Published Mar 12, 2019A new documentary centred on the life and work of late Canadian musician Nash the Slash (a.k.a Jeff Plewman) is expected to see release in 2019. As the long-awaited feature enters its post-production stage, those behind the film have now shared a new trailer, as well as launched a new crowdfunding campaign.
The latest look at the doc cuts together footage and photographs from the Toronto-based artist's solo career and his time with prog rockers FM, splicing in clips of interviews with the likes of Owen Pallett, Gary Numan, Don Pyle, Danielle Dax and more.
Those behind the film have also launched a crowdfunding campaign to help cover post-production costs. Perks included as part of the Indiegogo campaign, which can be viewed here, include cassette tapes, vintage merch, signed prints, and three one-of-a-kind violins that were owned and used by Plewman himself.
Of Plewman's career, Numan offers in the trailer, "It always surprised me that he didn't become huge, that the whole world didn't recognize it."

And You Thought You Were Normal is expected to see release through Ottawa/Toronto production company Side Three Media this year. The film is co-directed by Kevan Byrne and Tim Kowalski.
Plewman passed away in 2014, aged 66.
