Imagine it’s 1982 and you’ve just seen Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time. I certainly remember it’s effect on me. For three kids in Mississipi with some spare time and a camera, it became a 7 year odyssey to do a shot-for-shot remake of that seminal adventure flick. As far as I’ve seen, it’s nigh-impossible to get a copy of the full adaptation, but this site has some cool archival information and the trailer. Cool stuff.
I heard these guys interviewed on NPR a few months back, and I have to say that’s some serious ingenuity and imagination at work. Cool stuff.
