A Conversation with Chris Strompolos who played Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation, November 26, 2015
In June of 1981: Raiders of the Lost Ark was released and Indiana Jones was born. Cinematic history and the hearts of movie lovers and generations to follow were changed forever.
In June of 2014… 33 years later: The Raiders Guys completed what has been called “the greatest fan-film ever made“ – a shot-for-shot recreation of the Spielberg / Lucas classic. Welcome to our adventure!
It’s summer. 1981…and it’s hot.
You’re 10, 11 years old…and there’s nothing to do.
So what DO you do?
Maybe you get a bunch of kids together and play ball: Baseball, basketball or soccer.
It’s summer…and it’s hot…. So maybe what you do is get together with another kid and make a shot-by-shot recreation of your favorite film: Raiders of the Lost Ark.
That’s exactly what Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala did that summer…and the next…and the next…and on and on for seven years.
Then long beyond that.
