From the 1980's into the late 1990's, Sierra On-Line was an industry-leading, revolutionary company producing some of the most ground-breaking and cutting-edge computer adventure games of all time. A combination of it's cutting-edge graphics, in-depth story lines, colorful characters and challenging feats, made Sierra's games and their designers house-hold names that are still remembered fondly and being played by their loyal fans today.
For the first time, a feature-length documentary film, entitled, "Heroes, The History of Sierra On-Line", is going to explore the people and the stories behind the company responsible for bringing countless hours of entertainment to millions around the world and laying the foundation for video games as we know them today.
Among Sierra's most popular game titles were, King's Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, Quest for Glory, Leisure Suit Larry, Gabriel Knight, Phantasmagoria, etc.

Risks and challenges
How Your Funding Will Be Used
Over the last year, the team here at Molotov Angel Productions has traveled the country interviewing the creative and business minds that made Sierra On-Line and it's games a success. We have had the amazing fortune of spending time and capturing the only on-camera interviews in recent history with Ken and Roberta Williams, the founders and driving force behind Sierra On-Line. We are very excited about the footage we have and can't wait to share it with all of you. In order to complete this film project and bring it to audiences, we need your support.
As with any film, the production costs are abundant. The funding needed needed will be utilized to complete the numerous and large post-production costs necessary to complete a quality, feature length documentary film of this kind.
At this time your pledged support will be going towards the following post-production elements-
Editing of film and creation of official theatrical trailer
Creation of original artwork and graphics for the film
Licensing fees for copyright music that comprise the film soundtrack
Development of the original score for the film
Marketing of the film to generate awareness
Costs associated with submission to film festivals
Our team here at Molotov Angel will work very hard to coordinate all resources necessary to delivery the incentive gifts on time. We will keep you updated on the status of these elements through online posts, email, etc. If there are any delays along the way, we will let you know right away.
We are committed to producing a film that can be enjoyed by all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
