Storyline

A documentary crew follows the troubled production of Clockmen: The Musical, an adaptation of a graphic novel by an eccentric British author rumored to have cursed any adaptations of his work. Genius Shakespeare director Danielle Trumbly and rock music sensation Jons are doing all they can to make this crazy idea for a show work, but the lead actress Brina Lisette is struggling with the stress of her first big stage role... and, if she is to be believed, with forces beyond understanding. Written by Reuben Baron

Admirable work
23 June 2015 | by GjcushingSee all my reviews

Not a perfect film, but one of promise, seven out of ten is a given based not on the quality of the presentation alone but on the overall quality of the intention in addition to it's presentation. Many of the intrinsic issues with the film seem not to be a construct of poor film making but of non-ideal situations.

The story, however, is interesting and at a brisk 40 minutes it does not drag. The "mockumentary" style is fun and stays mostly on point. The film maker applies a nerdist sense of comedy likely to be found enjoyable by the comic book collecting ilk.

It is easily followed and there are several moments of inspired performance given by the films star. It is not the end all be all of mockumentary, but it it shows promise.
