I couldn't find an existing thread for it so I'm making one.

I'm sure a lot of people have seen or been following the TMNT Blood Brothers fan movie. It looks AMAZING with full body suits for nearly every major TMNT character. I've been giddily awaiting the first teaser and here it is in all it's glory. XD I can't wait for this.

That's pretty cool, Seeing live action Bebop and Rocksteady, This looks like a fanfilm that will wet our appetite, until the upcoming sequel comes out.

Neat. Very Troma. I wish they'd stop with the "coming soon" stuff though, 'cause it's gonna be a long ass time before they're even close to releasing it.

Yea, I started following them right after they built B&R, but MAN! They literally build every major character/monster/thing in the TMNT universe, which is why it's taking so long. They have really been non-stop on this thing.
So far they have bodies made or in progress for Bebop, Rocksteady, all the turtles, Splinter, Krang, Fugitoid, Usagi, Baxter, mousers, a Triceraton, and Leatherhead. Plus they have Casey, April, and Shredder. It's pretty friggen nuts.

The simple truth is that they've been trying to get people to fund this, despite it being a passion project.

It looks really cool. Nice After Effects work. It's filmed and edited in Kung Fury style which embraces the usage of green screen due to budget restrictions. I'm sure most of the money they'd spend would be on costumes, gun replicas and etc. other than that they'll just have to spend ages in the post-production creating 3D sets and merging them with the live-action green screen footage. I think this could have a good end-result.

That's waaaay too many characters for what will probably be a short fan film. I appreciate the drive and dedication but I would've started with the basics and if money allowed, work other characters into the sequels.

I would've loved to see a web series of "Fight the Foot". There were a few problems here and there but the look and tone was pretty cool. Better than most live action fan films I've seen but too bad it never continued.

Andrew NDB

So last time, he started an Indiegogo campaign for $30,000.00 but only got $1,000.00... kept it... and now is asking in a second Indiegogo campaign for $40,000.00 to finish what is a short film? Seems dubious to me. And asking for that much money might be flying to close to the sun with Paramount/Viacom. We saw how much TPTB loved that with the "Star Trek: Axanar" people.

And of course, it's sort of awkward timing. If he'd ramped this up before "Out of the Shadows," I could see it being a more alluring to the "Classic" fans who were eagerly waiting to get their damn Bebop, Rocksteady and Krang movie... but now they already have that movie. So the prospect of funding this? Eh.

That Leatherhead looks cool, though.

Even if they where successful on getting the funds for it, they are flying dangerously close to the copyright-sun.

Given that they have so many characters, I rather it be a web series.

sure, with clustersmaus of characters they've maid suits of, a short movie wouldn't be sufficient enough. But unless they're gonna pay more out of their own pockets beyond costume making and not rely on Indigogos, that's not going to happen anytime soon.

If they do it as a web series, I don't think it would be 30 minutes for each episode, but shorter.

With this having so many characters, I bet most of the characters will just show up in small cameos.

It would have to be a web series if those characters get more screen time.

I also wonder if this version of Armaggon will be the one from the future like in the Archie comic.

Most likely cause that's where he originated from. I definitely want him to come out of his spacesuit at some point

This guy's vision is both so grand & so narrow simultaneously. It's like he has no idea what he's doing beyond adding a thousand characters. & he'll owe this thing's continued failure to launch to that very issue. It needs to be scaled down & grounded in order to realistically occur with some semblance of flow, otherwise it's just gonna be like one of those credit sequences in an SNES game where they introduce the character sprites one by one. :tlol:

Don't get me wrong, I look forward to seeing what he does. It's nice work, & I respect his obvious love/enthusiasm for the property & this project alike. It's just hard to watch the process be seemingly willy-nilly.

oldmanwinters
11-01-2016, 08:21 PM

That is the perfect analogy!

At this point, I hope he just ends up doing a web series in the "mutant of the week" format. Maybe have one or two Turtles at a time going up against one or multiple villains with a supporting character or two (Splinter, April, Casey, Fugitoid, etc.) Could be simple, fun,and not too ambitious... probably the wisest course of action at this point to make use of all those character designs and still get something on film.

