Here's a little gem that quite a few fans have written in about lately. It is a Fan Film made in Italy ( it has subtitles ) that has to be one of the best Fan Films I have ever seen in terms of acting, costumes, special effects, and story. It clocks in at 40 minutes long, but is well worth it. Also being Vol. 0 makes it the first Fan Film prequel I have come across. There's already Vol. 1 & 2 available to watch online.
Here's a brief description: "Master Sorran, is obsessed by his search for an ancient civilization which, according to legend, holds the secret of immortality. After many years he lights upon the wreck of the civilisationís most powerful starship: the Resurrection. Sorran ignores the dangers and orders his crew to dock. The explorers and Sorran himself will face the mysteries of the Resurrection and the secret of the origins of the dark side. Volume 0, in the original script written byAngelo Licata and Fabrizio Rizzolo, was only the prologue of Volume 2. After months of post-production, we realised that the material deserved to be properly developed as it tells interesting stories about the past of evil Lord Sorran and the mythology of Eron; fulcrum of the entire story."
