Heart Of Darkness - Original Film Script, Drawings, Documents Of Art Director:
ARCHIVE OF ORIGINAL MATERIALS including the ORIGINAL SCRIPT for a FILM based on JOSEPH CONRAD’S THE HEART OF DARKNESS
This ARCHIVE of Materials is extensive. It includes an Original Working Script for Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", plus lots of associated material: Original Artwork, Handwritten Notes, Expense Receipts, Photos, Daily Shooting Schedules, lists and costs for shooting locations, sets, props, effects, vehicles, animals, etc. There is also the Original Signed Contract sent to Stewart Campbell from the Attorney for this proposed film of Heart of Darkness.
These materials are packed into a 3-ring binder, and in a manila folder.
This archive for the film HEART OF DARKNESS came from the Estate of W. STEWART CAMPBELL. W. Stewart Campbell was a 3 time Academy Award Nominee for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration. He was the ART DIRECTOR on such films as: CHINATOWN (Directed by Roman Polanski), THE RIGHT STUFF, SHAMPOO (Warren Beatty), and Many Others. You can check him out on the imdb website under his name W. Stewart Campbell.
Most of the materials seem to be from the 1989 - 1990 period.
It appears that this filmed version of The Heart of Darkness was either never completed, abandoned, or went into turnaround. A television film version of The Heart of Darkness, Directed by Nicolas Roeg and Starring Tim Roth and John Malkovich WAS produced and released in 1993, but there is no indication that W. Stewart Campbell was involved with that film.
An incredible collection of Original Documents, Artwork, Scripts, Schedules, etc. by a THREE TIME ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATED ART DIRECTOR. Shows everything that goes in to preparing for a major film, from the perspective of the Art Director.
