A Movie Set
Film (short) by Eduardo Rufeisen (Comedy and Drama) Actress A reporter with great ambitions is constantly assigned to cover small local stories that are nothing more than silly events disguised as news for ratings sake. His professional goal to cover big news like wars gets further away from him when his producer assigns him to report on a student feature film that cast a faded movie star from the eighties trying a comeback. This might be the last chance for the movie star to restart his career, because his wild life style during the eighties impacted his memory and casting possibilities. As the reporter watches the making off video and interviews everyone on the set, his frustration with the self-involved film students can't be surpassed by any new assignment until his producer calls again.
