POP CULTURE FOCUSED FILMMAKERS TEAM UP TO BRING FANS
POWER OF GRAYSKULL: THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF
HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
(LONDON, ON, CANADA, September 2015) Southwestern Ontario filmmakers join forces to document the past, present and future of iconic toy, cartoon, and comic line, Masters of the Universe.
Randall Lobb, writer/director/producer of Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Rob McCallum, writer/director of Nintendo Quest: The Most Unofficial and Unauthorized Nintendo Documentary Ever! once again put their pop culture fandom on film with a deep dive into the history of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
Power of Grayskull, the latest in FauxPop Media’s Definitive Film series, will dig into the rich history of what has become one of the most beloved and enduring pop culture icons for millions of fans worldwide.
From concept to comic book, cartoons, movies and beyond, the enormous popularity of Masters of the Universe has spawned legions of loyal fans who’ve turned the cosmically-powered barbarian into an industry. Decades after its creation, MOTU is still going strong – a franchise rich in collectibles, conferences and, more importantly, universal themes that still resonate with audiences after all these years.
By talking to industry insiders, artists, writers, voice actors and the fans themselves, the filmmakers will uncover the truth behind the Power of Grayskull, revealing the rich meaning in a childhood hero whose appeal is much more than simple nostalgia.
In association with Pyre Productions USA L.L.C., FauxPop Media hopes to launch a Kickstarter campaign in early 2016 to galvanize support, involve the community, and raise funds for what promises to be a demanding production. Possible rewards for support may include:
• Production cells from the animated series
• Signed prints and memorabilia from key creators
• Single and multi-disc signed collector sets
• Supporter credits in the documentary
