In 1985 film director Robert Zemeckis introduced the world to a time machine built out of a DeLorean sports car in the film Back to the Future. While Back to the Future was a blockbuster success, the film itself almost never got made. It is hard to think of a world without Doc Brown and Marty McFly having adventures through time but that is the world we almost lived in. Back to the Future is a testament to the creative collaborative process. Each failure, false start, and change all aligned for the film's eventual success. One of the most popular icons to come out of the Back to the Future film series was the time machine itself. Where did this time machine come from? How does one go about creating a fictional time machine that film audiences would believe could actually travel though time? The creation of the time machine starts with the filmmakers themselves. This is the story about how director Zemeckis was able to bring to life a time machine “with some style!” With numerous interviews and research this book details the creation of all the time machines used in the film series and beyond including the 2020 musical. Learn about how the time machine started out as a time chamber, and how a marketing executive wanted Doc Brown to drive a Ford Mustang. Explore how ILM created a flying DeLorean and how in the third movie they put a DeLorean on railroad tracks. Even the time traveling "Jules Verne" train's creation is explored.
