"Garden Party" is a drama film directed by Jason Freeland and starring Vinessa Shaw and Willa Holland. "Garden Party" was filmed in Los Angeles, California. The film was released on July 11, 2008 in the United States.


If you live in Los Angeles long enough, you either become completely jaded or you learn to love the delightful lack of moral judgment that is as pervasive as the bright sunshine. Garden Party is the quintessential LA movie about three kids searching for their dreams in the city where there is always someone younger, sexier, and more willing.

Garden Party Stories

One night during the filming of "Garden Party", actor/musician Erik Scott Smith ("Sammy") was hanging out, waiting for someone to light something. And to pass the time, he got to talking about some of the crazy things he has seen people do since he moved to LA from Tennessee. And Erik, who is a street musician, has seen quite a bit.

Alex Cendese, who plays "Nathan", was there as well, and after hearing one of Erik’s stories, he said that’s just what attracted him to the script of GARDEN PARTY. Erik said, yeah, these are all "garden party stories". If you’ve lived in LA for long, you have one of your own.And so, a “garden party story”, as they became known that night, is a story about the most awkward, or outrageous, or humbling moment that someone experiences in an effort to get ahead or just get by, while waiting for fame and fortune in LA. And the filmmakers began to collect "garden party stories" from various people. One actress was paid $500 to clean an apartment in her panties. One actor responded to a personal assistant ad, which led to nothing but trouble. Another actress ratted her boyfriend’s other girlfriend out to the tabloids. And so the stories go. At the bottom of these, and many others, is both the desperation of trying to get ahead in Hollywood and the humor that goes with it.


The filmmakers began to post the Garden Party Stories on the internet, to publicize the film. It gained more publicity as it was mentioned by some popular YouTube users videos. These videos included some by [ communitychannel] [] , [ mememolly] [] and [ Paperlilies] . The videos had gained money for the users and had gained them a trip to LA for the premiere, which Paperlilies revealed in a video called "Dont watch that film" Fact|date=July 2008. In this, she said that she had been asked in an email with one of the producers to give the videos a "racy title to get the pervs to drive up the views."
