Austin, Tex. – A documentary about a live-action comic book is landing students from The Art Institute of Austin behind the scenes at Conan this week. While Conan O’Brien does his thing on stage with two actors from The Intergalactic Nemesis, three students from The Art Institute of Austin, a branch of The Art Institute of Houston, will be shooting part of a documentary about the comic book behind the scenes of the TBS Network show airing on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 9 p.m. CST.
What started as a small project for Eric Stewart, who’s working toward his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation, and Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production students Anton Curley and Cassie Klepac, has now grown into a full length documentary with a storyline telling the history, current status and possible future of The Intergalactic Nemesis, which originated in Austin and is currently touring the country. The students have raised $5000 to pay for equipment and travel costs associated with shooting the documentary.
The students expect to travel approximately 6000 miles to capture all the necessary footage for their film. They hope to finish shooting by the end of April and plan to complete editing by the fall so they can submit their finished product to SXSW 2013, Fantastic Fest 2013, Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival.
