Who is Elliot "White Lightning" Scott? Well, that depends on who you ask. According to the man himself, he's Canada's next (first?) Jackie Chan, an action hero waiting in the wings, with multiple awards for his marital arts prowess. But Elliot isn't waiting around for other people to make things happen for him. He's an amateur filmmaker too, the writer/director/star of films such of low-budget wonders as "Stalker And The Hero" and "They Killed My Cat" that have a minor cult following due to how courageously awful they are. But his dreams are big, and Elliot thinks his next movie, "Blood Fight," could break him into the big time, especially with a potential distributor already waiting, one that will open a possible door to the offices of Warner Bros. (eventually). But that's what Elliot says. So who is he really? With their documentary "Elliot," directors Jaret Belliveau and Matthew Bauckman intend to find out.
