    Aug 3, 2008, 3:35 PM - Boba Fett VS Predator #1

    Hey guys,

    I'm a film-maker looking into doing something every sci fi guru has dreamed of during those long hours at work. I will be shooting a short action sequence film for the 2009 Star Wars AtomFilms challenge (by Lucasfilm). I was a finalist this year and lemmie tell ya it was a blast. For the film I'd like to enter next year, I want a head on collision with the two slickest characters in sci fi history. "Boba Fett VS Predator". This will be a 5-8 minute fast paced action sequence film (think of Ryan VS Dorkman, only with lasers and flames ). I have pretty much everything I need (Costume, spfx, location, equipment, crew) but one thing. I dont have a predator costume and my budget doesnt really allow me to purchase one off Ebay. I know this isnt the forum for Pred costumes but I figure I could at least ask I'm here to ask if there is anyone near the Utah area that has a predator costume, interested in taking up the challenge of playing the role.

    I know it seems a lot to ask for but it should be a very exciting project to work on. And dont worry I'm no stranger to costuming. I myself am a fellow Fett (also have a TK and Revan). I know the hassles of moving and maneuvering in full costume. I'll make it as easy as possible to complete the movements required in the film. The film shoot shouldnt be more than a day or two as well. We will need to meet together a few times to practice the choreography. I have connections to some top notch fight choreographers and I'm sure we could whip up something very impressive to bring predator and boba their true justice.

    So yeah! let me know if there is anyone close enough interested in playing the role. If not I will have to pick a new foe for Fett and write a screenplay revolving around that. It should be a very fun project to be on

    Thanks for your time fellas

    P.S. Here's a demo video I put together to give you a better visual of what I'm going for.

    Also here's the basic story behind the film

    A Jedi survivor living on an outer rim planet is discovered by Fett, who quickly takes the job to collect his bounty. Fett begins hunting down the Jedi and locates him in a dark location (Not sure yet but perfurably indoors). As Fett quickly traps the jedi he's confronted by another hunter after the same prey. Predator. The infamous warrior finds the jedi to be a very honorable trophy seeing as he has the ability to use the force and wield a lightsaber. a very challenging yet rewarding find. So to get to the jedi the Predator will have to go through Fett, who isnt eager to give up his bounty.

    This sounds like a great plan and I hope it works out for you. Soeone did a short film with this, its not very long or as skilled as your demo but it is amusing.

    K so I made an "Attention Grabber" Demo trailer for the film and let me tell ya... It makes me all tingly to think about. Now that I've seen this vid I'm WAY stoked to see what we can pull off! Its an idea that will impress a lot of ppl at the film festivals I think! and I am very excited to get going on it. I will do some extra work to fund a predator costume if I need to cuz it looks like I'm not getting much reply from "The Hunters Lair". we'll see. anyways, take a look at this! It'll give you a better idea of the story I'm looking for.

    They had an old magazine that did this.

    Boba Fett won.

    I believe it was an old movie magazine in the 90s.

    It also had some other ones like Trebbles Vs Ewoks.

    You could always come here.lol wink wink.....Transporting this outfit on a plane would be a complete nightmare anyway, considering the amount of metal on it.
    Hope your film goes well, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    looks great so far. I agree with the others about Wickedbeard's Predator costume and it's a shame he can't do the filming. that is one sick costume Jeff.
