Long blog title is long. Anyway, looks like Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman decided to be a bunch of dudes and star in some guys short Punisher fan film. If this doesn’t serve as a reminder to Marvel that people really liked Thomas Jane as The Punisher and want more I dunno what will. I’d be up for seeing a sequel provided it maintains the naturalistic style of the first film. If I saw a hint of the words 3D and anything resembling that terribad War Zone film I’d be out though. This short features a lot of Final Cut Pro stock camera shake and copious amounts of digital blood but it’s still a pretty cool little film. I do get bugged by how much short films are more about attention grabbing than being an expression of any artistic desire these days but at least this has an excuse of being frigging awesome on it’s side.

When Did Fan Films Start Attracting Hollywood Stars? Here’s A Punisher Fan Film Starring Thomas Jane.
When I first started this film blog dump nearly a year ago I thought I’d post the odd short film from time to time. I like short films, they show creativity at it’s most densely packed and can often give us a look at a future feature film talent or a visual artist. Then I forgot to keep an eye out for new ones after posting just one. Well I’ve just seen a new one that’s quite a doozy. Click the link to see Quantic Dream’s Kara.
So in my daily grind of a job I sell various forms of entertainment that come packaged within boxes in a disc based format. Apparently it’s an out of date industry and no-one buys them anymore. Which is odd because quite a few people still do. Because the UK currently has an above average level of idiots walking it’s streets British gangster and crime movies are all the rage. At least with those morons anyway. You know the sort I’m on about. the types that use swearing as punctuation, won’t read ANYTHING if they can avoid it and seem to think it’s OK to not work and instead scrounge off of benefits their whole life. By the way, if you’re one of them then this blog is not for you. Anyway, here’s a short film made by some clever chap that’s all about everything that’s wrong with the UK film industry these days. Watch it after the link…
Not often I’d post something like this but it is quite a n interesting piece of short film making. This is an animation about the shortness of life and the joys that it can hold. It was also apparently made by a 15 year old lad named Matthew Provenzano with music provided by, I assume, his brother Dom. Could be his dad. I’m picking up details where I can. Anywho, it took 1400 hand drawn pictures and 2 months to make this 3 minutes and 43 seconds of animation. If you’ve ever tried animating yourself you’ll know just how tiresome it can get. It takes genuine passion for the craft to actually complete anything in animation solo. So anyway click the link for the video and HD link.
