I had just finished posting to Beezer's Wolverine thread a few clips from Superhero Beatdown (or something like that) when the subject comes to mind yet again.


Consider for the low end of my comparative H-weird scale, I cite the 80's epic failure of Megaforce or Metalstorm 3D: The Adventures of Jared Syn as rock bottom zero and the mark to beat.
What say you good people?
What fan-made film have you seen which you feel can beat the examples cited?
Here are a few of mine:

I've posted this one to two threads that I can think of off the top of my head but it's really that good...

These next two are truely breathtaking and I am still waiting for them to finish number three...

And the "saga" continues...

I think with fan-made material getting this good, Hollywierd will be obsolete in a few decades.
What say you?

When does a film become a fan made film?
I assume many directors are fans of something, like say a director making a batman film that is a Batman fan.

These look like people have got pretty decent budgets and professionals working on them.

I define fan-made as not produced by the traditional movie studios on a ridiculously low budget by people with no real entertainment industry experience.
By that scale Clerk's would count were it not for the Weinstein label.
The first one i will admit had Nina Bergman and the director has worked in H-wood before.
Not so of the second two.
They were just a bunch of Star Wars fans...some of them from the 501st.

New technology has spawned a new breed of indy filmmakers. I'm honored and proud to be in that community.
I do have mainstream experience being that I'm a SAG/AFTRA actor and work in Hollywood productions, also as crew affiliated with IATSE. But my heart and soul is in the New Media world of moving images.
But Hollywood will always be viable for the big budget blockbusters.

I'm Currently working on this one's the trailer....obviously we're western fans.

Very nice sir!
When I refer to a new breed of filmmakers, you (or someone just like you) are who I am referring to.
Able to put out quality entertainment without H-wood getting it's grubby paws on the product.
Yes, it's mostly movie studio execs making the worst decisions but the incessant tsunami of reboots, remakes and sequels is just destroying every last ounce of originality left in tinsel town.
they make unwatchable crap with the same small group of celebrity insiders over and over and over again.
Once more...wonderful work and all for under $1K?
Simply remarkable.

Merry Wedensday,

Let's take a lil' stroll down memory lane with every fanboy's first true videogame crush.
Lara Croft...

(The hostages really chewed up the scenery but it's a sweet short)

This next entry is questionable but I think it deserves mention if you'll allow me to explain.
The film makes the term low budget seem epic but it's the subject matter that makes this one an honerable mention.
This was done by a bunch of people who loved D&D and wanted to make a movie.
The effects are cheesy.
The actors really chew the scenery.
The plot is kinda absent.
Why would anyone watch it?
First a warning...if you've never played D&D, you probably won't get a lot of the inside humor and should avoid this post.
That said, the core cast interacts pretty tight knit as only a bunch of friends could.
The "one-liners" are actually pretty good once the film gets going.
Anyone who has ever played this RPG (or even others) will not be able to help but chuckle at some of the gamer oriented antics that ring so true of actual players.
A must for D&D fans...

-Peace on Earth-

This short fan made film for starwars is better than any of the three most recent movies.

That was incredible...thank you for posting it.
Sent that link to a few people already.
A fantastic example.

It's about time for another fine fan-made film...let's say...HALO?


posted on Dec, 31 2013 @ 04:17 PM

I'm feeling the need to post another.
Now I will be the first to agree that the number of high profile Trek celebs should immediately disqualify this next submission.
The Crew that did all the shooting was only partially noob.
The budget was almost non-existant.
Technically this is still a H-wierd product but it deserved a tip of the hat just for having Chase Masterson play a scantly clad Orion...

Happy New Year,

Next up comes a clip based on the videogame Watch Dogs.
It starts a bit slow but picks up as the plot unfolds.
Just watching this made me curious about the game it was based on.
What say you?

That's a pretty sweet clip sir...thank you for posting it!
Gonna be difficult to top that one since I already posted Croft and HALO3 but I'll give it a try.


My reply would be something like this...

Balls in your court.

I have time for one more so how about a tale from the Cursed Earth?

Anyone hear about the Legend of Zelda fan made movie? When i mean fan, i mean FAN made film. The movie (made back in 2009ish i think) is based around the Legend of Zelda ocarina of time, called The Hero of time. Its about an hour and fifty mins total. Before it was release Nintendo had it pulled and it never got released. If your eager enough to watch it you might still be able to find a copy on the interwebz somewhere.

If you aint a Legend of Zelda fan you probably wouldnt be much into it, its not that bad of a movie but if you feel you must watch it please do, if you find the copy on the internet that is. A fan-made film made by fans, for fans.
