Posted last week on Bloody Disgusting and FearNET, this is an animatic pitch by story artist Federico D’Alessandro (Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor 2).
“As a lifelong HALLOWEEN fan it would be a dream to direct a reboot of the franchise that’s so near and dear to my heart. I created this animatic to show the tone and storytelling that I would bring to the project if I were lucky enough to have that chance. If you like it, please repost…if this gets enough hits, who knows, maybe I’ll get that opportunity!”
Then check out his short film, Recollection, which won which won Best Horror Short at the 2011 Comic Con. The multi-award winning short horror film, is the story of a man who awakens in a freshly dug grave with no memories of who he is or how he got there. Lost, injured and afraid, he finds himself in a fight for survival as he struggles through a macabre lair while desperately trying to escape from a man intent on killing him.

Drew: The Man Behind The Poster” is a feature-length documentary film highlighting the career of poster artist Drew Struzan, whose most popular works include the “Indiana Jones,” “Back to the Future” and “Star Wars” movie posters. Telling the tale through exclusive interviews with George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg and many other filmmakers, artists and critics, the journey spans Drew’s early career in commercial and album cover art through his recent retirement as one of the most recognizable and influential movie poster artists of all time.
However, the producers ran out of money in the final stages. Says director Erik P. Sharkey: “We are currently in the final stages of our sound mix. So the film has already been shot and edited. But we have totally run out of money. That is where you come in. Your generous donation would help us finish Post Production, take care of legal fees as well as promotion for the film. We are so close to the finish line but need your help. Please help us finish a film that honors an amazing artist Drew Struzan!”
