Drake Doremus' second feature, Douchebag, premiered at Sundance 2010.  It's about two estranged brothers who hit the road before one's wedding.  It was inspired by Doremus' relationship with Andrew Dickler, the editor of his first feature Spooner, who makes his acting debut in Douchebag.

The twenty-six-year-old director, already a filmmaker for ten years, grew up in Southern California in the sketch comedy and improv scene. He was the youngest graduate of the director's program at the American Film Institute, and has also directed a number of award winning short films, music videos and commercials.
