2022 was a pivotal year for us, and a number of you helped make that happen.
This message is obviously long overdue. I had intended to make this video before the holidays, but unfortunately I was ill and had to go to the hospital right before Xmas. I feel like I’ve been playing catch up ever since.
The montage you see includes a number of volunteers and employees behind the scenes, who are helping bring this documentary to life.
So allow me to finally say – to everyone who donated their time, their energies and effort –
To all those who agreed to interview for the film –
To everyone who donated to this project –
I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This documentary has been a longtime passion project, involving years of work and research. In addition to filming interviews across the country, we’ve done extensive animation, as well as digital cleanup of hundreds of images, including many never before published.
I’d like to say we’re at last in the home stretch, but as far as we’ve come, there’s still a long road ahead of us.
The film is still in the editing stages, and I’m looking to film even more interviews. And we need all the help and resources we can get.
Further animation, editing, color correcting, sound editing and mixing, clearances – all of these add up over time. Your continued support can help make it happen.
This project has fiscal sponsorship for non-profit 501c3 status, so donations are tax deductible where allowed by law.

Richard Amsel was one of the last great illustrators of the 20th century. His life was cut short at a very young age. But your efforts and contributions will help us in preserving Amsel’s creative legacy…for both art and movie lovers around the world.
