Mexico: Up Next! Elisa Miller Preps Bakery Tale

Elisa Miller

Co-scribe and co-producer of Cabos Discovery co-prod forum entry, ‘Skin Deep’

Producer, director and writer Elisa Miller comes to the Cabos Discovery co-production forum with “Skin Deep” (“A Flor de Piel”), the fiction feature debut of video artist/docu helmer Paulina del Paso that Miller has co-written with Del Paso, and will co-produce with Nicolas and Sebastian Celis of Pimienta Films.

“Skin Deep,” the tale of a young girl’s sexual awakening in a bakery, is foremost a project among old friends and collaborators. Del Paso edited Miller’s first docu, “About Sarah,” and shot the ‘Making Of’ film about Miller’s second feature “El Placer es Mio” (“The Pleasure is Mine”), a recent winner of the Best First/Second Feature prize at Morelia.

Nicolas Celis’s first assistant producing credit was for Miller’s Cannes Palme D’Or award-winning short “Ver Llover” ten years ago.

“I’ve been producing my own shorts and other projects from the start; but I’ve recently discovered that I love to collaborate with other writers,” says Miller, whose first co-writing experience was with Argentine scribe Gabriela Vidal for “El Placer es Mio,” and now with Del Paso.

Being a triple threat is just about all she can muster. “I love to write, direct and produce,” she says, “but I haven’t tried acting; I’d probably be terrible,” she laughs.
