The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Teaser, for EVERYONE!!!

8 comments

All right, Backers, Patrons, Kickstarters, and EVERYONE ELSE, here it is, finally, the Teaser Trailer to my Documentary, "The Death of Superman Lives: what Happened?"!!!

I had a version I could have premiered at SDCC, but I wanted to get a few more interviews in the can, and get more grounded as I moved forward with the Doc. I've got several incredible announcements to be made, but I'm holding off on all of them, as I want to make them AFTER they happen, not before. I'm used to making narrative film, be it live or animated, from a script, and once I start, I'm rocketing toward the finish line.

Well, with Documentary Films, it's all in the planning, and the waiting, and lining up other peoples schedules, so I'm learning to take a deep breath, and wait. While I'm waiting though, I've been able to turn that to my advantage, and work on some other parts/sections of this feature that perhaps were less realistic beforehand. :)

The Feature won't be finished until mid 2014, I think I was too enthusiastic and hoped I could get all the interviews in too short of a timetable. So I'm staying the longer course, in what will ultimately benefit you, and the documentary overall.

I'll have a booth and be doing a "Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?"Panel at Comikaze this coming Nov. 1st ,2nd , and 3rd at the LA Convention Center. I will be selling some merch associated with my Documentary, with several Comikaze Exclusives!!!

So, without any further waiting, here is the Teaser Trailer!!!

      Grant Morrison! But we have to wait until Mid-2014???NOOOOOOO!!! Man I'm so hyped to watch this doc...I've been telling everyone about it. I understand scheduling is very difficult, but hopefully there's a chance it will be finished earlier.

      Yes, I want to see the documentation, but also yes (YES), I can wait as well. Good things take their time - so no worry. Nonetheless - thx for the update(s) nonetheless. Keep going...

      The movie will take longer, but if its better that's okay. As Shigeru Miyamoto said with the delay of The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time on the N64 " People will forget that a game (movie in this case) was late, but they 'll never forget that it was bad" Take all the time you need to make this the best fan doc ever.

      What a cheerfully odd trailer! I loved it! I'm excited for this movie. I hope people don't sweat the lengthy time table. This film is as close as we're going to get to see... what might have been. Good luck the rest of the way Jonathan.
