The Kickstarter campaign for The Bill Nye Film — a documentary about the beloved Science Guy — has now become the most funded Kickstarter film.

The Bill Nye Film has already raised more than $800,000 as of Aug. 13, significantly more than its $650,000 goal. The previous record-holder, For The Love of Spock, (a documentary about Leonard Nimoy) on the other hand, raised about $660,000. 

Filmmakers David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg plan to follow Nye to his lectures and other events over the course of a year, and compile the footage into a “full access, exclusive” film, with which Nye seems more than eager to cooperate. Check out the Kickstarter video below:
