My wife and I are SO geeking out over this whole Hill Valley project… Wonder what the future holds for such ideas. #rhetorical

It’s difficult to describe. It’s like a filmstrip version of the 1985 film “Back to the Future,” or maybe more like a script reading. “The Hill Valley Project” has created a Twitter account and avatar for each and every character in the movie, compiled them in a Twitter list, and is tweeting the entire movie, beginning to end, in real time.

Here’s a partial list of the “actors”:
