Enter The Freeman, a decidedly incredible short that was "shot by fans over two nights in a cottage in the middle of Hollywood for about $3000."
Everything is top notch, especially the live-action Gordon Freeman. Nailed it.
Warner Bros. has been sitting on the film adaptation rights to ElfQuest for a long time. They were close to actually making a movie, but now the rights have been acquired by independent filmmakers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes. Who are they? They're the people who made this ElfQuest fan-short back in 2011.
