A few weeks ago we saw a creative fan-made concept trailer for a ‘Gargoyles’ film, and the internet applauded the efforts of Carlos Ferrer, the creator of the short.
Ferrer is hoping to bring the popular 90s cartoon series to life, and is hoping that his short will inspire Disney to allow him to do just that.
“Gargoyles was just so different from every other cartoon at the time” Ferrer said in an exclusive interview with Fright Nerd.
“The show was dark, gritty, packed with action, romance, and comedy. It felt real and sophisticated with references to Shakespeare and mythology that made the show intellectually engaging.
The characters were real individuals with motivations and flaws that viewers could relate to. The constant theme of family and not judging someone based on their appearance or belief hit me too.
When I watched the first season as a kid, it didn’t feel like I was watching a cartoon – it felt like I was watching a movie. Episodes like “Deadly Force” subtly touched upon the topic of gun control, which had an impact on me.
I think that kind of social commentary and attention to detail is what made Gargoyles so incredible and memorable for me as a fan and a filmmaker.”
Ferrer put a lot of work in the short, and it certainly shows.
“It only took a few months of actual work to complete the project, but all that work was spread across a two-year time span, working around other projects that would come up” Ferrer said.
“I started with sculpting the characters from the show in 3D while creating a storyboard of the entire project. I rented a professional camera and went out at late hours of the night and shot some background elements to use throughout the film.
I eventually composed the music, and while I was tempted to use the original theme by Carl Johnson (which is incredible), I thought it would be more respectful to capture the sound and feel of the show, rather than copy the score. I finally finished the project by mixing the sound and music, which brought it all to life.”
Those of us who grew up in the 90s remember ‘Gargoyles’ as part of the afternoon, after-school block of cartoon programming.
The first episode ran on October 24, 1994 and the final episode aired February 15, 1997, marking 3 seasons of episodes.
Ferrer spoke about how he would approach a film for the series.
The goal is to catch the attention of Disney, and Ferrer is dedicated to bringing his concept to life on the big screen.
So far, he hasn’t heard anything from Disney regarding a potential project, but he is holding out hope.
“Not yet but I hope they do! I know it’s a long shot, but I’d love to be part of bringing the story of Gargoyles to live action in an exciting way, not just for the fans and I but for audiences that are not familiar with the show” Ferrer said.

‘BrightBurn’ Is a Horror-Fueled Twist on Super Hero Story
With all the popularity of Marvel and DC Comics films over the past several years, particularly as they venture into much darker territories, it’s about time that horror put it’s own twist on the traditional super hero story.
James Gunn, the man behind the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is excited to unveil ‘BrightBurn’ which is like turning the Superman story upside down in a way that’s never been done until now.
Gunn had this to say about the upcoming film, which stars Elizabeth Banks and drops May 24th, 2019.
“About a year ago my brother Brian, my cousin Mark, director David Yarovesky, producer Simon Hatt and I started coming up with an idea for a horror film that excited me in a way nothing outside of Guardians has in years – it was personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying.”
