Jordan Downey just hit me up with a link to watch his 6-minute long Critters fan film, “Critters: Bounty Hunter,” which is all kinds of impressive.
The short was created in hopes of catching the eye of Warner Bros. brass, who are working on a direct-to-web series through their Blue Ribbon Content.
Jordan, in our opinion, has earned a shot. We hope he gets to helm at least one episode.
‘Critters Bounty Hunter’ was completed from start to finish in under two months with a small budget and an even smaller crew. All in, a total of six people worked on the movie: Myself, Kevin Stewart, Ricky Fosheim, Nick Soole, Troy Smith and Gina Luciani. We shot for two nights at a house in Mammoth Lakes, California. The Critter puppet was built by Troy Smith who worked with us on both ThanksKilling movies. Our crew handled everything from building the bounty hunter costume, learning the VFX required to pull off the glowing head, scoring, title cards, sound design, etc. We’re proud of what we pulled off with limited resources and can’t wait to share this with everyone.
