In July of 2004, I had finally completed STAR WRECK. I premiered it in August 2004. It was at this moment that I decided I wanted to continue with filmmaking. I had another showing of STAR WRECK in December 2004 and at this showing, I must have had about a dozen possible synopses I was considering. So I polled the viewers and they voted on the one I should pursue. Give the viewers what they want!
What the audience had selected was a direct parody of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I had called it Indiana Slim. It would follow the plot and characters of Raiders except Indiana Jones would be overweight. It was at the very end of 2004 that I began to draft characters and plot points for what would become SLIM.
