On July 26, the Hammer partnered with the nonprofit 826LA for a family workshop on filmmaking. During the workshop, led by Mark Hayward of Sock Puppet Theater, kids had to come up with reasons why The Worst Movie Ever Made trailer was THE WORST and worked with their sock puppet producer to create a new concept.

Checking in periodically with their tough studio boss, the junior filmmakers came up with ways to improve the film’s title, overall plotline, characters and dialogue, finally sending it into production with the help of master puppeteer Charley (Argyle B. Stickensock). 

A new cinematic masterpiece, Bacon is Justice, was born!
