Indie Spotlight: FALLOUT Fan Film, FALLOUT: LANIUS

     September 7, 2013


It’s been a busy week in the world of crowd-funded movie projects: Fan-favorite film critic Harry Knowles managed to secure funding for another year of his web series, “Ain’t It Cool with Harry Knowles” and writer-director John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley) reached and exceed the goal for his halted project, Reach Me.  While the former project will feature such guest stars as Wes Craven, Danny Boyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Campbell and more dropping by for a chat, the latter will star Sylvester Stallone, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten, Terry Crews, Tom Berenger, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly and Kelsey Grammer, just to name a few.

Today’s Indie Spotlight, however, is about a fan film that’s already successfully raised funds through crowd-sourcing and then delivered on that promise in a big way.  From director Wade K. Savage comes the short film Fallout: Lanius, inspired by Bethesda’s video game, Fallout: New Vegas.  It’s a great example of what a passionate filmmaking team can do even on a shoestring budget and further evidence that the world of videogames is ripe for the right kind of movie adaptations.  While it’s an entertaining watch for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fallout: New Vegas, it’s a whole other level of enjoyment for fans of the game (especially if you stick around until the end).  Hit the jump for more.

Check out the fan film Fallout: Lanius below, followed by the synopsis.  Be sure to head over to the film’s Facebook page for more content:

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

On the brink of ruin, the Hidebark people are about to be wiped out by the slaving organization, Caesar’s Legion. However, their most ruthless warrior would prefer death to dishonour. “FALLOUT: LANIUS” will recount how a single man brings ruin to his people due to his lust for bloodshed and victory.

Fallout: Lanius was crowdfunded in late 2012 via Indiegogo for $19,000. The film was shot in Perth, Western Australia. We have had a tremendous amount of support from both Bethesda Softworks and Obsidian Entertainment. Our film has been covered by nearly every major games site in the world, inclusive of IGN, Kotaku, Joystiq, Penny Arcade and many others.
