Robin de Jess made his big-screen debut in the indie film Camp (2003), in which he played Michael, a gay kid who is bullied for wearing a dress to his prom. While the film (which also starred a young Anna Kendrick) received little public attention, it developed a cult following among musical theatre aficionados and teenagers who identified with the outsider concept.
