About the Production:

"I am a kid of the 1980s and was inspired by 'Star Wars,' 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' 'Back To the Future,' and old movie serials. As a kid I devoured countless comic books, 8 bit video games, and movie magazines such as Starlog, Cinefastique, Fangoria, Cinefex, and Famous Monsters of Filmland. I spent my high school years working for a video production company. When other kids were working at fast food restaurants, I was laying out graphics on a Video Toaster by NewTek. This movie is the culmination of my formative experiences." -- Mark Ross

In production.
