That was awesome beyond words!   Someone posted this on Reddit, too!

The actors in that played the characters very well.  Thanks for sharing!

They did a nice job handling Leela's eye, which always presents a problem:


The opening scene with Leela zipping up her boots while Fry is zipping up his fly doesn't leave much to the imagination  ;).

Although the video was entertaining, it quickly became evident just how closely the original voice actors are tied to my enjoyment of the show as a whole.
Nothing can be made idiot proof because idiots are far too clever.

There is a link to the "official" website of the fan movie : http://fan-o-rama.com/home/
Maybe this will encourage a new start for Futurama?

That was really well done, but I'm not sure it will go any further. Copyright and lawyers, y'know.

But if it might encourage an official live-action version of Futurama, with the real voice actors lending their talent to the live-action actors... well, now... all for that!

I've seen the trailer, looks pretty interesting, it's just Leela's eye gives me the collywobbles. I don't know why. Other than that...  :)

It's the Bender that gets me. And, obviously, the voices being so different.
It's a thing.  It's like a plan, but with more greatness.

Fighting? There's no fighting in Plan C. Plan C is run away faster!

The past with dumb people who wanted to kill us for dumb reasons is behind us.  Ahead is a new place with new people who'll want to kill us for totally different reasons!

Agreed.  They did such a great job on everything else, and to have Bender look like a cheap animation, pasted on top of the screen.  I suppose with how much that would cost...
The voices don't bother me too much- I understand these are not the voice actors we are accustomed to (and possibly not even real actors).  Over all, this is very well done.
Well, there goes the Internet

It's hard to create in "real" 3-D some characters always in 2-D...
Look at the art from a lot of artists on the web and no one of them is perfect as well for Futurama or the Simpsons. I still have problems with Leela's eye because it is always too small (usually it uses a large place in her forehead).
Due to the look of all characters (ears, mouths,...) it will be always hard to represent them with real people. But if I quote the 3-D cinematics from the PS2 game (only designed by computer a long time ago), the rendering is rather successful. Maybe an entire fan film without real persons will be more realistic.
I think Bender could be more detailed, it looks like a pile of geometrical blocks.  :rolleyes:

It is a very great work despite of this.  :) :)

Agreed.  I have the game for the Xbox.  It works. I think it works because everything is done in the same style.
This is still awesome.  ESPECIALLY for fan work.  Like most of us could do better. :giggle:

At the time I thought everybody has forgot it, this movie (approx. 32 min) has been finally released today on YouTube!

There is the link to this video :

I can't watch it now, because it's time to go to work...  :(

It was awfully cute, and I hope that they find funding for future projects along these lines.

The end credits are now scrolling on my TV.
It is a funny movie, with the major characters of Futurama. I'm a little disappointed because of the story which has no end, but it is very very well done for a fan movie. Look at the credits and the impressive crew behind it! I think it's better to keep the universe in 2-D, for example it is strange to see Leela's eye on a "real" person. Its proportions aren't the same as the original Leela's one and I was a little disturbed.
I can only encourage all of the movie crew to do such amazing work.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Please continue to watch after the end credits!

That was pretty amazing.  They've clearly spent some significant time and money on that, let's hope we'll see a complete episode out of it some day soon.  I too found the characters a little different, especially the voices, and that's the hardest thing to get used to.  Still, it's a pretty awesome effort and I'd love to see more.
