Adam Nimoy has begun a Kickstarter campaign
to fund the production of the documentary he and Leonard began developing before Leonard's passing. Rather than talking about it myself I'll just let some excerpts from the Kickstarter campaign
speak for themselves:YOU can help make Adam & Leonard Nimoy's plan to create a Spock Doc come true! Watch the video, share the vision & pledge what you can!How It Started
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.
Please participate in my Kickstarter campaign and help me complete a project that was important to my dad and has become extremely important to me.
Thanks again for your time and consideration.LLAP,Who Is Involved With This Project?
Earlier this year, my father and I reached out to 455 Films
to help us produce this project. 455 Films is made up of producers David Zappone
, Kevin Layne
and Joseph Kornbrodt
. Dad chose this company because he was familiar with the Star Trek
related films they have produced with William Shatner and was impressed with their work. David, Kevin and Joseph are also very well versed in the Star Trek
tradition, and have worked previously with all of the important players in the world of Star Trek
With their background in production and my experience in directing over 45 hours of network television, I'm very confident that we're going to deliver an entertaining and enlightening film about the lives of Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock.
In addition, I'm excited to announce that Zachary Quinto has generously agreed to narrate the film about the famous Vulcan, a character he now knows quite well himself.For more information on the project and Adam's video introduction, please visit the Kickstarter page.
