Viktor Devonne presents: PASSION PROJECT, a series devoted to artists and creators behind really neat stuff. The premiere episode is WHO DONE IT? THE CLUE DOCUMENTARY, with the director/editor/guide Jeff C. Smith, who began his journey in 2017. The final product is a full length documentary now in select theaters, and on its way to VOD. With behind-the-scenes gab from the folks behind the cult classic Clue (Jonathan Lynn! Lesley Ann Warren! Michael McKean!) including extensive conversations on the almost-was (Carrie Fisher as Miss Scarlet? That elusive 4th ending?), loving tribute to the energy of the people who made it happen (the costumes! the sets! the script!), and grateful acknowledgement of the fans who keep the mayhem going, this is the thus-only definitive documentation of the history of the quinessential board game murder mystery comedy. Jeff talks about how the idea formulated, how he got in contact with comedy legends to be on camera, who declined and how nicely, and the road to the movie screen, where it recently showed on both coasts and is now emerging all over. "It’s not just a movie based on a board game …anymore."
