Our Story

Indiana Jones and the Legend of Bimini marks the fifth fan film and the second Indiana Jones film that we have worked on. The first Indiana Jones fan film, “Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Apalachee”, has been very well received. Now we want to raise the bar for our next film. Our team consists of industry professionals working together to make a fan film that will exceed expectations for a low budget film. The scope of our experience extends among video production, directing, producing, art direction, and acting. And that’s just to name a few. It is our goal to truly make a film that will not only entertain but also inspire.

The Impact

Over the last decade, filmmakers all over the world have been setting the bar with the films that they created on a low budget. This has made the Hollywood film industry take notice and improve the films that they are producing to the public. Star Wars and Star Trek genres make up the majority of the fan films currently circulating over the internet. Indiana Jones is the genre that is done the least. Not because there are no fans, but, because there are few actors that can pull of the character successfully. We have that actor and many more that will make this film something to remember.

We hope that we can inspire other filmmakers to take notice and challenge themselves the way we intend to with this film. We hope that the talents of the cast and crew will get noticed so that they can benefit for the time that they will put in for this film.

What We Need and What You Get

Since this is a fan film that no profit can be made, everyone involved is giving their time for no pay. What we need funds for is equipment rental, production insurance, some costumes and props, as well as other expenses for locations, cast, and crew. We have some costumes and props left from the first Indiana Jones fan film that we produced but others will be needed.

We live in a community in Upstate New York that is very welcoming to independent filmmakers. A lot of the venues available for shooting are offering free of charge. Also, a lot of the elements for the film are accomplished either low or free of charge. But we still need help. If we don’t get the funding we need, it may be difficult to complete the film. However, the show must go on and we will do what must be done. But you can help us raise the bar in production value.

Anyone who contributes to the film will receive proper credit in the film as well as other perks depending on the amount of the contribution. So whether you’re an Indiana Jones fan or a movie fan, please help us to not only get the job done but done well!

Other Ways You Can Help

We need as much funding as possible so even if we reach our goal, every dollar counts and will still be allocated to various aspects of the film. But your contributions don’t have to end there. Tell your friends, family, and as many Indiana Jones fans as you can and let them know that we will not let them down and bring a film that will not disappoint! If you live in the Buffalo or Rochester, New York area and would like to be a part of the film please contact us at crew@tatumpictures.com!
