A group of ElfQuest fans with a good track-record for producing excellent web-videos have secured Elfquest creators Richard and Wendy Pini's permission to produce a fan-film based on the series. The movie is to be crowdfunded (they need $5,000) and the Pinis are donating original art and personal phone calls as premiums to spendy donors.

It's a first for us and a first for ElfQuest, and we knew that we wanted to take advantage."

If you’ve been blessed enough to avoid them yourself, you’ve definitely heard the horror stories. Late night, crushing out a ton of work, writing, coding, anything, then boom – your computer crashes.
