Just Finished my First Short Film “Casey Jones: Overtime” **TMNT Universe Fan Film**

his has been one hell of a journey. i normally produce, but this has been a passion project of mine over the past decade. this is the first time i have Directed, i hope you all enjoy. let me know if you have any questions, ill be glad to answer them on here or on youtube



Cool! It had a real Tokusatsu/Sentai vibe to it which I really like. The fight scenes were pretty good overall with a few really great moments. The cinematography was a little underexposed, though. Sure, it's night time but the darkness mixed with low contrast prevents the images from really popping. It wasn't terribly cinematic, but I feel like that just added to the Sentai tv-show vibe.

The script and performances all played well into this type of film and I'm so happy that it didn't take itself too seriously (a common issue with fan films). For a directorial debut, this was pretty good.

Do you have any plans on expanding on this story and these characters? I feel like you've done a good job establishing them and making them your own and wouldn't mind seeing them developed further.

Any advice to other Producers who are looking to Direct for the first time?
