Synopsis:
Filmmaking has become immensely popular in the past decade, with new platforms such as YouTube allowing anyone with a video camera to produce, edit and publish their work of art. But for the majority of aspiring professional filmmaker, Hollywood is still the ultimate dream. That said, all we hear everywhere is how cruel, unforgiving and unwelcoming the community can be to newcomers, and how lucky you have to be in order to make it there. But how much truth is there to all these urban legends? How realistic is it for an unexperienced filmmaker to make it in Hollywood?

During the course of this movie, I will be asking many professionals, at different levels of their careers, questions that I want answered about making it behind the scenes in Hollywood. Viewers will experience first-hand both the challenges and excitements of the business, what success means to people in the industry, what it takes to get there, and much more. The camera will follow me and my experiences as I interview Editors, Cinematographers, Producers, Directors, but also the Agents representing them, distribution companies, and others involved in the process of making a movie. I will let the people I meet and the stories I hear take me to places where most people don't get to go, especially early in their careers, and gather inside information that can help kick-start a college graduate's career and at the same time bring fresh and interesting insights to the established professional.

I think this documentary is going to be an eye-opener for young filmmakers around the world, whose biggest dream is to move to Hollywood and build a successful career there. The people I reach through this film are experiencing first-hand what it's like to make films in Hollywood and their stories, insights and advice are priceless and rarely available to people who are just starting out.

This movie is also for all film fans out there, who sometimes know their favorite movie star better than they know they're best friend, but seldom know about the people behind the camera, who are the ones that make it all happen! I think it's very important to give them the deserved exposure and credit.
