My team and I just finished our first game to live action short, based off of the popular Capcom franchise: Street Fighter. Its always pained us not to see the movies focus on the two most iconic characters from the series so we thought wed pay tribute to the epic fighters that Capcom have created and make a small short film demonstrating some of their talents; all the while showing a take on Ken and Ryu at their dojo before Ryu enters the World Warrior Tournament for the first time (Street Fighter 1 Territory).
The short consisted of a $400 (out of pocket) budget, was shot on the Canon EOS 7D, edited in Final Cut Pro and effects work done in Adobe After Effects. We hope you enjoy what we have put together! My dream is to make feature films that focus on video games/comics/anime and adapt them into a live action format. Im hoping this is a step in the right direction.

"Time is ticking for Captain Elis as he interrogates a mysterious man with ties to an unnamed bioterrorist group holding a team of BSAA operatives hostage in an abandoned school. Foxtrot team is sent in to rescue the hostages through the zombie infested town of Red Falls, while the remaining members of the BSAA team plot an escape of their own."
Made over the course of a year, this fan film has turned into a true passion project as we have poured out thousands of hours into the production. This was a project fueled by the love of action movies and the source material: Resident Evil. Other than a few classes at local community colleges, no one in the production was officially trained for any role in the film. What that means is that regardless of whether or not we were behind or in front of the camera, we were learning as we went along. So in making Red Falls, it was proven to be an invaluable learning experience... even if sometimes it felt like more of an arduous journey filled with what appeared to be insurmountable difficulties at points. Obviously budget constraints were always an issue. In the fund raising stage many came to our aid with great monetary sacrifice, donating as much as $100, and these people were commended in the credits as special thanks and some as Executive Producers. This helped us get a great sprint for the project, but in the long run the project grew and so did the need for a greater budget, and even knowing that we would not be making this back none of us hesitated to pump in more cash and time for the sake of making a more excellent product. Our budget for this project approximately came out to a little under two grand when spread throughout the course of a year... And we don't regret spending a dime of it! One thing HUGE part of the film were able to secure for free were the locations, everything was shot here in mid-Michigan and the different owners of the building were so generous in letting us use them without charge. There are of course plenty of things in retrospect that we would love to change about the project, but I suspect there always will be with any given project. Overall we are incredibly pleased with what we were able to accomplish given such constraints, and I'm VERY proud of my team for the level of effort and excellence they injected into this project. None of us are full time filmmakers or actors, we are all juggling jobs that leave us unfulfilled at the end of the day. Our genuine hopes is to get noticed by some of the folks over at Capcom or Screen Gems, so from a business standpoint if anyone is interested in hiring any person involved in the production please contact me personally at: email@example.com.
Thank you for watching and we sincerely hope you enjoy!

Warner Bros. recently announced plans to revive "Critters" as a web series for their digital unit, Blue Ribbon Content. I've been a die-hard fan of the series since I was a kid and wanted to show that I would be the right director for the project. This short film is my pitch... Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
Critters Bounty Hunter was completed from start to finish in under two months with a small budget and an even smaller crew. All in, a total of six people worked on the movie: Myself, Kevin Stewart, Ricky Fosheim, Nick Soole, Troy Smith and Gina Luciani. We shot for two nights at a house in Mammoth Lakes, California. The Critter puppet was built by Troy Smith who worked with us on both ThanksKilling movies. Our crew handled everything from building the bounty hunter costume, learning the VFX required to pull off the glowing head, scoring, title cards, sound design, etc. We're proud of what we pulled off with limited resources and can't wait to share this with everyone. Turn up the volume and hit HD - We hope you enjoy our fun little take on Critters!
