Veteran Horror Producer launches Oscar Campaign for GAHAN WILSON Doc


Veteran producer Steven-Charles Jaffe,  the man behind such FANGORIA-approved classics as MOTEL HELL, DEMON SEED and NEAR DARK and the romantic sci-fi/fantasy gems TIME AFTER TIME, GHOST and STRANGE DAYS recently turned his energy towards the life and times of legendary macabre socio-political cartoonist and illustrator Gahan Wilson with his already award-winning doc BORN DEAD, STILL WEIRD.

And though the film has screened to great acclaim at festivals around the world, it is unfortunately still somewhat invisible. Jaffe is hoping to change that and he needs your help.

The filmmaker’s hope is to get GAHAN WILSON: BORN DEAD, STILL WEIRD recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – aka The Oscars –  for nomination consideration as Best Documentary. To do this, Jaffe needs to raise $26,000 by September 16th. A longshot? Jaffe  is adamant that this loveletter to the inimitable Wilson gets the love it deserves and he’s hoping the artist’s legion of fans around the world feel the same.

Visit www.borndeadstillweird.com to learn more about the hilarious, moving and fascinating film, how you can pledge, the incredible rewards you can receive for being part of this campaign and more. And keep an eye out for an upcoming feature article and interview with Jaffe in FANGORIA where he discusses his thirty-year career producing, directing and writing genre film classics.
