Live Action you say?
Welcome to Loadout: Going In Hot, the live-action short by the guys and gals who brought you Fallout: Nuka Break! The folks at Wayside Creations approached us earlier this year as fans of the game and pitched their awesome idea for a short revolving around the Loadout universe. We’re pretty excited to work with Wayside and Machinima on the project and look forward to Loadout: Going in Hot dropping on Youtube soon! Check out the poster and tell us what you think? For you sci-fi fans, recognize anyone?
And here’s the official word from Wayside Creations:
Richard Hatch Stars In Live-Action Short Based On Over the Top Shooter Loadout
Wayside Creations’ latest live-action adaptation, Loadout: Going In Hot debuts December 16th on Machinima Prime
Loadout: Going In Hot, a sci-fi live-action short inspired by the popular hyper-violent third-person shooter “Loadout” from Edge of Reality, will debut on Machinima Prime on December 16. . Introducing viewers to Gaz, Captain of the HMS Loadout and his loyal crew, the film delivers to viewers the same excitement, absurdity and key gameplay elements that fans of the game have come to know and love.
Headlined by Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica, All My Children) as Gaz, the film features a strong ensemble cast which serves to create a character driven drama that doesn’t ignore the fast paced, high stakes action that are mainstays of the gaming experience.
Directed by Vincent Talenti (Red Star, Fallout: Nuka Break) the short film also stars Matt Mercer(Attack On Titan, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore), Bonnie Bower (Fallout: Nuka Break, Escape), Jon Enge (Mars Rising Films), Becca Hardy (Off-Season), and Circus-Szalewski (Fallout: Nuka Break, Conan O’Brien)
About Loadout: Going In Hot
In a novel twist on the well-traveled sci-fi genre, Loadout: Going In Hot follows a group of “merchant marines in space” who compete with other local haulers in the highly profitable (and extremely dangerous) antiquities and curios shipping business. Gaz and his crew scramble to avert a ship-wide disaster; while racing against the clock and Gaz’s arch nemesis, Mick, in their quest to retrieve a high value cargo payload. Like other critically acclaimed sci-fi properties (Firefly, Battlestar Galactica), Loadout: Going In Hot is peppered with genre action and violence while focusing on character development and interactions.
