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.

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.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Kelvington Tells Us How'd He Do Dat. How Did He Do Dat? How He Did Dat? Whatever. It's interesting.

Welcome to Fan Film Fridays, the weekly feature that is not a weakly feature, in which we not only showcase Fan Films and interview the Fan Filmmakers themselves, but we also try to give a sense of what goes into making them. A couple weeks back, we showcased Kelvington's Trek through Time fan film (Here: http://www.republibot.com/content/fan-film-friday-trek-through-time-kelv... ) and after that, he consented - perhaps unwisely, but certainly graciously - to be interviewed by the tawdry likes of us (Here: http://www.republibot.com/content/fan-film-friday-we-interview-kelvington )

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: "Trek Through Time" by Kelvington

Republibot 3.0's picture

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.
