Dekkoo Dispatch 001 – ‘Were The World Mine’

Welcome to the Dekkoo Dispatch, a brand new regularly occurring newsletter, where we will celebrate and discuss a title that is available on Dekkoo. Our goal with the Dekkoo Dispatch is to provide context and insight into the amazing content available on Dekkoo.

Today, we’re discussing ‘Were The World Mine‘ from 2008.

Title: Were The World Mine

Director: Tom Gustafson

Starring: Tanner Cohen, Wendy Robie, Judy McLane, Ricky Goldman, Nathaniel David Becker

Release Date: March 31, 2008

_________________________________________

Based
on his earlier short film “Fairies” (2003), Tom Gustafson (written along with
his partner and husband Cory Krueckeberg) directs the gayest musical adaptation
of a Shakespeare play ever put onto the silver screen.

Timothy just wants to sail through High School, avoid the bullies that tease him in gym, and imagine that the sexy captain of the rugby team, Jonathan, secretly desires him. But when rehearsals for the senior production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream begin, led by Ms. Tebit (Wendy Robie from Twin Peaks in a role that will make every gay boy who had a favorite teacher in high school positively swoon!), things quickly spiral out of control when a magicalflower that can make people fall in love with whomever they first see
(regardless of gender!!) falls into Timothy’s lap.

Were the World Mine‘ was one of the last gay films of the 2000’s to be shot on 16mm
film stock which creates a distinct grain texture that immensely contributes to
the fantasy-like world heightened by some fantastic original musical interludes
and songs from gay artists like Patrick Wolf and Mika.

Were the World Mine‘ is a spectacular queer fantasy where anything is possible – with
a little Shakespearean magic of course.

Watch it with: Your Prince Charming, but your high school girlfriend who you used to be in musical theater with is fine, too!

Mix it with: A delicious Moscato or desert wine.

 

The True Fairy of Rock & Roll lands on Dekkoo!

Bruce Wayne Campbell, known by his stage name Jobriath, was an American rock musician and actor. He was the first openly gay rock musician to be signed to a major record label, and one of the first internationally famous musicians to die of AIDS.

Called ‘The American Bowie,’ ‘The True Fairy of Rock & Roll’ and ‘Hype of the Year,’ Jobriath’s reign was brief and over by 1975. ‘Jobriath A.D.‘ spotlights his life, music, groundbreaking influence and the new generations of fans slowly re-discovering him.

His is a story that some may find unbelievable. But fact is stranger than fiction.

Jobriath A.D. is now available on Dekkoo!

In this truly impressive parody/homage, the first in an on-going series, Jayson teams up with a sexy Swiss counterpart to try and stop the world’s largest global hair salon chain, and their nefarious CEO, from launching a satellite that will threaten the very fate of human existence.

Paternity Leave might be the world’s funniest ‘gaymantic’ comedy’ – San Diego Gay and Lesbian News

‘A little bundle of cinematic joy…it’s a labor of love, laughter, and a few tears.’ – Kansas City LGBT Film Festival

Greg, a 30 year old web designer, is settled into a stable and healthy relationship with Ken, a criminal defense attorney. Caught in a moment of passion on the eve of their four-year anniversary, Greg soon begins feeling nauseated, fatigued, moody and “most unfortunately” fat. At his wit’s end and his boyfriend’s insistence, he sees a doctor who’s stumped and refers the couple to a specialist. To everyone’s amazement, Greg is pregnant. Shock, stress and fear settle in, and Greg’s relationship gets put to the ultimate test. Paternity Leave poses a modern answer to the age old question: ‘Are we ready to be parents?’

Two short films from Blake Pruitt are playing NOW!

We’ve just added two wonderful gay short films from director Blake Pruitt.

Blake is a writer, director, editor, producer, and part time drag queen living in New York City. You may have seen his short documentary 20MALEGAYNYC on a little site called Dekkoo (wink, wink) and it’s also been featured on Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish, The Advocate, and The Huffington Post.

His experimental short camchat (which has screened at film festivals in the US, Canada, and Europe) is a look at online sexual encounters and relationships through one young man’s interactions.

His narrative short, Read Aloud, had its world premiere at NewFest 2015.

Both films explore the challenging and ever-changing world of dating from a young perspective. Raw, sexy and edgy, Blake’s films never disappoint.

It also doesn’t hurt that the boys who star in both of these short films are drop dead gorgeous!
