A decade ago, when the dawn of the digital era produced better, more affordable video cameras, and when over-the-counter VFX software introduced tornadoes and T. rexes to laptop computers, it seemed possible for any old schmo to make a movie. And, to some extent, that was true. Ask Christian Doyle, local actor and star of a popular web series, JourneyQuest. He and his friends are currently in production on The Gamers: Hands of Fate, their fourth feature project. But as Doyle would certainly agree, there's a reason why a new Spielberg isn't popping up in every suburban garage: making movies is hard. Wouldn't it be great if you could just ... order your own movie, as if you were calling out for a pizza?

Now you can! Christian Doyle has you covered yet again. That's because he's also one of the founders of Something Wicked, an in-house improvisational comedy troupe at Harlequin Productions. The gang's new evening of ad-libbed shenanigans is all about performing a movie to your specifications. It's called Double-Double Feature; and if you can imagine it, they can bring it to life before your very eyes. They'll even throw in a couple of jokes at no additional charge.

But wait. Now you have to think of something original? On the spot?

Making movies is haaard!

DOUBLE-DOUBLE FEATURE, 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 9, Harlequin Productions, 202 4th Ave. E., Olympia, $10-$15, 360.786.0151
