About 2.5 years ago, I reviewed the book “Confessions of a Beatlemaniac!” A true story of a fan who broke all the rules to MEET THE BEATLES!“ by Dee Elias after meeting her at the Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans. And about a year later, I posted that Dee was having a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a short film based on her book.
For those of us that were lucky enough to get in on the ground floor by contributing to her highly successful campaign, and requested a copy of the DVD as our reward, we got the goods about 2 weeks ago. I couldn’t wait to pop this movie into my DVD player!
This 20 minute short starts with an animated title page that is just too cute. Hint: It’s a play on the book cover. Then the fun starts, as Dee and her friends reminisce about the fab time that had trying to meet the Beatles when they were just young innocent girls. Flash backs will take you back to 60’s with Dee and company sneaking and conniving their way to actually get up close and personal with the Fab Four. This movie is delightful…
But Dee’s adventures didn’t end in the 60’s. Dee and her movie crew have decided to enter this movie as a Short Film in several movie festivals this year. For the rest of her adoring fans, it’s scheduled to be released to the public in 2017!
For those that haven’t read her delightful true story of meeting the Beatles, you can purchase her book on her website or on Amazon. It’ll help pass the time while we all wait for the movie to be released to the public!
Good luck at the film festivals, Dee!
