  • B-Roll

    B-Roll (2013)
    Video (Short and Comedy) Actor What does it take to make a film? In the age of point-and-shoot cameras, YouTube, and video phones how can you make it as a 'real' filmmaker. B-Roll is a story that satires the struggles college-level filmmakers have in creating their projects. When a 48 hour short film contest is announced,over-confident student filmmaker Chris Henson enlists the help of fellow classmates in order to claim first prize and secure a golden ticket to Hollywood. What ensues is a comical combination of conflicting personalities, big ideas, and bad CGI that sheds light on what goes on behind the scenes with a mismatched group of students trying to achieve their goal.

Spyke, a college freshman raised on The Criterion Collection and Cahiers du Cinema, enters his Introduction to Filmmaking class firmly believing that his first submission will be an unprecedented homage to Seven Samurai, despite his utter lack of experience. His class partner Nicki - a senior basketball player recovering from a debilitating injury - and boozy roommate Ed also challenge his lofty goals. As Spyke's struggle to cinematically revive the Japanese Edo period conflicts with Nicki's pragmatism and Ed's delinquency, he is forced to re-evaluate his artistic purpose.
