About

We love this game so much and we wanted to see what it would look like if it were real, so we're making it real!

We took a close look at how our hero starts his journey in the original Blaster Master video game. This short film takes us through what it would really be like if a normal person were to somehow end up in a cave and find an amazing high-tech tank.

We are putting together some of the best talent available to bring this beloved story to life. We're combining great resources in concept art, stunt performance, experienced visual effects, riveting acting performances, and breathtaking cinematography to tell the story that we've all wanted to hear.

We have been designing the look of the movie so that it would closely resemble what we've seen from the original game. We felt it was really important to recreate some parts from the game shot for shot.

With several years of development, brainstorming, collaborating, and inventing we are hoping to create a short film that would thrill any audience but especially the loyal fans.

Risks and challenges

Producing any quality film requires that many pieces fit together perfectly. Much more attention can be given to each piece by delegating those tasks to specialists or, in our case, department heads.

Our team is already busy with scheduling, building our props, booking crew, polishing our post-production workflow, and adhering to proper codes and regulations for production just to name a few. We've started working on every aspect of this project from producing the movie to marketing.

Our team is experienced enough to handle any situation because we understand that we must be proactive problem solvers while maintaining a professional environment, recognizing the importance of everyone's safety, and that we must "get the shot!"

We are also looking for a few more great people to help us in a few more areas. If you love the idea of this classic video game coming to life and have experience in filmmaking then please reach out to us, we would love to talk!
