Hearts Of Dorkness Trailer: The Movie About The Movie About The Opening Night Of Star Wars...

This is an interesting story right here. Patrick Johnson is a director who is almost finished with his pet project of a film entitled 5-25-77, which chronicles the misadventures of a group of teens on the opening night of the original Star Wars movie. This sounds like a really great concept for a film and something that I would like to see very much. But Johnson is having a bit of trouble raising the last bit of money needed to finish the film, so he decided to take the unfinished version of 5-25-77 on the road and screen it for some fans to raise the funds himself. While on this cross country trek, Johnson has a group of friends who decided to film the whole roadshow experience and it has morphed into ANOTHER documentary parallel film entitled Hearts of Dorkness (I love the homage to the documentary made about Apocalypse Now in the title and the font they used as well). How great is this? Not only are we getting a fantastic indie film about the opening night of Star Wars, but in his quest to finance the film himself Johnson has inspired a whole separate film... the more dorky films that exist, the better the world is. Check out the trailer for Hearts of Dorkness after the jump, which is really a de facto promo for 5-25-77... its all really confusing...
