Stripped: The Comics Documentary (2)

Dave Kellett (creator of Sheldon and Drive) and cinematographer Fred Schroeder have posted eight rough-cut clips from their documentary. The duo had initially raised their initial goal of $58,000 to finish the production of the film, but quickly exceeded it. They’ve continued their fund-drive to raise more money to pay for enhancements and extra features. Right now they have raised $80,800 and have nine more days to go.
Here are the featured cartoonists in their latest video:
Jeff Smith (Bone) On the minimalist, essential nature of cartoons
Scott Kurtz (PvP) On childhood aspirations of being a cartoonist
Darrin Bell (Candorville) On the lack of inclusive role models in comics
Scott McCloud (“Understanding Comics”) On inventiveness in the digital age, and the dominance (so far) of strips
Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) On being a self-taught cartoonist
Richard Thompson (Cul de Sac) On getting a late-night e-mail from Bill Watterson
Greg Evans (Luann) On listening to your characters
Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics) On how comics fell into three set genres
