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

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, Lea Thompson, Dean Cundey, Alan Silvestri, Claudia Wells, James Tolkan, Donald Fullilove, Jeffrey Weissman, Kevin Pike, Michael Scheffe and Andrew Probert. It also includes Michael J. Fox Foundation fundraisers Terry and Oliver Holler, time machine/restoration expert Joe Walser, author and historian Rob Klein and hoverboard entrepreneurs Jill and Greg Henderson.

UPDATE, 7:30 p.m. PDT — The campaign has gone past its goal of $50,000 and is nearing $52,000.
