Big dreams, tiny budgets. Backyard Blockbusters explores the art of the fan film. This documentary includes interviews with some of the best fan film-makers, including the creators of Troops, Pink Five and Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation. Learn about the struggles and unexpected benefits of getting your fan film pulled by a studio, and how it differs from studio to studio (Lucasfilm actually rewards fan films). It's a fascinating look into the lives of the die hard fans and creators. There's also a brief appearance by own Annalee Newitz, weighing in on the future of fan-made movies.
