Gamera Fan Film: "Guardian"?

Spinning flame-jetted turtles, space birds being chopped up like bologna, kids in shorts screaming for help...the original Gamera series was a strange mix of wacky fun!! The 90's Gamera films set a standard that other kaiju films are measured against! Discuss Gamera films here!!

I'm sure MFW could tell you a whole lot more about him but in general terms my understanding is that the guy is, uh, unpleasant.

He was the would-be director of the overly-hyped Godzilla Zero Hour fanfilm that never materialized. Among other douchebaggy stunts he apparently pulled, he solicited donations at GFest for the film's production and wound up spending them all on a PSP on the ride home.

I have no room to criticize canning a fanfilm midway through production (*cough*) but everything else I've heard about this guy was pretty distasteful.

According to my Googling of him he writes crappy urban dictionary definitions and also died 11 years ago.

Hmmmm... my dream of The Asylum turning out a cheap Gamera film, possibly starring a faded '90s TV star or '80s pop singer, have been dashed.

So, this was a fanfilm all along, no official production? A bit disappointed if that's the case, but it makes sense. Snowden did say he had no idea if it was official or not. Would also explain why it's simply called The Guardian with "Gamera" nowhere to be seen in the title, I guess.

Now, in Kadokawa we trust.

From this it's supposed to be an independent film, not truly a fan film, because this is apparently been licensed. It seems interesting though, the issue is now because of Gamera'a 50th he may have to scrap it. I'd like this. and about the Atlantean descendant angle...maybe it's something in the DNA?

Not only does Franz's involvement confirm that it's a fan film, it also confirms that it most likely won't get finished... Seriously.

It's not licensed. It's nothing. He's trolling people with another project that he's just gonna show stills of instead of actually making. Please don't believe this, guys.

Can't anything be done about these losers wasting the time of the fans and misleading eveyone with these big scoops? Geesh.

Okay, should I be glad that I've been on this board for 14 years and have completely ignored stuff like this or should I be concerned with huge gaps in my memory because whenever any controversies or fan wars are mentioned I have zero memory of them!?!

With this pretty much being confirmed as a fan-film I think it should be moved to a different section to avoid confusion with the actual Kadokawa approved reboot...

this actually IS a very good point.

Take Ultraman Sorta and/or Godzilla:Battle Royale as an example...would people be as aware of these things if they were just plunked in some sort of "Fan Film" section?

Almost assuredly not. I mean, I'm pretty sure people wholly ignore the Fandom and Fan Activities stuff, since basically nobody ever responded to any of the podcast posts from me, or MFW, or MekaGojira3k, or even Irish GFan's youtube reviews...

so then we'd have people effectively spamming the boards, putting their fan projects there AND in the official spots to try to garner more views/reviews...
Long story short, something like this is fine in just the "Gamera" section since it's not like there are daily threads created to new Gamera things.
