"Newspapers and televisions around the world would know his name, but not for the reason he intended."

Birdemic: Shock and Terror is a film mentioned in the same conversations as The Room and Troll 2, but for its director, writer, and editor James Nguyen, it was so much more. It was a tale of commitment, hard work, and trying to break into the movie industry.

Film making is an art form regardless of how the final product turns out, and Evan Husney understands this. His VICE documentary The Worst Movie Ever Made? The True Story of 'Birdemic' is a must watch for anyone who has a passing interesting in film--not just for the look behind-the-scenes but for an insight into what it takes to follow a dream and how it became a worldwide obsession.

Birdemic is a very personal film for Nguyen as it charts aspects of his life including when he used to work in Silicon Valley, a region where shouting '$1 billion dollars' is commonplace.

Here's you chance to watch Husney as he spends two years on the road with Nguyen where he saw how the world reacted and celebrated the "ground breaking imperfections" of the movie.
