The idea of creating one to me is so delicious that I am in the process of putting one together to be my next feature film.  You fine people here on Bitlanders will be a part of the process if you want to be! I will share more about this when the time is right.

The rest of the crew that made this film include, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer. If you haven't had the opportunity to see this classic film, find it as soon as you can!

Another famous Mockumentary is Borat:Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.  This film can be offensive to those who are sensitive to these types of situations.
