Quoted from sed6:
Does Spooky get more money if we buy? I hope so! I bought it with that intent A great watch. I'm going to encourage my wife to watch it also. Seeing a family make pinballs might help her appreciate my crazy hobby a little more.
Very glad you enjoyed the film! Dana and I are not a part of Spooky Pinball. We ARE big fans of their podcast and the way they do business, however. When the idea for doing this film struck me back in June 2015, everything you read about pinball companies on Pinside seemed like bad news. I thought Spooky's story was incredible and really deserved to be told.
We weren't 100% sure if we could pull off a full length film. I wasn't sure I had the skill to do it, having never worked on a project like this. We didn't announce the film during the first year of working on it, in case it crashed and burned and I couldn't get it together. It wasn't made to make money. I just felt like I HAD to do it and I'd be kicking myself if I didn't at least give it a shot. It DID take quite a bit of convincing. "Why would anybody want to make a movie about us??", we heard more than once.
We're incredibly grateful to Chuck and Kayte and everyone that lent a hand in bringing this movie to life. Their dream was to build pinball machines, ours was to make a film - Team Spooky helped make that a reality and we can't thank them enough.
