Funded! This project was successfully funded on October 28, 2010.


A high school English teacher is beaten up by his own students. With the help of another teen, he hatches an elaborate revenge plot.


We made an ambitious, slightly epic, low-budget comedy in Texas this summer and now we need a little help to cross the finish line! See project plot description further below on this webpage!

Principal photography was completed in August of this year, and the edit is nearly complete. As Sundance 2010 alumi, Clay Liford and crew are set on submitting to many major film festivals (we're currently in the submission process). Finishing funds will help us realize this goal.

Specific uses of funds include money for audio mix, online edit, music and HD Cam dubs.

**Make sure to check our UPDATES tab for new features and EXCLUSIVE CONTENT. As we get closer to our funding goal, we'll be posting more stuff!

Clay Liford (writer/director) is a graduate of the University of Texas film program (BFA). He has produced and directed three features to date, including the festival hits, A FOUR COURSE MEAL and EARTHLING (World Premiere 2010 SxSW). His comedy short, MY MOM SMOKES WEED, has played over thirty festivals, including the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. As a director of photography, Clay has shot seventeen feature films, including the multi-award winning ST. NICK (SxSW 2009). WUSS, his third directorial feature, reunites him with his principal cast from MY MOM SMOKES WEED (where once again Sylvia Luedtke and Nate Rubin play mother and son).
