Anthony and Claire Bueno have been working on the first Ghostbusters documentary, Cleanin’ Up The Town during the last 8 years! In a year where Ghostbusters (2016) will be premiering in theaters globally Bueno Productions is nearing completion on a long awaited Ghostbusters documentary!
In a way to give “Cleanin'” a well deserved release and to retain ownership they’ve launched a Kickstarter that as of this post has 129 backers and has raised $17,669 USD.
Eight years ago brother and sister team Anthony and Claire Bueno commenced production on the retrospective documentary CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters. Their intention to tell the definitive story of how these much loved films were made, the visual effect techniques used and to clear up any mystery of how these films came to fruition.
Having gathered OVER 70 INTERVIEWS (full list on IMDb) including actors Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Director Ivan Reitman, producers Joe Medjuck and Michael C. Gross, visual effects crew Richard Edlund, John Bruno, Dennis Muren, Steve Johnson, Randall William Cook, Howie Weed and Ned Gorman. Ray Parker Jr., Randy Edelman and editor Sheldon Kahn, the magnitude of the project has grown proving too much for only two people to make.
We feel, to enable us to complete the feature length documentaries about both Ghostbustersand Ghostbusters II; do justice to the people who have graciously given their time, shared their skills and stories and to deliver to the fans the kind of original, detailed documentary that they not only have longed for but honours the loyalty they deserve; we really do need to take one more trip to the US to complete filming and enlist additional team members “with the tools and the talent” that we simply don’t have to make this a truly polished documentary that audiences will love.
The financial goal of Bueno Productions is to raise a total of $58,340. “Only another $40,671 to go.” 😉 We’re really fortunate we’ll have two Ghostbusters documentary in the coming year.
