In the name of Back to the Future Day , one happy Dublin fan :) My love began at the tender age of 7 when I went to see BTTF in Dublin for my First Communion – the rest is history as they say ;)  Over the most recent years I got to meet most of the actors – most notably Michael J Fox this past summer after 30 years!

Name those BTFF characters anyone?

Super fans Darren McKenna and Balsha Raich of [Dublin-based production company] The Ligthroom wanted to create something to celebrate Back to the Future  day. With only 8 days and zero budget – their golden asset was a Delorean car at their disposal for 6 hours.

…We follow two Dublin lads with a love for the past. They come across a Delorean and end up time travelling to Dublin 1985 where they accidentally make a few changes to their local chipper. When they finally return to the present; October 21st 2015 – things seem to have changed….

I’ve been working for the past few months on making a pair of inside out jeans – and just launched a kickstarter campaign… I wonder if you could help get the ball rolling on it by giving it a little push?
