IMTA Alum Elijah Wood in Rodarte's fantasy film!

IMTA Alum Elijah Wood stars in the 12 minute epic film "This Must Be The Only Fantasy." The film is the third with director Todd Cole.  Instead of a traditional ad campaign, the sisters behind the New York label Rodarte have created a 12 minute cinematic feature. (If you want to see Elijah's part, start at the 9 minute mark).

From The Telegraph, Fashion UK,"Using the spring/summer 2013 collection's medieval and fantasy game playing inspirations as the basis, 'This Must Be The Only Fantasy' begins with a friendly teenage gathering but quickly evolves into a mystical journey complete with a nefarious cloaked horseman, young hooligans who are not who they appear to be and a white unicorn."

Elijah first showed his star potential at IMTA in 1989 when he caught the eye of the famed superagent Al Onorato.  Elijah has starred in over 40 feature films in his career and is one of Hollywood's (and IMTA's!) most-loved actors!

IMTA INSIDER SCOOP: We'll never forget Elijah's performance during the Talent Showcase when he forgot a few of the words to the song he was singing, 'Don't Worry Be Happy.'  He did an impromptu duet with our emcee Russ Fega that had the whole crowd rooting for him. The entire Talent Showcase audience was charmed by his ability to recover. Elijah's song got a huge round of applause!
