FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" (1999)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Some months ago, we did an entry about "The Battlestar Galactica You Never Got To see," an attempted revival by Richard Hatch. Here's the old entry http://www.republibot.com/content/%E2%80%9C-galactica-you-didn%E2%80%99t... Now, this trailer is amazingly hard to come by. Our own Republibot 2.0 actually helped work on the project back in the day, and even he never got to see a copy of it, so, honestly, it's rare as hen's teeth. When we did that earlier story, we had to content ourselves with a crappy video camera copy of the trailer, in which it was mostly impossible to make out what was going on. "Pat" over at the United Worlds forum, however, has uncovered an actual decent copy, however, and I felt this was post-worthy. Just click on through to see what might have been, but probably couldn't.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Star Wars: Revelations" by Shane Felux (2005)

Gather 'round, children, and ye shall hear the tale of "Star Wars: Revelations," unquestionably the most ambitious, most impressive, highest quality Star Wars Fan Film ever. Also, at three quarters of an hour, one of the longest.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "The Ten Doctors"

Republibot 3.0's picture

As we've related elsewhere, the Fan Film universe consists of Star Wars, Star Trek, and assorted debris. Of course that was intended as a joke, but definitely it's true that those two franchises tend to dominate things to an annoying extent. I mean, seriously, how hard would it be to get some surplus Night Ops BDUs and run around in the woods with toy guns playing "Stargate?" Yet no one ever does it.

Thus it gives me great pleasure to introduce something that isn't Stargate or Star Wars: "The Ten Doctors," a Doctor(s) Who adventure.

REPUBLIBOT 3.0:
Good morning, everyone. Today on Republibot, we've got Rick Kelvington, master of mashups and fanedits and parodies supreme. We recently featured him on Fan Film Friday (Here: http://www.republibot.com/content/fan-film-friday-trek-through-time-dan-... ) and he's been kind enough - or at least undiscerning enough - to hang out with us today.

Rick, thank you for taking time out to speak with us!

RICK KELVINGTON:
You are certainly welcome, I enjoy your site, and this is a great fun to interact with you.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Star Wreck: In The Pirkinning"

Republibot 3.0's picture

Ok, let's start the new year off right, shall we? As regular readers of this site will recall, I've long bemoaned the fact that there are no Babylon 5 Fan Films. I can't quite understand why, since it's such a ripe territory to mine, and there's no end of dangling threads from the various failed spinoffs. Alas, none. Well, actually, there *is* one partial exception, and that is the deservedly famous "Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning," a high quality feature-length comedy fan film released in 2005.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Trek Through Time" by Kelvington

Happy New Year, and welcome to our first quandry of the new decade: Is this a fan film or just a mashup. Well, obviously it's a mashup, but does that mean it isn't a fanfilm? To be honest, I'm not sure. Granted, there's no original footage here, no sets built or rendered, no fat guys from Minot, North Dakota pretending to be Commander Koening, or what have you, but it still kinda' feels like a fan film, it's got that air about it, even if it doesn't quite fit the bill.

Happy New Year, and Thank You!

Happy New Year, and a great big thank you to everyone who’s contributed to making this website a success. We initially went online with tests and some minor content in late December of 2008, but we really consider today to be our first anniversary, if we may be disingenuously allowed to commemorate the occasion the training wheels came off, and not the actual day we got the bike.

HELP: Send one of 'us' to Hollyweird!!!

sysadmin 2.0's picture

Bryan Starr, son of Dr. Charlie Starr (the author of our weekly Science Fiction University column) has been accepted to film school in Hollywood. This is excellent news, as someone who believes the way he does and has the background that he has almost NEVER achieves entry to an actual accredited film program.

Here's the rub. We pay Dr. Starr next to nothing. Actually, it is nothing. We pay him in attention. Bryan needs money to be able to actually attend school... so...

Well, we're asking you to donate money to send Bryan to film school. It's a cause that we believe in very strongly: start DOING something to change our culture rather than sit around and whine about it.

Stop whining and help Bryan Starr DO something important. Click here to find out more!
