This is how one makes a fan film: Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy


Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy from Hive Division on Vimeo.

What do you get when you mix ingenious film making, lots of passion, and a few brilliant minds: Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy. A three part saga made with a budget just under $15,000, fanmade Philanthropy gives videogame fans the melodrama in live action form. The history behind the production is just as dramatic, but gives birth to an amazing presentation and talent.

We’ve seen fan shorts before, but not full features. I’m sure we have a talent pool here at DarkDiamond capable of similar feats…

The OST of MGS: Philanthropy can be found here.

And no Estelle, we will not make a yaoi film.
