Here’s a video going viral that deserves to be famous. It’s called Lazy Teenage Superheroes and they say it had a budget of $300. If that’s right then the effects they achieve are pretty awesome. Michael Ashton also gets mega cook points for creating this, directing, editting and making the special effects. Ashton doesn’t star in the cast but you can check out his site here.
Once again I find myself noticing just how close “home generated” views are to meeting TV standards. Heck. I’d suggest that LTS (Lazy Teenage Superheroes) actually beats some of the pish I’ve seen trying to call itself sci-fi. I imagine the challenge is entirely due to schedules, sallaries and turning content into money.