Powder
11-01-2016, 10:20 PM
That does indeed sound like the best way to go about it, yeah! It'd keep people's attention, continued use of the resources, plenty of time to give each costume/character it's fair due etc.

I really want this to happen now.

Something in the vein of Bat in theSun's "Super Power Beat Down Series" where the viewer gets dropped into the middle of a fast-paced action sequence without having to worry about too much buildup would be ideal... and maybe necessary to make worthwhile use of all those characters and costumes.

I'm going to shoot a trailer with all the characters early next year. In April I will do another fundraiser on kickstarter, it's do or die if I Can't raise the money expecially showing something with all the charecters, then I have no choice but to abandon the project. I have original scripts and charecters I need to focus on.

Is it still a "passion project" if you quit after making all the costumes because people won't pay you to make the thing you said you'd make whether or not they did? :tlol:

Skinrash

I think the best thing for him to do would be to reduce the number of characters. Less money and people needed then. Make a movie about the core characters and save guys like the Triceraton, Fugitoid, Usagi Yojimbo and Armaggon for a potential sequel. Or sell the costumes for those guys to get more money for the project.

Candy Kappa
11-24-2016, 04:23 AM
I assume the Turtles where finished before he started making the other costumes. Maybe a better approach is making shorts with the Turtles fighting one or two baddies per short then go wild over every TMNT character ever, marketing a Short at a time with a lower budget.

Andrew NDB
02-28-2017, 02:54 PM
Looks like the Indiegogo only earned 4% of what he was looking for. I wonder if it's still going to happen.

""Blood Brothers" I'm going to do another funder raiser in April, if I can't raise the money then, all it will ever be is a fancy trailer"

Sabacooza
02-28-2017, 05:14 PM
I think it's safe to say it'll be a "fancy trailer". The project is way too ambitious and if I was going to invest any money into something like this, it would have to be top notch with a pleasing visual style. This just doesn't look that great to me.

...along with a comment.

So I did 2 fund raisers and only generated a couple thousand, didn't even cover materials to make a couple of these guys. Unless I can raise the full thirty grand I was hoping to get, I'm afraid a 2 or 3 min short is all I can afford to do.

I mean, all of this stuff looks nice...but it just seems like wayyyy too much effort and time into something that ultimately might not even add up to what your original ambitions may be.

Andrew NDB
03-01-2017, 10:10 AM
I know this guy in particular has a good heart about it, but I'm really getting tired of these guys (and these are guys that have generally never been a part of the actual online fandom) that come out of the woodwork with fan projects like this and Dawn of the Ninja folks, maybe even that dude's "Come to my super cool Vanilla Ice TMNT party!" that are all about, "Look! Give me your money! My project has got everything that TMNT fans want! EVERYBODY will be happy!"

No it doesn't. No, they won't. Just make your project and don't pretend or profess it to be something it's not. No 2 TMNT fans like the same crap, let alone a whole fandom. Douche.

I don't think enough people care. And 3K is pretty steep.

IMO they need to bite the bullet and just do a short. We know the costumes look good but what about the acting and the martial arts? I'm sure after we see a short more people would be more inclined to donate.

This actually looks pretty fun!

Wouldn't mind watching it if it ever came to fruition. I like some of the stylistic choices they make. The whole thing feels like the original toy line's box-art come to life. It has a colorful/punk rock feel to it. I like it for what it is.

Um. Probably not enough to donate though. Anyways, I'll check back later. If any of you working on this are here on the forum, welcome and good luck!

First off i want to thank everybody that believed in this project enough to make a pledge. Unfortunately, to many mistakes where made early on that left a lot of people confused, Due to the confusion and lackluster response to this project, as well as the people pulling the pledges they've made, I have decided to cancel the fundraiser. Again a big thank you to the people that tried to help, i am grateful and to show my gratitude i will still do a two minute teaser with all the characters i intended to put in the film, i will put it on youtube and facebook when it is complete. to all the backers that helped previously you will be getting a copy of all that we have shot very soon. Thanks again Scotty Fields
Looks like he's done, He'll only shoot a 2 minute teaser with what he has done so far, and that's it, its unfortunate if this project was advertised more, maybe it could've been funded by then.

With that many characters, maybe its better if it was made as a web series.
