Drew Struzan Doc Panel Coming To NYCC

Posted By Mike on September 27, 2011

Per the following press release, the documentary about famed movie poster artist Drew Struzan will be coming to New York Comic Con, in panel form. We've added a listing for this panel to our NYCC Star Wars events post as well. Drew was responsible for a number of familiar Star Wars posters and last year's book, The Art of Drew Struzan was extremely entertaining. Hopefully this panel will be as well!



“DREW STRUZAN” DOCUMENTARY PANEL AT NYC COMIC CON!


To celebrate the forthcoming completion of “Drew: The Man Behind The Poster,” a portion of the documentary feature film, which examines the life, craft and iconic portfolio of film poster artist Drew Struzan, will screen at the New York Comic Con on October 15, 2011 at 9pm at the Jacob Javitz Center, Room 1A24. A discussion about the film, the artists, the artwork, and the ever-changing landscape of movie and entertainment advertising will follow the screening. In attendance will be Cinematographer/Supervising Editor, Greg Boas, Producer, Charles Ricciardi and Director, Erik P. Sharkey, as well as Steve Saffel, Titan Books Senior Acquisitions Editor for 'The Art of Drew Struzan' and 'Drew Struzan: Oeuvre' along with special guest, and participant in the “Drew” documentary, Carroll Spinney, Sesame Street’s legendary puppeteer and performer of the Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch characters. Other celebrity guests may also attend. Audience members will be given a limited edition Drew Struzan poster (while supplies last).


“Drew: The Man Behind The Poster” delves into some of Struzan’s most memorable works, including the “Back To The Future,” “Indiana Jones” & “Star Wars” film series, as well as “The Thing,” “Harry Potter,” “E.T.,” along with much of the original 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, Harrison Ford, Guillermo del Toro, Frank Darabont, 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.

The full feature, which is expected to be completed next month, will premiere at a film festival this coming year. No further details are available at this time.
