Short Film Spotlight: Is This a Date?

Fans of the Dekkoo Original Series I’m Fine have a brand-new six minutes and ten seconds to get excited about. From Brandon Kirby, the creator behind I’m Fine, and actor Lee Doud, one of the shows leads, comes the new short film Is This a Date?

This not-so-romantic comedy follows one love-lorn young man (Doud) through a series of encounters with other attractive guys. In each, he’s trying to determine whether or not he and his new partner are friends, fuck buddies… or something more.

Co-starring Christopher Charles Baker, Francisco Chacin, Wolfie Trausch, Logan Allison and Danny Plotner, Is This a Date? takes a fast-paced, funny, sexy and bittersweet journey through the treacherous and seemingly endless process of finding that someone special.

Is This a Date? is streaming now on Dekkoo. All three seasons of I’m Fine are also available now.

Still from I'm Fine: Season 3

Created by Brandon Kirby, an up-and-coming filmmaker with strong ties to the world of gay-themed cinema and television, the first season on I’m Fine centers around the recent demise of a gay relationship – finding both humor and poignancy within the related pathos.

The beginning of the series finds Nate (Perry Powell), an attractive 20-something, still hopelessly obsessed with his aloof ex-boyfriend Joey (Shaughn Buchholz). He also ends up blurring the lines between friendship and romance with his best friend Jeff (Lee Doud).

Season Two picked up a few weeks after Season One – with Nate is continuing to move on from his breakup with Joey while simultaneously dealing with the fallout of sleeping with Jeff. There’s also a surplus of lovable supporting characters with their own romantic trials and tribulations – namely Richard Stokes and Ulysses Morazan as the coupled Andy and Brian.

In the third and final season of the Dekkoo-original series, Nate has at last put Joey behind him and moves forward in his career and friendships. That is, until an opportunity presents itself that makes him question everything he knows about L.A. All the while Jeff, Andy, Nicole and Mick navigate what it is they want and need in order to finally feel… fine.

The new season of ‘I’m Fine’ is available to binge-watch now!

Two men meet for a passionate sexual encounter that ends up getting far more personal than either had imagined. Tackling issues of self-image, the prescribed sexual roles of gay men and notions of masculinity, this short film shows what happens when two attractive young guys cut through all the sexual tension and really start getting intimate. Dekkoo Films presents ‘Rubber Dolphin’.

The Pink Angels’ is an outlaw-biker movie from 1971 about a gang of gay bikers on their way to a ball to compete as drag queens. B-movie gold and, considering it was released in the early 70’s, treats its LGBTQ+ characters with respect.
