Feature documentary Dave Stevens: Drawn to Perfection—with an original score composed and produced by Paul Terry—is out now on digital and on demand from Samuel Goldwyn Films. Also, the complete soundtrack is out now on all streaming platforms.
The authorized feature documentary is about the life and art of Dave Stevens, the creator of The Rocketeer who also reintroduced the world to 1950's pin-up model Bettie Page. Stevens' comic book series The Rocketeer was adapted into the beloved feature film starring Billy Campbell and Jennifer Connelly. Working with luminaries like Joe Johnston, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Jack Kirby, Stevens was widely considered one of the best illustrators of his generation.
The film is directed/produced by Kelvin Mao (10 Minutes Gone), produced/edited by Rob Chatlin (The Water of Life), executive produced by Robert Windom (Stars Fell on Alabama), and associated produced by Stevens' sister Jennifer Bawcum. The 99-minute film was shot over two years, with 35 interviews, over 80 hours of footage, and thousands of photos and artworks scanned. Its 2022 release celebrates the 40th anniversary of the comic-book debut of The Rocketeer.
