The film, which was funded in part via Kickstarter, will feature insights from Smith’s close friends, family, and collaborators, including his sister and a number of producers and engineers he recorded music with.
Director Kevin Moyer says, “This project is a love letter to Elliott and his music. And it’s a love letter to Portland really too – as well as Texas, New York, and Los Angeles which are the other places that Elliott called home. And most importantly, it’s a love letter from a whole bunch of other great people who were close to Elliott and loved him just as much too; friends and confidants who graciously trusted us with such a sensitive subject and put their own vulnerabilities aside to help us explain to the world why we all loved him.”
