The Raiders Guys Need Our Help

Some of you might be familiar with a little film called Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation - the shot-for-shot remake of Raiders that took young filmmakers Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala seven years to complete. It's a masterpiece in its own right and was the subject of a heartwarming book a few years ago entitled Raiders: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made by Alan Eisenstock. 

As it turns out, Jeremy Coon, the producer of Napoleon Dynamite, saw the Raiders: The Adaptation and is currently working on a documentary about its making with plans to make a narrative feature film.  As part of the documentary Chris and Eric want to go back and film the one scene that they weren't able to recreate: the flying wing sequence and they need our help to do it!

Instead of reading more about it, watch their Kickstarter video...


Now that you've seen what this is all about, what are you waiting for?  There's only fifteen days left and they have only reached 58% of their goal. Please head on over to the Raiders Guys and the Lost Airplane Scene Kickstarter Page and pledge what you can to this project. You won't regret it.  Trust me...
