Jeff Smith, of Ontario Canada, first enjoyed the creative madness of John Waters when he bought the movie Serial Mom.
He was unaware at the time however, the background of just who John Waters was. It was not until 2002 when, after much hype, Jeff convinced his friend to purchase Pink Flamingos and watch this legendary underground cult film. Inspired by the shock value, where his friend was just grossed out, Jeff immediately searched for other Waters movies, both old and new. Jeff read about all the Dreamlanders, with his favourite being Mink Stole. He purchased the books such as Crackpot and Filthy, as well at the Trash Trio to read about Flamingos Forever.
Coincidentally, Jeff is a young filmmaker himself, making a home-made movie annually with his family and friends. He began making short 15 minute movies in Grade 8, then pursued his interest throughout High School. Jeff, with his movie non-profit made-up name of "Diamondtiger Entertainment" (much like Dreamland Productions) renamed his recurring friends..."The Diamondtigers".
In 2004, Jeff completed his first comedy "cult" movie called "Rotten Tomatoes", learning later of a website devoted to underground movies with the same name. The movie runs about 60 minutes in length, but is his first movie to really pay homage to John Waters, the master filmmaker behind shock value, and all that society doesn't want you to see.
