Description: Mockumentary about would-be New York actress Lisa Picard who hopes to get more than a fleeting taste of fame when a racy cereal commercial brings her unexpected national notoriety. Earnest documentarian Andrew, who senses this actress's dreams are about to be fully realized, tracks her every move, attempting to capture the essence of someone in the seconds preceding their 15 minutes of fame. How do they walk, dress and act? Complicating matters even further is the fact that our objective documentarian is not so secretly hoping that this documentary about fame will help propel him to fame as well.
