A type of FanWork that, like the FanFic, consists of an original story utilizing the characters and/or setting from an established franchise. Unlike the FanVid, the Fan Film isn't just a re-editing and redubbing of existing footage, but rather an entirely ''new'' work consisting of footage that has been shot or animated by the producer(s) of the film themselves. Fan Films vary wildly in quality, from poorly-made Flash cartoons to sophisticated, big-budget epics replete with expert fight choreography and convincing special effects. (Most Fan Films tend to fall somewhere in between.) Thanks to increased computer processing power and the ready accessibility of advanced editing, graphics, and music-making programs, it is becoming increasingly easy for ordinary people to produce Fan Films, some of which are every bit as good in quality as the professional productions on which they're based. (Of course, just like with any other form of FanWork, SturgeonsLaw is in full effect here...)

It should be noted, like with {{Fan Vid}}s and other works derived from established characters and stories, that issues of UsefulNotes/{{Copyright}} will crop up from time to time. Since Fan Films tend to be fairly long and extensive in nature, it's a lot harder to handwave these issues away under Fair Use, although many companies will turn a blind eye to Fan Films if they see them as free promotion. There ''are'' exceptions to this rule, of course. The fan film ''Film/{{Damnatus}}'', made by German fans of the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' franchise, cost more than 10,000 euros and took months to film, but Games Workshop, the owners of ''Warhammer 40000'', have refused to allow the film to be shown (despite lengthy negotiations with the film's creators) due to the mores of German copyright law. However, it was subsequently leaked onto the Internet.

Fan Films can be commonly found on video-sharing sites such as Website/YouTube and [[http://www.dailymotion.com/ Dailymotion.]] Original fan cartoons produced with UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash can be found at Website/{{Newgrounds}}.

See also FanSequel, which is the video game version of this phenomenon, (although many Fan Films ''are'' based on video game franchises.) This trope is not to be confused with {{Machinima}}, which are original movies made using images and movements from existing video games.


* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise boasts a whole host of Fan Films, many of which are just one-on-one lightsaber duels, lasting only a few minutes, with [[ExcusePlot no extraneous plot whatsoever]]. However, some Fan Films, ''do'' have epic stories attached to them. [[http://www.theforce.net/fanfilms/ Fanfilms.com]] is a good place to find and learn about them.
** Kevin Rubio's ''Film/{{Troops}}'' is usually credited as the TropeCodifier of this media, and possibly even the TropeMaker. A dual parody of ''Star Wars'' and ''Series/{{Cops}},'' it boasts professional quality costumes and special effects. It's also hilarious and puts a couple of major incidents from the first film in a whole new light.
*** A sequel series exists called ''I.M.P.S.'', following an imperial carrier group through its various assignments. Features voiceovers by [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]]!
** The ''WebVideo/ChadVader'' shorts could fit here as well.
*** Creator/GeorgeLucas [[ApprovalOfGod himself loves the series]] and Lucasarts were so impressed that [[PromotedFanboy Matt Sloan got hired as the official voice of Darth Vader]] for ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed''.
** The ''Pink Five'' series also has a reasonably large following. It does a decent job of putting a hilarious spin on the story without abusing the canon too much.
*** The main character is a kinda-sorta canon immigrant now. She has a cameo in Zahn's novel ''Allegiance''. Okay it's a FandomNod, but we can still dream dammit!
** There's also the ''Film/RyanVsDorkman'' films, which, though they are the above-mentioned "lightsaber duels with no relation to plot" films, have ''very'' well-done choreography.
*** Ryan vs. Dorkman was created for and was the winner of the first annual Lightsaber Choreography Contest (LCC). The contest is specifically judged on the quality of the fight and has been held every year since 2002.
** ''Film/HardwareWars''. It came out only seven months after the original release of ''Film/ANewHope'' and was the first ''Star Wars'' fan film to make it big.
** ''WebVideo/StarWarsUncut'' takes this to new heights, by asking people around the internet to redo snippets of the original, 15 seconds each, no matter the budget. The end result manages to be its own beast, while paying tribute to the original film.
** ''Film/StarWarsRevelations'', one of the most [[EpicMovie ambitious]] -- and most acclaimed -- fan films out there.
** ''WebVideo/StarWarsDownunder'' puts a uniquely Australian twist on the Star Wars universe. The evil Darth Drongo has seized all the beer on the planet, and it's up to Jedi Knight Merve Bushwacker and his rebel allies to get it back!
