An after-the-fact work intended to bridge between Roger Avary's adaptations of two Bret Easton Ellis novels, "Rules of Attraction" and "Glamorama", "Glitterati" is a feature-length re-editing of the breathlessly edited "European Trip" section of "Rules of Attraction". Victor Ward (Kip Pardue) bums around Europe meeting people both famous and strange, and having off-beat and often surreal encounters in a non-stop quest to completely experience the continent.

Footage was originally shot in October 2001 for a brief 5-minute sequence within The Rules of Attraction
. Shot as a three-person cast and crew (Kip Pardue
, Roger Avary
, and Greg Shapiro
), using two miniDV cameras, the shoot quickly blew up to 70 tapes worth of footage. Avary subsequently decided (during the trip) to buy the rights to "Glamorama" and attach Pardue to the project to reprise his role as Victor Ward. The 70 tapes of footage therefore are being re-edited into a feature-length piece, entitled "Glitterati", which will act as a sort of bridge between "Rules of Attraction" and "Glamorama". See more
