After acting in several films beginning in 1996, the 6'2" Swedish transplant Casper Andreas wrote, directed, and starred in the first of his signature all-gay, upbeat, micro-budgeted, low-grossing, sex-positive, lightweight romps, Slutty Summer in 2004. Next came A Four Letter Word in 2007, Between Love & Goodbye in 2008, The Big Gay Musical in 2009, Violet Tendencies starring Mindy Cohn in 2010, and Going Down In LA-LA Land
in 2011. Although he's acted in a couple shorts by other people, he hasn't directed a feature since then. Maybe he's honing his craft or maybe market pressures are exerting themselves on his art: His highest grossing theatrical release earned $24,140 at the box office, but those figures don't reflect his popularity or his many awards -- or his earnings -- at dozens and dozens of lgbt film festivals and in dvd rentals and vod viewings. This year he shot a short in Sweden, in Swedish, that debuted at a festival of shorts in Drama, Greece. Twenty years a New Yorker, he runs the production and distribution company Embrem Entertainment.
