Forward to the Past (I & II)

Forward to the Past

Written and Directed by Matt Tory
Released April 2009 

A classic that started it all.
Tasked with covering Ancient Rome for a Government class project, we decided to go the ambitious route and do it via a Back to the Future spoof.  What began as a simple school project eventually spawned numerous fans and led to us making a sequel later that year.

When one of his teachers asks him to help out with a science experiment, Marty McFlurry doesn’t think anything of it. But when Marty learns that his teacher, Doc, has created a time machine, it leads to some wacky circumstances that land Marty in Ancient Rome.
Starring Zack Slort, Jonathan Holmes, Matt Tory, Matt Silver, Alana Feliciano, Andrew Manica, Nick Valdez, and Aaron McClanahan.
Whether this movie has aged well is up to you, but it still makes us laugh and it’s fun to see where the time-traveling adventures of Marty McFlurry began. We have a lot of great memories as a bunch of high school kids making this thing. Enjoy the film, and hopefully have a laugh!

Forward to the Past, Part Two

Written and Directed by Matt Tory
Released November 2009

The sequel to Forward to the Past that became our first ever feature-length film.
After a wildly successful  response from our class project, we decided to spend the summer of 2009 making as great and funny of a film as we could. Forward to the Past, Part Two was the biggest, most ambitious project we’d ever done.

After coming back from ancient Rome, Marty decides he’s going to leave the time-traveling to Doc, and go on with his life. But when Doc goes into the future and witnesses something that only Marty McFlurry can stop, the two head to the time machine and aim for the future. Due to a malfunction, though, Marty and Doc instead find themselves in the past — and on a wild journey as the time machine begins jumping through the time/space continuum…
Starring Zack Slort, Matt Tory, Jonathan Holmes, Matt Silver, Jacob Slort, Andrew Manica, Nick Valdez, Alana Feliciano, Drew Black, Robert Oden, Ezra Tacosa, Michael Huynh, Ashley Waters, Tanner Skelton, and Aaron McClanahan.
The summer after our graduation was a crazy season of filming, laughing, and diving deep into making a full-length movie. For me, it was a time I’ll never forget as I personally credit the experience of making Forward to the Past, Part Two as the catalyst for my decision to spend my life making movies. We hope you enjoy the film, and that it gives you a few laughs!
