|Paula Rhodes as Nightfall|
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!
