Documentary Directors Drive For The King

WILLS POINT, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death approaching, one group of documentary filmmakers are out to drive home the significance of The King.

Honk If You Heart Elvis is a cross-country road trip capturing Elvis eccentrics that began this past Saturday (Aug. 4), in Los Angeles and ends in Memphis, Tennessee, on Sunday (Aug. 12) and will eventually be made into a documentary film.

And while the trip has filmed its fair share of eye-opening fan interviews, director Helen Harlan and crew member Erica Easley say nothing – not even the backstage antics of Elvis impersonators – is strange enough to get them “all shook up.”

Harlan says, “The whole nature of Elvis impersonators is ridiculous, but to us it’s sincere and real.”

And when they pack up the cameras and hit the road, the Elvis tunes are never far behind.

Easley says, “We have our Elvis albums we pop in every few hours to keep the crew in line.”
