Palo Alto - Another Coppola Family Filmmaking Success As Director's Mum Captures Stars Relaxing

Another member of the Coppola filmmaking dynasty has directed her first movie after capturing candid moments off-set while hosting the stars of her daughter Gia's new film Palo Alto in her home.

Jacqui Getty pieced together a 30-minute 'making of' documentary in between cooking meals for and styling stars like James Franco and Emma Roberts.

Her daughter, Gia Coppola, who is movie mogul Francis Ford Coppola's granddaughter, had such a small budget for the adaptation of Franco's short stories, she asked her mother to open up her home for the cast and crew.

Getty tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We didn't have money for a casting director or housing, so I cooked the kids dinner every night."

She admits Apocalypse Now director Francis Ford Coppola is quite impressed with her filmmaking skills: "Francis was shocked at how I worked the camera."

Getty tells the publication she had a lot of help from her most famous relative's wife, Eleanor, who directed the 1991 documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse while her husband was shooting Apocalypse Now.
