It's been two long years since the sharp-witted Jay McCarroll was dubbed "the next great American designer" on season one of reality TV's Project Runway, and he's anxious to finally show his first line of clothing. The feature documentary, "Eleven Minutes," chronicles his year-long journey preparing his first independent runway show for New York's Fashion Week in Bryant Park and the subsequent selling of his line to stores. The result is an in-depth, painfully raw and humorous exploration of the creative process and the constant conflict of balancing commerce with art, fame with talent, and reality-TV with actual reality.

Must See!
6 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fabulous movie - Jay McCarroll at his best. The movie is real and raw, giving a true glimpse into the life of not only a designer, but an edgy artist on the brink of stardom, fortune and fame within the cut throat world of the fashion industry. The movie, a documentary, allows you to watch Jay's entire creative process. From his initial sketches to the production of the line, to the big show, to the subsequent selling of the line, this move explores the nitty gritty industry and the decision making process. It shows what an artist must go through in order for their work and voice to be heard above all the other noise. Its only playing once more in Philadelphia before it moves on to other cities - make sure you don't miss it! It is an inspiration to any artist. A must see!
