A Laguna Niguel marketing company is helping to spread the word about a Kickstarter campaign for a documentary on the plight to save the DeLorean "time machine" from the Back to the Future movies.

Lyndsay Johnson, owner of Bound-by Marketing, is representing filmmaker Steve Concotelli, who just announced his crowd-funding campaign and released the official trailer for Out of Time: Saving the DeLorean Time Machine.

Plagued by souvenir hunters, rats, and the elements, the iconic DeLorean seemed destined for the junkyard, until it made an incredible comeback thanks to Universal Studios, a dedicated fan community and Bob Gale, co-writer and producer of the Back to the Future trilogy.

All of this is to be chronicled in Out of Time, says Concotelli, who was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access for a multi-year restoration. "The DeLorean Time Machine is the greatest, comeback story in movie prop history," he says in a release Johnson issued.

The team is seeking $25,000 to complete post production of the film they plan to premiere later this year.
