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!

Video: An Interview With the Fathers of "Iron Sky"

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.
