Reinventing the Reel is a documentary short about contemporary independent film-makers’ attempts to change the portrayal of LGBT characters in film. The film begins with a historical perspective of the big-studio Hollywood treatment of LGBT characters, and then shows how that portrayal has changed, and why is important that it continues to change. This brief history is followed by an inside look into how specific independent filmmakers are attempting to breaking the chain of that negative history on a small scale. The documentary follows the journey of Casper Andreas, an American independent film-maker, as he directs and produces Kiss Me, Kill Me, a murder-mystery feature film about a group of characters in West Hollywood
