Cool Videos: A Live-Action Voltron Short Film

VOLTRON is one of the projects that never really seems like it's going to get made, despite ambitious pitches and concept art and the like. Whether or not we’ll see an actual film from the series is unknown, but one amateur filmmaker, Alex Albrecht, got tired of waiting, and decided to make his own.

Voltron – The End tells the story of a Voltron pilot trapped in his downed Red Lion, where he finds he only has a few minutes to live. It’s quite well done, and has a leg up on most fan films as it has an actual actor in the lead role. It’s Tim Omundson, who you might not recognize by name, but you will certainly know if you watch Psych.

It’s a cool little short, and one that shows there is feature film potential in this series if handled correctly (read: not by Michael Bay). Check it out for yourself below.

Personally I feel it's a wise move to do it this way. Make a short first, see if there is any kind of net buzz...then make a movie. Whether that movie turns out to be good or not is on them. Don't just make a movie cause the buzz was there *ahem* *TRON*.
But please Hollywood do me a favor and give the people who make the shorts the job on the movie. If they can make the short that good, imagine what they can do with a bigger budget.
GO LASSIE!
