Adam Nimoy‘s documentary on his father, For the Love of Spock, has raised much of the money necessary for the movie but more is needed to hit the goal of $600,000 before the fundraiser expires on July 1.

The documentary will only be created if the entire amount is funded.

As of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $551,332 of the $600,000 needed. It has been helped along by William Shatner, who in spite of his busy schedule, has been promoting it daily via his Twitter account. Shatner has also asked other Twitter personalities with large followings to join in and help to make it to the goal. “Tweet your followers to consider helping @adam_nimoy with raising money for [the documentary], he said, adding the link to the fundraiser.

Jonathan Frakes has also asked fans to help fund the documentary. “One more push for @LoveOfSpock,” he said. “Get in before July 1.”

For the Love of Spock “is a tribute film to Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock and will be released in time for the 50th anniversary of the original series. Zachary Quinto has agreed to be the narrator and tweeted about the film on his first day on set. Adam Nimoy has already interviewed William Shatner, George Takei and Walter Koenig.”

With only less than $50,000 needed, the goal is reachable. If you’ve thought about contributing to this project, now’s the time. Head here to read all about it and to help fund For the Love of Spock.

  1. t is not clear to me why the makers of this film pay the amount out of pocket and that Paramount will not contribute this documentary? Why the public and trekkies must pay the costs of the project through crowdfunding? Nice that a tribute is made to Mr.Nimoy, only the very remarkable that Hollywood does not remain finances the project and that the children of Nimoy do not want to bear the costs that will be incurred in this documentary. I wonder whether there is a good explanation for what the story behind it is that crowdfunding is needed to produce the documentary about Spock?

  2. Perhaps Nimoy wasn’t that important or big a subject for CBS (which owns Star Trek, not Paramount) to make a documentary about him?

  3. Nimoy’s family might not just happen to have 600 grand lying around. Also, while CBS may very well be interested, it would likely take months of fiddle-farting and thumb-sitting to actually decide to do it, much less fund it, and that would put it past the anniversary.
