We here at the Spotlight (all of me) has been pushing Justin “JewWario” Carmichael’s FamiKamen Rider project since the inception. Unfortunately, Carmichael passed away before he could complete his dream project. So his friend Kaitlyn “MarzGurl” Saucedo took up the challenge of at least bringing his dream to his fans. I’ve also thrown my support behind Farewell, FamiKamen Rider, Saucedo’s tribute to her friend’s fans, including our old pal Matt Burkett (a friend of JewWario’s and visual effects man on the original FamiKamen Rider Reviews as well as the planned series) as one of the suit actors.
Over the weekend, Kaitlyn and her husband, Josh, released a teaser for the tribute project.
MarzGurl Productions presents “Saraba/Farewell, FamiKamen Rider,” the thrilling conclusion to the story authored by the late Justin Carmical. After a massive fight in Canada, the FamiKamen Rider has gone missing in action, leaving his transformation belt behind and his cartridge vanished. In the aftermath of the battle, a new enemy appears, seeking out the power of the FamiKamen Rider for himself.
For three years, MarzGurl has kept the transformation belt safe from enemy hands. Her search for the missing cartridge proves futile, until Chris, a rare video game collector, stumbles upon the cartridge by chance. Not knowing what he has found, Chris’s curiosity makes him a target for this new evil. As he learns about the history of the FamiKamen Rider, with the additional support of an old friend and a new hero, it is up to MarzGurl and Chris to make the journey to find answers, confront their own fears, and stop this new threat before it is too late.
Saraba/Farewell, FamiKamen Rider is shooting for a MAGFest 2015 premiere.
I won’t be able to attend MAGFest but I’m looking forward to the (hopefully) eventual online release.
