Even back before anime and manga exploded (or E X P L O D Ed, as the case may be) and became as widely available as they are today, Masaume Shirow's Ghost In The Shell and Mamoru Oshii's anime adaptation were considered to be true high points of the cyberpunk genre. It's one of the most well known franchises in the entirety of anime, producing multiple adaptations and influencing films like The Matrix.
Obviously, it's going to have a pretty dedicated fanbase, and now, a group of artists and filmmakers have gotten together to produce a live-action fan-film adaptation of the original Ghost In The Shell anime's title sequence, reproducing it shot-for-shot. Check out a video of the process behind the recreation below!
Under normal circumstances, a video on the internet that opens with a grown man sitting up in bed with another grown man wearing a full-body tiger costume would only be of interest to a very specific market. When
I haven't actually watched DragonBall Z since high school, but I'll admit that I still have a tiny soft spot for Akira Toriyama's long-running story of dudes shouting at and occasionally punching each other. As a result, I got a kick out of this fan-made "trailer" based on DBZ's Saiyan Saga, which actually loo
After years of waiting for a big studio production of ElfQuest, fans and web TV producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes took matters into their own hands by creating their own short film based on the indie comics perennial by Wendy and Richard Pini. Called ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining, the four-and-a-half minu
There are a lot of great team-up stories out there, but in his 22-minute short film The King and the Worst, director David Galan Galindo has brought us one of the most unexpected and awesome pairings of all time: Jack Kirby and Ed Wood, plucked from World War II to battle against a pair of evil sorcerers in a nightmarish dimension that looks an awful lot like someone's house. And as though that wasn't enough of a crossover
Despite the movie's considerable flaws, I really, really enjoyed Thomas Jane in his role as Frank Castle in the 2004 Punisher movie. In fact, I'd be lying if I said it was anything other than his laconic voice-overs in the accompanying video game that motivated me to read every single Punisher comic I could get my hands on and led me to becoming such a big fan of the character.
Development of a live-action studio adaptation of Y: The Last Man seems to have stalled out, but director Christian Cardona shows us how well it could work with this remarkable fan film that brings to life some crucial moments from the Vertigo comics series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. Travis Quentin Yo
Thanks to Brian Michael Bendis for tweeting the link to this most excellent fan film based on his and Sara Pichelli's Miles Morales, the young hero of Marvel's Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. Directed by Wes Armstrong and starring Devin White in the title role, the short, low-budget film employs some clever cutting techniques that remind
We were big fans of Superman Classic, the animated fan film created by Rob Pratt, when he released it online early last year. Inspired by the old live action Superman serials and Fleisher Studios cartoons of the 1940s, the one-minute short was produced in tradition
In the fifty years since he was created, Spider-Man has been seen in a lot of pretty strange live-action adaptations, including a Broadway musical and a mind-boggling Japanese tokusatsu show, but it looks like one of the strangest interpretations might also be the first. It's an 11-minute fan-film produced by Donald Glut in 1969, in which Spider-Man (played, of course, by Glut) battles against a supervillain called "Dr. Lightning" and occasionally turns into an action figure whenever special effects are required, and it's well worth seeing.
