Watch: Awesome Low Budget Fan-Made 'Mega Man X' Action Short
"X possess great risk, but also great possibilities." How about some low budget sci-fi to end the week? We stumbled across another fantastic fan-made short film that I highly suggest watching, called Mega Man X, featuring Dr. Light and Protoman and much more. It's an extremely low budget YouTube short, made for about $700 by Olan Rogers, that looks awesome, and was done so damn well you can't even believe it was made using "two green sheets, an amazing prop maker, two actors who worked for free… and one awesome friend who busted his butt on the animation side." Damn I love when super low budget work turns out great.
This definitely has an old school Tron feeling, and I love the little behind-the-scenes glimpse at the end in the credits. Olan Rogers states: "This isn't a perfect video I understand this, this is all independently made I didn't have a lot of money but I decided to do it anyway I had 700 dollars, two green sheets, an amazing prop maker, two actors who worked for free because I didn't have enough money to pay them, they still gave 110% and one awesome friend who busted his butt on the animation side. Thank you for taking the time to watch and for your support. I HOPE!!!! I did this game justice!" For full credits, including FX, see YouTube.