** The Dark Resurrection series is a pair of Italian fan films set several centuries after the first Star Wars trilogy, and were funded solely through crowdfunding.
* As mentioned above, ''Warhammer 40K'' has ''Film/{{Damnatus}}'', which follows the agents of the Imperial inquisition as they try to stop a daemon returning to the planet Sancta Heroica.
** ''Film/TheLordInquisitor'' isn't out yet as of spring 2017, but already looks tons better than that official ''Ultramarines'' piece
* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise also has its share of Fan Films:
** ''[[http://www.darkarmada.nl/ Star Trek: Dark Armada]]'' is one of the many series sprung up around ''Franchise/StarTrek'', of Dutch origin.
** ''WebVideo/StarTrekNewVoyages'', later retitled ''Star Trek: Phase II'', is a series of Fan Films that continue the adventures of the original ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' crew, with new actors in place of Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the gang. Its quality is such that one episode "World Enough And Time", was nominated for a UsefulNotes/HugoAward.
** ''WebAnimation/StarTrekSpecter'' is a feature-length FanFilm starring younger [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the ''TNG'' cast, with special {{cameo}} appearances by Data and Troi. It takes place in the latter part of the TNG era.
** ''[[FanFic/HiddenFrontier Star Trek]] [[http://www.hiddenfrontier.com Hidden Frontier]]''features a mix of {{Canon}} characters and original characters, and is set post-''Film/StarTrekInsurrection''. Notable for its storylines involving gay crew members.
** ''[[WebVideo/StarshipFarragut Starship]] [[http://www.starshipfarragut.com Farragut]]'' is set in the era of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' (and even has a bit of crossover with ''WebVideo/StarTrekNewVoyages'').
** The short film ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W1_8IV8uhA Prelude to Axanar,]]'' which was an attempt to put out a big-budget product through crowdfunding. It uses professional actors, several of them ''Trek'' veterans who had played recurring characters, and exceeded its funding goals enough to make a full-length movie.
** ''WebVideo/StarTrekRenegades'' is often labeled as a "fan film," though the involvement of real ''Franchise/StarTrek'' actors and its being produced by ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' actor Tim Russ make it up for debate whether this should be categorized as a high-budget FanFilm or a low-budget web series.
** ''Sev Trek: Pus in Boots'' is an Australian 3D-animation parody of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.
* ''WebAnimation/StarWreck'' has gone from being a space battle animated using early home computer technology, to a spoof of epic proportions with effects that easily rival most big-budget Hollywood productions. The latest film, ''[[Film/StarWreckInThePirkinning In the Pirkinning]]'' is also the most successful Finnish movie ever made.
* The ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' video game franchise has many Fan Films, ranging from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwxVjNLPVhI silly]] to the serious. However, the copyright bogeyman led to ''WebVideo/TheHeroOfTime'' getting a CeaseAndDesist from Creator/{{Nintendo}} and is no longer distributed online by its creators. It can still be found with a quick Google search, though.
** ''WebVideo/TheLegendOfZeldaTheSageOfDarkness'' is another example. Not as well known as ''The Hero of Time'', but better received.
* [[http://www.comicbookbin.com/fanfilms.html The Comic Book Bin]] hosts a great many Fan Films. It provides reviews of and news about them as well.
* ''[[http://www.racsofilms.com/QL.htm A Leap To Di For]]'' is an awesome ''Series/QuantumLeap'' fanfilm about Sam attempting to save Princess Diana, amongst other things.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' have a lot of fanfilms what about the generic setting making it a little easier to do, yet one of the good ones can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mUjssn86h4 here ]].
** Another example is ''WebVideo/WeepingWillow''. Watch it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-xwmNDuGgI here]].
* ''WebVideo/TheIndianaJonesInterrogations'' is a seven-installment ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' fan film mini-series on YouTube and Vimeo, produced by a small but passionate sect of Indy fans. It is pretty unorthodox for a fan film of the character in that it uses a FoundFootage format. Each installment is designed to resemble old, damaged interrogation tapes from the 1930's, that depict Indy being brutally questioned while in Nazi custody. Also unorthodox in that the focus is not on action, but on exploring Indy's psyche, and which includes patching up some of the plot holes presented by the films. While it only features one character on camera (Indy), it has a supporting cast of off-screen characters too, and is heavily influenced by the format of the early episodes of WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs.
