A documentary about iconic fantasy author Neil Gaiman will be available exclusively on Vimeo in a little more than a month, and the first trailer has been released.
Titled Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously, the documentary will chronicle the Doctor Who and American Gods writer’s youth in Portsmouth (in the UK) and take us through his first success -- that'd be DC Comics imprint Vertigo's Sandman comic series -- to a more recent body of works including novels like Coraline, The Graveyard Book and The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
Fun fact: Gaiman became the first author to win both the Newbery and the Carnegie medals for the same novel (The Graveyard Book).
The documentary will be told in Gaiman’s own words but will also feature interviews with the late, great Terry Pratchett (Discworld), Bill Hader, Michael Sheen, Lenny Henry, Wil Wheaton, Stoya, JH Williams III, Lev Grossman, Brea Grant, Merrilee Heifetz, Charles Brownstein, Sam Kieth, Jill Thompson and Colleen Doran. It'll also include some of his chats with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, Jonathan Ross, John Barrowman, Grant Morrison and Phillip Pullman (His Dark Materials).
