Believe it or not, in about a year and a half, it will be the 30th anniversary of the original Back to the Future film in 2015. The time-traveling adventures of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown have entertained and sparked the imagination of generations. You can see examples of Back to the Future’s influence in LEGO sets, iPad Covers, and Nike sneakers, just to name a few, and now a group of filmmakers want to make a documentary about the film’s iconic DeLorean Time Machine, and its impact on pop culture over the last 30 years.
The documentary is called Back in Time, and director Jason Aron and his filmmaking team want to make the film a reality. They have turned to the crowd-sourcing website Kickstarter to get the ball going on their documentary. The film’s focus will surround the cultural impact of Back to the Future over the last 30 years, from the viewpoint of the DeLorean time machine.
The filmmakers involved with Back in Time are prepared to offer Back to the Future fans anything from a thank you on the film’s website, to T-shirts and DVDs, to DeLorean time machine replicas, and even up to an executive producer’s credit on the film itself. Back in Time is scheduled for release in 2015, just in time for Back to the Future’s 30th anniversary.
As we get closer to 2015, be on the lookout for more Back to the Future memorabilia, comic books, films, and other merchandise to tie into the film’s 30th anniversary. Check out Jason Aron’s Kickstarter page if you would like to contribute to his documentary. It looks like it will be money well spent if you are a big Back to the Future fan. (Or you could check out this comic that imagines how the movie would have played out if they’d kept Eric Stoltz in the Marty McFly role.)
