A documentary following the exploits of a group of filmmakers as they take their independent feature, Ten 'til Noon (2006), along the film festival circuit, and the politics, pitfalls, triumphs and comic tragedies they encounter along the way. Full of interviews with important players in the indie world, this is a must see for young filmmakers on what happens when the shooting stops.

At the hotel where some scenes were filmed, cast and crew began to notice that they were working amongst members of the "oldest profession" and their "managers", all of whom ended up being very cooperative about helping keep the noise down when the camera rolled. A few even ask to audition for parts as extras. See more »
I should've realised it was a sign of things to come when the trailer for this film bored me.
Having watched several "indie" films on the strength of the reviews on here, and subsequently finding that my view is completely opposite to those other reviewers, I began wondering if it's possible I am watching completely different films from these people, or are they perhaps friends/family etc of the film makers trying to 'big up' their work? Hmmm.
Are you interested in seeing an amateur's homage to Pulp Fiction and 11:14, except done with worse actors, a silly score (undermines various scenes) and unbelievable jumps in logic? If not, then skip this film.
Here is my open letter to two of the players in this film.
Alfonso Morgan, please, please, please, stop trying to 'be' Samuel L Jackon a la Pulp Fiction. No-one can do what he does as well as he does.
Director, please come up with something original. It does you a disservice to churn out this stuff pretending to be Quentin Tarantino.
Simply dire, and I really cannot see how anyone could say this is a good film. It is a disgrace that people have somehow managed to put a score of 8.5 on this, the same as films like Pulp fiction or Goodfellas. It is no-where near these movies; a 4 or 5 would be a more reasonable average rating, I give it a 3.
