Fallout: Lanius is the blood soaked origin story of Legate Lanius, the primary antagonist from 2010's Fallout: New Vegas.
The story: 'On the brink of ruin, the Hidebark people are about to be wiped out by the slaving organisation, Caesar's Legion. However, their most ruthless warrior would prefer death to dishonour. "Fallout: Lanius" will recount how a single man brings ruin to his people due to his lust for bloodshed and victory.'
We are a group of experienced and passionate filmmakers from Australia, who want to bring this exciting and gory tale to life. To do this, we need to raise $10,000 to cover production costs.
The film will be more than just another Fallout Fan Film. We want to create a small piece of cinema from the Fallout Universe - and we need your help to do it.
We have also secured Original Fallout Voice Actor Mitch Lewis to reprise his role from "Fallout: New Vegas"!
We've comissioned extensive design work on creating the world of Fallout: Lanius. We want this project to look like a feature film - and a good one at that. We've spent months on the script and visual design elements. Below, is the first piece of concept art of Lanius as a Tribal, before he became the Legate.
We wanted to ensure we created a visual world where key moments of the film were captured with vivid reality. The following is a scene from the film itself.
Once we had designed elements of the film, we then began creating props, costumes and makeup elements. Below is a photo shoot that further establishes the kind of aesthetic we are trying to capture with the film.
With your help we'll be able to produce a completely professional and truly memorable film with Fallout: Lanius. This means creating a vivid and believable world filled with fantastic costumes, cool weapons and gory special effects.
Whenever a project is shot in a professional manner, there can be tremendous costs involved. We want to always strive to produce the best possible Fallout Fan Film - and we think $10,000 (or more) will just cover it.
With your generous pledges, combined with the countless hours donated by our incredible team we'll deliver the best Fallout Fan Film you've ever seen.
