About

How did we all get so stupid? When did everything begin to go wrong?Mankind is reaching dangerously high levels of ignorance, and it is much worse than we think. Every day multimedia outlets deliver to our homes new and unprecedented levels of stupidity to behold. While smart people develop innovative and exciting new communication platforms such as mobile technology, high definition television and social media, the masses only utilize these tools to watch cats play piano, teenagers break bones, and the woefully uneducated argue sociopolitical issues. Where does it end?

Dr. Deiter Adams and partner Bert Engle are widely hailed as the world’s foremost experts on the science of stupidity & mental health. A self described “Masseuse of the Mind” or “Mentician”, Dr. Deiter Adams practices the art of cross-cognitive communication to slow the onset of dumbness. It was a unique talent learned during his years at the right hand of Master Mentician Dr. Wardin Charles, author of the widely renowned textbook “The Immortal Science of Stupid”. Their career in dumbness-avoidance-teaching began with a series of instructional DVD lessons called "Yo-Chi", mental and physical coordination through ethereal physics. It would quickly be hailed as the most stupid training program in America, and soon, the world.

Now as the pioneering co-founders of a revolutionary new school for ignorance, they need your help to turn the cause into a revolution! In this newest project, Deiter and Bert will educate their students in the classroom (and the viewers at home) on techniques and daily routines to recover from the disabling illness of stupidity, and illustrate how to follow the inner mindbrain to a greater life!

Risks and challenges

Adam Dietrich, Matthew Avant and our merry band of misfits have been making films, commercials, and other audio/video content for almost 20 years. Our team is full of multi-hyphenates committed to realizing an awesome finished product with great comic timing, solid performances and quality production values.

Every film is met with unexpected challenges and road-blocks along the way, and what makes our project so unique is that these questions are the very essence of the subject matter at hand. How do we handle hardships? How do we expect the unexpected? How do we overcome unforeseen obstacles? The fourth wall doesn't exist in our "supastoopid" universe, and the challenges of production become the challenges of our characters, and the obstacles we as filmmakers must overcome are the very same that our heroes must overcome on this journey. It is the fictional story of facts.

This short project is an opportunity to introduce the audience to our larger world of characters in real-life situations and give them a vision of modern society that is not only relatable and familiar, but a funny journey they can share with friends! Our truly biggest challenge is the pitfall of fundraising, and encouraging folks to contribute to our passionate posse of playmakers. If we can overcome this obstacle we are well on our way to sharing a good, healthy laugh with the world... and maybe even teaching a few things along the way!
