Disney Fan Project: Carl Barks: The Duck Man

The name Carl Barks doesn't quite ring a bell to the average person, but the impact he had on many Disney fans' lives were tremendous. From his work as an anonymous artist working for Walt Disney in the early days of the studio. Carl was one of the few people who developed Donald Duck and his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
Fans of the DuckTales series definitely have a lot to thank Mr. Barks for. Carl was behind creating the entire city of Duckburg, with the show's main character Scrooge McDuck, the Beagle Boys, Gyro Gearloose, Gladstone Glander and many more.

Disney fan and filmmaker Geoffroy Koeberle hopes to capture and pay tribute to the life and works of Carl Banks, who worked to create some of the most beloved characters and stories of the twentieth century. Geoffroy Koeberle worked as an assistant director on several major Hollywood films, including some recent films like Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Midnight in Paris andThree Days to Kill. 

"Carl Barks: The Duck Man is a film that will look to the readers and fans of duck stories and Carl Barks artwork to tell the story of the strip and its creator." It's offical Indiegogo page says. "As we explore the art and impact of Carl Barks through this unique perspective, the undying appreciation and love of duck and the man behind it will be evident in the anecdotes, stories, and memories shared by readers of the strip and friends and colleagues of Carl Barks." The film is also to be narrated by John Goodman.
