We couldn't make this s**t up!
Plot: A documentary that goes behind the scenes of the movie Illegal Aliens, and a filmmaker's journey from obscurity to moral blindness in the seductive glare of the media spotlight.
Story: The hilarious, outrageous, and ultimately tragic true story of one filmmaker's seduction into moral blindness in the glare of the media spotlight. What begins innocently is a film that seems nothing more than a "Behind-the-Scenes" tell-all, but Filmmaker David Giancola has larger issues in mind and the film quickly takes a dark turn. Giancola uses his tale as a modern parable about the dangers of celebrity and it's debilitating effect upon our society. Back in 2005, he wanted to break out by making a "Movie that mocked B-Movies". He thought he could manipulate the media by casting Anna Nicole Smith. In the end the media manipulated him instead as his star and one of his producers died in a media feeding frenzy. The film bombed, but the story was one of the most reported events of 2007, behind only coverage of the Iraq war. The truth is always stranger and more unbelievable than fiction...
Did you know: Filmmaker David Giancola spent over three years editing the film from hundreds of hours of never-before-seen video footage filmed on the set of the B-Movie; Illegal Aliens. Two DV cameras filmed every day during the production with Giancola and star Anna Nicole Smith as the Producer's "Backup Insurance Policy" as Ms. Smith and Joanie "Chyna" Laurer were commercially not insurable.
