A feature film by Carlton Sugarman.
Joey takes his music very seriously. The rest of his life, not so much. “The Amateur” tells the tale of a broke — and sometimes broken — artist navigating the LA music scene. Riding the highs and nursing the hangovers, his journey leads him through various experiences, both personal and professional, that shed a new light on the things that really matter.
Directed & Written by Carlton Sugarman
