How It Started

Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the birth and evolution of Spock. And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series was not that far away. Dad agreed that now was the right time, and that he was 100% committed to collaborating with me on this project. He also reminded me that we were (then) just days away from the 50th anniversary of the start of production on “The Cage,” the original pilot for Star Trek in which Dad first appeared as Mr. Spock.

Please participate in my Kickstarter campaign and help me complete a project that was important to my dad and has become extremely important to me.

Thanks again for your time and consideration.

LLAP,

 Who Is Involved With This Project?

Earlier this year, my father and I reached out to 455 Films to help us produce this project. 455 Films is made up of producers David Zappone, Kevin Layne and Joseph Kornbrodt. Dad chose this company because he was familiar with the Star Trek related films they have produced with William Shatner and was impressed with their work. David, Kevin and Joseph are also very well versed in the Star Trek tradition, and have worked previously with all of the important players in the world of Star Trek

With their background in production and my experience in directing over 45 hours of network television, I'm very confident that we're going to deliver an entertaining and enlightening film about the lives of Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock.

In addition, I'm excited to announce that Zachary Quinto has generously agreed to narrate the film about the famous Vulcan, a character he now knows quite well himself.

 So, What's Next?

We're only just beginning our campaign on Kickstarter, but we're not coming to the table unprepared. In addition to having already completed a considerable amount of research on this film, I have personally compiled a treasure trove of pictures of the Nimoy family and of Dad in his many roles before and after Mr. Spock. And, of course, we have some great pix of Spock as well.

The funding of this film through Kickstarter will enable us to continue with production -- which will mostly take the form of filming interviews of Dad’s friends, colleagues and family members. It will also enable us to license the hundreds of film clips and still photographs of Mr. Spock as he has appeared on television and in feature films over the last fifty years. Funding will then buy us time in the editing room, where I will be poring over the film clips and photographs and never-before-seen home movies as well as Star Trek artifacts -- some of which have not seen the light of day for nearly fifty years! 

Once the edit is complete, we can then start working with a composer for a score which will play alongside the prerecorded music -- which we will also have to license. (Can you imagine referring to Dad’s recording career without hearing a few seconds of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins? Unthinkable!) We also need funding for a sound editor and to pay for a final mix of all the elements.

What is this film really about?

This film was originally conceived as a tribute to Mr. Spock to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original series. Now, with Dad's passing on February 27th, the film will also explore the incredible career and artistry of Leonard Nimoy. But what has become increasingly apparent as I continue to work on this project is that it's also a personal journey. 

Although I had initially intended to take a somewhat detached, objective view of the subject matter, more and more people involved in this film have urged me to interject some of my own perspective on what it was like growing up with Mr. Spock in the house, and how Dad's new-found celebrity and meteoric career affected my life. 

How can I get more involved with the project? 

Spread the word via social media! While the fundraising is a critical part part of our focus right now, we also want to engage the community in any way possible. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter, share our story on your own blog or social media (tag us at @LoveOfSpock!), and keep an eye out throughout our campaign for other messages of how to get involved.

Reward Fulfillment… Or, When Do I Get My Stuff?

Please note, most digital rewards will be fulfilled through our website, www.ForTheLoveOfSpock.com in a special "Members Only" section. Assuming that our goal is fulfilled, we'll be reaching out to everyone shortly after the end of the campaign with details about claiming your rewards.

The digital screening will be hosted here as well, through the magic of VHX.tv. While we won't know the premiere date(s) until much closer, we're hoping to have the film ready to go in early-to-mid 2016. Once it's ready to be released, you'll receive information with a specially generated link. The link will be provided some time around the premiere, and will be available for a limited period of time. Not only will you be able to stream the film online, you will also be privy to a special, exclusive introduction and Q&A from the team.

