True independent filmmakers must see this classic movie.
This movie is a true independent film. Every single person who worked on this movie put their best effort into the dream of creating E.L.M. The total cost including marketing only came to approximately 200K. The raw stock was purchased second hand from a broker who bought it the T.V. show coach. The pieces of film were only between one and three hundred feet. The raw stock(Kodak 5297)pieces of left over film that nobody wanted because they were too short, were more affordable. The entire cast and crew were volunteers. It was made with a great deal of love and dedicated to Rick Harrington's son who passed away before the movie was released in 1996. It was a beautiful effort and a pleasure to have been a part of such an inspiring project. I highly recommend that anyone with a true understanding of how independent films are made, see this movie.
