Drew Struzan Doc Looking For Funding

Posted By Mike on May 2, 2012

Erik Sharkey's documentary about famous movie poster artist Drew Struzan has been in the works for a couple years now and is finally in the closing stages of production. However, as with many ambitious projects, funds have become an issue. If you're a fan of Drew Struzan, or if your a fan of documentary film making, then you might want to check out the following press release to see how you can help bring Erik's documentary vision to completion.



“DREW: THE MAN BEHIND THE POSTER” …SO CLOSE…

With post production wrapping up, the director of “Drew: The Man Behind The Poster;” a new documentary feature film about movie poster artist Drew Struzan, explains how the film is so close, yet so far, from completion. As is often the case, the reason is money.

Director Erik P. Sharkey, has created his first crowd-sourcing fundraising effort to help offset anticipated costs and bring the film to the finish line. Sharkey explains, “On top of costs for technical services, other expenses, like legal fees, are going to be high. And the simple truth is we are out of money.” It was nearly three years ago when Sharkey and his film partners began production on their feature documentary, now in the final stages of post-production.

“We get so many emails from fans asking about the premiere, and we tell people we’re just as anxious as they are. But we are very, very close.” continues Sharkey.

Information about contributing to the film can be found on the popular Indigogo fundraising website: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/91958

Meanwhile, with picture locked, Christian Struzan and his team at XL Brand Media have delivered dazzling graphic work and pristine color correction to match up with a top notch sound mix, delivered by Zach Martin at Lucasfilm’s Skywalker Ranch. Editor Jeff Yorkes is also hard at work cutting a brand new trailer to be unveiled just prior to Comic Con San Diego.

Fans can view a preview clip from the film, featuring an exclusive interview with Michael J. Fox, on the film’s official website: www.drewthemovie.com

“Drew: The Man Behind The Poster” concerns Drew Struzan’s life, craft and iconic portfolio, which include, among many others, the “Back To The Future,” “Indiana Jones” & “Star Wars” film series, as well as “The Thing,” “Harry Potter,” “E.T.,” along with artwork for the early “Muppet” films. Stories are told via an impressive lineup of Hollywood talents, including exclusive interviews with, among many others, George Lucas, Guillermo del Toro, Frank Darabont, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Alice Cooper, Michael Uslan, Thomas Jane, Sam Witwer, Bob Gale, Leonard Maltin, Carroll Spinney, Greg Hildebrant, Steven Spielberg and, of course, Drew Struzan.




Don't forget that if you enjoy the works of Drew Struzan, there are a couple of fantastic books out there from Titan that feature his process, thoughts and lots of artwork.
