Fan Films and beyond

 

Homemade HollywoodThere is a big web release this week for a $3,000 fan film by Lord of the Rings enthusists. I’ve heard of fan fiction, and fan films seem like the logical next step in the crazed fan sphere, but it still amazes me that someone could dedicate so much of their life to creating an alternate backstory for a film. I suppose I could read up on this intense subculture in a book by Clive Young titled “Homemade Hollywood: Fans behind the Camera”.
