Watch: Dinosaurs, Vikings, Guns & More in 'Sin City' Style 'Kung Fury'
If the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse (or the feature-length Machete inspired by the film) wasn't enough craziness on the big screen for your liking, then we have a new project for you to check out. Kung Fury a film inspired by the 80s, and shot much like Robert Rodriguez's adaptation of Sin City. During an unfortunate series of events, a friend of renegade cop Kung Fury is assasinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time: Adolf Hitler, the Kung Führer. So Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. But the craziness doesn't end there as Vikings, guns, dinosaurs and mutants share the screen too. Watch now!
If that looks like something you'd want to see, this next part is very important. After quitting his job and investing everything he has into making this film, director David Sandberg is all out of cash, and he needs help to finish his passion project. As of now, the film has $115,441 pledged of their $200,000 goal, and they have 28 days left to meet that. Here's what a press release for the film says:
Even tough the film takes place in 1980s Miami, the whole film has been shot in Sweden and Norway. David Sandberg started this project over a year ago. Driven by a strong will, love for the 80s and action movies to create a unique movie. He took $5000 of his own money that he put it into the project and started shooting whenever he and his friends had time.
And here's some images from behind the scenes so you can see how this craziness comes together:
As you can see, Sandberg has been shooting against a green screen pretty much all the time. Initially, the director was doing all of the visual effects himself, but his friends and an intern have jumped on board to help in that department, and Academy Award nominated producer Mathias Fjellström is also involved with the film now. If the Kickstarter works, the 30-minute film will be made available online for free in 6 months, and he hopes it will lead to a feature film version. You can check out more information at the film's Kickstarter page, and SlashFilm has some more cool behind the scenes photos as well. Interested at all?
