Synopsis:
Two low-budget filmmakers attempt to talk up some finance in this brilliantly barbed movie-biz satire played out against the backdrop of the 1977 Edinburgh Eilm Festival. Shot for next to nothing on short-end scraps of black-and-white stock, this deadpan verite-style comedy drama follows director Charlie (Charles Gormley) and scriptwriter Neville (Neville Smith) on the hunt for cash, cast and 'name director' Sam Fuller to shoot their Aberdeen-set oil-boom adventure 'Gulf and Western'. Along the way, they encounter a plethora of filmmaking luminaries including Wim Wenders, Stephen Frears, John Boorman, Bill Forsyth and Alan Bennett.
