Dumb Owl is you...

or that feeling you get while speaking fluent gibberish. It's the part of you that loves the weird things only lovers do. It's definitely about the happiest parts of life. That's Dumb Owl. That feeling of silliness, of love and happiness that tickles behind your ears. That seldom felt moment of euphoria. That's what Dumb Owl aims to create.

Founded in 2013 by Ben Goldsmith and Leah Kilpatrick, Dumb Owl began with a 6 episode musical mini-series called  "Higgary Dunks and the 3 Bears" created by Ben Goldsmith and simultaneously came out with 36 episodes of "Lovers United" - a love story about two Millenial YouTubers who hate each others guts - created by Ben Goldsmith and Leah Kilpatrick. 

When Ben and Leah broke up in real life, they waited a year before creating a new follow up show that demonstrates the heart break of love lost in "Lovers Divided".  "Lovers Divided" was nominated for "Best Indie Series" at the 2018 STREAMY Awards. 

Now, Dumb Owl and Ben Goldsmith have earned a 2020 Telly Award for the show "Venice Beach Originals" which is a docu-mocumentary show that brings the people of Venice Beach to you. 

Ben Goldsmith and Dumb Owl are now endeavoring to create two feature films in the next two years. A Dark Musical Comedy called "Lovers Reunited" and more slapstick thriller "Spiders in Space".
