Storyline

A hilarious and heartfelt look "behind the scenes" as a group of college kids spend their summer making a movie for their town's Film Festival. Cameras chronicle the tumultuous ups and downs (mostly downs) as an egotistical student Director rounds up his friends (and some bystanders) to help make his masterpiece: a movie that blends together all the greatest films ever made.

WE MAKE MOVIES is a very funny and sarcastic take on indie filmmakers!
27 November 2017 | by ryanbartongrimleySee all my reviews

WE MAKE MOVIES is a very funny and sarcastic take on indie filmmakers and filmmaking in general! Being an indie filmmaker myself, I laughed out loud many times, recognizing moments from my own journey in this film. I've been the guy trying to get the "big names" to "take the festivals by storm" many times, proving that life imitates art, or vice versa. At the end of the day, We Make Movies is full of heart and genuine laughs. It's well-made and uses it's budgetary restrictions to it's advantage concentrating on good performances and good-old-fashioned story- telling. Bravo!
