The Cockups (2015) Online
The Cockups are a washed up alternative band still playing, and living off their one college radio hit from 15 years ago. Deke and Cal are friends and screw-ups (hence the name of the film "Cockups") who are existing to play and live their rock and roll lifestyle. Jesse is Deke's long-suffering girlfriend and mother hen of the band. She tries to enlist her former father in law to help make a video that might help jump start their career. Stella is a young blogger that gets involved in the world of the band, and tries to help the band get up to date with their image in social media. Between open Mic nights, drinking whiskey, causing problems, the band members try to get a video done, with many complications. Issues that have layed dormant for years, come crashing down on the characters, and their relationships as pressure to do something increases. Featuring original music, this film will make you laugh, identify with the characters, and introduce you to "The Cockups"
