A handful of would-be hipsters end up falling into the good and bad sides of the law in this independent comedy from filmmaker Todd Berger. Wallace Cotton (Todd Berger) is an aspiring filmmaker whose latest project has gone bust after financing fell apart; needing money, he gets a job with the Los Angeles Police filming crime scenes. Eager to continue making some sort of movie, Wallace's producer Roger (Jeff Grace) starts working with him on a documentary about a possible serial killer whose crimes he's been following with the police. Charlie (Blaise Miller), who cleans up crime scenes of a living, has noticed that a number of recent murder victims have been attractive blonde women who are habitués of the indie rock scene, and Wallace and Roger think they have a story on their hands about a psycho doing away with hip chicks. However, things get complicated as the filmmakers get mixed up with police detectives, judges, musicians and Jewell (Suzanne May), a television reporter who used to date Charlie. The Scenesters was an official selection at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival.
