ElfQuest Fan Imagining - An ElfQuest Fan's Dream Come True

ElfQuest has been around a long time, since 1978 to be exact. In the beginning, creators Richard and Wendy Pini self-published the comic that told the stories about a group of elves who were displaced from their home. They were on a journey – or a quest – and it was an incredible one. The elves were fierce and brave. This included the females of the tribe. It was an inspiration to many, including two talented women that were actresses, producers, and very familiar with creating web series. These two women were talking about ElfQuest on Twitter one day, and the idea for a fan imagining of the beloved ElfQuest was born. Directors/producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes took the project to IndieGoGo and brought it to life.

ElfQuest has a big fan base. It would take one to keep the comic going for over 30 years. Yes, 30 years. That period has plenty of stories to choose from. In fact, an actual big studio version of ElfQuest keeps coming on to the table, only to get knocked off. Warner Bros. currently holds the rights and progress is inching forward. One reason Thorpe and Rhodes wanted to create this fan trailer is to have a rally point for fans. They wanted to have something to point at and say – look, fans are excited and want to see an ElfQuest movie happen. They're starting off on the right foot.

The teaser for the almost five minute fan trailer was premiered at WonderCon on Friday, April 1. It has received over 50,000 views since. Fans are drooling and not just because the teaser featured scantily clad women with elf ears. Thorpe and Rhodes are fans of the series, and they took the time to do everything right. The costumes were sewn by hand, accessories were carefully reproduced, and the elf ears were specially sculpted to match Wendy Pini's design. Actresses were cast specifically because they looked like the elves. I had the opportunity to visit set on the second day of filming. The location was secluded, and the variety of sets available was ideal. Every scene was shot carefully and as many times as necessary. The wigs and costumes were all of the highest quality, and the make-up was perfect. Even up close, I could barely see the seams on the elf ears. Everyone on set was obviously happy to be a part of the project.

That love and respect for ElfQuest comes through in the completed fan trailer. I recommend watching it more than once. You'll want to look at the costumes and characters again and again. If you are a fan of ElfQuest, you'll be able to spot some shots right out of the comics. Don't forget to check out the gallery of production stills on their site!

      This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
