In a complete interview that Emshwiller plans to release as a movie called "Later That Same Life," a present-day Emshwiller answers questions that he recorded himself asking years ago in 1977. 

"I knew I was going to be super famous, so I interviewed my older self, recording tons of video, asking, answering and responding," Emshwiller said. "I'm super excited that I'm going to finish a project I started 38 years ago," he added

The bearded teenager asks the balding professional if he's married, if he's rich and what has happened with his family over the past few decades. 

The interview between the two is touching and almost seamless. Some have even called the recording "a time-travel talk show.

Emshwiller's project is being funded online.
