I don't know if you're aware or not, but making movies isn't easy and it's not exactly cheap. It's even harder and more expensive if your movie happens to be about a group of Nazis who secretly colonized the dark side of the moon right at the end World War II and are on the verge of mounting a full scale invasion of the Earth. You're not exactly going to pull that off convincingly with your buddies in the backyard over the course of a few weekends (though if anyone wants to put their attempts on YouTube, I would gladly watch you pretending to pilot a spaceship made out of cardboard boxes).
We all should know about Iron Sky at this point, but in case you haven't heard of it over the years, it's a Finnish film project about, as mentioned, Nazis on the dark side of the moon. It's basically been a hypothetical project for several years now, but after the YouTube views kept racking up, Blind Spot Pictures began to actively seek funding from anyone who would give it to them. Well, as Wired tells us, the Iron Sky team has raised approximately 90% of their $8.5 million budget, which is enough to get them on their way to officially casting the film before finally filming it in Australia and Germany this fall. That's great news for fans of Indie sci-fi.
