John Hunt Publishing (Roundfire) to Release LIGHTS! CAMERA! DISSATISFACTION... by Kim Cayer
Why couldn't this have been a film script I was asked to read!? In a straight read-through, I laughed aloud every few minutes. Though not all the book is set in the film business, the portions that are hit right on the mark. Ridiculous episodes, unusual characters and odd scenarios abound, but as one who has worked on film sets my entire adult life, I'm here to say that this IS the film biz and Lights! Camera! Dissatisfaction... captures it with two thumbs up! Bruce Pittman, Worthwhile Movies Limited, Award-winning director of films such as Where the Spirit Lives and Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron
Alice Kumplunkem can't catch a break - all she wanted was to be a movie star, but life had other plans.
A story about Alice Kumplunkem. She's overweight, has a bad haircut, and a plus-sized chest. Still, she wants to be a movie star. Eventually she's willing to just settle for one spoken line in a movie. In her quest, and through her determination, things only go from bad to worse. Her agent sends her to New York, for a bit part on a soap opera. Though Alice blows it badly, a meltdown in the ladies loo leads to work as a head writer on a rival television soap...and then her troubles really begin...
Kim Cayer is a professional performer and a writer, as well as a mother to three teens. She lives in Ontario, Canada.
