‘Back to the Future’ Documentary Nears $50,000 Crowdfunding Goal

12 March 2015 6:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fans have raised 90% of the $50,000 crowdfunding goal to complete “Back in Time,” a documentary about “Back to the Future,” in three days on Kickstarter.

It’s the second go-round at tapping fans. The documentary received $45,000 from Kickstarter in 2013, touting the film as being told from the viewpoint of the DeLorean Time Machine.

“Put simply, it’s the ultimate documentary related to the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy,” said filmmaker Jason Aron. “It’s a film that digs deep into what these movies have meant to our culture. It’s not a simple ‘making of’ documentary, but rather one which explores the incredible, lasting resonance of the trilogy through the eyes of cast members and crew of the films, as well as some of the ultimate fans of the trilogy. Plus, the DeLorean Time Machine itself, of course.”

The film includes commentary from Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Bob Gale, Christopher Lloyd, »

Watch: Visit The Special Location Effects Of 'Return Of The Jedi' In 5-Minute Video Plus Latest 'The Force Awakens' Rumors

7 January 2015 7:36 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're less than a year away from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hitting theaters and reigniting one of cinema's most enduring and beloved franchises. But before we dip into the new worlds that J.J. Abrams and co. are conjuring, now more than ever is the time to look back on the movies that got us here. And today comes a pretty nifty little treat that takes a behind-the-scenes peek at "Star Wars: Episode VI — Return Of The Jedi."  In this five-minute video (via 35Mm) Kevin Pike (check out his Patreon page), credited with Location Special Effects on 'Jedi,' reminisces about his work on the blockbuster (which he notes was called 'Revenge Of The Jedi' when he first joined) over some terrific vintage footage of the various sets used for the movie. It's pretty great stuff, with Pike not only sharing his memories but how certain effects were created. »
