Exploring the Streb Archives

Hi this is Geraldo Mercado, the archivist at Aubin Pictures!  Aubin Pictures has been given unprecedented access to over 300 hours of archival footage spanning Elizabeth Streb’s early days as a dancer to her work as STREB’s action architect today.  I've had the honor of exploring the archives, as we bring HOW TO BECOME AN EXTREME ACTION HERO into post-production.

It’s a treat to be able sit down and experience the scope of an artist's work.  There are so many great moments that we can’t wait to share with you in HOW TO BECOME AN EXTREME ACTION HERO.
