I got some of their Q&A questions from their April 18th showing and put them up on YouTube if anyone's interested.

Topics covered include, making the plaster cast (for Belloq's exploding head at the end) that cost Zala his eyebrows and almost his eyelids, the burning bar scene (filmed in one of their basements) that had one of their mothers putting a temporary kibosh on the movie, the creation of several different boulders until they found the right way to do it...

If you want to find out more about the world of fan films, and what people are up to today, you might want to check out my fan film blog, http://www.fancinematoday.com. Also, for what it's worth, I wrote the first book about fan films, Homemade Hollywood: Fans Behind The Camera, which is coming out this summer--it has a big ol' chapter about the Raiders: The Adaptation guys, as well as in-depth info on many of the additional films you mentioned, such as Pink Five, Troops, Star Trek: Phase II, Batman: Dead End and others.
