HOLLYWOOD BLACKOUT & Other Shorts
A surreal, psychedelic, and wacky mockumentary about the pursuit of the Hollywood Dream - shot at the actual, publicly inaccessible Hollywood sign overlooking Los Angeles.
By the producers of 'BOOKWARS' (Terrific - LA Times) and 'LOST IN NEW MEXICO' (Great Road Pic - Angelika NYC)
SYNOPSIS: A massive, rolling blackout across Hollywood interrupts the phone call of a lifetime for struggling screenwriter Tim Little. Desperate to sell his script, Tim attempts to claw his way uphill to the ultimate power source in Tinsle Town: the 'tower of power' near the legendary Hollywood sign, where he's convinced he can find a live outlet to charge his phone.
On the way, he's bitten by a rattlesnake and slowly goes mad from dehydration as he discovers relics of the Days of Entertainment Past: an old Rolling Stones record buried in the sand...a stamped penny from a Niagara Falls arcade.
Shot guerilla style at the actual Hollywood sign overlooking LA, the filmmakers evaded police dogs and helicopters to make the ultimate commentary on the pursuit of power in Hollywood, USA.
"HOLLYWOOD BLACKOUT is an unexpected, psychedelic trip into the darkest heart of the Hollywood Dream"
