CreatorVC announces the fundraising launch of its new documentary about ‘80s sci-fi films, In Search of Tomorrow.
In Search of Tomorrow will be an extensive, nostalgic journey through ’80s sci-fi films – exploring their impact year-by-year and their relevance today – told by the iconic artists who made them and by
those who were inspired to turn their visions into reality. Pre-production is currently underway, following on the strength of CreatorVC’s successful crowdfunding campaign and release of the ‘80s horror documentary In Search of Darkness, one of the most successful indie docs in history which will receive an exclusive streaming release via Shudder later in 2020.
Helmed by In Search of Darkness director David Weiner, In Search of Tomorrow has already lined up an impressive roster of interview talent that includes Nancy Allen (RoboCop), John Badham

Joe Dante (Innerspace, Gremlins), Bill Duke (Predator), Alan Dean Foster (Star Trek, Star Wars, Aliens), Bob Gale (Back to the Future trilogy), Lance Guest (The Last Starfighter), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Peter Hyams (Outland, 2010), Sam J. Jones (Flash Gordon), Walter Koenig (Star Trek), Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek), Dennis Muren (Star Wars trilogy, ILM), Kerry O’Quinn (Starlog Magazine), Catherine Mary Stewart (The Last Starfighter), Henry Thomas (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Tim Thomerson (Trancers, Cherry 2000), Douglas Trumbull (Blade Runner, Brainstorm), Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop, Total Recall), Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek), Alex Winter (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) and Sean Young (Blade Runner, Dune).
The growing cast of talent will ultimately feature exclusive interviews with more than 50 icons, artists, experts and influencers.
Director David Weiner says:
“IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW will take viewers on a year-by-year deep dive into the many awe-inspiring worlds of ‘80s Sci-Fi movies, from the alien landscapes of distant planets to the unexpected secrets of our own terra firma to the dystopian visions of near and far future. An entertaining study of ‘80s genre filmmaking, IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW will tap into that childlike wonder that we all felt while first watching these movies, how we all felt deep inside, all the while deconstructing and recontextualizing their impact for today’s audiences.”
From CreatorVC CEO and executive producer, Robin Block:
“This is the evolution of fandom, the rising up of fans to celebrate the work that has impacted their lives. What we’re trying to do is to bring people together who have a shared interest, to bring some comfort back in a time when the world’s gone crazy. A major goal of IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW is to take people back to their childhood cinema experience and to re-examine and understand it in brand new ways. The community we are building in advance of our fundraising campaign is a place of safety, where opinions are welcomed and love of the genre is paramount.”
In Search of Tomorrow’s Kickstarter fundraising campaign will begin on April 21.
