Damon Packard is a Los Angeles-based underground filmmaker whose work combines original footage shot by himself and footage acquired from classic films, made-for TV movies and random pop culture detritus. His films are mostly comedic in nature and frequently spoof the Hollywood moviemaking industry.
For most of his career, his movies have received proper distribution and rarely screen at festivals. They are typically found online — either bootlegged or uploaded by himself — and he has taken to unusual distribution methods, such as randomly mailing multiple DVD copies to major celebrities, who typically become irritated by his actions. In 2017, several of his films found distribution via legitimate online streaming services.
