Fiscal Sponsee – Lucy is a Loser
Directed by Wendy Jo Carlton
A dark comedy romance from Wendy Jo Carlton, about creatively coping with heartache and depression, as queer drummer Lucy Gatlin, while living in a garage and trying to stay sober, finds out she has inherited something from her Aunt, and must go back home and face her demons to find out what it is!
“LUCY IS A LOSER will be my fourth feature film, and I’m happy to say that in every one of them, a queer character is the hero! These characters are usually awkward, skeptical, anxious, and also kinda magical”, Carlton says.
Wendy Jo directed her first feature, Hannah Free, starring Emmy-winner Sharon Gless, in 2009. Her second feature, Jamie and Jessie are Not Together, is said to be the first lesbian RomCom musical, with film critic Roger Ebert giving it a glowing review! And AutoStraddle.com lists Jamie and Jessie are Not Together as one of the “Top 100 Lesbian Movies of All Time”.
Carlton’s third LGBTQ feature, Good Kisser, was a Northwest Film Forum fiscal-sponsored project, which debuted on Netflix and Hulu, and is now on AppleTV and Amazon Prime. Her award-winning lesbian web series, Easy Abby, has gotten over 80 million views online and is the most-viewed lesbian series on OML TV’s Youtube Channel. Carlton is proud to also have been an Associate Producer for the GLAAD-nominated LGBTQ documentary, Circus of Books, which is on Netflix (2019).
