Fan Films

from the the-next-big-thing dept

Salon has an article looking at the new phenomenon of fan films where film makers make new films based on older, popular films. The most popular, not surprisingly, is Star Wars fan films. Most credit Troops as starting the genre, and I still think it’s one of the best out there. The cool thing is that the folks from the original films (you know, the ones who have the right to sue) have been very good about supporting these fan films.
