Addicted To Fame is an upcoming documentary film that revolves around the story of a filmmaker’s journey to the seductive glare of the media spotlight which leads him moral blindness. David Giancola had a vision to break tradition and he did this by making a movie that mocked B-movies. He thought that he could change the way the media thought by casting Anna Nicole Smith. By the end of this endeavour the places seemed to have switched, being that David was the one manipulated by the media along with his star in the film and one of his Producers. It seemed that this story generally gave everyone something to talk about. It also happens to be Anna Nicole Smith’s last project before she passed away. Let’s take a look at an early news on the documentary Addicted To Fame
“Early News for The Documentary Addicted To Fame
As I talk with David Giancola of Edgewood Studios, his Hollywood sense of promotion surfaces as he frequently inserts the title of his soon-to-be-released documentary,Addicted To Fame, into our conversation. The film shows the behind the scenes of his film Illegal Aliens, executive produced by the actor John James, starring Anna Nicole Smith, and Joanie Chyna Laurer. Giancola’s voice is immediately welcoming, open, and down-to-earth. Along with the fire of a still-in-the-game filmmaker, I hear the laid-back dad who calmly greets his eleven-year old daughter when she returns home, and who has to pause to take a call from his hockey-playing son. I can overhear Dad, sounding more like a house-husband than a busy filmmaker, ask if pizza’s okay for supper. David Giancola, film director, father and husband, seems to have it all, including: a career where names like “Deniro” and “Norman Lear” have shared dinners along with insights and anecdotes with him, a wife (who loathes the film business but understands her husband’s need for it), two children, one athletic and one creative, and two dogs. One is a black lab, the other a golden retriever. David Giancola’s life is, in fact, a study in dichotomies, one that has led him on a unique path to discovery his new documentary Addicted To Fame in a highly unusual way.
Comfortable with Hollywood glitz, Giancola lives almost as far in mileage and in sensibility as one can be from L.A. Even this mid-November release, Addicted To Fame, is the opposite of what the project started out to be. The film he set out to make and that is now on hold, Illegal Aliens, is a fun take-off on the Charlie’s Angels genre. Addicted To Fame– revealing, among other things, Anna Nicole Smith’s behavior just prior to her death — ultimately shows something more serious and reveals a much darker side of humanity.
Addicted To Fame was shot with a full time three-man camera crew, initially put in place to “cover our asses” as Giancola tells it. With the erratic behavior of Anna Nicole Smith resulting in havoc behind the scenes, everyone signed off on the idea of the possibility of getting a reality show out of the footage, in case Illegal Aliens never reached completion. Even Smith, whose television show in 2005 originated the reality show concept, agreed to it.”
