Storyline

Charlie [Johnny Sneed] comes from a long line of storytellers from Muncie, Indiana. He left his Midwestern roots behind to fulfill his dream of becoming a big-time writer/director in Hollywood - but making it in Los Angeles is proving more difficult than he could have imagined. His most recent screenplay lands with a hollow thud and now his agent [Laurence Rosenthal] has served him notice, 'Bring me something I can sell. Otherwise, pack your bags, Charlie. You're back on the bus to Muncie.' And it only gets worse. The only directing job he can get is shooting wedding videos, his attempts to fit in at a Hollywood party are disastrous, and worst of all, a surprise meeting with Shannon Elizabeth [as herself] earns him a reputation in the tabloids as a sex-craved pervert. Now, Charlie will have to rely on the natural gifts of any Irish kid from the mid-west; a love of alcohol and the tradition of telling outrageously wild tall-tales. Based on a series of short stories by Emmy-winning ... Written by Anonymous

Short, smart and good

"Charlie is just a guy from Indiana trying to make it in Hollywood. To keep his dream alive, he'll have to rely the gifts of every Irish kid from the mid-west: a love of booze and the ability to tell outrageously wild tall-tales."

The film is not the typically "a young man trying to make it in Hollywood" story.

It is funny to see how he "makes it" in a different way (drinking and telling outrageously wild tall-tales).

The actors (Johnny Sneed as Charlie and Shannon Elizabeth as herself) perform well and the story is good and the characters are more complex than you'd expect.

It's a smart funny short and you should see it!!!

Short film making at its best.
