I was so excited to find this Kickstarter in my Facebook feed this morning. My husband and I are HUGE trekkies and the passing of Leonard Nimoy was very sad even though we never met him he was a huge part of our childhood. I was so excited to see that his son Adam is trying to do this documentary of his dad as Mr. Spock.
About the Kickstarter:
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.
