Mexico: Up Next! Elisa Miller Preps Bakery Tale

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.

    'Alien' at 40: Ridley Scott Explains Why 'You Don't Show the Monster Too Many Times'

    It’s difficult to imagine Ridley Scott’s sci-fi/horror classic “Alien” without the clear-minded, strong presence of Tom Skerritt as Dallas, the captain of the ill-fated Nostromo. But originally, the actor turned down “Alien,” which celebrates its 40th anniversary on May 25, though he thought Dan O’Bannon’s script read well. “There was nobody involved at the time [...]

    Film Review: 'The Poison Rose'

    It is 1978 in the City of Angels and the hard-drinking washed-up sleuth Carson Phillips is having another boozy day through its atmospheric streets. There is a hint of innate coolness and self-deprecation in his elongated voiceover intro — you might even briefly mistake Carson, played by a one-note John Travolta, for a Philip Marlowe [...]
