About this project

With your help and support we hope to make the dream of finishing, what we believe to be a truly unique and dynamic film, a reality.

Time Capsule is a feature documentary experience combining vintage imagery with eclectic stories of the past and unique interests of today.

We follow five people/couples of the American generation born between 1925 to 1945, concentrating on specific stories of their lifestyle during the prime of their lives (50's-70's). We also highlight their current quirky interests to show how they are "still kickin" -  all in an attempt to capture their powerful, yet underestimated cultural significance to American history.

The majority of the film is already shot and the crew so greatly believes in the project and it's message that we've funded it's production completely out of our own pockets! Unfortunately this is where we've come up a little short. Kiddie-a-Go-Go, one of the storylines, will require a 7 day trip to Chicago for filming. And then we begin a long journey of promotion, festivals and distribution because we want EVERYONE to share this experience!

Our main purpose of Time Capsule is to dispel the misnomer, "Silent Generation", revive the declining appreciation and respect for these amazing members of society, and reconnect viewers with a generation that paved our way.

Thank you!
