Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Documentary ('Whooligans')
An independent project by FTS Media aims to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who with a documentary meeting fans all across the globe.
Doctor Who fans are like no other, devoted to the Time Lord and his companions, but vilified for their passion. FTS wants to know why. Why Doctor Who? Why so much enthusiasm? And why is it so different from any other hobby?
Where other documentaries have lingered on the negative side of fandom, FTS want to celebrate the passion that lies within fans of Doctor Who, exploring the Whovian world and how the passion of the fans has kept the show alive. They'll explore how Doctor Who fans have incorporated their devotion into everyday life, from writing blogs and books, to those who make it their mission to collect every TARDIS Teapot, Dalek Duvet and Cyberman Clock!
It's these things that they want to explore, because without these passionate fans, Doctor Who wouldn't be back on our screens for it's 50th anniversary celebration!
To fund the project FTS Media have launched a Kickstarter project relying on donations from Doctor Who fans around the world.
The money donated to FTS Media through Kickstarter will be spent on a number of things. Mainly funds will go towards the costs of equipment hire and post production costs. It will also help support transport to meet the various fans around the world.
FTS will be interviewing Robert Shearman (writer episode 'Dalek"), Sue and Neil Perryman (Adventures with Wife in Space), Rob Hull (World Record holder for the most unique Dalek models), Rob Ritchie (creator of numerous Doctor Who animations).