** Please note that we intend to give you all an opportunity to see the film prior to the general public. Depending on our distribution requirements, there is a chance this may be following certain "premiere" festival screenings -- but rest assured we want to make sure you get to enjoy the film before the general public and celebrate our joint success! **

Though the film screening rewards won't be available until sometime in 2016, we'll fulfill all other gifts after the campaign has ended, as they become available. If you have any questions, check out the "Estimated Delivery" under each reward, or contact us directly at SpockDocumentary@gmail.com.

Our team is determined to resolve any problems or answer any questions in a timely manner, so please don't hesitate to contact us!

Risks and challenges

No film project of this scale is without its own risks and challenges - but we're confident that we've assembled the right team to make this film professionally and within our deadline. And with the generous time and support of writers, directors and actors associated with STAR TREK (people like our narrator, Zachary Quinto) who have already agreed to appear on camera, I have no doubt that we will be able to tell the story that my dad and I intended.

We know our fundraising goal is ambitious. But we're confident that through YOUR support, we can accomplish it in the time allotted -- but now IT'S UP TO YOU! As stated above, our $600,000 goal will help us pay for the interview process and most of the elements we need to license for this film. After processing fees and mailing, we’ll actually only net somewhere around $530,000. Enough to do what we promised to do? Yes, but with very little wiggle room!

Rest assured: every dollar raised through this campaign will find its way to funding this film or helping in the promotion and advertising campaign. But the more we can raise, the better the end product will be. This film is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for us, and we want to give it all we have to give.

FAQ

  • Although my father and I had initially reached out to traditional entertainment financing sources, the response was "tepid" and those companies that were wiling to help finance came with serious restrictions which ran counter to the project we had in mind. There was also a major time factor: it was clear that we would not be able to obtain the minimum financing needed in time to have this film ready for the Star Trek 50th Anniversary celebrations next year.

    The most enthusiastic source for funding came from Kickstarter and other crowd funding platforms who enthusiastically approached us wanting to help make this project a reality. Additionally, we felt strongly about the idea of involving a community that, for nearly half a century, has shown such a passion for father as an artist and Mr. Spock as a role model.

    We don't want you to feel you're just "donating" to some hollywood production -- we want you to be a part of the creation of this independent film, and feel you are getting adequate rewards for doing so. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to message us and ask.

  • It can be hard to choose sometimes, we know. But for better or worse, Kickstarter's system only allows for ONE pledge per account - and therefore only one choice of reward level.

    Up to $100, all of our rewards build upon each other. After that, they become standalone (with access to the digital bundles and streaming link for the film. If you still can't choose one over the other, why not find a friend to pledge for you and share their reward?

  • Long and short is -- we're hoping to get the film to you before the general public, so we unfortunately can't promise that the subtitles will be in by then.

    Our goal right now is to meet our fundraising goal and be able to make the film in time for the 50th anniversary next year. Assuming we meet or surpass that goal, we will absolutely put some thought into trying to get these subtitles in as well. VHX.tv, our screening host DOES have the capability for subtitles, so if there's any chance the timing works out, our first priority will be to complete the English language subtitles, and immediately after that we will do our very best to make alternate language subtitles possible… but unfortunately it's not something we're able to promise at this point.

  • Great question!

    As of now, our film's distribution plan hasn't been determined. While many major studios still release DVDs / BluRay packages, much of the film industry is straying further away from physical release into a rapidly growing digital model - download, streaming and 'on the cloud.'

    As a relatively small, independent film with no locked distributor, we can't yet confirm when or if we will make a run of physical media (creating a professional-quality, limited run ourselves, without studio resources, would cost many thousands of dollars, which would take away budget we currently need for licensing & post-production). If we ARE lucky enough to secure a deal with a professional distributor, and don't self-distribute, we could be at risk of violating there deal and conditions by promising physical copies by a given date.

    If we figure out a way to do an allowed professional quality, short run duplication, we will include it as an update before the completion of the campaign.

    Last updated:
  • There is the possibility we're going to be digging up some other exclusive rewards throughout the campaign, so this is a great question.

