Spider-Man Miles Morales Fan Film (Video)
I’ve always wondered why we don’t see more Spider-Man fan films especially when there is so much material and so many fans out there that want to see the web head done right. I think the major hang up is probably getting the special effects and movements of Spider-Man just right. However, this awesome fan film takes a different approach to the wall crawler and doesn’t actually show any wall crawling but still manages to keep things exciting and interesting.
Spider-Man Lives: A Miles Morales Story comes to us from the awesome folks at Bard Tales Productions, LLC and delivers up something that is pretty compelling. As much as I love Peter Parker and the original Spider-Man story I also am a big fan of Mile Morales. What I find so interesting about his Spider-Man character is that he didn’t actually want to be a hero at all. Unlike Peter who embraced his responsibilities, Miles rejected them at first.
Spider-Man lives touches on this a bit but what really stands out to me is the acting and cinematography. Both are really well executed which can be some of the major pitfalls when it comes to fan films. The short film runs about nine minutes long but manages to keep things moving at a decent pace without rushing it. Personally I think the fight choreography could use some work and a better representation of Miles could have been chosen, but all in all I really enjoyed it.
So check out Spider-Man Lives: A Miles Morales Story and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Did you enjoy this short fan film and do you think a Mile Morales live action series would be something you would watch on a regular basis?