* Trailers for ''Fanfic/MetalGearSolidPhilanthropy'' have been generally well-met.
* ''[[http://www.constellationstudios.org/article.php3?id_article=377 Shamelady]]'', a French-made ''Film/JamesBond'' fan film, truly deserves the full marks. Coming in at a whopping 50+ minutes, and even having a public screening in France!
* ''[[WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC I'm a Marvel... And I'm a DC]]'' by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ItsJustSomeRandomGuy ItsJustSomeRandomGuy]] is a popular fan-made series featuring action figures of famous Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} and Creator/DCComics characters. Originally, it started as a spoof of the "I'm a Mac... And I'm a PC" ads, with Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/SpiderMan comparing their respective film series. Eventually, it evolved to include other characters, such as Franchise/{{Batman}}, [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk the Hulk]], ComicBook/IronMan, etc., and the "After Hours" series, originally mean to depict what the characters do when they're not making snarky remarks about each others' movies, developed its own involved plotline. Regardless, it's still pretty funny.
* ''Fullmetal Fantasy'' is a short ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' Fan Film written and directed by Creator/VicMignogna, the American voice actor for Edward Elric, starring most of the US vocal cast playing their characters[[note]]The exceptions are Armstrong and Alphonse, because it would literally be impossible for Creator/ChristopherSabat and Creator/AaronDismuke to play them; instead they dubbed their voices over an actor playing Armstrong and a life-sized Al statue on loan from Bandai.[[/note]] with FMA fans playing all the extras. In it, an FMA fan (played by Mignogna) dreams that he's becoming Edward and the FMA characters are showing up all over the real world. It's a CrowningMomentOfAwesome (and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Funny]]) for everyone involved, but rights issues mean it'll never see widespread release. On the other hand, Vic has gotten official permission to screen it at conventions as long as it doesn't get [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil videotaped and uploaded]].
** Vic followed this up with ''The Fullmetal and Flame Show,'' made because Creator/TravisWillingham (Roy Mustang) wasn't available for the first film. The whole thing is a giant parody of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Itchy and Scratchy]], where Mustang and Ed (played by their respective merchandise) get into various ridiculous situations, with Edward getting revenge on Mustang in increasingly CrossesTheLineTwice manners (tricking him into a blender, using him as bait for a shark, telling him that a microwave was a soundstage to record a song album and ''setting him on fire''). Vic teased about the film for years before finally airing it at Otakon 2010.
* "Patient J" is a very popular Franchise/{{Batman}} fan film about the Joker. The film focuses on a psychiatrist interviewing the Joker and gives the Joker's perspective on major events in the Batman comic book timeline and on his relationship with Batman personally. The film was written and directed by Aaron Schoenke specifically for his friend, Paul Molnar, to play the Joker.
* ''Film/BatmanDeadEnd'' is a eight-minute long fan video that puts Batman against The Joker and later...[[spoiler:the Franchise/{{Alien}} and the Franchise/{{Predator}}]].
** It's also one of the very few (if only) to get official toys made for it--namely, of [[spoiler:some of the disctinctive Predators, such as Big Red]].
* ''Film/BatmanPuppetMaster'', a fan film set in Franchise/{{Batman}}'s ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' universe meant to bridge the gap between ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''. Possibly intended as part of a series due to the SequelHook at the end. Features Nolanverse re-imaginings of classic villains The Riddler and The Ventriloquist. Can be seen [[http://batmanpuppetmaster.com/ here]].
* "Browncoats: Redemption" is a ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' fan film taking place after the events of ''Serenity''. The film was created on a much higher budget than most fan films and the film was used to get money for a charity. The film has gotten high amounts of praise, most notably from Creator/JossWhedon himself.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has had a number of fan films made, especially during the intervening years between the cancellation in 1989 and the 2005 revival. Most notable among them is the four part serial ''TimeRift'', directed by Jon Blum (and featuring him as the 7th Doctor), who went on to become an AscendedFanboy and write several Eighth Doctor novels with his wife Kate Orman. The Creation of Main/YouTube has only allowed for more to be made, and shining examples of modern ''Who'' fan films are the Main/LongRunner ''WebVideo/TheLittleRedDoctor'' (started in 2013) and the comparatively recent ''WebVideo/DoctorWhoGuardian'', the latter of which has also spawned a [[Creator/BigFinish Big Finish]]-like spin-off audio series titled ''DoctorWhoOdissey''. Both series feature Doctors far in the future from the perspective of the BBC show, and often make up for their just-sightly-above average production values with crisp writing that in some cases manages to rise to the level of the best episodes of ''Who''.
