This Documentary About the Late Leonard Nimoy's STAR TREK Legacy Needs Your Help!

Few performances have been burned more indelibly into our pop cultural consciousness than Leonard Nimoy's legendary inhabiting of Star Trek's half-human, half-Vulcan Starfleet space officer Spock.

In honor of Nimoy, who passed away this past February at the age of 83, Adam Nimoy — the late actor's son — is looking to complete For the Love of Spock, a documentary that explores the forever-enduring legacy of this richly iconic character his father proudly and profoundly played across various decades, mediums, and projects. For the Love of Spock, which took shape last year as an intended collaboration between father and son before the former's passing, looks into the making of Star Trek with a specific emphasis on the "birth and evolution" of Nimoy's fabled character. The film also features narration by Zachary Quinto, who assumed the famous role (and pointy ears) of Mr. Spock in J.J. Abrams' recent movie reboot.

The younger Nimoy has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finish the film, which has only five days to meet its $600,000 goal, 75% of which has already been raised. Whether you're a Trekkie, Trekker, or just a longtime admirer of this elegant man, donate here if you can and help this beautiful love letter from son to father take full fruition.

"I’m looking for real people. I’m looking to play three-dimensional characters who are unfolding and have more to be revealed. I want to play people who are unexpected and dangerous and real and [have] a wonderful sense of humor and are flawed and feel like a whole human being. Those are the hopes that I have." The spectacular, genre-defying Holly Hunter deserves an Oscar for her masterful supporting performance in @TheBigSickMovie. The actress spoke to @Eng_Matthew about her latest role and the people she really wants to play. Link in bio.
