Re: New feature-length Superman fan film online

I'm only about half way though it myself. It's alright some parts better than other. The actress playing Ally is a cutie and sometimes her acting is good and sometimes it isn't. The scenes with Lex Luthor aren't to bad and I think they could have gotten a better actor to play Superman...he's good as Clark but not too good as Superman.

I do agree this could be tightened to make a good 30 to 40 minute production.

Does anyone know how to burn this onto a DVD?

of the FEW ive seen and im talking this and a few episodes of New Voyages, I think most fanfilms lack a decent script editor, someone to really trim the fat and tighten the script up a bit.

This seemed to set out to be a full length movie, so they would not want to have cut it down to even 40 minutes.

But, oh dear, I just couldn't take seriously the actor playing Superman. He looked like a cross between Cripin Glover and Eddie Furlong and was too skinny to even convince as Spider-man, never mind Superman. Okay, not everyone can have a body like Henry Cavill, but could they not have padded out his suit in places?
Or jeez, at least try to do a few pushups before filming. It looked like that guy had never exercised a day in his life. lol

That would definitely help, but I think what it ultimately comes down to is just acting ability. Most fanfilm actors I've seen seem to lack even the fundamentals, such as being able to project their voice properly.

Re: New feature-length Superman fan film online

Congrats on finishing the feature and get it out there. Making a feature length film is a huge undertaking. Just to let you know, I did enjoy it. (I can't post on your Facebook it seems I'm on your limited access list). Also this is actually the 2nd full length feature superman fan film I have seen.

What trunks? Superman doesn't wear red trunks. That would be silly.

He does have a red belt, though.

This is actually my favorite Superman fan film:



You know, someone should try to go back and create another episode of something like the George Reeves series - budget would certainly not be an obstacle.

^ That was awesome. I think someone had a thread on it when it first came out.

Wow. I would definitely watch a production like this. It felt like the serials, it looked like the serials, it's just gorgeous all around!

well its always going to be easier to do it in animation. Thinking about it im surprised there isnt more Superman Animated FanFilms, once you settle on a style, the only thing you need to worry about is the voice.

Download RealPlayer or the FoxFire Add-on, or other program that allows you to download Streaming videos, and then run it through an AVI Converter.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing myself. It would be cool to see someone attempt a more action-packed version of the 50's show, perhaps using more of the actual comic book villains this time.

Plus it would just be fun to see those awesome trampoline take offs again.
