While Hollywood is hard at work on its second attempt at a live-action “Masters of the Universe” movie, fan Daniel Benedict is busy trying to fund his own MOTU project, entitled “Fall of Grayskull.” I always dig these efforts and I wanted you all to take a look at it as well.
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
“Fall of Grayskull” is a live action fan short film about He-Man and Skeletor, along with various heroes and villains from Planet Eternia, battling over the secrets and powers of the mysterious Castle Grayskull. This film will be a parody with the intent of commenting on the Masters of the Universe. This will be a film made by fans for the fans. If you loved He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoons, comics, and toys growing up, this is your chance to be a part of He-Man history! franchise.
Benedict is no stranger to MOTU fandom as his original character Castle Grayskullman was made into a figure in Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line.
Benedict is currently trying to fund the project on Kickstarter and if you’d like to invest in it, here’s the link. Beyond financial assistance, Benedict is seeking aid from set designers, prop designers, 3D artists/animators, visual effect artists, composers, etc. He’s aiming to get the film wrapped up for September 2015 and DVD/Blu-rays will be shipped in December before eventually putting the film online for free viewing.
