Wisconsin Actor Gives the Inside Scoop on New Mockumentary ‘Flim: The Movie’

Flim-the-movie

Anyone who sets out to make a movie has to be at least a little bit of a dreamer. You probably even have to be slightly crazy to take on a huge project like a feature film.

Wisconsin native, Dan Davies, understands exactly what it takes to make a movie. He’s the mind behind the bizarre and hilarious independent film Ed Gein: The Musical, and he starred in 2015’s West of Thunder, a dramatic western, which he also co-wrote.

Now Davies is helping bring attention to a new project. It’s a mockumentary about the filmmaking process made in the spirit of This is Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman.

Flim: The Movie (no that’s not a typo), was shot in locations around the world and features actors you may recognize from BBC productions. But Davies is bringing it to the Fox Valley for a special screening in early June. It’s a can’t-miss event for anyone who’s ever dreamed of making their own movie.
