Five Questions for Stephen Elliott about The Rumpus Lo-Fi Film Festival

24 July 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The debut edition of The Rumpus Lo-Fi Film Festival unspools this coming Saturday, July 30, at the Brewery Arts Complex in Los Angeles. Encompassing four features and two panels, the one-day event is, according to author, filmmaker and The Rumpus founder Stephen Elliott, an extension of the literary site’s personality and ethos into the film festival world as well as a kind of a Diy battle cry. Frustrated by the festival rejection notices he was receiving for his third feature, After Adderall, Elliot surveyed other filmmakers about their festival submission experiences. He published the results in a much-debated blog post […] »

The Rumpus Launches Lo-Fi Los Angeles Film Festival

23 June 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

What to do when your film doesn’t get accepted to any film festivals? Why, start your own film festival! Of course, it’s helpful if you’re the founding editor of a successful web site such as The Rumpus. That’s the case with Stephen Elliott, who was frustrated when his latest film, After Adderall, didn’t get accepted to any film festivals. Elliott wrote an in-depth report investigating a “rigged” system of film festival programming which makes it nearly impossible for paid submissions to be programmed. Titled “The Great Film Festival Swindle”, the article, published recently on The Rumpus, analyzed the odds of getting into various film festivals […] »

Trailer Watch: Stephen Elliott’s After Adderall

19 February 2016 9:24 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

“What’s the difference between a memoir and life?” “I’m an agent, not a philosopher.” That’s writer/director/actor Stephen Elliott quizzing his agent, played by James Urbaniak, in After Adderall, the director’s feature-length, rapid-response to the strange experience of having his memoir turned into a movie starring James Franco. Elliott has assembled a great cast, including Michael C. Hall and Lili Taylor alongside numerous authors playing themselves (Jerry Stahl, Susan Orlean, Michael Cunningham). The film is currently being submitted to film festivals. »

Mike Minor, whose hunky, dashing “Petticoat Junction” character Steve Elliott was memorably introduced at the beginning of season four, crashing next to the train tracks as “Petticoat’s” trio of beauties are bathing in the water tower, died Jan. 28. He was 75. His sister-in-law Marlene Duerr Dedderson confirmed the news on Facebook.

After the crash of Elliott’s plane, Billie Jo asks the family, “Do you think we’ll get to keep him?” while the family stands over the crop duster, who’s been knocked out.

Steve Elliott was a character on “Petticoat Junction” from fall 1966 until the series ended in 1970. Elliott married Betty Jo on the show — and Minor married Linda Kaye Henning, who portrayed Linda Jo in 1968. (Henning and Elliott were married for five years.)

He appeared on “CHiPs” and “Vega$” and recurred in 1980-81 as Brandon Kingsley, one of Erica Kane’s lovers, on “All My Children” (he »
