Just something fun I came across, I like the idea that these worlds created for film and their intersection with our culture and ‘reality’ create other arenas in which to tell stories. Plus I am keen to get my feet wet in helping out with a film project at some point – that would be very cool.
Anyhow, what prompted this was Fanboys which is a film about a bunch of Star Wars fans made by a bunch of Star Wars fans for … well … a bunch of Star Wars fans.
The Fanboys Wikipedia entry has heaps more links and fleshes out some of the controversy in its creation even. I am not sure how we will get to see this – maybe it will be online sometime soon – that might be fun. There is an interview with Kyle Newman on StarWars.com and the official site has other bits to check out.
