“A dark comedy about a womanizing blogger who falls in love.”
No, this isn’t a film about me.
Writer/director Tahir Jetter’s past short film work has been featured on this blog (he also penned a filmmaker diary series last year, while working on his web series “Hard Times,” which was picked up by Issa Rae’s Color Creative Network). The filmmaker is now prepping to make his feature film debut, which will shoot this summer, and is currently casting for the SAG production.
