You may have heard about the Indiana Jones fan remake that took more than 30 years to complete and spawned a documentary, as it’s been in the SXSW news recently.
Fan films are not a new phenomenon, whether it’s a famous director getting a chance to mount his own vision of his favorite film from his childhood, or create a shot for shot remake. Or to add another meta-layer, another famous director can come in and combine the the source and the remake to create a whole new level of fan film. There have even been movies about fans making movies, whether from a deep sense of nostalgia or a general love of movies. On a much smaller budget, fans have even created crowdsourced tributes to their favorite movies.
If you had a chance to recreate a favorite movie (either shot-for-shot, crowdsourced, or whatever), what would it be?
