LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Writer/director Steven-Charles Jaffe’s extraordinary film GAHAN WILSON: BORN DEAD, STILL WEIRD was honored as BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM at the 2011 Comic-Con International Film Festival this past Sunday in San Diego. Jaffe, whose previous producing credits include Ghost (executive producer), Strange Days and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, wrote and directed this truly ground breaking documentation of infamous cartoonist Gahan Wilson who is well known for his humorously gruesome, irreverent cartoon illustrations in The New Yorker, Playboy and National Lampoon.
Included in the film are candid on-camera interviews with Stephen Colbert, Guillermo Del Toro, Neil Gaiman, Hugh Hefner, Lewis Black, Stan Lee, and Randy Newman along with Wilson himself, his wife and many others.
Jaffe brilliantly captures Wilson, known as the master of Macabre, creating a truly inspiring film that portrays the off-center genius as one of America's unique and creative treasures.
Jaffe is a partner in Helix Films where he has a Gahan Wilson 3D animated movie, co-written by Jaffe and Nicholas Meyer called Eddy Deco in pre-production. Jaffe is also attached to direct a psychological thriller "I'll See You Again."
