THE FILM

"Fan Made" is a Documentary in which Narrator and Filmmaker Matt Munson will follow several fan-films through production and post production, as well as interview several Fan-Filmmakers, Producers, Actors and Content Creators.

We want to investigate why people put so much time, money, and heart into  projects that can't ever be sold or profited from.

We will not only be following productions, but also analyzing and discussing the different approaches of specific fan-filmmakers and talking about the many different interpretations, styles, and levels of fan-films. 

THE CREATORS

Matt Munson - Matt made his first fan film when he was 7 years old; a stop motion Star Wars short, captured with his fathers 8mm camera. Matt recently completed his 100th video for his growing youtube channel, "The Project Work Bench", where he focuses on tutorial videos, interviews with fellow builders and film makers, and progress updates on his most ambitious project to date: a full sized replica of the 1989 Batmobile seen in the Tim Burton Batman film.

Joey Rassool - Joey has been working as a DP since 2008. his work has been seen on FOX, Machinima, Spike TV, and has been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  Joey's first film was a James bond fan-film, shot in his backyard starring his then 10 year old brother. Joey has been a "go to" DP for many fan-filmmakers in the LA area, especially in the Batman genre.

WHERE'S YOUR MONEY GOING?

the money raised on kickstarter will mainly fund production of the material rewards such as DVDs, Posters, Shirts, Hoodies, etc. 

the money spent on production will be funding:

-Transport to Florida to shoot the fan film by Vic Mignogna "Star Trek Continues"

-Transport to Austin to visit and interview Rooster Teeth for their work on "Red vs Blue"

-Equipment rentals for our interview session 

-Graphic design for posters, animations, charts etc. 

Risks and challenges

Since both Matt Munson and Joey Rassool are already so deep into the fan-film scene, production won't be a challenge at all. This film will get made.

There is some risk that DVD's may get pushed back if the film is taking longer than expected. The reason this may happen is that our filming schedule will also be determined by the filming schedules and release schedules of each project we feature.