    If that is the case, we'll update all backers via email, and you'll have the option through Kickstarter to change your pledge and/or reward level with no penalty.

    WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS (TREK CON)...

    … hopefully won't stay there, this time, but will be a memory you can share with others for years to come.

    Adam will be attending this year's Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, and will host a private dinner at Martorano's Restaurant at the Rio. At this special (approximately 2 hour) event, you'll be treated to a nice dinner, on top of which Adam will share stories about his dad, answer your questions, and show some special memorabilia from his collection (and maybe even a sneak peak at some new interview footage!).

    This will likely take place on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5th, 2015 (night before the convention) in a semi-private dining room. Includes dinner, does not include any travel, accommodations, or admission to the convention.

    If you are interested in other dates or locations, or would like to pledge for multiple seats at the table, please contact spockdocumentary@gmail.com to arrange.

    PITCHFORKS & POINTED EARS

    Straight from the collection of Steve Neill, special effects makeup artist whose distinguished career includes creating Spock's ears in the original films comes…

    … a set of SPOCK'S EARS, recast from the original molds used for STAR TREK: The Motion Picture (and beyond)! While perhaps not the actual original foam rubber worn on the big screen, these are undoubtably the next best thing you could get -- created by the same effects designer and cast from the original molding model used for the film.

    If that wasn't enough for a true Spock fan, Adam Nimoy will stop by the studio and sign the shadowbox display, along with Steve Neill, that they will come framed in. You'll get a special photo (or perhaps, video!) of Adam from this special moment included in the package, and a letter from Steve and Adam to verify authenticity.

    Only 5 pairs AVAILABLE for this limited offer!

    (… Pitchforks not included.)

    SET PHASERS TO STUN!

    We're incredibly honored to be able to provide a PHASER PROP given to us by Ken Palkow, one of the prop creators who worked on the phasers for "ST: Into Darkness" and the latest "Star Trek movie, now in production (not to mention a "dozen other major sci-fi films and series -- check him out!).

    These are NOT the cheap mass-produced versions. In fact, 'replica' doesn't do these justice -- they are created from the same materials, fabrication process and artist (same circuitry and everything, we're told!) as the on-screen props. Ken is generously assembling these from his remaining parts from the original build JUST for our campaign!

    Only TWO available! We'll throw in a letter of authenticity and signed photo with Adam.

    STANDALONE OFFER -- (but we'll send you both SPOCK digital bundles, private film stream, include your name in our credits and website, and hey, even give you some SpockSwag!).

    THE EARS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

    Not content to simply own a pair of ears molded from the original models?
    One lucky backer has the opportunity to GO THROUGH THE TRADITIONAL PROCESS as Leonard would have done WITH Steve Neill (original artist for the ears on "ST: The Motion Picture"), and have it documented with photos and video -- which perhaps might even make it into the DVD extras or a video feature on our website!

    Steve will invite you to his studio in Ventura, CA, will make a cast of your ears with prosthetic-grade alginate, and create stone positive life castings your own ears. From there, Steve will carefully sculpt the vulcan ear from clay ON TOP of your unique castings, create an additional mold from this, and after prepping and curing the molds, will finally create and bake the foam rubber appliances.

    After all of this, he'll bring you back in and apply the prosthetic ears in the same fashion Leonard would have had done for the films (additional Vulcan clothing and makeup optional). You'll walk away with video and photo documentation, as well as your own set of personalized ears AND the original molds created just for this experience!

    Travel and accommodations NOT included -- you must be available TWO to THREE consecutive days between late JULY and early SEPTEMBER of 2015, and willing to undergo the (multi-step!) process at Steve's studio in Ventura, CA.

    This is a GREAT one-of-a-kind experience package! STANDALONE, but in addition to the molds, ears, and documentation of the experience, we'll also throw in all of the digital bundles, video stream, and hey, even some cool SpockSwag.
