Today filmmaker Ryan Parrotttells us about "Unsung Heroes II: Yellow Jacket".
Q: Describe "Unsung Heroes II: Yellow Jacket"in two sentences or less.
In the sequel to the 2003 Comic-con mockumentary "Unsung Heroes", wecontinue following the exploits of the defenders of Orange County,Frisbee Guy and Razor Boy, as they encounter the brother of thelegendary crime fighter "Yellow Jacket". However does this fledglinghero desire to follow in his brother's footsteps or will his jacket?smysterious powers lead him to ruin?
Q: If you were to compare"Unsung Heroes II: Yellow Jacket" to a movie or TV show what would it be?
If you enjoyed "This is Spinal Tap", "Waiting for Guffman", and"Best in Show", you should enjoy seeing that style of filmmaking whenapplied to the super hero universe.
Q: Why do you think"Unsung Heroes II: Yellow Jacket" would translate to film/TV/animation?
With the boom of realitytelevision, and the success ofdocumentary-style shows like "Arrested Development", we think the superhero genre is just asking to get made fun of with a "realistic"portrayal of being a crime fighter day-to-day. As we've seen in thepast, everyone wants to be a super hero and a television series likeours proves that everyone can, no matter how bad you are at it.
Q: How can folks find youat Comic-Con?
Those who are brave enough can find us on:THURSDAY, JULY 14, from 12:30-1:15pm in ROOM 26AB. It is located in thenew portion of the convention center, on the top floor, above HALL H,at the SOUTH end of the building. Hope to see you there.
Q: Why should movie folksseek you out at Comic-Con?
With all the serious issuesbeing addressed at this year'sconvention, we hope our little film will simply entertain. If not, weat least offer a place to sit down for thirty minutes (power naps areoptional) and I think there is a water cooler in the back of the room,but don't quote me on that.
