s original comedy webseries Dumbass Filmmakers!
In addition to its online presence on YouTube and Vimeo, Dumbass Filmmakers! premiered at Goethe-Institut/Los Angeles before screening at a number of film festivals and events including L.A. WebFest, AOF Film Festival, Queer Fruits Film Festival, Artistpalooza and Sons of Comedy. At L.A. WebFest, it won four awards, including Outstanding Director (Hunter Lee Hughes), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Jimmy Dinh), Outstanding Guest Actress (Dale Raoul) and Outstanding Score (Sergio Jimenez Lacima). It received press coverage in The Daily Dot, Boy Culture, Placevine and The Sydney Star-Observer, among others.
