FAN FILM FRIDAY: Roundup: Fan Trailers

Church's picture

Trailers are a popular format for fan films. They allow a fan to show the broad strokes of an idea in a short and accessable form, without the hassle of creating a full version. Recuts, which are made primarily from existing footage, allow all this to be done by one (very dedicated) fan entirely on his or her computer. Join me after the jump for three impressive examples of this genre.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Roundup: K.I.S.S.

One of the problems that fan film producers get themselves into is overreaching themselves. After all, the things they are fans of tend to have much higher budgets. Conversely, the most successful films are the ones that whittle down those big universes to a manageable size. Here are three very short films that manage to keep it simple.

Our old buddy Kelvington is a master of the mashup, a phenomenon of the fan-edit, and he's been a great friend to our site, as well (And he did the album cover art for my brother's band recently as well). Some of you may recall that we interviewed him a while back
( http://www.republibot.com/content/fan-film-friday-we-interview-kelvington ) and, as always, his projects are interesting and fun to behold.

Two years ago he co-founded Zombie Orpheus Entertainment (ZOE,) which produced JourneyQuest. He's also worked on larger budget productions, serving as an assistant director on The Dark Horse and Battle in Seattle.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Interview with Jake Churosh of "270 Days in the Bunker"

Church's picture

Just before I took over the Fan Film beat here, R3 posted an invitation for readers: Tell Us About Your Failures. It's an interesting subject, since so many projects fail for a variety of reasons.

In the comments, our own Jake Was Here posted a link to his student film 270 Days in the Bunker. However, I'd rate it a success. Take a look, and then join me after the jump for an interview with Jake.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Interview with Rob Hampton of 70's Kids

Rob Hampton is a director and editor in LA, but thirty-odd years ago he was just a kid in Massachusetts with a Super 8 camera. Recently, he's been going over his earlier work, adding some modern enhancements (like sound,) and posting them on YouTube.

Join us after the jump for the story of this project, three decades in the making!
