Futurama Fan Film

I am a huge, huge fan of Futurama - it is perhaps my favorite animated series ever made. I never get to talk about it on FS because we don't cover TV at all, but finally I get a chance to gush about it. Timed perfectly with Comic-Con this week is the release of a trailer for a live-action fan film version of Futurama, titled Fan-O-Rama. To save themselves from getting in trouble, this is a completely independently made fan film, made by fans for fans, with quite a small budget. As much as I want to love this, there's something that just feels off about - I'm not sure if it's the make-up or the cardboard robots or what, but it's almost too awkward to seriously enjoy. And I'm saying this as a huge fan of Futurama. Maybe it's just best as a cartoon. That said, this trailer is still worth watching anyway, just to get a sense of what they are going for. Have fun.

Here's the official trailer for Fan-O-Rama, a Futurama Fan Film, direct from YouTube (via SlashFilm):

Fan-O-Rama Poster

Description from their website: "In the year 2014 one man, Dan Lanigan, in addition to other men, and some women, set out on a quest to become the first person in his family to create a live-action Futurama fan film. He is now regarded by most of his immediate kin as the foremost authority on the subject. This is his story." The trailer for a "out of this world" feature quality live action fan film of everyone's favorite Sci-Fi Comedy, FUTURAMA! This is apparently just a trailer for a full-length feature, but who knows if it will ever be released publicly. SlashFilm also adds: "The film is privately financed and they’re not looking for any donations to make it happen, and they likely aren’t looking to make a profit either since that would be illegal. They’re just fans with resources and passion for Futurama." For more, visit the film's site. Thoughts?
