Show 45 - Sing me a Sirens Song!

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 45 - Sing me a Sirens Song!  On this show Rob and Dave talk about the amazing motion comic ‘Siren of Dathomir’ by artist Joe Hogan.  This unofficial motion comic follows the investigation by ARC Trooper Captain Fordo on the planet of Dathomir.  Several Clone Troopers have already gone missing, and the Republic has no idea why, but there's a strange sound disturbance that might just be the explanation.  Siren of Dathomir is over nine minutes long and has over 230 thousand views on YouTube since it was first published on July 6, 2012.

 

Rob has been following and been a huge fanboy of Joe Hogan’s art for a long time, and even commissioned him to create an original Star Wars art piece featuring Obi Wan and his son (Rob’s son that is) walking through the deserts of Tatooine.  Rob and Dave talk in depth about this fan film, Dave also offers his follow up apology for some of his comments on our previous show about Hunt for Gollum. In this weeks Comic Corner Dave and Rob follow up and discuss Rob’s homework the X-Box game Mass Effect.

 

So strap on your ARC Trooper armor, and make sure that you pack your earplugs to block out the Sirens song as Rob and Dave discuss Joe Hogan’s Siren of Dathomir.

Show 44 - My Precious!

Show 44 - My Precious!

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 44 - My Precious!  On this Show Rob and Dave talk about the Lord of the Rings fan film Hunt for Gollum.  This is the first time that the Fan Film Boyz have discussed a Lord of the Rings fan film and there is a lot to talk about!

 

Hunt for Gollum is a 39 minute fan film with over 13 million views on YouTube, and over 44 thousand likes (that’s just over 3% of views are likes).  It was published by Independent Online Cinema on May 8, 2009. The film is actually a prequel to the LotR and is about Aragorn and Gandalf’s long search for the mysterious Gollum.  The film was directed by filmmaker Chris Bouchard and was shot almost entirely in England with a large team, and post production was done almost entirely online with a equally as large team.  Bouchard has actually moved into the mainstream and is co-director of a new film ‘The Little Mermaid’ which is set for a August 2018 release on Netflix.

 

Hunt for Gollum is a spectacular fan film that was very well written, acted and filmed yet it seems to be let down by small issues that Rob and Dave go over in this show.

 

So make sure you remember to pack your friendly Hobbit companion, sit back and listen as Rob and Dave discuss Hunt for Gollum

Show 43 - This is just a Prelude!

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 43 - This is just a Prelude!  On this Show Rob is joined by a very special guest co-host Melissa from the ‘Brook Reading Podcast’.  Melissa is not a fan film maker but a fellow New Jersey Podcaster who loves Star Trek so who better to chat with when talking about the mega Star Trek fan fan ‘Prelude to Axanar’, the fan film that almost ended all Star Trek fan films!

 

Axanar is an independent production that set out to prove that anyone can make a quality film on a budget and that the backing of a large studio is not always needed.  One of the most expensive fan films that we have talked about to date, Axanar had a budget of approximately $80,000 (most of which came from a VERY successful Kickstarter campaign) as well as using some known actors and actresses.

 

Alec Peters creator of Axanar is one of those people that you either love or hate, and this film has its own controversy surrounding it from its budget, to the Lawsuit between CBS and Paramount Vs Axanar that lead to the creation of the first ever fan film rules and regulations that must be followed in order to create a Star Trek fan film and Rob and Melissa go deep into this controversy!

 

On the ‘The Brook Reading Podcast’ Melissa reads and discusses various books, all while sitting next to a brook, hence the name.  Make sure that you follow her on Twitter and Subscribe to her Podcast where ever you listen to your podcasts.

 

SO get ready for Scottie to beam you up as Rob and Melissa talk about the Star Trek fan film ‘Prelude to Axanar’!

Show 42 - Check out the Effects, they are Massive!

