Homemade Hollywood by Clive Young

Book Description

This is a comprehensive book about fan films, covering the secret history of the burgeoning movement creating the cinema of tomorrow.Who would risk his life swinging six stories above the ground without a net, just for a homemade Spiderman movie? What would drive a young couple with a newborn baby to spend their life savings on a Star Wars film that has been seen by 4 million people - but from which they can never profit? And why would Steven Spielberg praise three nobodies for a home movie they made as teenagers in the Eighties? They're fan filmmakers, creating the cinema of tomorrow: quick, bite-sized movies, starring world-famous characters from Superman to Captain Kirk to Lara Croft. The flicks are fun, free and totally illegal.Now, thanks to Internet sites like YouTube and file sharing technologies like Bit Torrent, this controversial filmmaking movement is starting to rise to the surface. Likewise, Hollywood is taking notice: However, there is no comprehensive book about fan films. There's no tome devoted to the controversies surrounding this unlawful brand of filmmaking and how they're already changing today's media. There's no guide that tells you which movies to search out - and which ones to leave hidden under their rocks. "Homemade Hollywood: The Fan Film Phenomenon" can be that book.
