New York Comic Con 2011
Honorary Academy Award recipient Roger Corman, who I believe has produced more movies than I’ve seen in my entire life, will make a rare personal appearance on Saturday, October 15th, at the Anchor Bay Entertainment Booth at the 2011 New York Comic Con in support of the new documentary Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel.
Honestly, we can’t even begin to list the projects Corman has worked on or the careers he’s launched. It’s safe to say the man is as iconic as it comes in the world of filmmaking, especially the low-budget variety. And this is your chance to meet him face to face. Whether you’re a fan of his early work, or Sharktopus is more your speed, don’t miss this opportunity to meet a legend of our favorite genre. Read on for the details.
