  TITLE: REMEMBERING MEL
  DIRECTOR: Doug Harris
  PRODUCER: Taurus 7.
  CAST: Paul Babiak and Catherine Kuhn
  SYNOPSIS: REMEMBERING MEL is a docu-comedy which follows the strange exploits of an unscrupulous documentary film crew and the innocent subject of their film. Mel, a lonely naive man from a small town, is picked to be the subject of the documentary, “Portrait of a Loser”.
 
From the very beginning it’s quite clear that the manipulative filmmaker Denis will stop at nothing to get the kind of story he wants. He repeatedly sets up situations where Mel is destined to fail. Unfortunately for Denis and his crew, Mel, constantly being portrayed as a loser, is gaining a strong ego, a more aggressive personality and a very definite attitude about being the star of the film.
