Drew: Man Behind the Poster

Way back in August of 2010, we called your attention to a documentary called Drew: The Man Behind the Poster which is about the legendary Drew Struzan, the iconic poster artist we all know and love. Up-and-coming American filmmaker Erik Sharkey along with Greg Boas and Charles Ricciardi are the filmmaking team behind the promising documentary that features interviews with Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, and so many more. Now the film is close to completion, but the production has run out of money. But thankfully, we don't let all their hard work go to waste. More below.

Here's a new clip from Drew: The Man Behind the Poster with Michael J. Fox:

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. 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.” So this is where fans of Drew Struzan or people looking to support great cinema come into play. The filmmakers have set up a fundraising page for the film on IndieGoGo which you can check out right here. They need $8,000 in just 53 days, so any money you can send their way to get this film off the ground would be awesome. Do it!

How about they should hit up all the Hollywood stars and directors they interviewed? Just a thought.

Well I recently purchased a $65 artbook from Drew - Drew Struzan: Oeuvre. Maybe they can use that money towards the $8k lol

Only $8,000? Why can't they get a normal bankloan for that??

That's pocket change to someone in Hollywood. Surely Steven Spielberg would front up the completion money for this doco. Go ask him.

This has to be done. I mean what the fuck is going on if this can't get done?

A truly great film that should not be left in a vault somewhere! The public needs to see this, and the public needs to make it happen! Best of luck guys 🙂
