Fan films have really taken off over the past few years. Taking on a fan film requires a lot of time and sacrifice. But, they can earn you a lot of attention and possibly as the years progress, bring us our next generation of creators and directors. Olan Rogers took his love of the MegaMan franchise and made this short film. He did it on only a shoe string budget of $700 and created a great film in the process.
Olan Rogers explains the film
The beginning part of the video is a message Dr.Light records over 100 years ago, his lab is now abandoned. As the camera moves into the capsule you see a still running testing parameter where Mega Man X fights a hologram or drone in the form of Protoman. The reason I chose to use Protoman, was for the mystery surrounding him it’s never officially said what happens to him. So after this test ends with a charged blast from X he faces a choice to kill but he chooses to show mercy, After which a hologram appears telling him that his testing is done. What isn’t seen is who brought him out of the capsule which of course is Dr.Cain, maybe for another time. 🙂
This isn’t a perfect video I understand this, this is all independently made I didn’t have a lot of money but I decided to do it anyway I had 700 dollars, two green sheets, an amazing prop maker, two actors who worked for free because I didn’t have enough money to pay them, they still gave 110% and one awesome friend who busted his butt on the animation side.
Thank you for taking the time to watch and for your support. I HOPE!!!! I did this game justice!
