2 DISC SET: Features deleted scenes, outtakes, trailer.
While in production on a low budget film everything that could go wrong does. Bad actors, cheap sets, and a film that has no chance of making it. That is when the director Mike has enough. He breaks the news to the cast and crew that the film is dead but where do they go from there?
Well, Mike has come up with a crazy idea for a new film. In his travels to various local places through out the summer months he noticed billboards, bumper stickers, and people wearing t-shirts that advertise a concert coming to a nearby arena. Everyone seems to be talking about "The Fernando Valez Festival" but no one seems to know who Fernando Valez is!
So Mike and his unwilling crew go out in search for the identity of this mysterious man. Along the way they meet the most unusual people and each of them claim to know who he is but has a different story about what he is about. Some say he is a plumber, a coffee bean grower, a musician, a prop maker of x-rated items! It becomes clear they may never find out who is and when they go to the concert they will find out who true that may be.
This low-budget independent film is a comedy that, at times, is hard to tell if it is real or a movie. The realistic dialogue and performances by the stars creates a true illusion that you are not watching a written movie and at times seems like the scenes were captured secretly by the camera. You will laugh so hard throughout this movie you might just need to wear a diaper!

Mike begins to ask various people that very question who have the bumper stickers on their cars and who wear the T-shirts. The strange thing is that no one seems to know who this guy is! So that is where the film makers have an idea for a new film. The director wants to do a documentary about their search for Fernando Valez but he tells the cast and crew that it will be done in a comical way. The crew thinks it will never work but the producers believe they are onto something. It is here when this film becomes a documentary for the search of Valez.
Along their search for the identity of Valez they come across some very unusual people and no one seems to know who Fernando Valez is. Each person has a different story about who they think Valez is keeping Valez''s identity even more of a mystery. While the documentary rolls on the camera man, Larry, has something different in mind. He decides to turn the cameras on the crew and sometimes without their knowledge capturing humorous moments and sometimes dramatic moments. The documentary becomes a behind the scenes look at a film crew trying to make something out of nothing.
This film is a comedy that, at times, is hard to tell if it is real or a movie. The realistic dialogue and performances by the stars creates a true illusion that you are not watching a written movie but real footage captured secretly by the camera.
They start with a search for the identity of an unknown performer but end up with a film about themselves. Their journey will take them all the way to the festival itself where they hope to finally meet Valez but what they don't know is that they will be in for a big surprise! A very BIG surprise.
