Sneak Peek of a scene from the film!
First trailer for the film!
15 years ago, the Super Task Force Six were shut down in secret by The evil Emperor Zagel. Since then, he has been working on a super weapon powered by all six armors. When a former Enforcer realizes this plan, he risks his life to steal Unit Green and passes it off to a completely unprepared Jason. Can Jason keep Unit Green out of Zagel's clutches? If the Super Task Force Six couldn't beat Zagel, what hope is there for the Super Task Force ONE?
This will be a feature film to be released in mid-late August. The project is not a fan film, it is an original story. Thought it does take inspiration from Power Rangers RPM and The Guyver.
The film is being directed by Steve Rudzinski and stars Steve Rudzinski, Seth Gontkovic, Aleen Isley. It includes voice talent from Ian Lemmon, David Hubbard, and Bill Murphy.About the Filmmaker
Steve Rudzinski is an experienced micro-cinema director. He has made films such as The Wolfster Double Feature, Basic Slaughter, The Slasher Hunter, and most recently Everyone Must DIE! which has been released in retail stores around America.
What We Need & What You Get
Basically we're looking for $1000 to pay a few people, especially for all of the wonderful CGI in the film. Steve has been paying for everything out of pocket; he considers this completely a passion project. His normal investors and distribution channels are not available for this film. The film will be made and released regardless, but pre-ordering the film will help us make sure the people that need paid get paid, and it will help buy the DVDs and Blu-Rays to actually print the film onto. And if we do make it over $1000, Steve would like to try to get some cameos for the film.
So what do you get?
- For $15 you pre-order the DVD which will include trailers and commentary. We'll autograph and ship out your DVD before anyone else.
- For $20 you pre-order the Blu-Ray. Exactly the same deal as the DVD pre-order, but in full gorgeous High Definition. Which is great, since the film is being shot in full 1080p.
- $25 gets you the DVD with a Limited Edition 11x17 poster. The design isn't set yet (so it's a gamble, I suppose) but the poster will never be available for anyone after this pre-order campaign.
- $30 is the Blu-Ray with the Limited Edition poster. 'Nuff said.
- $50 will net you the DVD, Poster, and a signed copy of the screen play.
- $55 is the same as the last thing but with a Blu-Ray.
- $100 will get you a DVD and Blu-Ray, Poster, Screen Play, and a Special Thanks credit in the film itself. We greatly appreciate your generosity and faith/excitement in this project.
F.A.Q.sWhy make a micro-budget Tokusatsu?
Honestly, because I didn't see anyone else doing it. Barely any fan films and as far as I could tell, not really any original content. Sure there's some stuff out there, like Battle Hero Absolute, but the pond is very dry. Starting this has actually introduced me to more people that want to make their own original Toku, so hopefully we have a big wave of them on the way!
This is something I totally understand. Whenever I've acted in my previous films, I've gone out of my way to not be THE lead or star. So why do it here? Well honestly, there's two reasons. The first reason is money. It's cheaper for me to be the lead than it is to hire someone and easier than trying to find someone to volunteer so much of their time to a passion project. The second reason is because I've loved toku so long and have wanted to be a Power Ranger since I was a kid so this is my chance, dammit.
Well I've bought the costume (two helmets since the first was a bust), the monster suits (being painted and modded by the talented Aleen Isley), and food when I feed folks on set, as well as props for the project. Fortunately I already owned all of the equipment, so at the end of the day I think this may be about $1000 out of pocket for me. A very small number, even keeping in mind the other $1000 I'm asking in pre-orders. So this is definitely a micro-budget film, with all the nuances of the genre.
Nope, it's a real story that acknowledges the nuances of Tokusatsu. The best comparison is Power Rangers RPM, which had a real story but brought attention to the parts that were always silly about Toku in general. So it's funny, it doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's not a parody.
No. This has nothing to do with Power Rangers.
