Years ago, the dying planet known as Krouton sent its last-born son to the Earth. His mission was simple: To save the planet and its denizens from certain destruction. more... The problem: What with all the preparing for their own annihilation and Tax returns and whatnot, someone made an egregious mistake, and the craft carrying this superhero did not crashland at its target destination, but instead in the backyard of the nice-but-dysfunctional Jewish couple next door. They would raise this infant son as though he were their own, however. Captain Awesome soon rose to the occasion, making it his life's work to fight to protect the world from all manner of evil. From The Emperor to The Puzzler to The Duplicitous Duo, he has captured and imprisoned dozens of the most dangerous criminals society has ever seen. But the bane of his existence, his arch-nemesis The Kool-Aid Man, has tormented him for years and has always escaped his clutches. Today, he makes his stand. Captain Awesome is a UCSD student film written and directed by Brian Carver and Grimace Boyer. It was shot on a shitty 1960's era Affriflex 16BL with and equally shitty microphone and dat recorder. It stars Marvin Elauria, Cristyn Chandler, Michael McIntosh, Ivan Harrison, and Nancy Friedman. Shot on location and in 16mm color film by a crew so tough they would settle for bottom-shelf hummus and pita bread, slightly chilled with a Perrier.
