Iron Sky is a movie under development which imagines that Nazis fled to the dark side of the moon after the collapse of the Third Reich. Now they're ready to return and conquer the Earth.
Producers scraped up enough money to create teasers for their idea and then used those teasers to drum up investor support. This daring plan was successful, and they were able to attract funding for a full-length movie:
The project has a budget of $8.5 million, which is chump change by Hollywood standards, and the producers have been desperately trying to raise funds.
Well, it worked. Through a combination of investors and fan donations, Iron Sky has 90% of its budget squared away, its casting is near complete, and filming is set to begin in Germany and Australia later this year.
