The Academy of Achievement was founded by Brian Blaine Reynolds, an acclaimed photographer best known for his contributions to Life magazine and Sports Illustrated. Reynolds established the Academy of Achievement to bring aspiring young people together with real-life heroes — the kind of achievers he met every week on assignment. The Academy’s first annual Banquet of the Golden Plate program was held at Monterey, California in September of 1961.

Anyone that knows anything about film, will tell you that Bad Taste is a brilliant piece of celluloid. Anyone who disagrees with that, needs to see this making-of documentary. Today Peter Jackson is one of the most successful film directors in the world. Few big name directors get to do whatever they want, but when mr. Jackson said he wanted more than 200 million dollars to spend on remaking his all time favorite film, there were no objections, and King Kong came to be.
This 25 minute film explains how he made it to where he is today. He started with no budget. No studio. No professional equipment. No professional crew. No special effects wizards. No make-up department. No creature creators. No props. No locations. Nothing but his own love for film, and film making. And after four years of nothing but hard work and raw passion, he had produced the coolest, goriest and funniest low budget film in history.
