When three wildly ambitious but so-far unsuccessful producers asked documentary-maker Harvey Hubbell V to work on their low-budget movie as the 1st Assistant Director, he said yes – if they'd let him make a documentary about it. Loop Dreams is the zany but endearing result – a funny, sexy, unflinching look at the world of low budget filmmaking.
With the sometimes reluctant cooperation of the producers, Hubbell and his crew documented the making of Blackmale, which featured Bokeem Woodbine (3000 Miles to Graceland, City of Angels, Dead Presidents), Roger Rees (The Scorpion King, The West Wing, Cheers!), Justin Pierce (Kids, Pigeonholed, Next Friday), Eric Todd Dellums (The Color of Friendship, Homicide), and Sascha Knopf (Shallow Hal, What's the Worst That Could Happen?, The Trade).
A devoted but underpaid (or unpaid) crew...stars pummeled in bar room fights and nearly run over on location...sixteen hour shifts and crew rebellions...off-camera love and warfare...and the joy of working together to make something happen...Loop Dreams shows the wild ups and downs of making a movie on a shoestring.
Says director Harvey Hubbell V, "When the smoke clears and the battle is over, there'll be nothing left behind – except, of course, a movie. But what it took to make it – that's what I wanted to document. The dreams and the battles ... the heartache and laughter... the treachery and the debauchery, on the set of a film called Blackmale."
Loop Dreams is a hit on the festival circuit, most recently winning 3 Boston/New England Emmy Awards and the Gold World Medal for Comedy at The New York Festivals. It’s Harvey’s first feature-length documentary.
