Los Angeles-based artist, Willard Snow, showcases his unique and captivating art, with just an iPhone, some paint, and the power of rock-and-roll. Many years in the making, this artistic documentary film not only is a showcase for Willard Snow’s art but is a work of art on its own with musical performances, special effects, and original music with new Pop-Rock Songs surely to catch the attention of Radio DJ’s nationwide. 

Legends and Idols takes on a classic modern experience, as it depicts the struggles that every artist must face when following the muse. Legendary artist, Willard Snow, faces many obstacles along the way, yet is determined to forge a path. Willard is most known for creating astounding and intricate painted portraits of Rock and Rollers Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Jerry Garcia and others. Speaking on the creative direction of the film, Director Mark Knudson shares his feelings: 

I hope this film will inspire other artists across the country and around the world to persevere with their artistic vision.”

Guest Stars interviewed in the film, who take interest in Willard and his art include Johnny Romeo the world famous Australian Pop-Artist, who’s work flows in a similar vein as Willards, Mark Schulman who drums for Pink, and Jon Anderson of Yes. Embedded in the film are music video style scenes of the creative process and artistic scenes complementing the art being introduced throughout the film.

Woo hoo! I loved it! Had me glued to the screen! Very well done.” — Eva Marie

The film’s soundtrack follows a repertoire of artists who are friends of Willard’s and who’s music is inspired by some of Willard Snow’s favorite musical artists including Yes, The Grateful Dead, and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. Original songs included in the film, like “Jupiter’s Return” and “Gods of Eden”, were written by Paul Barrett and his band One World Government, most notably recognized at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Much of the film surrounds a special snare drum project for Pink drummer Mark Schulman. At Mark’s request, Willard designs and paints it. The delivery of the snare brings the film to life with Mark’s personality and enthusiasm over the final product. Mark Schulman contributed to the soundtrack with ‘Zades Playground’, which can also be heard in the film as Willard paints the drum. Michael C Drebert, the film’s composer has also written and recorded several new Pop-Rock songs for the film including ‘My Heart’ that match the themes which inspire the soul.
