“Mope” is the term reserved in porn jargon for actors who occupy the lowest and most degrading position in the industry. Try as they might, Steven Driver and Tom Dong never managed to shake off this label, but they did leave their mark for a series of much more bizarre reasons, giving rise to one of the most sordid, zany and tragic episodes in the history of pornography, which Mope dramatizes in the form of an extreme comedy.
A USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate, he’s directed videos for Switchfoot, Fu Manchu, Lil’ Romeo, and Spose, as well as campaigns for Burger King and Fox Sports. Mope is his debut feature.
