Ahhh, I thought this was going to be a petition for a Saiyan Saga Blu-Ray set. :P

Oh wow, it's starting to feel like 2001-04 again lol. Sounds promising for a fan movie.

Dang it, me too. I was disappointed.

Anywho, if they're with Machinima then possibly it can turn to a great fan-film/series, just look at Gamers Zombie Series, Mortal Kombat Legacy and the new Splinter Cell Extinction fan-series, oh.. SCE already existed like a year ago.

Though, SCE is finally getting a move on with the first episode being released. Splinter Cell is an awesome game, loved all of them (Chaos Theory is the best one).

Good for these dudes for doing something like this. Evolution was so utterly disappointing, it will be very interesting to see how this turns out if it does eventually come to fruition.

This looks cool! So, are they just making a trailer, or are they doing a full movie?

This looks really cool. Though, if anything, DBZ does not need a live action adaption but a 'Disney' treatment. A 2 hour long DB movie with an original new story and awesome animation.
My favourite art style (and animation) outside Toriyama who worked on Dragon Ball: Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, Masaki Satō, Minoru Maeda, Takeo Ide, Hisashi Eguchi, Katsumi Aoshima, Tomekichi Takeuchi, Masahiro Shimanuki, Kazuya Hisada

Agreed! The old Disney was awesome back in the day. The Animation was top notch as far as the flow of movement and stuff. I'm not trying to bash on anyone that likes or would like a live action movie of Dragonball, but I just don't ever see a masterpiece ever happening. ''In my Opinion'' they should just stop with the live action stuff and focus on a great animated film.
The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

That is the truth. I am afraid it will look like a low budget Kung-Fu movie except they also fly in the air.

I wonder how they're going to pull off Piccolo...and what script they're going to use. An older dub script (non-Kai) combined with a small budget might make it into the cheesy low-budget Kung Fu movie that you're expecting.

$10,000 seems kind of low for a 45 minute film given the kind of effects work needed to pull off half convincing work, but hey, more power to them.

Actually the trailers gonna be 4 to 5 minutes long so it's an extended trailer

They've got the animated version of what they're gonna use (clips taken from the show) here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... cmgtgya-fw

The editing and music and stuff is pretty impressive. I hope it all goes well for them.

For some reason I heard "four to five" as "forty-five", haha. I blame it being insanely early in the morning when I watched the video.

This could work and good luck to the people that are trying hard on this video. Just like Street Fighter, most people feel like DB won't work in live action but I think it could depending who runs the movie. James Wong and 20th Century Fox did not seem to care about the movie at all and Fox knew that DBE was doom from the start since they hardly market the film in the US.
