Fan Film Friday: Elfquest / Transformers
Jan 20, 2012 by     3 Comments    Posted In: Fan Film Friday

Welcome back to another edition of Fan Film Friday!  This week, it’s going to be a little different with the videos.  Usually, I’ll put up two films that have something in common.  Either the characters come from the same comic company, or they’re part of a team, or the general theme of that week’s FFF is the same. Today, it’s a little different.  With our first film, we’re going to explore the exotic and wonderful world of Elfquest, and with the second, we’re going to take a huge leap into the future with the technology of Transformers!  Without leaving you in the Stone Age, let’s take a look at our first film. 

Started in 1978, Elfquest has endured self publishing by its creators, a stint with Marvel, and also a run with DC Comics.  A world, not so unlike our own, having two moons in the night, Elfquest focuses on several different groups of characters.  The Wolfriders, The Sun Folk, The Gliders, and the Go-Backs all serve as major and minor characters in the epic saga that is Elfquest.  Very fantastic, very beautiful, and majestic stories are told in those pages.  A very loyal fan base has evolved over the years, which in turn brings us to this fan film.

Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rose have brought the fans of Elfquest something rather beautiful (and I’m not just talking about the ladies in the film either).  Though short, I feel it brings the spirit of Elfquest as close to the big screen as we can get it.  It just looks amazing, and done very professionally.  If you’re a fan of Elfquest, you’re going to love this.  If you’re not, this may be a great jumping point for you.  One more fun fact before you watch:  All issues of Elfquest are available for free at the official Elfquest site.  Enjoy the film and happy reading!


With all seriousness aside now, this next film is just a load of fun.  This is some stop motion animation at its best, and how better to do it than with Transformers!  Some days, Optimus just needs to be put in his place, ya know?  Sit back and enjoy this great stop motion fan film and I’ll see you all next week on Fan Film Friday!

    That Elfquest trailer actually made me interested in the comics.

    That’s cool! I read a few of them when I was younger, but it was my buddy Jason who was very much into Elfquest. His passion made me curious about the series.

    The stop motion was stellar work…especially the mid driviing transformation!
