In 2007, Robert announced a film he was working on entitled Lakeside Has No Lake, where 4 guys try to make a fake ghost video and post it on the internet so the world thinks that their town is haunted. This was later tweaked into Joe Cam. Pre-production began sometime in December 2007, but the project wasn't announced until April. A few days later, on April 6, filming had begun. Screenshots of the film were released in May, and in July,  a teaser trailer was released, showing that the film was moving along and wouldn't seem to be cancelled anytime soon.


Unfortunately, Sammie Penrod moved half-way through production, and Robert had to drive back and forth to Sammie's to shoot his scenes. So sometime in 2009, Robert was forced to cancel the project.