* ''WebVideo/ThereWillBeBrawl'' is an extremely well made live-action fan film of the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, split into episodes. Boasting amazing writing and costume design that ranges from above-average to mind blowing. Incidentally, it also turns the setting into a cynical urban wasteland with most of the cast members cast as drug addicts, whores or worse, but that's neither here nor there.
* There exists a fan-made film version of the first {{Literature/Dune}} novel by Frank Herbert, made by a few fans living in Spain with a cast of the ''entire village''. Visually, it's a cross between the atmosphere of the '84 Lynch version and the Arabic influences of the 2000 Sci-Fi miniseries. It's also more faithful than either of them. Unfortunately, the HLP (Herbert Limited Partnership; the company that deals with the franchise since Frank's death) completely shut down the project and threatened to sue them, even though it took them over five years to make and over $10,000 of their own money and, they intended to release ''for free''.
* ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}} vs the Kaiju Killer'' takes elements from many of the 70s movies and makes them more credible, such as the Black Hole Aliens, Hedorah and Gabara now as a creepy EmotionEater. Plus a damn great sci-fi story about morality in a CrapsackWorld.
* In 1992, a group called "Alpha Dog Productions" created ''The Green Goblin's Last Stand'', a fifty-minute SpiderMan fan film adapting "The Night Gwen Stacy Died", on a budget of less than $400. They also somehow managed to get a classically trained actor to play Norman Osborn. The results are... well, amazing. At the moment, it's easiest to find it online -- the video on SPIKE seems to have the creators' go-ahead.
* [[https://vimeo.com/79697570 Truth in Journalism]] is a fan made found footage mockumentary (done by the same guy who made Film/DirtyLaundry) in the style of Film/ManBitesDog that takes place in the MarvelUniverse during TheEighties involving [[Franchise/SpiderMan Eddie Brock]] making a documentary about the underbelly of New York. At one point, the film crew tells him that they don't have the budget to finish the film and refuse to accept Eddie's money, lest they compromise the film's integrity. [[spoiler:{{Comicbook/Venom}} [[KillEmAll is not pleased.]]]] And then, the film ends with [[spoiler:some footage from the start of the shoot: Eddie and the crew members stumbling across a crew filming an execution being done by Bullseye]].
* [[http://www.halopedia.org/Operation_Chastity Operation Chastity]] was a planned ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' fan film that was never finished. The plot would have centered on a platoon of UNSC Marines operating in Argentina, fighting the survivors of a crashed Covenant ship. The film's director spent tens of thousands of dollars of his own money on the project, which did produce a script, a dozen prop weapons, and a fully working Warthog jeep. Oh yeah, and Al Matthews, the man who played [[Film/{{Aliens}} Sgt. Apone]], was on the cast at one point.
* ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' has spawned many of these, some a lot better than others. ''Film/BornOfHope'' is a 70 minute prequel tied into the appendices of Tolkien's book, telling the story of Aragorn's parents, filmed in a similar style to the Peter Jackson films. Another good film is ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H09xnhlCQU Hunt for Gollum]]'', which is set during the story of the book. Both these films look highly professional, while being made on low budgets, and have been highly acclaimed by critics.
* ''Mega Man'' had a [[Film/MegaMan fan film]] by Eddie Lebron released on Screwattack.com.
** From the same team, a [[WebVideo/{{Sonic}} Sonic the Hedgehog]] [[http://www.sonicfanfilm.com/ fanfilm,]] with [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Jaleel]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM White]] [[RoleReprisal REPRISING]] his role as the [[SonicTheHedgehog title character.]]
* Even ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' has [[WebVideo/FalloutNukaBreak spawned a fan film]], this one being ''[[http://nukabreak.com Nuka Break]]'', starring a [[BigFatFuture Vault 10]] Dweller with a Nuka Cola addiction, a recently freed slave, and a hedonistic ghoul.
** There's also ''WebVideo/FalloutLanius'', which chronicles the rise of the titular Legate of Caesar's Legion from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas.''
* The ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' franchise of films and TV shows has inspired at least two notable fan films, "The Real Ghostbusters" downloadable [[http://www.therealghostbusters.net/ here]] and "Return of the Ghostbusters" having a trailer [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNv27pEJ7qU here]].
