In 1976, Frank Cavestani, Laura Cavestani, and Tom Weinberg produced a 30-minute documentary called Making it in Hollywood. It’s an insightful look at the business of fame and is still a strikingly accurate portrait of the Hollywood celebrity machine, featuring Shelley Winters, Sally Kirkland, Cissy Colpitts, and Tab Hunter, with appearances by Dr. John and John Belushi and many others.
More than 35 years later, Mathias Sorum watched nearly all of the 80 camera original Making It tapes in the Media Burn Archive and created something entirely fresh out of those dozens of hours of previously unused footage as a music video for San Francisco-based musician Vital.
