THIS IS THE NEWS YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!
Many of you will have heard of 'The People vs George Lucas', the feature documentary that aims to look into Star Wars fans feelings and perceptions of one of the most powerful producers in the industry, Mr G. Lucas. A mere mortal who once could do no wrong (ignoring Howard the Duck granted), has in recent years been mauled by many members of his once feverant fanbase, and yet equally there are those who are forever faithful, seemingly no matter how many 'special edition' revisioned boxsets are released. Neither in favour of Lucas, or directly against him 'The People vs George Lucas', asked why?
Well, we're extremely proud to announce that after 2 1/2 years of intense production, 63,686 frequent flier miles, 634 hours of footage, 14TB of drive space, 126 interviews, 719 fan submissions, and countless white nights, THE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS will finally world premiere, fresh off the editing press, at the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, Texas (March 12th to March 21st 2010)! And if that's not good enough for you, they included our film in their prestigious Spotlight Premiere section, alongside the latest releases from Steven Soderbergh, Michel Gondry, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Shane Meadows! We're truly humbled.
Interested? If so, go check out our new website. You'll see some changes there, including a brand-new navigation page, which will give you access to our new pre-release trailer.
Our brand-new official poster is also available for download under our Press Kit tab, where you'll also find a folder of stills and sketches from the film there. So please tell your friends, blog about us, mention us in forums, join us on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.
We hope to see many of you in Austin next month, of course. Be sure to check the SXSW website for updates on screenings, how to purchase tickets, etc. And if Austin's a little too far, far away for you, please be patient with us. Have movie. Will travel.
Thanks to all!! This movie, truly, is for you!
