Filmmakers Kill Deer, Receive Hipster D-Bag Award

Filmmakers Kill Deer, Receive Hipster D-Bag Award
These two geniuses just won an award for their little hipster film -- and it ain't an Oscar.

Here's some advice for all you aspiring filmmakers out there: If you want to actually kill a deer in your latest cinematic endeavor, you'd better have the license to do it.


That's what the minds behind the indie film First Winter found out after killing two deer on camera. Apparently, the moviemakers intended to kill only one deer for their film about a group of Brooklyn hipsters surviving an upstate New York winter, but the bullet passed through the targeted doe, killing another deer standing next to it.



Adding to the list of what-the-hell-were-you-thinkingery is the fact that the filmmakers apparently had no idea you couldn't just walk out into the woods and shoot a couple deer, resulting in actor Paul Manza being charged with shooting both deer without a license -- and out of season.

"We are idiots. We didn't know how to do this [hunting] stuff," director Ben Dickinson told DNAinfo.com.


No shit, Sherlock. Maybe you're just too cool for filling out proper registration, or maybe you're just plain stupid; at any rate, we at Petersen's Hunting award the makers of First Winter with the prestigious Hipster Douchebag Award.
