UNDERDOG (Fan Film)

 

This is a fan film of a classic TV show from the 60’s entitled “Underdog”. I hope you enjoy!


This little movie was something I had in mind for a while, what would the silly 60’s cartoon look like with a Christopher Nolan type feel? Using similar music ques and a darker tone as far as the film making style went. Well, I hope I somewhat did that right. Filming in Philadelphia was awesome and those were the first shots filmed for the movie, including my cousin Nick as the bad guy, Raff. He’s been in a lot of my movies and he is a joy to work with, always has a lot of good ideas! He was in Genesis not to long ago. The drive was long to and from that location, but I think I got some awesome nighttime city footage-which this movie really needed.

The next scene filmed was on Christmas day, with Brian, my other cousin. You’ll remember him from the Daiquiri Christmas Special and the cameo in my other fan film, Alien: Earthbound. We filmed his scene in perhaps 10 min or so in among all the holiday festivities. The scenes with dad and I were filmed a day or so later, so I combined the two scenes and I think they both flow well. Overall, this movie was done for purely fun. I wasn’t tackling some life long project, but as said-fun was the main motivator.

 

 

Underdog (Fan Film)- Production Stuff!

I am filming a fan film of UNDERDOG, the show from the 60’s. Basically, I’m giving him not only a fan film, but a sort of re-imagining.

What would UD look like in a Christopher Nolan universe? Well, hopefully this movie sort of answers that- I do keep a sort of a comedic vibe going since it’s not meant to be taken 100% seriously. Below are some pics. 🙂
