Podcast Picks Top Trek, Star Wars Fan Films

fan-film-feederFan Film Feeder is a new video podcast and accompanying blog by Donald D. Dienst (I’m sure there’s a joke to be made there about 3D, but I’m too tired to find it). The gist is simple enough: Dienst chooses a fan film he likes, makes it available as a downloadable podcast, and announces on his blog what the latest flick is, complete with a small plot synopsis.

Flicks in the Feeder so far have mostly been Star Trek fan efforts from Starship Exeter, Farragut, and James Cawley’s New Voyages/Phase II. There’s also Star Wars offerings such as Reign of the Fallen and an abridged version of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special (not a fan film, as he admits, but a fan edit all the same); Fluffy The English Vampire Slayer; The Lobo Paramilitary Christmas Special; Doctor Who; and others.

I’m not sure I see the value of presenting a video podcast without adding something new to what is already available on the net, but if nothing else, downloading a flick from the podcast saves you the trouble of converting a fan film to .mp4 for viewing on an iPod. Another thing in Dienst’s favor is that he has good taste when it comes to fan productions.
