It takes more than just an idea to make a movie. You need a team, for example. But what happens when no one wants to collaborate, and everyone thinks your idea is… not worth it? ‘Let’s Make a Movie‘ is a short film that illustrates the challenges of such a complicated “artistic labour”, starting from the typologies established in conventional comedies that, this time, are embodied by two wannabe filmmakers. Somehow, the project signed by Dave Farese and Stephen Vanderpool becomes a kind of exercise in imagination that starts from the following question: what would a film directed by the classic characters from “Dumb and Dumber” look like? The answer is quite predictable, but it is not the final product that is important, but the process by which the two characters reach this result. Thus, the viewers who are passionate about this genre can enjoy the spontaneous and cynical (sometimes vulgar) dialogue, the well-known behavioural and discursive stridencies, the tragicomic twists and turns, but also the directors’ attempt to criticize the dilettantism of those who believe that cinema means only sex, politics and… werewolves.
