About

Lost Boy: The Bobby Driscoll Story is a documentary on the former child actor who fell from young stardom to an early, tragic grave. He is most well known for being a child film actor for Disney in the 1940s and 50s with films such as Treasure Island, When I Grow Up, and Song of The South. This was all build up to what will go down as Bobby Driscoll's most memorable role of Peter Pan. The film has gone down as a legendary and undeniable classic to many children and adults alike, but Bobby's career didn't last. Bobby went down a slippery slope of drugs that brought him all the way to the gutter. Bobby was later found dead in New York City in 1968 at the age of 31.

What we are trying to do is tell the story of Bobby's entire life and find the pieces that brought him to his tragic end. We will be interviewing many people involved in Bobby's life such as Kathryn Beaumont (voice of Wendy in Peter Pan), Billy Name (one of Andy Warhol's best friends), and other child stars, past and present. This film is only possible with your help. We need cameras, lighting, audio and video accessories to go along with the travel fare to take us to all these unique people who had a part in his life. So, in summation, we need all the help we can get in order to tell his incredible story as it deserves to be told.

Risks and challenges

Our Biggest challenges come in the form of the people we need to interview. Many of these people are in their later years and are losing memories of that time. It is also going to be a challenge to find these people because they are scattered all over the country. Places like Los Angeles, New York, Iowa, Pittsburgh and Minnesota . These are only the places we know now we have to visit.

However like any film there will be many challenges unknown to us at this time. That we will be prepared to deal with when they come along.
