Since 2001, Rich Henn (creator of Timespell) has been working on a documentary about creative forces in independent and self-publishing. Henn wanted to capture the overall theme of what goes on behind the scenes of the comic book industry. In over 45 hours of footage, some of the finest interviews and one-of-a-kind moments have been captured on film.
The resulting first film (there will possibly be a series of documentaries from the project) is called "SCENES FROM THE SMALL PRESS: MAINSTREAM RAW." About 2 hours long it includes uncut, uncensored material from the likes of Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Joe Quesada, Matt Wagner, Evan Dorkin, Dave Sim, Colleen Doran and many more. A 15 minute preview of the film is available for download here.
UPDATE: The final finished film is available for purchase here.
