The team behind the spectacular Judge Minty are back and this time they are turning their sights on one of my fave 2000AD Characters – Strontium Dog.
STRONTIUM DOG FAN FILM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The team behind the unofficial Judge Dredd based fan film, Judge Minty, have set their sights on bringing another of John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s creations to the screen, with a Strontium Dog fan film!
They’re hoping to build on the success of Judge Minty, which was screened for free at numerous international festivals and conventions. Going on to receive over 450k views on youtube and receiving positive comments from critics, fans and 2000 AD creators alike.
Co Director, Steve Green commented “It was a chance meeting with John [Wagner] at a convention that got the ball rolling. After seeing Minty, John mentioned that we should do Strontium Dog next. It was only a passing comment, but we took it as a ‘direct commandment’ and began work the next day.”
Prop and Costume Creator, Daniel Carey-George added “We’ve been lucky enough to receive unofficial input from comic creators, including invaluable visual guidance from Carlos Ezquerra himself.”
So far the team have released a few production stills and have also commissioned a private unofficial artwork from Carlos.
Steven Sterlacchini said “When the filming schedule hit the half way mark, we wanted something to give the cast, crew and supporters a bit of a boost, and the commission from Carlos certainly hits the spot!”
This project is a NOT FOR PROFIT fan film based on the 2000 AD story, Strontium Dog.
The makers of this film have no association with Rebellion or 2000 AD.
