"What does it really take to create and complete a motion picture outside of the Hollywood system?" Earlier this year, we reported that Patrick Read Johnson's long-awaited film 5-25-77, about the opening night of Star Wars in 1977, might finally be released this year. Johnson announced he was driving across America, bringing everything to Hollywood to try and get the film distributed. In the meantime, he decided to make a documentary about that journey, and so the Hearts of Dorkness was born. We missed this trailer when it first hit, but came across it and still thought it worth featuring while we wait for updates on 5-25-77. Enjoy!
Watch the first trailer for Patrick Read Johnson's Hearts of Dorkness, on the Making of 5-25-77:
Hearts of Dorkness is a documentary in-the-making about the making-of Patrick Read Johnson's award-winning film, 5-25-77. "Right now, Patrick is driving across America to save his film, 5-25-77! We—The Hearts of Dorkness team—are following along with him, recording his experiences, and sharing them with you." Everything goes onto the official HeartsofDorkness.com website, so bookmark that page and support Patrick on there. I've been patiently waiting to see this ever since we first ran the trailer back in 2009; it was actually filmed back in 2007, but has been stuck trying to get released ever since. The perfect nerdy roadtrip doc to compliment what looks to be a geeky, but outstanding, indie gem. Hey Patrick - when can we see it?!
