Full Trailer - Jan.15th 2014


Hello everyone!!! As we close out 2013, I just want to thank you all and give you some updates on the progress of "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?" Documentary. I'm very excited to be in Full Production, and heading into Post-Production in February and March.

I've just completed two more interviews with Artists Tim Burgard and Rolf Mohr, who both worked on designs for the now legendary "Giant Spider" sequence from the project. They were great and insightful interviews, and I'm looking forward to putting them into the film. I'm still shooting many more interviews, with several more scheduled for January and February.

I know many of you have been asking me about the film, and when is it going to be finished  so you can see it. I'm aiming on having it out and available in the summer of 2014.

I'm pleased to announce that the official Full length Trailer for "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?"

      Aw fake out! I glance at my KS Activity thing, and see "Update #24 - Full Trailer" and I'm pumped to see it! Then I get to the update, read the REST of the words in the Update title, and get a little bummed :) That's cool though; it's a busy time anyway what with Christmas. Glad I'll have something to look forward to immediately when 2014 rolls around.

      Looking forward to it!

      I was bummed to see that this update did not include the trailer already (did not pay full attention to the title, so it is my mistake). But nice to see work is still on-going and that there is a premier for the trailer already.
