An Elvis Presley Double Whammy

Chances are you've never seen an Elvis Presley impersonator quite like Danny Frasier.

Despite being born with fetal syndrome and having his deformed legs amputated at the age of three, Frasier is today an energetic Presley tribute artist. He is also, as such, the subject of Carey Rayburn's short documentary Walk a Mile, set to hit the festival circuit in a few months.

This is actually one of two current Presley-focused projects for Rayburn, who works under the banner Outlaw Film Productions. Over the past ten years, he also put together the feature-length documentary 816, all about the day Presley died (August 16th, 1977).

Rayburn interviewed 500+ Elvis fans for that one and is hoping to debut the film at this summer's Sidewalk Film Festival, which runs August 23rd-25th in Birmingham, Alabama. Shake, rattle and roll the digital film!

Both Rayburn and Frasier are based in "The Yellowhammer State."
