    Heavy Metal Original Animation Cel Portfolio and Original Pencil Art Portfolio (Guardian Trust in Trust, 1981). Directed by Gerald Potter and produced by Ivan Reitman, Heavy Metal was an anthology of various sci-fi and fantasy stories adapted from the magazine of the same name. This original portfolio contains eight hand-painted production cels including: "B-17 Co-Pilot"; Captain Stern"; "Police Officer"; "Gloria"; "Den"; "Elder", "Taarna's Mount", a cel with a photo-paste-up of the spacebound car from the title sequence, and two cels from the movie "Wizard", housed in a custom designed Heavy Metal folder. Only 1,000 sets were released, with no two exactly alike. A Certificate of Authenticity signed by Associate Producer and Art Director Michael Gross is included. Also included is an original pencil art portfolio containing seven original graphite animation art drawings that were actually used in the production of this ground-breaking rock and roll animation feature length film, including: "B-17 Co-Pilot"; "Little Girl"; "Den"; "Hanover Fiste"; "Edsel"; "Alien"; and "Regolian". They come with a COA signed by Associate Producer and Art Director Michael Gross. The portfolios are numbered #271/1000. Pages are toned and the portfolios show wear along the edges with some creasing. The pencil art portfolio also has staining, most notably along the right. Overall in Very Good condition.
