Enjoy and more news later as Larry will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to finish up the film and make it as great as possible!
Here’s a message from Larry about the film:
ERIC AND SHAYE
A Feature-Length Documentary about Master Filmmaker
Eric Fournier and his SuperStarlet Shaye Saint John
By Larry Wessel
I want to thank All of the Fans on Eric and Shaye’s Facebook Fan Page (3,256 and Counting!) for your Enthusiastic Show of Support for ERIC AND SHAYE, my upcoming Feature-Length Documentary about Eric Fournier and his SuperStarlet Shaye Saint John!
I feel that Eric Fournier is an unsung hero of our contemporary cinema. Filmmaker, Video Artist and Founder of Absurdist Video Art, Eli Elliot has this to say in ERIC AND SHAYE, “If there is a publication, a book or an anthology about underground cinema of the past decade and it doesn’t include Shaye Saint John then it is clueless. Eric had a huge impact and he should be remembered as one of the most unique and important filmmakers in the age of the internet”. I am not only making a documentary about Eric and Shaye but I want to personally see to it that Eric Fournier’s films are preserved by an organization such as Anthology Film Archives in New York or the UCLA Film and Television Archives in Los Angeles. I highly regard Eric Fournier as a filmmaker and I feel that his legacy should be preserved for future generations to behold.
I have a very strong feeling that ERIC AND SHAYE will be The Best Film I have Ever Made! It is my promise That ERIC AND SHAYE will Shock, Surprise and Delight as it transcends rational thought. diving deeper and deeper into the inner recesses of the brilliant brain of Eric Fournier telling his story from his point of view, Shaye Saint John’s point of view and through the intimate personal details of his life as told by all of his closest friends, roommates and co-workers who were there from the very beginning to the tragic ending of Eric Fournier’s life.
ERIC AND SHAYE is a work in progress and the Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Will Launch on Wednesday, June 1st and Will Be Live until Thursday, June 30th, 2016. Lots of Tasty Treats are Planned for Kickstarter Supporters Including Advance Copies of the Eric and Shaye DVD. Mark Your Calendars!!
