We love fan projects and this one looks like a great one. A fun look at four different passionate Star Wars fans and how their fandom effects not only family life but everyday life. Here is a very fun project that most Star Wars fans will find exciting.
The Real Fans project was filmed at the start of 2015 and followed 4 completely different fans (that are friends) to Celebration Anaheim all through well over a year (including leading up to The Force Awakens and after it’s release).
Each Episode will be 15 – 30 mins (actual time per episode TBD after editing) and there will be approx 12 – 17 episodes total (again, TBD while editing)
This will be the 3rd project that Filmmakers Cris Macht
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5277601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 and Ian Vacek
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3051870/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 produced together.
Why do they need your help?
“The Risks and Challenges are always financial. When you don’t have enough….you can only do so much, when you have more financing avail, you can do more. The FIlmmakers Produced this project and put their own money into it. But honestly, It is difficult to mention what the risks and challenges are because Cris Macht has already released 3 documentaries (2 of them successfully funded through kickstarter – the first one he funded on his own!). The Real Fans project has already been filmed, except for the confessionals and is in the Post Production/ Editing process. Not only will your financial contribution get you some cool perks but it will help reimburse the filmmakers the expenses that they have covered, as well as paying for post production costs – ESPECIALLY EDITING! If the goal is not met – it will be difficult to release the project as it will be a financial burden during post production. Cris and Ian believe (along with their fans) that all their productions are made for the fans by the fans -YOUR support is vital!”
So there you have it! If you like the sound of the project and you want to help them out, you can head on over to Kickstarter and check it out for yourself.
