Will 3D printers change the world — or fizzle in a morass of legal and technical improbabilities?
Whatever your perspective, check out the official trailer for Netflix’s original documentary pickup “Print The Legend,” about the nascent American 3D printing industry, set to debut Sept. 26 on the streaming service.
The film follows the people and companies working on consumer 3D printing, a potentially disruptive and controversial technology that enables reproduction of everything from guns to human organs. “Print the Legend” premiered at SXSW 2014, where it won the special jury recognition award for editing and storytelling in the documentary feature category.
“Print the Legend” was developed, produced and financed by Chad Troutwine (“Freakonomics”) and Audax Films, led by co-producer Andrew Kortschak (“Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia”) and exec producer Walter Kortschak.
The film was also produced by Dan O’Meara (“By The People: The Election of Barack Obama”) and Steven Klein (“Kenshot at the Bedfellow”). Exhibit A Films, including producer Seth Gordon (“Undefeated,” “Mitt,” “The King of Kong”) and exec producer Mary Rohlich (“Make Believe”), led the filmmaking team. Film’s co-directors are Luis Lopez and J. Clay Tweel, whose shared credits include “The King of the Kong” and “Make Believe.”
