The short version of the film premiered at the Sundance 2001 film festival. 'Scott Coffey' and Naomi Watts went back and shot more footage and turned the short into a feature length film. It was released in 2005. See more »
Scott, you did a fantastic job, and Naomi's amazing here!
I have been blessed enough to have seen this fine DV short at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. Scott is a wonderfully nice guy, and a talented director. His previous short, "Gray Matter" (once linked to the defunct, "Traphik" series, which apparently is a long and saddening story...) Anyways, this is a super film, and Naomi Watts emotes magically. "Ellie Parker" really captures the guerrilla film-making spirit! Mulholland Drive" is a product of these two talents too. David Lynch may be a genius (and my personal fave), but it takes talent to pull the performances off! Scott, I hope you kick major ___ on your 1st feature; you're a real gent and an artist with heart.
