THE FLAMING JERK (Feature Film) Austin/Bastrop, TX
"The Flaming Jerk" is the story of a living man who’s not alive...Andy Masture is an assistant insurance adjuster, so textbook unremarkable you couldn’t pick him out of a lineup. He has lived in the same small town, in the same small room, his whole life. He's a great photographer, yet too shy to take pictures of anything other than cars. Wrecked cars. His grandfather, Martin Musture, is the opposite. Loud, brash and full of life - even though he is confined to a wheel chair. Martin is annoyed by who Andy has become and pushes him to open his own photography studio, taking photos of...people. Andy discovers a new found fame that ultimately shifts the equilibrium of his small town and forces him to decide what is more important: What people think of him or what he thinks of himself?
