SPIDER-MAN 3 FOR ALL (AT BRADLEY UNIVERSITY)

Just received this one via E-Mail the other day and I decided to share it with you lucky folks today! The film, Spider-Man 3 For All, is by Alexander Malamos, a brief synopsis of the film from it’s creators is available below. Enjoy!

“When Dr. Connors turns into the Lizard, he blames Peter Parker for helping him with the transformation (As seen in Spider-Man Vengeance). Meanwhile, Punisher thinks Spider-Man is the man who attacked a student, and aims to punish Spider-Man.

This is Alex Malamos, one of the minds behind this short – I just wanted to add that this movie was shot with a very low budget, as full-time college students, trying to make a decent movie in our final 4 months of school ever. Then a month or two later graduation.

I apologize for it not being the greatest quality in terms of…well, everything. Nonetheless, we had fun with it and knowing that info I hope all can enjoy it. I think the budget was around $155, not including the stuff I happened to have before it anyways, which would put it at $450. Compared to my other attempts at spiderman fan films, this was amazing. That’s what it was mostly for me. A personal record; leaving the other two ‘films’ in the dust. And I can safely say I did that.

I want to thank the youtube sound effect page for allowing me to use some of the effects available on his page. That page is located at http://www.youtube.com/user/SoundEffectsCapital. ”

Thank you!

FBT INVADES CONNECTICON 2012′!

As promised,  I’m back, and chock full of coverage from my day at ConnectiCon 2012′! I attended the Con on Saturday (June 14th) along with my good buddy/awesome artist/ Marshal Couture (www.plexhop.com). It was held at The Connecticut Convention Center, in Hartford Connecticut, June 13th-15th.

ConnectiCon was billed as a ‘Multi-Genre’ convention, and it was in many ways. Cos-Players were in abundance, gaming tables were everywhere, Anime panels & screenings of upcoming films were showing, and the general vibe of the Con was great, but a lack of comic book culture left Marshal and I feeling like strangers in a strange land.

Don’t get me  wrong, I support Geekdom, and its many incarnations, but comic books just happen to be MY thing. A Handful of Comic Artists and vendors were present, and we had the pleasure of getting to know a few of them (shouts to: Stacie Ponder, Sticky Comics, Mike Costello & Tina Pratt, Joe Hill, Kristilyn, Garth Cameron Graham, John McDowell, David Woodward, Dern & O-Abnormal, Nick Palazzo, Out At Home Comics, and Zack Finfrock) I just hope that comic book culture will be a bigger presence at ConnectiCon 2013′.

Marshal and I had a great time overall. The convention hall was spacious, allowing for easier navigation around the Con (I’m used to the madness of NYC Comic Conventions)  There was also a large seating/rest area (to take a break from the action), and we scored ourselves some cool swag to boot! I highly recommend attending next year’s Connecticon if you are into any of the above, it’s the little Con that offers a lot. Thanks for having us as your guests ConnectiCon 2012′! We’ll be back  😉

PS-Check out some pics from our adventure at ConnectiCon 2012′ below, and make sure to drop by Marshal’s podcast for even more coverage of the event.
