MaCabFilms and Glimmer Graphics have partnered up to sell limited edition Jeffrey Catherine Jones prints. All money from the sale will go towards the completion of the film. Some of these prints are signed and numbered by Jeffrey Catherine Jones herself.
If you’re a fan of art or comics please donate and support the production of the movie. We appreciate it!
Here’s some clips showing what went down at SDCC last week. Overall the show was a success for us and people loved the excerpts from the movie, which included the Intro credits and a part of The Studio segment. Many thanks to Mark Bode, George Pratt, Rick Berry, Bill Sienkiewicz, Henry Mayo, Robert Wiener, and the ever so lovely Weezie Simonson for taking their time to share the panel discussion with me. And especially to John Butler, who served as moderator, the awesome force behind the talented team of people who are working with me on editing the movie, and making it all seem so flawless. Thanks also to Richard Quan (Producer), Pete Koob (Editor), and Tom Yaniv (VFX), for the great clips that made it in time for Comic con, and the rest of the gang back at Cleaver Editorial and BSSP.
I am excited to announce that I was given an hour presentation panel at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con to talk about the documentary and to show some clips from the movie. I also have invited some of the “stars” in the movie to talk to the audience about Art, Comics and Jeffrey Catherine Jones. Hope to see you all there and thanks again for the continuing support from all you Jones’s fans out in the world.

Jeffrey Catherine Jones: The Documentary — Filmmaker Maria Cabardo is joined by artists Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra: Assassin), Mark Bode (Cobalt 60), Rick Berry (Double Memory), and George Pratt (Batman: Harvest Breed) for a preview and discussion of her upcoming documentary feature Better Things: The Life and Choices of Jeffrey Catherine Jones. Using interviews with Jones and a wide range of family, friends and colleagues, the film explores the late artist’s fascinating, challenging life and unique journey through the worlds of comics, illustration and fine art. Room 4.
This footage was used and shown at a development meeting by the producer. It has been uploaded on this blogsite so it can be shared with friends and fans. I am very excited about the upcoming LA shoot (with Berni Wrightson and others) and decided to show some of the footages that have already been shot at previous locations. Some of the art and photos used are just placeholders. Music by Salon of Refuse. Thanks for watching this sampler and I hope you enjoy it.
