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!

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 34.  The week Rob and Dave are talking about the fan film Mario Warfare by Beat Down Boogie.  Mario Warfare is a Super Mario Brothers fan film and is a special tie in show with the Super Movie Bros Movie Cocktail episode also releasing today where we talk about the Super Mario Brother movie starring Bob Hoskins, oh and today March 10 just happens to also be MARIO DAY!

 

If you grew up in the nineties or two thousands then you probably grew up playing some sort of Super Mario Brothers game.  From Mario Brothers on the old NES to Mario Kart on the Nintendo 64, Mario was everywhere. And let's be honest, who doesn’t love those brother plumbers!  On Movie Cocktail Dave, Marc, Jay and Rob go into a lot of detail about the Super Mario Brothers movie, but on this show we dive deep into the fan film.

 

Mario Warfare originally started as a web series by Beat Down Boogie but it has now been recut and release as a single film.  Created written and directed by Michah Moore, and staring Matthew Sumner as Mario, Jarod Kearney as Luigi and Alena Koch as Peach, this recut film is over a hour long and was published in December 2015.  Since then it has already been viewed over 11 million times!

Show 33 - I am a Weapon.

Show 33 - I am a Weapon.

 

It’s time again for another Fan Film Boyz show, and this time Rob and Dave discuss the fan film ‘Weapon X’ by Tilted Panda.  This film is of course about the Marvel comic character Weapon X, more commonly known as Logan or Wolverine. As you would expect from a film about Wolverine blood will flow and the animal inside him does not like to play nice!

 

This is a quick four minute fan film, however, there is a lot to talk about and breakdown (which we will do in detail).  Dave the FFB resident comic expert will go over more background of Wolverine and schools Robert on what comics are best to read.  Aaron Toft is Weapon X, and he is also the stunt choreographer for the film.  Aaron had sent the FFB an email about this film a few months ago (sorry Aaron for not replying sooner) explaining how and why the film was made and we also go over this in the show.  Not only does the film have a lot of action, it also tells a very interesting story with the use of narration, as if you are in Wolverines head hearing what he is thinking, and this is something different from other fan films.

 

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 make sure you sharpen your claws as the Fan Film Boyz talk about Weapon X.

Show 32 - Talking Film Festivals with Eric Vollweiler

 

Film festivals are growing and popping up all across the United States and internationally, some are huge and well known, some are small and obscure, all of them have a goa; to help filmmakers get noticed.  On Show 32 Fan Film Boy Rob has the pleasure of talking with Eric Vollweiler who is a Producer and Marketer of many film festivals in the US including the Garden State Film Festival in New Jersey, the Silicon Beach Film Festival in Florida and the Artemis Women in Action Film Festival in California.  We talk about festivals in general, how they are run, how they are set up and what is involved in making a successful film festival.

 

Rob and Eric do not talk specifically about fan films, however, a lot of fan film makers are also or move into indie films and getting their films into festivals can really increase audience size and possibly even lead to a distribution deal.  With the increase of festivals, and the increase of indie films and filmmakers things are only going to get better.

 

So get your popcorn warmed, sit back in your favorite chair and relax as we talk about film festivals with Eric Vollweiler.

Show 31 - Blackest What?

Show 31 - Darkest What?

 

Welcome to Show 31 - Darkest What?  On this show Fan Film Boy Rob and Super Movie Bros Dave discuss Dave’s choice of film ‘Green Lantern: Darkest Night fan film’ by Little Demon Films.  Dave is the Fan Film Boyz resident comic specialist and really shows his expertise on this show as we go into great depth about the Green Lantern character, his background and of course the original Darkest Night storyline.  This film is not one of the better fan films that we have discussed and Rob and Dave really go into depth with discussing why it has its fault.

 

The Green Lantern is a DC Comics character and  is not just one person which is not something that FFB Rob knew, it is in fact a series of superheros that fight evil with the aid of a ring that gives them their powers. The film also attempts to bring in the other rings that all have powers, some for good, some evil and these are called the Green Lantern Corp.

 

So slip on your ring, feel the power and join us as well discuss the ’Green Lantern: Darkest Night fan film.

Show 28 -John Hughes and Star Wars?

 

Welcome to the Fan Film Boyz Podcast Show 28 - John Hughes and Star Wars? On this show Rob and Dave are again joined by Jay of the Super Movie Bros after recording the latest Movie Cocktail episode on 'Weird Science'. This show we tie in the Fan Film Boyz and Movie Cocktail again and we discuss the fan film Hughes the Force that was written, produced, and directed by J.C Reifenberg.

 

Hughes the Force was first released in May 2012 and is about two high school teens that are tortured by jocks and of course rejected by girls, when they are invited to a huge end of year party it comes with a catch, they have to bring a hot girl to get entry. Hughes the Force is a mesh of several different films, most noticeably Weird Science and Star Wars, with a sprinkling of Indiana Jones and Back to the Future references thrown in. We discuss this on the show including as well as the the differences between an omage vs a fan film, and whether have well known actors/actresses in a fan film gives it more street cred (spoiler alert there are some well known people in Hughes the Force).

 

So grab your lightabers and blasters, make sure that your Slave Leia is close by and join us as we discuss Hughes the Force!
