Gary Baseman -- ‘Mythical Creatures’ Documentary on Kickstarter
The Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the completion of Gary Baseman’s ‘Mythical Creatures’ documentary is in the home stretch seeking a $100,000 stretch goal before ending on Monday (8.18). The film relates and personalizes the tragic lessons of the Holocaust through his parents’ personal harrowing experiences and heroic struggle against the Nazis in part with allegorical animation featuring Baseman’s characters and creatures. The money raised will help fund a filmed visit to the hometown of Baseman’s parents (Modern-day Ukraine) which will see the creation of an art installation as well as post-production for the documentary.
There are plenty of tempting rewards for project backers including a signed Gary Baseman x Shepard Fairey Partisan print, several T-shirts, movie poster and perhaps of most interest to toy collectors, a 12” limited-edition Toby Doll ($150). This new Toby plush is a follow-up to the long since sold-out larger 16” version (2005). Head on over to the ‘Mythical Creatures’ Kickstarter to learn more about the film and all of the available rewards.
