"Everyone who loves rock & roll! Please help us finish our movie on Patty Schemel by making a donation & spreading the word!" a message on the site, dated Feb. 4, says.
"I'm very aware I have been interviewed for a documentary on my dear friend Patty Schemel and f---ing it's fine, you use what you like, thank you and good night," says Courtney Love in a video posted on the site to drum up support for the project.
Schemel, now 43, apparently approached co-producer Christina Soletti back in 2007 with roughly 40 hours of footage that was shot when she was in Hole in the '90s. The footage was on videotape but Schemel was worried the tapes, being Hi8 quality, would soon disintegrate.
"So Patty brings me 40 hours of Hi8 tape -- never before seen stuff -- and we start watching it together and it's fascinating," Ebersole says in the same video that features Love.
Interviews with Schemel, her family, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Eric Erlandson, Love, Veruca Salt's Nina Gordon and Luscious Jackson drummer Kate Schellenbach are also included in the short video. A trailer with the tag line "The story of a girl who fell into a hole...." follows, featuring more clips of Love and Auf Der Maur, and some of Kurt Cobain.
There's no word on when the documentary will be officially released.
Schemel joined Hole in 1992 and played on 1994's 'Live Through This' but left the band during the sessions for 'Celebrity Skin' before the album was completed. Reasons for the departure were disputed by both sides. The drummer has since worked with Juliette Lewis and performed on Love's solo album 'America's Sweetheart.'
