‘Ghostbusters’ fans now have a documentary they can get behind by supporting the kickstarter campaign for ‘Cleanin up this town’. Below is the story behind the documentary film ‘Cleanin up this town: Remembering Ghostbusters’. It’s a family thing.
Eight years ago brother and sister team Anthony and Claire Bueno commenced production on the retrospective documentary CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters. Their intention to tell the definitive story of how these much loved films were made, the visual effect techniques used and to clear up any mystery of how these films came to fruition.
Having gathered OVER 70 INTERVIEWS (full list on IMDb) including actors Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Director Ivan Reitman, producers Joe Medjuck and Michael C. Gross, visual effects crew Richard Edlund, John Bruno, Dennis Muren, Steve Johnson, Randall William Cook, Howie Weed and Ned Gorman. Ray Parker Jr., Randy Edelman and editor Sheldon Kahn, the magnitude of the project has grown proving too much for only two people to make.
We feel, to enable us to complete the feature length documentaries about both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II; do justice to the people who have graciously given their time, shared their skills and stories and to deliver to the fans the kind of original, detailed documentary that they not only have longed for but honours the loyalty they deserve; we really do need to take one more trip to the US to complete filming and enlist additional team members “with the tools and the talent” that we simply don’t have to make this a truly polished documentary that audiences will love.
Unfortunately our last production trip to the States represented “the last of the petty cash.” So to enable us to finish, we have decided that a Kickstarter campaign is the only way to help us complete this documentary in 2016 and help make CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters the essential companion to the Ghostbusters movies.
We have so many wonderful, insightful stories, anecdotes and rich interviews from hugely talented people, some of which have never spoken on camera before about these films that capture these moments of cinema history.“So call it fate, call it luck, call it karma, these things happen for a reason” and the time is now to raise the money so we can share these films with the world.
So to plagiarise from Pete Venkman “No job is too big, no donation is too big” to help us release the film in 2016.
So go check out their kickstarter page and lend your support to the ultimate ‘Ghostbuster’ companion!
