Mali Elfman on Do Not Disturb: Fantasy Film Podcast

Mint on the Pillow, Imminent Confrontation with the Unknown in the Suitcase: Eric Balfour gets his glow on in DO NOT DISTURB.
Mint on the Pillow, Imminent Confrontation with the Unknown in the Suitcase: Eric Balfour gets his glow on in DO NOT DISTURB.

Shot on the proverbial shoestring over seven quick production days, DO NOT DISTURB is a curious little anthology film with some interesting names attached. Mali Elfman — daughter of Danny — wrote and produced, as well as starring in a couple of segments; Eric Balfour (SKYLINE) directs one segment and stars in another. Other helmers include music video director Petro Papahadjopoulos and Brandon Nicholas; and daddy Danny chipped in a theme song, with other soundtrack contributions coming from Incubus’ Mike Eizinger and Thenewno2′s Oliver Hecks. The stories, all set in one hotel room, run the gamut from a conventional drama featuring some teen classmates on a school trip, to an alien encounter, to a prostitute contending with a client with esoteric tastes in role-play, to a twist on the ol’ involuntary organ-donor urban myth. Turns out some hotel rooms need a UV sweep; some just deserve to be walled-up and forgotten about.
