My Big Break is a feature film documentary which follows five roommates trying to make it in Hollywood who face the unexpected consequences of fame.

When Tony Zierra, an aspiring filmmaker with no money, stars or crew, resorts to filming the lives of his four struggling actor roommates, he never imagines the incredible twists of fate he would end up capturing on camera. Things take an amazing turn when three of the actors, Brad Rowe (Billy’s Hollywood Screen KissShelter), Chad Lindberg (October SkyThe Fast And The Furious) and Wes Bentley (American BeautyThe Hunger Games) defy astronomical odds and quickly hit it big. Meanwhile, the fourth actor, Greg Fawcett, is nearly driven insane watching the others get rich, famous and showered with attention.

It doesn’t take long for the unsettling reality of stardom to set in. Lindberg’s hope of becoming a leading man is crushed when he’s repeatedly told he isn’t good-looking enough; Rowe ends up typecast as a pretty boy and can’t break past his uncanny resemblance to Brad Pitt; while Bentley, who has the most explosive career launch in decades, gets caught up in the darker side of the Hollywood lifestyle. As the actors deal with life in the public eye and the ever-present threat of failure, Zierra struggles with constant obstacles while he tries to complete his film – including being scrutinized and blocked by the actors’ nervous agents. Ultimately, the roommates find themselves in a spiral of disillusionment and frustration as they learn the hard way that the Hollywood Dream is built on the bottom line.

A true insider’s look into Hollywood. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone get so close to what happens to people when they get into the star making machinery. It was very raw and very real. Every person with stars in their eyes should see My Big Break.” –Joan ProwseProducer/Director, Cinefocus Canada

From a unique vantage point, My Big Break explores what it’s really like to become famous and how, if you’re not prepared, you can be changed forever, but not necessarily for better, when your dreams come true.

My Big Break was directed by Tony Zierra and produced by Elizabeth Yoffe (Dogfight, Twin Peaks) of True Studio Media. With massive critical acclaim and after much success on the film festival circuit, My Big Break is currently available on DVD, VOD, and online streaming and download.
