As part of the official programme of the Malta Comic Con 2012 (to be announced at a latter date), Wicked Comics are collaborating this year with film director and producer David Guivant. Back in 2007, David received worldwide popularity thanks to his Invincible Iron Man Fan Film which looks much more as an effective opening to an Iron Man TV series which came out long before Jon Favreau‘s blockbuster hit.
Marked by a small budget but lots of inspiration and drive, David’s movie was and still is a hit for all Iron Man fans. This success was followed with David being part of the visual FX crew who produced The Solo Adventures featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca. This was awarded the Best Fan Animated Short Film by George Lucas at the Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando.
David’s latest fan film : Captain Future which he also produced on a shoestring budget, will premiere on the 21st December 2012.
Wicked Comics is thus pleased to be screen the following fan film clips by David Guivant at the Malta Comic 2012 on the 8th and 9th December.
