Behind the Scenes of a Strange Film
7 August 2005 | by EnjoyablePresenceSee all my reviews

This is a great short film, very unique. Very Troyer and Phil Fondacaro play actors who were cast as Oompa Loompas in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. Here they discuss their trade in the dressing room while putting on the Loompa suits. It balances humor and seriousness as best as any film possibly could. They joke about themselves and more "big time" actors. Overall, though, there's a sadness to the film as we realize that due to the fact that these guys were born small they will never be offered the lead role but will be left dancing in the background. Vern isn't that great of an actor, but this film is definitely worth seeing, it opened my eyes up to the world "bit players" must face.
