    "DeLorean - Living the Dream" Documentary Pre-Orders & Kickstarter

    Dear Fellow DMCTalk Members,

    For those who won’t already know me, I’m Jordan Livingston, and for more than a decade I’ve been working on an independent documentary called DeLorean — Living the Dream about the history of the DeLorean, and specifically, the international DeLorean community, of which all of us here are members.

    I need your help! I can't finish this movie without your support!!!

    I’ve just launched Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the remaining funds necessary to complete postproduction and release the documentary The Kickstarter campaign is now live! You can pre-order the movie by contributing to it here:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ving-the-dream

    DeLorean — Living the Dream is the only documentary ever produced about the history of the DeLorean car and the international DeLorean community, told firsthand by the passionate individuals who personally helped build and continue to live the DeLorean dream!

    If my fundraising goal isn't met, these moving, uplifting, and at times even inspiring portraits of DeLorean dreamers could be lost in time forever!

    Please be sure to pre-order your copy of the movie, and share this link with all your friends:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ving-the-dream

    I’m really counting on all of you in the DeLorean community to help spread the word via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). Getting the news out about the project is just as valuable as contributing financially. With your generous support and influence on social media, I’m confident together we can finally get this movie finished and released for all to enjoy!

    Sincerely,

    Jordan Livingston

    Kickstarter Description:

    DeLorean — Living the Dream chronicles the rise, fall, and unexpected comeback of the infamous DeLorean automobile. This feature-length documentary includes exclusive never-before-seen interviews with those who personally helped build the DeLorean legacy, along with many passionate individuals who continue to live the DeLorean dream today!

    I really need your help! I can't finish this movie without your support!!!

    Making DeLorean — Living the Dream has been a labor of love for more than a decade! What began as a small, self-financed, short film has grown over the past 12 years into an unprecedented project to document and preserve firsthand DeLorean stories from across the country, and all over the world. From San Francisco, to the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland, to the southernmost tip of New Zealand, this international filmmaking journey led me to meet dozens of new friends with diverse backgrounds (and even meet my wife!), all united by the common bond of DeLorean stewardship!

    If my fundraising goal isn't met, these moving, uplifting, and at times even inspiring portraits of DeLorean dreamers could be lost in time for forever!

    With principal photography and editing completed, I'm launching this Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds necessary to finish postproduction and release the movie. I’ve been dedicating my free time and personal finances to this project for 12 years now, and am so close to finally crossing the finish line, but the final phase of postproduction is very expensive! Costs such as sound mixing, music, animation, licensing archival footage, captioning, legal fees, and distribution expenses all add up fast!

    DeLorean — Living the Dream is the only documentary ever produced to tell the unprecedented true story of the international DeLorean community, and their contribution to the DeLorean's continuing history since its inception. While other DeLorean movies have previously focused on the sordid life of John DeLorean and the myriad scandals surrounding him, DeLorean — Living the Dream illustrates a different side of the DeLorean saga: an uplifting and inspirational story of the dreamers out there who've kept the DeLorean on the road for nearly four decades now, against all odds!

    Kickstarter campaigns are all or nothing. Either 100% of the fundraising goal is successfully raised (and the backer rewards are distributed), or absolutely none of the funds pledged are ever collected (and none of the rewards get distributed). Therefore it's vital to the fate of the movie that this Kickstarter campaign succeed! Your support could make all the difference!

    Movie Reviews:

    Don Schwartz, movie critic for the Marin Post and CineSOURCE, and author of the acclaimed Telling Their Own Stories: Conversations with Documentary Filmmakers, has screened an early cut of DeLorean — Living the Dream and published the movie’s first review:

    http://cinesourcemagazine.com/index....hn_z_delorean/

    Don concludes by stating: "The heart and soul of DeLorean — Living the Dream are the many people Livingston interviewed from all walks of life and several nations for his film. Their enthusiasm is contagious. Livingston has created a beautiful, engaging film about a maverick, his dream, his loss, and his unexpected legacy.”

    Barrie Wills, the longest serving employee of DeLorean Motor Cars Ltd., and author of John Z, the DeLorean & Me has also screened the movie and had this to say (abridged):

    "As the longest serving employee of DeLorean Motor Cars Limited in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland, and its third and final chief executive, I have followed Jordan Livingston's dedicated progress with this documentary over a number of years.

    This near-finished work illustrates vividly the joy of DeLorean ownership . . . Much of the history of the project and the car’s fascination is told by passionate people - a few simply fans, many who are car owners, some who were key to the manufacturing plant’s construction and the car’s record 28-month development programme . . . Others are former employees, who make it evident they regard working for the Dunmurry company as ‘the greatest job of their lives’.

    There are a number of moving scenes, one in which a former employee is close to tears when speaking of his lost job. Others are amusing, demonstrating genuine camaraderie and commitment to the cause and the car . . .

    Ending with a moving tribute to those who have departed this mortal coil since appearing in the documentary, Jordan Livingston’s heartfelt account of a car he clearly loves will prove a lasting tribute to the global auto industry’s greatest ever near miss. I thoroughly recommend a viewing.”

    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to reach out and let you all know that since launching just two days ago, I've received several additional generous donations of backer rewards, which I'd like to share with you.

    Stephen Wynn and DMC-Texas have kindly donated a complete set of official DMC Luggage (available in the new Time Traveler Package), a complete brand new DeLorean radiator and hose kit (available in the new Cool Car Package), and a brand new Fuel Pump / Sender Module (available in the new Plutonium Package).

    Additionally, Paul Nigh has donated two VERY RARE single-digit numbered editions of his DMC Lapel Pin Boxed Sets. These highly sought after collectibles are available for the very first time in the new Even More Style Package.

    Last but not least, Paul Nigh has enabled another DeLorean Time Machine Experience to be added in Spokane, WA (available in the DeLorean Experience Package).

    I'm extremely grateful to Stephen and Paul, and of course to everyone else who has also generously contributed such outstanding backer rewards to the fundraiser. These folks are perfect examples of what my movie is really about: the incredible DeLorean community and the stainless steel bond we all share!

    If you haven't already, please check out the Kickstarter fundraiser today:

    You'll find a wide variety of really exciting backer rewards at all price levels from $15 all the way up to $10k!

Please let them know why you support this movie, and that we really do need everyone's support in order to reach our goal and get the movie out there for everyone to enjoy! It will be YOUR support and outreach that transforms this Dream into a reality!

    Sincerely,
