Project X Real Story – Based On A True Event



Project X, the 2012 comedy film that depicts an exciting yet chaotic house party hosted by three teenagers, presents itself as found footage recorded by one of them and has since been widely criticized for its depictions of underage drinking, drug use, vandalism and violence – but is it real? But whether or not Project X was inspired by real events is yet unclear.

Project X Real short answer

No, Project X is not based on any true story; rather it is an artistic interpretation derived from real events and parties in order to portray a realistic representation of wild teenage parties. The filmmakers did draw inspiration from real events to help craft this realistic depiction.

Project X Real Long Answer

Project X is inspired by multiple true stories of parties gone awry that made headlines around the world, such as Corey Worthington’s 2008 party at his parents’ home, which attracted 500 guests and quickly degenerated into chaos, damaging nearby properties, vandalizing police cars, throwing stones at officers, and necessitating helicopter and dog squad presence to disperse it all.

The Notorious Teen Party that Made Headlines

Christopher Hutsell was another source of inspiration for this film. At 17-years-old Texan Christopher Hutsell hosted an illicit party at his parents’ house in 2011 that attracted 600 guests; charging $5 admission and $20 for unlimited alcohol he charged $5 admission with no limit for drinks available to guests at that party, featuring live music, strippers, and fireworks; unfortunately though after neighbors complained about noise pollution and traffic flow the police eventually came and busted it; after being arrested for selling alcohol to minors.

Filmmakers drew upon personal experiences as well as those of people who had attended or heard of wild parties to create this film. Screenwriter Michael Bacall stated that Todd Phillips conceived of making it about the most epic party ever; with co-writer Matt Drake they compiled “a compendium of many people’s experiences askew or exaggerated to write this script”.

The film used the found footage technique to give its story an authentic feel and provide more realistic characters, mostly shot with handheld cameras operated by either actors themselves or extras hired as camera operators. Cell phones, security cameras and news cameras were also utilized for different angles on party life. Furthermore, mostly unknown actors were cast for roles more relatable and believable by filmmakers.
