As many of you know, Ignatz-award winning cartoonist Jeffrey Brown illustrated the movie poster for Rabbit Fever. Since I live in California and he lives in Chicago, we basically communicated back and forth through e-mail regarding the look and feel of the design and he even watched footage of the film over the Internet. While I usually enjoy meeting face-to-face with people that I collaborate with, you’d be surprised with how much work I was able to accomplish with the rest of my crew and cast members this way. It’s really amazing how much of the filmmaking process can take place online!
At any rate, I still wanted to meet Jeff, not only to thank him in person for the wonderful work that he did on the poster, but also because I’m a big fan of his autobiographical graphic novels. Luckily, I was able to meet Jeff last January when he flew in from Chicago to make an appearance at Indy Euphoria, a toy & comic convention located in Sacramento, CA. Not only is Jeff a swell guy, but he also agreed to sit down for a video interview about the making of the Rabbit Fever poster!
Win a Jeffrey Brown Comic Book & Official Rabbit Fever Poster!
It’s so easy, just TWEET!
Jeff released a new mini comic book entitled “Process” that’s about…well…the PROCESS of drawing and writing his comic books. I picked up one for myself at the Sacramento convention and it’s GREAT – full of behind-the-scenes insight and self-deprecating humor. But, the REALLY cool thing about this comic book is that it comes with original artwork – scraps that never made it to the final stages and pages ripped right out of Jeff’s sketchbooks! Right now, it’s only available to purchase at comic conventions and book signings wherever Jeff appears, however, one lucky reader can WIN a copy of “Process” along with a Rabbit Fever poster by sharing the link to the YouTube video of Jeff’s interview on Twitter! To be eligible, please include the hashtag: #RabbitFever in your tweet so that we can find you. Alternatively, if you’re only interested in winning the movie poster alone, share the link to the official Rabbit Fever movie trailer. The winners will be announced by Monday, March 29th, 2010 on Rabbit Fever’s Facebook Fan Page and Twitter (@RabbitFever) page.
