Adam Nimoy, the son of the late, great Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy, has successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to produce a new documentary about his father. “For the Love of Spock” brought in $662, 640 from 9, 439 backers.

Crowdfunding is not just for high tech projects anymore. People crowdfund for just about everything these days. There is even a campaign to raise the money to help Greece pay off its debt. But that one might be just a joke.

But sometimes crowdfunding is done out of desperation. That was the case here as Adam Nimoy could not get a studio to back the project. This seems hard to believe since it is not that expensive and all sorts of TV channels and services like Netflix are producing their own original programming and movies these days.

Adam Nimoy posted the following statement in gratitude to all of the people who donated money: “To all the supporters who made this campaign such a success, I just want to say thank you so much for helping me meet (and even surpass!) the funding goals. Your contributions have helped pave the way to make this documentary about Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock a reality.”

The film project actually began before Nimoy died in February.
