Kickstarters,

The date is finally locked and confirmed for the release of "The Death of "Superman Lives"; What Happened?" and it is May 1st, 2015!

Thanks you all for your patience in the process of making this intense feature film documentary. I am still working on it, and will be for February and March, as we lock picture, finish effects, complete the editing, and finalize the audio and music mix.

I will be releasing a commercial with all the information in the following week, so look for that as well.

Kickstarters,

Just finished two incredible interviews for the doc!

First up is SPFX wizard Bill Bryan! You practical peeps will know him for creating plastic bag liquid explodo bags and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man among some of his work. But did you know that he worked under Steve Johnson at Edge FX on "Superman Lives"? Well he tells us what he did!

Then we landed one of the top interviews so far, Writer/Director of the amazing film "Nightcrawler", and the 3rd Screenwriter of "Superman Lives", Dan Gilroy!!! Dan was so incredibly articulate and gave us one heck of an incredible interview!!!
