Rare original film press kit for the 1984 comedy movie "Up the Creek", starring Tim Matheson, Dan Monahan, Sandy Helberg, Stephen Furst, Jennifer Runyon, Jeff East, and James B. Sikking.
Film/movie press kits are promotional tools primarily used to generate publicity (a 'buzz'). A press kit is used to send details of the film to the media & journalists as well as acquisitions executives. Older vintage film press kits from pre-1990 (such as this one) were usually hand-typed and photocopied. A typical press kit will usually contain:
• A professional portfolio folder, usually with the film title & logo
• A complete list of cast and crew (aka 'cast and credits')
• Production Notes (about the film, plot synopsis, etc.)
• Individual Actor Biographies
• Black & White photograph publicity "stills" from the film, usually 8x10s.
• Original authentic 'Up The Creek' outer folder from Orion Pictures Corporation production company
• 8-page 'Production information' (about the picture 'Up The Creek')
• 7-page list of cast, crew and credits from 'Up The Creek'
• 15 different cast & crew biographies totaling about 30 pages
• 9 different 8"x10" B&W glossy photograph stills from the movie
Condition: Very good. Photographs are pristine, like new. Paper may or may not show signs of fading/discolouration due to age. Outer folder has minor creasing and/or rounded corners. Press kit ships inside a plastic sleeve with a thick cardboard 13" x 10½" backing.
BUYER'S TIP: The stills alone sell for up to $20 apiece on eBay/Etsy. This kit alone has 9 stills.
