| Decent student film
I heard about this short film years ago, and finally saw it recently. It apparently began as a legit documentary about a transsexual named Emelda Mae titled "Mae I", but after production fell through before completion writer/directors Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier made it into a mockumentary about their failure to complete the documentary. Confused? Smith and Mosier are always either in shadow, with their backs to the camera, or otherwise with their faces always out of frame. They, along with others involved in the failed "Mae I" project, offer insights into said failure. The film had a decent soundtrack, and their were a few funny moments.
