The Storyboard Book


Experience what’s been called the “greatest fan film ever made” as planned, shot-for-shot, through the eyes of its director, Eric Zala. See for the first time, Zala’s drawings (602 drawn from memory!) of every shot in RAIDERS before the original was released outside of theaters. This handmade blueprint used to create RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION over the next six years is finally revealed – along with production sketches, childhood correspondence, rare photos… and a local police report! Each mailed copy will be signed by Eric Zala, author/director.
