Indie Trailer Sunday: Very Early Promo Clip for 'Jodorowsky's Dune'
"For me [it] was not to make a picture, [but] something deeper, something sacred, something free, with new perspective." Okay, so this isn't necessarily a trailer, but it's essentially a trailer and is worth watching anyway. Following the news earlier in the week that a documentary called Jodorowsky's Dune, about the filmmaker's attempt to adapt the sci-fi novel, was officially in the works, Twitch has posted a promo clip featuring Alejandro Jodorowsky talking about it and it's pretty awesome to see. I just love the way this builds with him speaking and the way it ends. Now I'm even more excited to see the doc. Check it out below!
Watch the first early promo trailer for Jodorowsky's Dune:
Covers cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky and his 1974 attempt to create a big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel, Dune. While the ambitious production collapsed after two years, Jodorowsky's team of then relatively unknown concept artists continued exploring the themes and styles started on the project and ended up changing modern science fiction forever. Directing is Frank Pavich, of the 1999 music doc N.Y.H.C. Pavich has already completed interviews with Jodorowsky and the other members of the original team, filming in France, Switzerland and the UK, and is headed to the US next. Developed by Snowfort Pictures, France's Camera One, and Koch Media. Release is expected in 2012.
