But first one last fan made trailer that I forgot to include it in the last batch.
Oregon Trail the movie
For all those kids of the 90s, who boldly (and virtually) set out to cross America, only to end up seeing their friends, families and teachers names emblazoned on a series of dysentery related gravestones, this is for you.
Bright Falls: The prequel to Alan Wake
Alan Wake was one of the most atmospheric games in the last few years, with obvious inspiration from the likes of Stephen King and David Lynch. This prequel series really captures that same Twin Peaks, small secluded town vibe that made for such a great setting of the game.
Assassin’s Creed: Lineage
Assassins Creed II had a development team of 450 people. Apparently this meant some of that team were standing around with some free time to kill, because instead of working on the game Ubisoft put them to work on a thirty minute long prequel movie. It follows Giovanni Auditore who is the father of Ezio from the game.
Mortal Kombat: Rebirth
This one sort of crosses the line between official marketing material and a fan film. A gritty and realistic take on the Mortal Kombat universe that was made on a $7,500 budget. Director Kevin Tancharoen made it in an attempt to convince Warner Bros to let him make a new Mortal Kombat film. Apparently several million views on YouTube was enough to at least convince them to fund a series of webisodes based on the franchise.
Mortal Kombat: Legacy
While not quite the movie he was pitching for, Legacy is Tancharoen’s attempt at a full Mortal Kombat web series. Most episodes focus on a specific character and the origins of how they became involved in the Mortal Kombat tournament. Oh and it’s awesome. After an incredible reception from fans, Warner Bros finally decided to back Kevin Tancharoen’s big screen reboot of the franchise.
