Documentary I Worked on Having a Screening

Post by the89thchris on Sun Feb 12, 2017 10:25 pm

Last year I worked on a documentary that got me to several comic conventions across the country.

It's mainly about Canadian comic book artists from starting out all the way to working for Marvel or DC. A couple embrace their Canadian heitige more blatantly, and that has its own unique challenges. It also focuses on how small studios use conventions for sales and marketing.

I haven't seen a finished cut but I shot about 80% of it. If a certain Neil Adams interview makes the cut, that alone is worth the price of admission lol.

Trailer 1


Trailer 2


For some reason there is a screening on Valentine's Day lol at GeekFest in Toronto. It's gonna be a long day but I'll be there. It should be available on demand shortly.

Thought it might be interesting for anyone who collects Marvel or DC, Ty Templeton features heavily and he designed the poster you can see on the IMDb page.

The trailers look great Chris! Definitely something I'd watch. I went to NYCC last year and basically spent the entire time in Artist Alley.

Let me know when it's done and I'll share it in some of the FB comic groups I'm in.

Just noticed that it's up on Amazon Prime :[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Can't say I'm completely happy with the edit, but the Neal Adam's interview is pretty great. It's kinda cool to see something I shot on there though (lol we'll, I shot the nicer looking 70% of it anyway rofl )
