Help Support A Star Wars Fan Reality Show By Cris Macht – Kickstarter campaign!

the real fans of the saga star wars

The Force Among Us filmmaker/ documentarian Cris Macht is releasing a Star Wars Fan Reality Show – The Real Fans of the Saga. The web series will be launched this summer and is approximately 12 plus episodes (around 20 min. in length). The debut season of the show follows the lives of four passionate and diverse Star Wars fans during the Year of 2015 through the release of The Force Awakens.

The Kickstarter Campaign for the Project was launched May 25th.

This will be the 3rd project that Filmmakers Cris Macht and Ian Vacek produced together.
After making 2 critically acclaimed Star Wars documentaries, Filmmaker Cris Macht wanted to do another Star Wars related project. Cris' wife loves reality TV as much as he loves Star Wars so he had the idea and inspiration to do a "reality style" project based around Star Wars fans!
Cris was also very inspired by passionate "conversations" he had with fans while making his 1st 2 Star Wars documentaries. he found it difficult to capture the "conversations" in the documentaries due to subjects being a little nervous while being interviewed - While filming the reality show - THE REAL FANS OF THE was much easier and "natural" to capture this! 
The Real Fans project was filmed at the start of 2015 and followed 4 completely different fans (that are friends)  to Celebration Anaheim all through well over a year (including leading up to The Force Awakens and after it's release). 
Each Episode will be 15 - 30 mins (actual time per episode TBD after editing) and there will be approx 12 - 17 episodes total (again, TBD while editing) 
Expect to see all the elements that make a reality show fun! Drama, Emotion, controversy, Hijinx, in depth conversations, confessionals, and music (by John Delvento , - Just to name a few! 
WHAT YOU GET - another great product from Filmmakers Cris Macht and Ian Vacek  

Risks and challenges

The Risks and Challenges are always financial. When you don't have can only do so much, when you have more financing avail, you can do more. The FIlmmakers Produced this project and put their own money into it. But honestly, It is difficult to mention what the risks and challenges are because Cris Macht has already released 3 documentaries (2 of them successfully funded through kickstarter - the first one he funded on his own!). The Real Fans project has already been filmed, except for the confessionals and is in the Post Production/ Editing process. Not only will your financial contribution get you some cool perks but it will help reimburse the filmmakers the expenses that they have covered, as well as paying for post production costs - ESPECIALLY EDITING! If the goal is not met - it will be difficult to release the project as it will be a financial burden during post production. Cris and Ian believe (along with their fans) that all their productions are made for the fans by the fans -YOUR support is vital!

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market. Read the full article here.
