Clive Barker Documentary Director Speaks!
A few weeks back we reported that there was a documentary in the works revolving around the world of Clive Barker. Well today director Thom Hutson (The Id, Crystal Lake Memories) officially announced the project in a interview conducted by the site Horror Geek Life.
HorrorGeekLife – It was a great scene and it was a fun little Easter egg for fans. Lastly, are there any upcoming projects you’d like us to know about?
Thommy Hutson – I’m excited to be working on a documentary about Clive Barker. I’m partnering up with Clive’s company to produce, direct and write. It’s exciting because it’s not going to be like all the other documentaries in a sense that it’s a movie by movie, scene by scene breakdown of how they made it. This is going to be more about Clive Barker as a person, Clive Barker as a creator, Clive Barker as an artist and just really looking at how someone of his artistic caliber and creativity functions and brings things into the world. Why we love those things so much and why the things that he’s created have clearly become iconic. That’s going to be a really fun project to work on.
Sounds like the film is in good hands. To be able to get a small glimpse and to live inside Clive’s head for a couple of hours, I’m sure is going to be something very special for his fans.
We’ll keep you posted as more news comes in.
