Check out these promotional details below for 1982: Greatest Geek Year Ever. A new documentary that is using Kickstarter to get off the ground. LRM Recently worked with Mark A. Altman on an upcoming project of our own. So we are more than happy to share what Altman is working on now. Check out the official promo below.
From award-winning producers Mark A. Altman (The CW’s Pandora, The Librarians, The Fifty-Year Mission books) and Roger Lay, Jr. (Star Trek: The Roddenberry Vault, The Twilight Zone 60th: Remembering Rod Serling, Pacific Rim: Shatterdome Strike) comes the ultimate look back at the greatest geek moviegoing year of all-time filled with exclusive interviews, rare behind-the-scenes photos and exclusive never-before-seen clips in a fun, lively, no holds barred celebration of the seminal movie-going year of 1982.
You can help pay tribute to the greatest geek moviegoing year ever by supporting this epic documentary celebrating the 40th anniversary of some of the best movies ever made including Blade Runner, E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial, Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, John Carpenter’s The Thing, Conan The Barbarian, The Road Warrior, Tron, Poltergeist, The Dark Crystal and many, many more!
1982: GREATEST GEEK YEAR EVER! is not just a documentary… it’s a time machine that takes viewers back to one of the greatest years in movie history as we examine the biggest blockbusters as well as the cult classics that made it so unforgettable.
This is the film that will take viewers behind-the-scenes at a time when fandom was in its infancy, featuring rare interviews with genre superstars from in front of – and behind the camera – of the biggest and most influential movies ever made.
Made by fans for fans, 1982: GREATEST GEEK YEAR EVER! will be a celebration of the single greatest moviegoing year for fans ever with some of the most seminal films that forever defined their genres. You may have never prayed to Crom before, but this is the year he’ll deliver on your most fervent fantasies. This is the year we party like it’s 1982.
The great news is that we’re not starting from scratch! We have already invested a lot, both financially and emotionally, into the production of the film which has been 40 years in the making.
While the producers have funded much of production out of their own pockets because of their love for the films featured, your help is needed to complete the film and license the hundreds of film clips, news footage and photos that will be used in the documentary, pay for travel for crew people and equipment across the globe to conduct additional interviews and pay some of the behind-the-scenes crew that will be working on the film in hair and make-up, production legal, clearances, accounting (boring we know, but necessary), etc.
Without these funds it would be impossible to complete production and release the film to theaters for these movies’ 40th anniversary in 2022 and eventually on home video and streaming next year.
After the unavoidable Kickstarter fees and taxes, our fans then get their rewards (and profound gratitude from the filmmakers!) for their help in making the film a reality. Then, the entirety of the rest of the funds raised will go straight into the acquisition of additional clips, filming even more interviews around the world and creating companion merchandise like a coffee table book and toys. It’s really as simple as that.
Kickstarter Budget Estimate
10% Kickstarter fees and taxes.
75% Production Budget For Documentary including funds for filming, travel, interviews, clip clearances, production legal, post-production, COVID mitigation, insurance and more.
When this project is completed, it will be one of the most in-depth and comprehensive films ever produced devoted to the making of the most classic genre movies ever made. And to make this the definitive movie on the subject we have the dream team of genre luminaries behind the film’s production.
You can make any contributions to the campaign, or get more information Here. This does sound like the kind of geek project that we here at LRM love. After all, to quote Obi-Wan Kenobi ‘that’s, why, we’re here!’.
