Castro and Me (2004) is a 21-minute short movie created by Toby Jones.
This sitcom pilot tells the story of what takes place when average guy Brett (who just happens to be the roommate of Fidel Castro) attempts to have a hot date and an important dinner with his boss on the same night.
The climactic third act of Castro and Me is actually several completely separate shooting sessions edited together. Most notably, any shot that includes Steph was shot during the summer on Hi-8, while the remainder was made in the winter on digital. Naturally, the many glaring mistakes created a bizarre and jarring effect.
