Last week I featured the earliest fan film I had come across. Naturally, it took only a few hours for our own SheldonCooper to point out that there was a still earlier one, Jr. Star Trek.
From the youtube description: Back in 1969 ten-year-old Peter ("Stoney") Emshwiller created his own version of a Star Trek episode using his dad's 16mm camera. The, um, fabulous special effects were created by scratching on the film with a knife and coloring each frame with magic markers. The movie won WNET's "Young People's Filmmaking Contest," was shown on national television, and, all these years later, still is a favorite at Star Trek Conventions.
Join us after the jump to see this award-winning film.
