In Danger of Being Discovered takes a retrospective look at the rise of the music scene in the picturesque seacoast city of Portsmouth, NH during its Seattle-like musical peak in the mid 90’s. This was a time when local bands were king, live music venues flourished and it wasn’t a question of if you were going out to see a band, but rather which local band you were seeing and where. Portsmouth, NH was being hailed by the Boston media as the next Seattle musical sensation, where at least 5 of the 55+ local bands were being courted by major record labels, consistently selling out shows, out-requesting national acts on the radio and some even selling over 60,000 copies of their demo CD. This was a time when the music seemed like it was on the verge of exploding and catapulting the bands, and the scene that spawned them, to legendary success… but somehow the scene never managed to get the notoriety it deserved.

Bighorn is a 15-minute, supernatural historical fantasy based on a true fact: General Custer’s bandmaster, Felix Vinatieri — an Italian immigrant and the great-great-grandfather of New England Patriots’ Super Bowl-winning kicker Adam Vinatieri — was ordered to stay behind at the 7th Cavalry’s Powder River camp and missed the Battle of the Little Bighorn where Custer and his entire regiment were annihilated. The Twilight Zone-ish tale takes place in 2002 — when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl on Adam Vinatieri’s last-second, 48-yard kick — and in 1876. Nathaniel Philbrick, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of the New York Times Bestseller The Last Stand, applauded Bighorn on his blog, calling it “an ingenious and demented intermingling of the Battle of the Little Bighorn with the New England Patriots” and telling his readers “you’ve got to see this film!”
Pete’s in love with his roommate’s girlfriend, a beautiful, quirky, and charming girl named Alex. They are never apart. They are best friends. And she is madly in love with the most effeminate heterosexual heartthrob since that guy from the Partridge Family. But as far as Pete can tell, this is her only flaw. Through hilarious flashbacks and Pete’s own commentary, we journey with him through the all too familiar anguish of enduring a friendship that you know should be so much more. With self-deprecating humor and insightful rants on what it means to be “right” for someone, Pete represents the hopeless romantic and loveable loser in all of us.
