Debuting at the SXSW Festival earlier this, month, the documentary, “Print The Legend,” has been the subject of many questions as of late. The majority have been, “When will we get to watch this film, and where will it be playing?”
The film which explores the business side of 3d printer manufacturing, as companies race towards delivering the latest, greatest 3d printers to market, has had its rights acquired by internet media giant Netflix. The documentary, directed by Luis Lopez, and Clay Tweel, and featuring many of today’s biggest names in the 3D printing industry such as Bre Pettis, Maxim Lobovsky, and Avi Reichental, won the SXSW Film Festival’s special jury recognition award for editing and storytelling in the documentary feature category.
“It’s so rare for a film to capture history in the making, and Luis Lopez and Clay Tweel have done just that in their skillful presentation of the elation and betrayals experienced by young entrepreneurs detailing the groundbreaking technology of 3D printing,” Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of original documentary and comedy, said in a statement.
The team behind the documentary also seem excited about this announcement,
“From the day we knew the 3D printing world would be our focus, we set our sights on a SXSW premiere,” Luis Lopez, Clay Tweel, and producer Steven Klein said in a statement. “To premiere in front of the most tech savvy and entrepreneurial festival crowd in the world and partner with the Netflix documentary team — who work brilliantly at the cutting edge of distribution – is truly a dream come true.”
The terms of the deal have not been released. Stay tuned to the “Print The Legend” forum thread for updates about when this film will be released by Netflix. Check our the Trailer below:
