Homemade Hollywood Book Cover

Homemade Hollywood

Clive Young, author of Homemade Hollywood: Fans behind the Camera (2008), traces the fan film movement from the 1920s, when con men made fake Little Rascals movies, to the Internet video sensations of today. Young will read from Homemade Hollywood, play some of his favorite clips of fan films, and will be joined by special guest fan filmmakers Sandy Collora, creator of Batman: Dead End and director of the upcoming feature film Hunter, and Trey Stokes who is the creator of Pink Five and director of the upcoming web series Ark.

Clive Young is also the author of Crank It Up (2004) which profiled rock concert roadies and has written for MTV, VH1, American Songwriter and Music Business International.

Organized by Darin Klein.

The program will be followed by a book signing at the Hammer Bookstore.
