Information about The Hillywood Show
The Hillywood Show is the creation of two sisters, Hilly and Hannah Hindi, using one camera for their parodies and sketches. They do most of the makeup and costumes along with script writing, directing and filming. They have done parodies of all the Twilight movies, one or two Harry Potter ones, a Dark Knight, Runaways, and The Vampire Diaries. They have over a dozen Hillywood Show episodes with characters like Jack Sparrow, Sweeny Todd, Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice. There are several holiday themed parodies - Christmas and Hillyween.
Fan donations are greatly appreciated. They have received funds from the Abby Weyr Support Starving Artists Foundation. There are some DVD, T-Shirts that are sold as well. And they are well worth the price. They put on a great show. Their actors closely resemble the movie and TV shows actors. They are both dancers, so most all of the parodies are musicals with great group dances. The Twilight movie parodies hit all the major points of the movies, so spend about 10 minutes watching the parodies is a good quick review.
I had the pleasure of seeing them the first time at a Twilight CreationCon in Sacramento, September 2010. That was the last time the full crew of five attended a con in our area, and close to last one ever. The crew played Bella, Edward, Alice, Jasper and Jacob. For the con, they would do little sketches as a way to introduce the next actor. It was great! To me that was the show and made it worth while to attend. I had a chance to talk with them. Sweetest young ladies ever. Their mother helps at the table and is a really nice lady. She looks more like an older sister than their mother and the sisters look like twins. I saw them one more time at another Twilight CreationCon in our area, it was just the ladies, no more little intro sketches. Sad.
So go over to the web site link page and click on The Hillywood Show and discover the fun for yourself. Their most recent one is on Harry Potter, Deathly Hallows part 2. Enjoy!
