A mockumentary following self-described visionary student writer/director Cameron Fairchild as he is lured out of a self-imposed early retirement in order to make his masterpiece: his final student film. Trouble arises when Cameron gets wind that his former protégé and current rival, Jordan Kidman, plans on making a film of his own, pitting the two adversaries against one another in the upcoming campus film festival. Increasing the complications is a love-triangle-of-sorts involving Cameron, Jordan and Cameron's Producer, Lisa Morgan. Helping Cameron complete his film for the festival is a colorful cast of memorable characters, each of whom has their own views on student filmmaking and working with the one and only Cameron Fairchild. Written by Alex Montilla