 

Welcome to the Fasn Film Boyz Podcast Show 42 - Check out the Effects, they are Massive!  On this Show Rob and Dave sit down to discuss the fan film Mass Effect: Red Sand. This is a prequel fan film to the hugely successful video game series Mass Effect developed by BioWare and originally released in November, 2007.  IN the game which is a action role-playing, third-person shooter you play as Commander Shepard whose has been given the rather large and seemingly impossible mission of saving the galaxy. In this Show’s ‘Comic Corner’ Dave will go into more detail about the game including its lore because he is a BIG Mass Effect fan.

 

Red Sand has over 203 thousand views on YouTube with over 4.8 thousand likes (Thats 2.36% if you do the math, wait I did it for you!), and was released on November 25, 2013 by Machinima.  As already stated the fan film is a prequel to the game being set 35 years before the time of Commander Shepard. The film tells the story of the discovery of ancient ruins on Mars. These ruins would provide a huge advancement in human technology as well as providing a powerful, but dangerous power source known as Element Zero that some choose to use as a drug to enhance their abilities.  A really cool aspect of this fan film is that the actor who plays Colonel Jon Grissom, Mark Meer is actually the voice actor who provided the voice of Commander Shepard in the games!

 

So sit back and load yourself up on some Element Zero if you have any as Rob and Dave discuss the fan film Mass Effect: Red Sand.

Show 41 - I am He-Man!

Show 41 - I am He-Man!

 

Welcome everyone to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 41 - I am He-Man!  On this show Rob and Dave discuss the Masters of the Universe fan film Fall of Grayskull.  This is our monthly tie in show with the Super Movie Bros Movie Cocktail episode that was also released this past weekend on the movie Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren.  This Movie Cocktail was very fun to record because we all have different memories of this movie from our childhood, a lot of which probably made us look at this fan film differently.

 

Fall of Grayskull is a 36 minute fan film written and directed by Daniel Benedict, and stars wrestler Brian Cage as He-Man, Mercedez Varble as Teela, and Kevin Clark as Skeletor.  It already has over four hundred and thirty eight thousand views on YouTube and was only released in January 2016. Rob and Dave go into a lot of detail about this fan film, what we enjoyed, and also what we didn’t like (and spoiler, this wasn’t on of our favorite fan films to discuss!)

 

So sit back on your own throne, raise your swords and shout with us ‘I have the Power! And listen as Rob and Dave discuss Fall of Grayskull.

Show 40 - He who wears the Red Hood!

 

Welcome everybody to the Fan Film Boyz Show 40 - He who wears the Red Hood!  On this show Rob and Dave talk and discuss the RobotUnderdog2 fan film ‘Red Hood IT’.  This fan film is as the title states about the Red Hood (the alias of the former Robin, Jason Todd) and the clown that never dies Pennywise.  This fan film is just over sixteen minutes long and packs a lot of action (but unfortunately very little story) into its run time.

 

If you are a Batman fan, then you already know that the Red Hood is as we already stated the former Robin Jason Todd who was killed by The Joker and somehow came back to light.  In this film he meets Stephen King’s Pennywise the Clown from the book IT and there are plenty of balloons to go around.

 

On this show Robert and Dave also start a new section of the podcast called Comic Corner where they discuss and talk about the homework that Dave has given Robert to read, this time we discuss the comics ‘Under the Red Hood’, ‘Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth’, and ‘Joker’ by Brian Azzarello.   

 

So make sure you are prepared to get wet because they all float down here, and listen as the Fan Film Boyz discuss ‘Red Hood IT’.

Show 39 - Born a Hellraiser!

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 39 - Born a Hellraiser!  On this show Rob, Dave and Marc discuss the Hellraiser fan film ‘No More Souls’ by Vicious Yellow Jacket.  So why a Hellraiser fan film you ask? Well this is our regular tie-in show with the Super Movie Bros Movie Cocktail Podcast (stay with me), if you have listened to the last Movie Cocktail you know we discussed Dave’s pick of Event Horizon, now we could not find any Event Horizon fan films SO Dave suggested a Hellraiser fan film because Clive Barker is the creator of the Hellraiser series and he was also a consultant on Event Horizon, so with the six degrees rule in play it all makes sense now right!

