Blu_20Cover_original

Dustin Wayde Mills isn’t your average genre filmmaker. While other filmmakers are busy trying to appease the mass consumption of horseshit, a certain small group of filmmakers like Mills are doing what any filmmaker not following the Spielberg playbook of tentpole and blockbuster event film do: truly create art.
