“We Make Movies” Short Synopsis:

In the summer of 2015, cameras were allowed on the set of a local independent film.  What they captured was a hilarious and heartfelt look “behind the scenes” as a group of college kids spend their summer making a movie for their town’s Film Festival.  Cameras chronicle the tumultuous ups and downs (mostly downs) as egotistical student Director Stevphen Bixby rounds up his friends (and some bystanders) to help make his masterpiece: a movie that blends together all the greatest films ever made.
