The Atlanta pro-tech movie lovers guild wants to do the amazing: Make a Ghostbusters proton pack. Lets get there...together!
Today, the entire Eastern Seaboard is alive with talk of incidents of paranormal activity.
The Ghostbusters are here to help, and we're ready to believe you!
Our guild (The Atlanta pro tech movie lovers guild) is dedicated to the production of from-scratch reproductions from some of our all time favorite movies. Last year 2 of our members busted their butts recreating screen accurate costumes from their favorite anime (Dragon ball Z).
This time were getting a little paranormal. Why? Because we think its awesome dammit.
Lets get techy!
- What the heck is a 'Ghostbuster' ?
Ghostbusters is a 1984 movie about 3 parapsychology professors who make it their life's work to rid New York City of ghosts, poltergeists and other paranormal entities.
What we are trying to accomplish is recreating the amazingly detailed equipment featured in the movie. There are several pieces of equipment that where used in Ghostbusters. We will be making the proton pack.
- What is a proton pack?
gbfans.com gives the perfect description of a proton pack.
"The Proton Pack is a fictional piece of particle accelerating machinery created by Egon Spengler and used by the Ghostbusters. It is their primary tool in the 1984 & 1989 Ghostbusters films for "busting" ghosts. It has a hand-held wand ("Neutrona Wand" as scripted by Dan Aykroyd) connected to a backpack-sized cyclotron. The theory is that it fires a 'semi-controlled' stream of protons that neutralizes the negatively charged electromagnetic radiation of a ghost allowing it to be held in the active stream."
The APTMLG will be working with a modest goal of 400$ to make a reproduction of a proton pack. Your generous contributions will be going exclusively towards all the equipment and parts needed to create the pack.
If we end up exceeding our goal of 400$ in financial support, our plan is to contribute it towards making---what else? More proton packs! Our dream goal (which we hope to soon make a reality) is of making 4 (and various accessories) for a team set which will be featured in the Dragon*con 2012 parade the September.
Thank you for your support! We couldn't do it without you!
