"Hollywood.Con" is a mockumentary on the film industry with a Guatemalan twist. Similar to films "Get Shorty" and "Romancing the Stone."

The Boorems infused this message with flavors from each of their backgrounds. Mika's background is an actress. She has been featured in over forty major motion pictures including "The Patriot," "Blue Crush," "Hearts in Atlantis," "Along Came a Spider," "Sleepover." Additionally she has received accolades for her directorial short film and music video work. Benjamin Boorem is a gemologist holding a degree from the acclaimed Gemologist Institute of America (G.I.A.).
The story centers around major Hollywood "players" trying to make the next big Mayan feature film. The film introduces the characters in a talking head mockumentary style and eventually progresses into a full blown adventure comedy that includes attack camels and kidnappings.
The project is currently negotiating other star cast. More announcements of cast to come in the near future.
