The team behind Ghostheads definitely put a lot of their own personal time and effort into this. They really wanted to show exactly what being involved in a fandom can be all about. Knowing one of the producers from years past and his enthusiasm and passion for Ghostbusters has really shown in this documentary. Let it be known that he does not make this a self serving documentary at all, even for the amount of dedication he has to this franchise, these individuals, and this fandom. If you sit back and take this documentary for what it really is, it can show you just how anyone, from any background can get involved and create a community for themselves to foster good ideas, to help people, and let anyone be who they want to be. We are all different, and that's OK. It is communities like these that can provide us support in times we might need it the most.