** The Louisiana Ghostbusters had a fan film contest which had a few enrties, many of which were location based, such as ''Fanfic/GhostbustersSLC'', U.K. Ghostbusters, and Italy Ghostbusters, though there were plenty of others as well. They can all be seen [[http://www.goldenghostawards.com/?page_id=262 here]].
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' has webseries Street Fighter: the Later Years, Street Fighter Legacy, Street Fighter High (and its sequel musical), Street Fighter: Beginning's End, and Balrog: Behind the Glory.
* There are ''two'' fan films of ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'', a sequel and a prequel:
** There's now a Portal fan film entitled ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NorZUFfpvC0 Outside Aperture]]'' which is set after the original ending of the first game and completely ignores ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. There's very little dialogue, the only character is Chell (who has some issues due to her time as a test subject), and apart from flashbacks it's set entirely inside an extremely bare apartment, yet somehow it works.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4drucg1A6Xk&ob=av3e Portal: No Escape]]'' shows Chell as a prisoner who tries to break out of Aperture Science, [[spoiler: which turns out to be her first test.]] It's a darker take on the series compared to both the above fan film and ''Portal'' itself.
* ''WebVideo/FindMakarov'', based on the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series. Notable in that [[FandomNod a chance reference to it]] at the end of ''Modern Warfare 3'' has spawned near-endless debate on whether it's canon to the actual series.
* A film version (found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5eUIc1dTWY here]]) of the (in)famous fan fiction ''FanFic/MyImmortal''.
* Timberwolf West is a professional production company that has made some high quality ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' Fan Films, such as ''[[https://vimeo.com/5648794 The Storm]]'' and ''[[https://vimeo.com/42442898 The Obsession.]]''
* ''WebVideo/TronDestiny'' is a four-minute short film (doubling as a [[RealTrailerFakeMovie fake trailer]] for the upcoming third TRON movie) that asks what would happen if a RealLife hacker got into ENCOM's files and built their own deresolution laser. [[spoiler:It turns out to be precisely what the MCP ordered.]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yOAZux8ip8 Red Sand]]'': A ''VideoGame/MassEffect'' Prequel fan film starring Mark Meer (the voice actor of Commander Shepard) as Grissom.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G0j_Huv2Fg Live Action Toy Story]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a full-length live-action]] ShotForShotRemake of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''.
* ''FanFilm/FreddyVsGhostbusters'' pits Freddy Krueger from ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' against the Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}. A man called Neill who lives on Elm Street is haunted by Freddy, so he calls in the Ghostbusters for help. Among other things, Freddy repeats the "I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy!" phone gag on a balding middle-aged man by mistake, the Ghostbusters call Jared from Subway for advice by BreakingTheFourthWall, and [[spoiler:Freddy kills Jared.]] Three seperate endings were shot. In the standard ending [[TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin the Ghostbusters defeat Freddy]] and trap him in their container, but in the first alternate one [[TheBadGuyWins Freddy kills all three of them]] and does a VictoryDance, and in the second alternate ending Freddy and the Ghostbusters go outside and [[GainaxEnding do a dance and song number in the street]].
* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet''
** The feature-length ''[[http://archive.org/details/FreddysReturnANightmareReborn Freddy's Return: A Nightmare Reborn]]''. Set before ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare'', it focuses on Freddy's last would-be victim before he got baked extra-crispy. For having no budget, it's extremely well-done and occasionally pretty creepy.
** ''KRUEGER'' is a four-part miniseries by Blinky Productions that focuses on Freddy Krueger before he was burned to death. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1S1tAaLZo9w A Tale from Elm Street]] is about his arrest and interrogation. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVv49r6XIIk Another Tale from Elm Street]] is about one of his murders. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqJvLMz8Uxk A Walk Through Elm Street]] offers look into Freddy's mind. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osi4yeEpG00 The Slasher from Elm Street]] about his relationship with his daughter Kathryn.
* Shippers might want to check out some of the so-called "porn parodies" which are clearly just an excuse to make a {{Lemon}} FanFic on film without getting sued as they don't contain any laughs. Examples include [[http://www.tlavideo.com/raw-the-sex-files-a-dark-xxx-parody/p-296052-4 The Sex Files: A Dark XXX Parody]] which [[ExcusePlot has a rather basic plot]], but you do get a well-filmed scene of a Mulder and Scully lookalike getting it on.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt10nbVSerY Flight from Shadow]] is a 22-minute adaptation of one chapter of [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime The Eye of the World]] by a group of fans eager to finally see Robert Jordan's world and characters up on the screen. Except for its length, it could pass for a Hollywood movie, with fans having poured countless hours into building professional-looking sets, props and costumes.
