While DDD gained Ms. Dunham and her friends accolades in the art world, her real masterpiece (in our humble opinion) was her earliest semi-improvised webisodes on Nerve.com, a 2007 series called Tight Shots. In it, Ms. Dunham leads a cast and crew (which includes Scott Stringer‘s press secretary/Terry Richardson girlfriend Audrey Gelman and Catfish/Paranormal Activity 3 director Ariel Schulman) with a tyrannical, if somewhat confused fist. Also, they all live together and hook up a lot.
Virginia Heffernan for The New York Times said of it:
Everyone in “Tight Shots” is annoying, hilarious, familiar and also totally touching, if you’ve ever had a soft spot for Oberlin/Bennington/Vassar/Brown people.
Unfortunately, Nerve seems to have taken down the video for Tight Shots, so you’ll just have to trust us when we said it was hilarious.
