What about Videogame Fan Films? (shortblog)

I realize this probably should've been my "Expanded Universes" blog, but I didn't discover this video until after I'd posted that Gradius/Life Force Anime blog. Still, we all know about Video Game movies and the horrors that lie within the deepest recesses of video game Fan Fiction, but what about those souls who slave behind a camera, rather than a pen or a word processor? Those masochistic souls who spend hours upon hours editing with Adobe Premiere (or Heaven Forbid, Windows Movie Maker) out of love for a specific title, like this video here:




I found that lumped in with countless versions of the Official Splatterhouse 2009 Comic-Con trailer. I know it's not much, but hell if it didn't impress me. It's rare to see something like that on YouTube by accident; especially since when I deliberately search for fan-made material, the best I can come up with is a film someone made in their backyard, followed by a thousand "VGMV'S" (that's Video Game Music Videos for those who hate acronyms) and a hundred thousand "Reviews" by 13-year-olds who weren't even alive when the game originally released. It's a shame that we won't see stuff like that in our local cineplexes, but I'm content to watch it on the internet for free.
