Superhero Shorts: Death of Spider-Man

Death of Spider-Man Motion Comic

Welcome to this week’s edition of Superhero Shorts where I take a look at a different superhero themed short film and get the creator of the film to answer a few interview questions. This week I’m talking with Andrew Bates and Drew Lawson who came up with their own motion comic for Ultimate Spider-Man #158-160 written by Brian Bendis where Peter Parker dies. It’s very high quality both in terms of the animation as well as the voice work, it’s on par if not better than the few professional motion comics I’ve seen before. It’s a bit longer than many of the shorts I feature here with a runtime of just over 20 minutes, but it’s worth the watch.

Superhero Shorts: Disassembled

Superhero Shorts: Disassembled

Welcome to this week’s edition of Superhero Shorts where I take a look at a different superhero themed short film and get the creator of the film to answer a few interview questions. This week I’m talking with Junaid Chundrigar and his animated short film Disassembled. While the Avengers movie was all about how the heroes assembled together to form their team, this is what happens on a bad day when they get disassembled. It’s very Robot Chicken-esque with a bunch of very quick mini-scenes. And it’s not just the Avengers that were featured in the movie, it also features several other famous Marvel characters, many of whom I believe were also Avengers at some point in time. As always, you can watch the short right below, or you can watch it at Junaid’s YouTube Channel

Welcome to this week’s edition of Superhero Shorts where I take a look at a different superhero themed short film and get the creator of the film to answer a few interview questions.

It’s called Spider-Man: Eclipse and I got the chance to talk with the director Al White. You can check the short out at their website SpidermanEclipse.com or you can watch it right below.

Superhero Shorts: Three to look out for

Welcome to an atypical edition of Superhero Shorts, once again I was shorthanded on getting a new interview, so instead I thought of a better idea. Instead of talking about a fan-film that’s already been finished, I thought I’d take a quick look at three projects I found on Kickstarter that are trying to get enough funding to be made. I didn’t get a chance to talk to any of the project founders as this was a fairly last-minute idea, but they all look pretty interesting and I think they’re worth it. So if you’re looking to help bring new superhero fan-films to light, then look no further.

You can check out their short, or you can visit their YouTube Channel for a gag reel and some great promos for the short, or you can watch the film right below.

Why Do I Appreciate the Fan-Film?

Why Do I Appreciate the Fan-Film?

I’ve expanded this blog a lot over the past few months and one of the first features I introduced besides these blog posts and of course the reviews was Superhero Shorts, where I feature a superhero themed short film, which so far has always been a fan-film, and interview the creator. It’s honestly been a lot more work than it may seem, as YouTube is frought with a lot of copycat uploads so it’s not always easy to find the original if it even exists on YouTube itself. And on top of that, it’s not exactly the most popular feature on this site. Sure, there have been a couple breakout articles, such as the Hillywood show which got a big bump when they graciously plugged it on their own very popular Facebook page, but I doubt any of their fans stuck around to read any of my other articles. And Garrett Gilchrist’s interview about his unfinished She-Hulk movie, which he also graciously plugged it on his Tumblr page, though fans of She-Hulk are actually more likely to stick around on top of the fact that it is currently my favorite interview I’ve done so far. But if it’s hard to do, and not that popular, then why continue to do it?