* ''Film/JudgeMinty'' is a 2013 fan film based on the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' comics which follows the tale of a secondary character from the comics, Judge Minty. After several decades as an active street judge Minty is pulled off active duty, and then decides to head out into the irradiated wasteland beyond the Mega City to bring law to the lawless.
* The same team behind ''Judge Minty'' later made an adaptation based on ''ComicBook/StrontiumDog'', another ComicBook/TwoThousandAD property, which is arguably even better. The fight scenes kick ass, the FX is once again impressive by fan film standards, and there's some nice bits of humor between Johnny Alpha and his partner Wulf.
* In 2015, a ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' fanflim known as ''Power/Rangers'' featured a DarkerAndEdgier and BloodierAndGorier take on the characters, featuring Creator/KateeSackhoff and [[Series/DawsonsCreek James Van Der Beek]]. Eventually, it was revealed to be a parody of Darker And Edgier reboots of cheesy kid's cartoons. However, not everyone was a fan on it as Saban tried to take it down and Creator/JasonDavidFrank stated he thought it was too dark (though he's not against a PG-13 version). Conversely, Austin St. John, Creator/AmyJoJohnson, and Steve Cardenas enjoyed it, the latter even making light of Rocky's AdaptationalVillainy.
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZLightOfHope'' is a miniseries adaptation of ''Anime/DragonBallZTheHistoryOfTrunks''.
* ''Film/{{Grayson}}'' is RealTrailerFakeMovie about Dick Grayson becoming Robin again to find out who killed Batman after Batman seemingly dies.
* ''WebVideo/TheVeronicaExclusive'' is a fanmade VlogSeries adaptation of ''{{Film/Heathers}}'', setting it in the modern day.
* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-1RMKdWz8M Fan-O-Rama: A Futurama Fan Film]] is a fan-made LiveActionAdaptation of {{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}.
* In 2017, director Jason Gerbay released a [[https://www.facebook.com/TheMask2017/ fan-made reboot]] of ''Main/TheMask'' based on the [[ComicBook/TheMask comics]] in which a married couple and their friend who find the titular item and use it for their personal gain.

[[folder:Flash Cartoon]]
* The [[WebAnimation/AwesomeSeries "Awesome" series]] of video game shorts by [[http://egoraptor.webmoron.net/ Egoraptor,]] some of which have been featured on MTV's ''G-Hole'' an online video game show.
* [[http://legendaryfrog.com/movies_released.php Legendary Frog]] is another prolific producer of flash films, including the ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' parody [[http://onering.legendaryfrog.com/movies_orse_w.php One Ring to Rule Them All]] and its [[http://onering.legendaryfrog.com/movies_or2_w.php sequel]].
* ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' is an {{Animesque}} flash series that isn't really based on any existing franchise, but it borrows heavily from works like ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (in its use of religious symbolism). It's also a mash-up of Eastern philosophy and Western pop culture, and has small animated homages to ''Fight Club'', the ''Matrix'' and ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' featuring the characters from the series playing the roles of characters in the homaged films.
* Elena Hull's ''WebAnimation/TokyoCrystalMew,'' a (so far) 3 episode (4 if you count the episode 1 remake) ''Anime/TokyoMewMew'' fan series, is well known for being a shining example of what ''not'' to do when making your own fan film. (Don't say that too loud though, or you will be bombarded with cries of [[LetsSeeYOUDoBetter "letz c u make ur own anime!!1"]] from the author's friends.)
* ''WebAnimation/FinalFightingFantasy'', a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover following the exploits of the heroes of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''s I through VII after the ends of their games, as they start to turn on each other. Probably best remembered for being A) of an AnyoneCanDie persuasion, and B) [[LeftHanging effectively discontinued right before the]] GrandFinale.
* In three words: ''WebAnimation/BartTheGeneral''. This utter MindScrew made by a man simply known as Famicon is parts WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs.
* ''WebAnimation/GuestFromTheFuture2'', sequel to Soviet SciFi classic ''Series/GuestFromTheFuture'' set a few years after the film, in which a teenaged Alisa recruits Kolya to save the future from Literature/HarryPotter, who has stupefied humanity. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXR9r2-9euw See here.]]
