Phil Cacioppo's "mockumentary" which follows fictional "Phil" as he tries to overcome his fear of dancing by searching far and wide for explanations of his dilemma. Phil is writer, director, producer and actor("?" as real Phil notes).

This was rendered March 10th, 2020. Phil started this in 2004. There is also a 2001 bit by Phil which was included here. After a hiatus WWMCD was back in production starting in 2017 although a recording was shot of The Wilders in November 2008.

This edit is all but final. There are various tweaks but nothing to really change the work. This is a small-res HiDef mp4 file (1280x720p) transcoded from the original mxf/422 file.
