I’m sorry it takes me so long to reply. Have too many projects and a family. Not enough hours in the day. The film I was part of, How To Build A Time Machine, evolved quite a bit during production, as do most documentaries. I was to be only a small part of the feature. The original idea was to detail the story of John Tidor who claims to be a real time traveler from 2036, sent back to get his hands on an out dated IBM computer to bring back to his time to help set the world straight after a terrible war. You can find tons of info on him. The film was going to show dramnazations of this story.

Physicist, Michio Kaku was to be an interview in the film but backed out so the director went looking for a physicist and found Dr. Mallett. Mallett was onboard until he realized the film was to include the Tidor story, which at this point was widely considered a hoax. Jay had to choose between doing the Tidor story or having Mallet in the film. He chose the latter, and the film evolved into the story of two men obsessed, The scientist and the artist. Dr. Mallett came to my home to see my Machine as a work in progress and we were filmed in conversation. I was not sure what I would have to talk to him about but as it turned out, we spoke for hours and could have gone on. Many of the same things inspired us both and kids.

None of this footage ended up in the final cut. Dr. Mallett also came to a party at my home to unveil the completed Machine. We have become friends and see each other at screenings of the film. We will be answering questions at the next screening on Nov. 11th in NYC. Please do tell folks who you think might be interested in attending. Tickets here… http://www.docnyc.net/film/how-to-build-a-time-machine/
I hope to get back to explaining my project and what I hope to get help on to complete it in a more reliable way.
