Director Statement

Rodrigo’s vision as the webseries creator was key for me to direct this project successfully. His unique vision on absurd comedy gives this story the sass and comedic dosage it requires for it to be funny and thrilling at the same time. Talentos Frustrados serves as an attractive story for our generation as well as a social commentary on how the entertainment industry still is very unfair and unequal. The fact that our protagonist seeks funding the way he does is a way of telling our audience about the sacrifices one needs to make to bring them the content they crave everyday to cope with their own precarious reality. The martyrdom of being an independent musician, filmmaker, comedian, etc, is represented directly by Lil Cupcake’s physical and psychological submission to the sexual market. We hope you enjoy our particular take on comedy.
