IPF Productions is seeking funding through Kickstarter for their upcoming documentary REWIND THIS! This film looks to document the advent of the video market in the '80's, and its impact on the film industry.
Docs like this are my crack. I watch them for hours and suck in every piece of information like a sponge. I am so excited to have found this, and just made my contribution. If you are interested, throw in a couple of bucks. They're looking to raise a total of $15,000.
Check out their page on Kickstarter and view the trailer below. I dare you to not be psyched.

About this project
The introduction of home video had a massive impact on culture, business, and the development of media. The film-going public had unprecedented control over their viewing schedule, burgeoning filmmakers had inexpensive tools with which to create, and a new business was formed that expanded the reach of an already exploding industry. Videotape redefined the way modern society interacts with media. REWIND THIS! aims to be the definitive account of the home video revolution and a showcase of its continuing legacy.
