With the 2010 Sundance Film Festival only a few days away, folks are scurrying to figure out their schedules and book interviews and buy snow boots. It's so insane and so hectic, I heard 10 seconds with Kristen Stewart was going for five grand on eBay (but that's just a rumor). Amidst the swag booths and celebrity firepower, though, are the smaller films in competition -- most of which feature actors, actresses, writers and directors you've probably never heard of before. One of those writer-directors on the verge of breaking out is a guy named Drake Doremus, whose film Douchebag is screening in U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year's fest.
Doremus has been around the festival scene for awhile now; first with his short film The Shirt, and then with a feature called Spooner. But now he's finally upgraded to a prime spot at Sundance, and I see no reason why he won't be directing bigger films with more well-known casts in the years to come. But first, Douchebag follows two brothers who hate each other, yet somehow find themselves on a road trip to find the younger brother's fifth grade girlfriend. For more, check out our Sundance Primer on Douchebag, which features The Shirt, as well a very cool music video Doremus recently directed.
Cinematical was lucky enough to score the first clip from Douchebag prior to its premiere at the festival. Check it out after the jump, along with Sundance's "Meet the Artists" interview with Doremus.
