Originally planned to screen over the weekend in New York, Eddie Lebron's Mega Man fan-film is making the jump to Washington D.C.
The director announced on the movie's official blog the first publicly screening will take place at DC Anime Club in Washington D.C On May 15th at 3:30PM. The event is free and Eddie, along with two other producers, are expected to make an appearance. There's also a good chance the actor who plays Mega Man, Jun Naito, will be in attendance as well. Check out the DC Anime Club's Facebook page for more details on the screening. If you can't attend, you'll still be able to see the movie on May 7th when it will be freely distributed online.
In related MM fan-film news, Eddie and his team announced they've begun accepting donations from fans, which will be used to pay for "the music, DVD production, streaming options, and other aspects related to the release of the film." Donating $5-$10 yields a complimentary copy of the film on DVD, while a donation between $11 to $25 will get you the DVD, a copy of "Mega Man: Origins" the film's prequel comic, and your name within the film's credits. There's more prizes to be had, so check out this blog post for the complete run down of goodies.
Should the film allowing embedded streaming, I'll be featuring it here on the blog May 7th.
