Kickstart ‘Full Metal Jacket Diary’ App

If you ever wanted a front row seat of a how movies are made, it might soon be at your finder tips.

Actor Matthew Modine showed up on the set of Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnam War masterpiece Full Metal Jacket, in which he starred as Private Joker, armed with his weapon, his gun and his Rollei. Matthew’s behind-the-scenes account of the making of the motion picture and photographs appeared his book ‘Full Metal Jacket Diary’. It’s a wonderfully revealing look inside the movie making process. If you’ve ever been curious about what it was like to work with Stanley Kubrick, ‘Full Metal Jacket Diary’ lifts the curtains and takes you inside.

Producer Adam Rackoff is looking for Kickstarter funding to complete a ‘Full Metal Jacket Diary’ iPad App loaded with additional photographs and new audio interviews. ‘Full Metal Jacket Diary’ has a cherished spot in my library of photography book, I’m eager to see how the additional content enhances the experience.

In a recent interview, Modine pointed out that Stanley Kubrick was always quick to embrace new technology. I think he’d love this!
