Earlier this year, I tried with a couple of fan films. I thought it would get at least quite a few views from those hardcore fans. In the end, it got millions views!
The Matrix was my first attempt at a fan film. This was actually shot just by myself and it was just at the start of the pandemic. While the actual movie relied on heavy VFX and action, I had to come up with a relevant story that still engages the audience. So I went ahead and created a similar scene as the opening scene of the first film and made it modern. So far it is just over 2 million views.
Time to bring in James Bond fans for my second one, and the production value also went up a bit. While I realised the film lacked a lot of the important characteristics of Bond from the franchise, it was still really fun to shoot. It is now sitting at just over 1 million views.