* Many animations of the video game series ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' are made in a program called create.swf, aka Walfas. But if there is any that should count as a movie, it's the series/movie ''WebAnimation/DiamondInTheRoughTouhou''. The story follows a boy (a [[ParodyStu parody]] of the typical SelfInsertFic MartyStu) who is gapped to the magical land of [[DeathWorld Gensokyo]] by the [[HumanoidAbomination border demon Yukari]] upon the promise of power and freedom, and [[ForegoneConclusion in three months will be killed]] by the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent celestial Tenshi]]. The story [[HowWeGotHere takes place between these two events]]. The film is ''[[EpicMovie four hours long]]'', [[TwoActStructure split into two two-hour reels]] (with the first reel available on YouTube as a series). The full film can be seen on the creator's Ustream, complete with an intermission and AudienceParticipation.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMEeVPAsox8 Judge Dredd: Superfiend]] is a six part miniseries done in the style of Saturday morning Cartoons with a bit of DerangedAnimation all set in the ComicBook/JudgeDredd universe. It covers different parts of the comic, from the rise of Judge Death to Dredd's relationship with his niece.

[[folder:Computer Generated]]
* ''[[http://noescape.rateofinjury.com/main.htm Silent Hill: No Escape]]'' is a CG series based on Konami's horror franchise. (It's often mistakenly called ''Silent Hill 5'', although it has nothing to do with the original creators, or any of the canon ''Franchise/SilentHill'' games released after it.)
* ''WebAnimation/{{Haloid}}'' and the ''WesternAnimation/DeadFantasy'' series, two CG [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny Ultimate Showdowns of Ultimate Destiny]] by Creator/MontyOum.
* ''WebAnimation/WilliamCountry'', one of the few films to be nuked off the face of the internet (except for one part, and said nuking is becuase the maker, Hijotee, only put the vids on youtube, a site that would '''not''' allow even regular fan film, due to it's strict copyright rules). It's a ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' film... yet it's not. It's main pairing is "Cody" and this O.C. named Joshua, who looks a lot like Cody (see the film, link on the page). It is also notable for having a user ''that takes crack''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9RXW5gtydI ''TRANSFORMERS Generation One'']], made by professional animator Randall Ng (who had worked on games like ''Justice League Heroes'') with voices performed by Dr. Smoov. Based upon the [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers original cartoon series]] it won first place at the 2009 BOTCON Film Festival.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_N9RL1qRWo Batman: New Times]]'' is a student based project by Dave School which features some impressive voice talent, including Creator/AdamWest and Creator/MarkHamill [[RoleReprisal reprising the respective roles of]] Series/{{Batman}} and [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries the Joker]], and Creator/DickVanDyke as Commissioner Gordon.
* ''WebVideo/PokemonApokelypse'' is a fan film trailer of a never to be released live action Anime/{{Pokemon}} film. It takes place in a dark future where Pokémon training is illegal and driven underground.
* Zelda: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hp8dQhyJRBs Dark Sage]], a fan film series that attempts to adapt certain elements of Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda into CG, in a similar fashion to Creator/MontyOum's films. The end result looks like ReBoot, [[SpecialEffectFailure to]] [[UncannyValley put]] [[AdaptationDecay it]] [[FightSceneFailure lightly.]]

* Neil Cicierega's ''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals'' series of fan films features hand-puppet versions of the principal characters of the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' franchise. Originally a Flash cartoon (and now a live-action series), the series has given birth to many [[MemeticMutation Internet memes]], and it stands as one of the series' most ''intentionally'' funny fan works.
* Paul "Otaking" Johnson is in the process of animating his own ''Series/DoctorWho'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPCrGsya1ZI anime]].
* ''WebAnimation/FantasyKaleidoscope'' is an animated ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' work that would not look out of place when compared to professionally created anime. The animation and sound effects are done by the fan [[http://manpukujinja.blog135.fc2.com/ Manpuku Jinja]], albeit without any 'official' voice acting, instead using subtitles. Six episodes have been released so far, with many fandubs provided in both Japanese and English on NND and YouTube respectively. Or both.
* Also from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom is ''[[FanFic/TheSealedEsotericHistory Hifuu Club Activity Record ~The Sealed Esoteric History~]]'' that like the aforementioned ''Fantasy Kaleidoscope'' boasts incredibly high animation standards. Unlike ''Fantasy Kaleidoscope'', it also ended up getting a proper dub with professional voice actors (although it started with sub only at first).
