HUMP HUMP! Makes Fleshbot
Fleshbot—the nation’s most trusted source for porn news and gossip—wrote up HUMP! today. Fleshbot even encouraged its vast, horny readership to enter HUMP!, which begs the question: Is Seattle’s amateur porn contest open to out-of-town filmmakers and wannabe porn stars and starlets?
Well, yes—I guess so. Anyone can enter HUMP! so long as they keep their films under eight minutes, don’t violate any of the rules (no animals, no children, no poop), and turn in all the required releases. (A full rundown of HUMP! rules and regulations can be found here.) But local filmmakers and wannabe porn stars and starlets do have an advantage over out-of-towners: EXTRA CREDIT!
One of the pleasures of last year’s HUMP! was watching how filmmakers cleverly weaved the extra-credit elements—cupcakes, sandwich cookies, tube socks, and a photo of Stranger receptionist Mike Nipper—into their films. Who can forget the cupcake fucking the sandwich cookie? Or all the hot chicks wearing nothing but tube socks? Or the guy fucking his female slave after covering her head with a paper bag that had Nipper’s picture taped to it? Ah, those were good times.
Well, three of this year’s extra-credit elements are much more Seattle-specific, which confers a distinct advantage on local filmmakers. Out-of-town filmmakers, if any choose to enter, are going to have a hard time coming by a Dick’s Drive-In bag, burger, or location shot; a T-shirt from Babeland; and a Washington State Ferry.
