Storyline

Batman versus the Predator? It happened. Raiders of the Lost Ark remade by kids? It happened. For years, people have been making home movies, many times using pop culture properties that they may not own, but love. In recent years, these types of projects have come to be known as "fanfilms". Backyard Blockbusters looks at the history and influence of the fanfilm genre, as well as the copyright and fair use problems these films create, featuring highlights from and interviews with the creators of many popular films.

A solid love note to the Fan Film
4 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is a look at a phenomenon that is the result of film technology being democratized: the fan film. Whether it's taking beloved characters and putting them in bizarre circumstances like Chad Vader or creating new characters like Pink Five or re-filming the sequences from a beloved film starring you and your friends instead of Harrison Ford, it's all documented here. Starring all your favorite fan film makers, including Harry Knowles, Ernie Fosselius, and "Fighting John" Hudgens!

Marvel at the lengths people go to! Behold the love and energy put into every frame! Scratch your head at the inexplicable Walter Koenig/George Takei Busby Berkeley number!* If you see just one documentary about fan films see BACKYARD BLOCKBUSTERS!

*Busby Berkeley number not included.
