An incompetent Hollywood producer, Charlotte Records, completely changes an original script into an entry in an awful horror franchise. They choose the worst possible actors and crew for the film and everything slowly spins out of control all up to the first day of production, where all hell breaks loose. Written by
Hollywood Makes a Change is an interesting short that kept me interested. The film is a mockumentary that farces Hollywood and the constant bad decisions made during the production of the movie. In the very first scene, the entire mood of the film is set up and you know things will be ridiculous. The producer constantly makes changes and acts like it's not a big deal which farces the producer in Hollywood who does make changes but they at least think about what they're doing.
The humor is what kept me going, in the director's commentary, Zach Zeman states that every line is improvised and I have to give Kudos to the cast for doing a great job. Not many times does improv work well. The camera shots rarely changed per scene but I believe that may have been the style of the film, what distracted the viewer from boredom was the hilarious cast and all of their personalities.
Hollywood Makes a Change is a well done film for a budget as low as it was made on and I'd like to see more out of the director to see what he's capable of.
