Help Finish Lost Ark Tribute 30 Years In The Making
A few years ago, we introduced you to an amazing fan-made film; a shot-by-shot recreation of Raiders of the Lost Ark. These boys spent every summer from '82-'88 slavishly recreating Raiders on their VHS camcorder. This is one of the most notorious and beloved fan films of all time. What they were able to pull off in their parent's basement with no budget is amazing enough to forget that our protagonists sure seem to bounce around in age as the film progresses.
They've even been fortunate enough to screen the film for Lucas & Speilberg, have a book written about them, and are even seeing themselves as the subjects of a documentary. Yet one thing still bothers our adventurers. There's still one scene they've never finished. The amazing fight sequence against the backdrop of the Flying Wing.
The boys (okay, to be fair... grown men) have turned to Kickstarter to raise the funds to shoot this final scene, and complete the adventure. They're close to their goal with only three days to go. I hate an unfinished project as much as the next guy, so maybe we can think about throwing them a few bones and finally calling "it's a wrap" on a project that was started back when we all had more hair.
Please tell me that they're not planning on recreating the sequels...
