Welcome to a new series here at Cinematical where we'll shine a spotlight on different films premiering at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in January.

A couple years ago I was fortunate to catch a short film called The Shirt by an up-and-coming director named Drake Doremus. At the time I remember my friend telling me that Doremus was destined to go on to bigger and better things, and one look at the somewhat dry, awkward-yet-endearing sense of humor in The Shirt was enough proof to suggest my friend was right. Cut to 2009 and Doremus' new feature film Douchebag was just accepted to screen in competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival -- this coming only one year since his last film, Spooner, premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. Needless to say, Drake Doremus is a name you're about to become a lot more familiar with.
