Through the Eyes of a Man Lost Inside the Hookup Culture Comes 'JADED'
When you haven't gone on a date in 4 years, WTF is wrong with you?
Yeah, I've said that before. I guess I am looking for the non-drug user, monogamously desiring, non-smoker, man with a job and goals that I find attractive and one that is not already married, dating someone, or part of a thruple.
Living in Fort Lauderdale, I've basically given up on dating anyone in this transient, vacation town as it seems all are already dating, into drugs, just visiting, or smokers. Yep, I'm JADED.
JADED -tired, bored, or lacking enthusiasm, typically after having had too much of something.
A look into the contemporary gay dating world particular to San Francisco, through the eyes of a man lost inside the hookup culture, while on a relentless pursuit for a way out. He asks all the questions, he tries all the things, he falls in love in all the wrong places. Playing both the victim and the culprit, follow him traverse a world full of contradictions, over-the-top self expression, casual drug use, and the age old idea of “free love” with all the consequences that follow. In a place, seemingly without any rules, how do you know which game to play when you don’t really want to play one to begin with?
Well it looks like he's having a lot of fun! We'll have to see what makes him jaded.

Created by and starring JD Scalzo, ‘jaded’ is independently produced with the support of crowdfunding. It’s currently being considered by several film festivals nationwide with simultaneous plans to premiere on Vimeo this fall.
