First Look: Stephen Dunn’s Sundance Series ‘Pop-Up Porno’

First Look: Stephen Dunn's Sundance Series 'Pop-Up Porno'

This January, a series of shorts called “Pop-Up Porno” created by up-and-comer Stephen Dunn had everybody talking when it’s parade of paper dick pics premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City. 

Variety’s Peter Debruge called the series “an infinitely expandable, viral-ready series of short films designed to scrub the shame from the nerve-wracking world of online dating.” The interactive series searches for real online dating horror stories told visually through original handmade erotic pop-up books. 

The first trailer of the upcoming series made it’s way online today:

Considering that all three films were created weeks before beginning production on his first feature “Closet Monster,” starring fellow “porno”-maker Isabella Rossellini as a talking hamster, Debruge called the “Pop-Up Porno” debut “a hugely exciting development for Dunn, who ties with the ever-present James Franco for most projects in Park City”. 

Dunn and producer Holly O’Brien are currently on the hunt for more stories for the expanding series so anyone brave enough to share their online-dating misadventures might just find their most embarrassing memory translated into an irreverent pop-up book.
