I want to run a hypothetical situation by everybody, and I hope most people are game for throwing in their two cents... Over time, and after seeing all the top fanfilms to date, I've often thought about a hypothetical "ultimate fan film" where you take the strengths of the better fanfilms and the saving graces of the not so good films and combine them for one film. Here's the question. Let's say that you're suddenly granted the opportunity to take all of your favorite fanfilm elements, all from currently finished and released fanfilms, and make your ultimate fanfilm by the grace of God, the Force, a genie, or whatever higher power you prefer. Be it writers, actors, crewmembers, plotlines, characters, whatever. You can assume any role in the production process that you want. However, you don't have to. You don't have to direct it, you don't have to write it...let's just say you're the executive producer at the very least. So what would you do for your fanfilm? You don't have to write an essay, but a least cover most of the bases. Who would direct, who would be in it, and who would handle your effects. Feel free to make it interesting by getting into who would handle what type of role (action vs. acting, for example). I think there are a lot of instances where an actor's subpar performance may have been a result of a poor casting decision. Here's a chance to discuss some untapped potential.
