MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
Who would swing off a six-story building for a homemade Spider-Man movie? Why would newlyweds spend $20,000 on a Star Wars film from which they can never profit? How did three nobodies blow Steven Spielbergâ€™s mind with an Indiana Jones flick they made as teens in the Eighties?
Theyâ€™re all part of the Fan Film revolutionâ€“an underground movement where backyard filmmakers are breaking the law to create unauthorized movies starring Batman, James Bond, Captain Kirk, Harry Potter and other classic characters. Regular people are making movies that the fans want to seeâ€“and which copyrights and common sense would never allow.
Joining in the discussion this week is Dr. Peter Coogan and Clive Young.
Dr. Peter M. Coogan writes about comics, is the director of the Institute for Comics Studies and co-founder and co-chair of the Comic Arts Conference, which runs during the San Diego Comic-Con International and San Francisco WonderCon.
Clive Young is the senior editor of Pro Sound News, and is a regular contributor to MTV to Go, Videography magazine, VH1.com, iPodlounge.com and many more. His latest book, Homemade Hollywood: Fans Behind the Camera hit bookstores in November 2008, and he joins us on the show this week.