 

Hellraiser No More Souls is one of the few fan films that is has a tie to the original series, it is produced by the Make-up and FX team from the original series and at just over six minutes it is a very interesting fan film.  FFB Rob has never seen any of the Hellraiser movies so Dave and Marc take a lot of the lead in this review and have a lot of interesting things to share.

 

So get your sewing kits ready (that’s a Pinhead joke) and sit back as Rob, Dave and Marc talk about Hellraiser, No More Souls.

Amanda, Kailee and Rob talk about fan films, what it takes to make and complete them and most importantly, why fan films?  Apple Juice Productions are also in the final days trying to raise money to help cover the costs of creating the Ultimate Lily and James wedding!  Check out the page at https://www.applejuicepro.com/wedding.html and consider helping out, the Fan Film Boyz already did!

Show 37 - It’s your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man!

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 37.  On this show we go back to our usual review show and Rob and Dave and guest host Marc Dickerson talk about ‘Marvel Knights: Spider-Man’.  A few weeks ago we put up a March Madness style poll on Twitter and asked out listeners and followers what type of fan film that they wanted us to review.  The first poll was between Star Wars/Star Trek, Marvel/DC, Harry Potter/Video Games, and Other. With 33% each of the total 49 votes it was a tie between Star Wars/Star Trek and Marvel/DC.  Pol 2 narrowed down to these four got 47 total votes and with 34% of the Votes Marvel was the winner. Finally Poll 3 was between four Marvel Fan Films, Young Avengers, Marvel Knights, Domino and Avengers.  With 30% of the 43 total votes Marvel Knights was the choice.

 

Marvel Knights: Spider-Man by madeLEGITmedia was released on YouTube in 2016 after a successful Kickstarter campaign.  It was originally released as five separate episodes, and was then edited together as a full length film and released on Aug 15, 2016.  Now think of every Spider-Man character and villain from the comics and movies and they are in this film at some point. This very ambitious film is well shot, but falls short when it comes to acting.  As mentioned on this show we are joined by Marc Dickerson who is a co-host of Movie Cocktail and is a filmmaker and he offers some great insights to this film

 

On this show we also share a promo from a new podcast tha Rob has been listening to called ‘The Brook Reading Podcast’, and just a reminder the Fan Film Boyz are Promo Partners with Geekfest Film Festivals the first and largest travelling Comic Con Film Festival.  They exhibit the best in indie filmmakers from science fiction, fantasy, horror, action and of course fan films! Check out the upcoming Convention and film lineup at www.geekfestla.com and follow them on Twitter @Geekfilmfests

 

So get your web-slingers at the ready and listen as the Fan Film Boyz talk about the fan film Marvel Knights: Spider-Man..

Show 36 - Stranger Things (Interview with Brittany Joyner)

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 35.  On this show FFB Rob continues his special on the 2018 Fanfilm Awards by talking with the AMAZING Brittany Joyner creator of the fan film ‘Stranger Things: The Story of Henry and Dale’ as well as the fan film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Battle of Diagon Alley’ that we reviewed back on Show 13.

 

‘Stranger Things: The Story of Henry and Dale’ is just over six minutes and tells the story of two obscure characters that were briefly mentioned in the Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’.  This film is really well done and a lot of effort went into the story as well as time spent to make the production quality top shelf. Rob and Brittany talk about this film, as well as her other films, the fan film awards and film making in general.

 

On this show we also share a promo from a new podcast tha Rob has been listening to called ‘The Brook Reading Podcast’, and just a reminder the Fan Film Boyz are Promo Partners with Geekfest Film Festivals the first and largest travelling Comic Con Film Festival.  They exhibit the best in indie filmmakers from science fiction, fantasy, horror, action and of course fan films! Check out the upcoming Convention and film lineup at www.geekfestla.com and follow them on Twitter @Geekfilmfests

 

So sit back and put on a helmet and breathing mask as we take a trip to the Upside Down place as we talk Stranger Things with Brittany Joyner.
