Iron Sky: The Trailer is Here!

In Summer 2010 I learned about a cool new geeky movie called Iron Sky that was crowd-funded. I decided to help finance it with a small sum.

Then the second Iron Sky teaser came out and I thought: Wow, this is looking really good! And I invested some more.

In December 2010, I was invited to attend the Iron Sky shootings in Frankfurt together with my brother. This is where we got to meet the crew, the actors, the people behind the movie and other investors. And I thought: Wow, this is not only cool, this is for real! Everybody was 100% determined to make this the coolest movie ever, and everybody put in so much attention to detail, love and true craftmanship that I thought: "Yep, this is going to be a true movie milestone!" And I also got to shoot an interview with the director and the inventor of Iron Sky. This time, my brother and I together invested a bit more to help this baby fly.

Iron Sky Update: A Behind the Scenes Video Interview

Iron Sky Update

If you've been following my blog or the Systemhelden.com podcast for some time, then you probably know that I'm a big fan of and small investor in the movie Iron Sky, a crowd-funded science-fiction comedy about the Nazis who went to the dark side of the moon in 1945 and come back to conquer Earth in 2018.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a pre-screening of the movie's beta version in Helsinki, Finland. What can I say? It exceeded my high expectations!

A van in the docks, at the set of "Iron Sky"

A deserted street in the docks. The rain is pouring.

A small, old, flower-power style painted Volkswagen van drives by at high speed, then stops below a lifting crane, tires screeching.

The door opens and a woman stumbles out of the vehicle, as if trying to escape. A tall man in uniform catches her violently. Intense exchange of words, probably four-lettered. She hesitates, then follows him back into the van.

"Cut!"

My brother and I are watching from the side of the road. It's a scene from the upcoming movie Iron Sky, a science-fiction comedy about the Nazis who escaped with UFOs to the dark side of the moon and who come back in 2018 to conquer the earth.

What?

It's a long, fun story, but you better see it for yourself. Early 2012, that is, when the movie is done.
