Photo Spotlight: Producers of New Elvis Short Film Visit Graceland

April 12, 2013

A Columbia College film student and a Chicago screenwriter are bringing their love for the king to the big screen in June, with a new short film titled "Nobody." Check out their visit to Graceland in this week's photo spotlight!

'Nobody' is a Sideburned Cinema short film, currently in production, which centers around Elvis during his senior year at Humes High. Writer, producer and director William Bryan and producer Tom Radovich both stopped by Graceland this week to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis' first performance at Humes High School in 1953. The film-making duo even sat-in as guest DJs on SiriusXM's Elvis Radio.

Elvis once stated: “I wasn’t popular in school. I wasn’t dating anybody and then they entered me in this talent show, and I came out and did my first number, ‘Till I Waltz Again With You’ by Teresa Brewer. It was amazing how popular I was after that.”

The new film project cinematically tells the story of the tender relationship between an 18-year-old Elvis and his mother, a devoted high school teacher and the 1953 Humes High School talent show that changed everything.
