About this project

What if we didn't know the whole story?  Watch the Teaser Trailer Here! The Back the Future trilogy opened up our imagination to the possibilities of time travel, but also left us with many questions.  Yes, we’re the guys who tweet about hover boards, subscribe to Doc themed RSS feeds and spend all night posting to B2TF message boards.

While, we’ve learned more about B2TF than anyone should ever learn about any film, we’ve found that there is one question that the Back to the Future trilogy has never answered until now… 

We want to solve a mystery linked to the alternate universe established in Back the Future 2 as Doc here explains to Marty:

Doc: “Obviously the time continuum has been disrupted creating this new temporal events sequence resulting in this alternate reality…  Let me illustrate.. Imagine that this line represents time, the present 1985, the future and the past.  Right around this point in time somewhere in the past the timeline skewed into this tangent creating an alternate 1985

The moment that Doc is referring to is when Biff from 2015 hands an almanac to Biff from 1955 altering everyone’s projected paths and thus instantly creating an alternate tangent universe with an alternate series of possibilities.

Doc: “An alternate you, me Einstein…”

In other words: an alternate everything…  And in the original trilogy we learn the fate of almost everything in the alternate universe, with one exception… Where did Biff hide that Delrorean? And what if someone discovered it.  This is where the Paradox Film Project begins.

But in order to chase the missing DeLorean down the proverbial rabbit hole we need your help first.  We are looking for funds to cover our costs of productions, from crew to locations and from actors to yes, you’ve guessed it a fully ready for the silver screen DeLorean (it is SWEEEEET).  We are offering some awesome incentives including signed scripts, original story board art and the opportunity for a few lucky individuals to join our cast & crew live on set.  This project is after all by the fans, for the fans.

We have decided to keep Paradox a non-profit project and because we love Michael J Fox and his cause we will be donating 100% of every dollar made from this film directly to the Michael J Fox foundation.

We are calling on everyone who has ever owned a Back to the Future lunchbox or who has ever dreamed of riding a hover board to come help us journey back to 1955 so we can finally learn the fate of the second DeLorean.
