Video: Louisiana Ghostbusters premiere new fan film

The Louisiana Ghostbusters just released their brand new fan film! Check out the backtory below, then scroll a bit further to watch!

This project began in the spring of 2012, was shot in late 2012, previewed in 2013 at Alabama Phoenix Festival, and with the blessing of the Twin Cities Ghostbusters is now ready for release. It is our introduction to a well-established fan film universe which ties in some of the major players dabbling in fan films and web series, and a labor of love from a few fans of Ghostbusters who wanted to have a little fun over a weekend or two.

We’re planning to pick up from this with a stand alone fan film series of our own which we’ll work on this summer. Enough talk. Ghostbusters fans, we are proud to present our fan film, “Louisiana Ghostbusters.” Special thanks to Ice Park Productions and Ghostbustin’ 911 for sharing Will and Kat with us for a day and allowing us to tie in our plans for a short film to your established world. Also thanks to Adam Schwartz and the crew of Alabama Ghostbusters: A Web Series for letting us use this project and your show to bridge these and other projects together into a cohesive world of fan fiction we lovingly refer to as the GBFCU (Ghostbusters Fan Cinematic Universe.)

Be sure to check out more of the Louisiana Ghostbusters on either their Facebook page or website.

Louisianna Ghostbusters to raffle off a Proton Pack signed by Dan Aykroyd

Donations are now being taken as the Proton Pack nears completion. Click here for additional information as well runner up prizes that are also signed by Dan Aykroyd.

Louisianna Ghostbusters are getting ready to raffle off a Dan Aykroyd signed replica Proton Pack! Mind blowing, right? Best of all, proceeds from this raffle will benefit Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.

Here are the details:

LAGB is proud to announce that In February 2014 this donated proton pack will be practically given away in a charity raffle. The idea was conceived, funded, and constructed by Randy Fernendez and Twilight FX, makers of the amazing Phoenix Pack which has a one-of-a-kind venting system. While this raffle pack will not have a venting system, it is made almost completely from parts fabricated right here in Louisiana and will feature an all metal particle thrower or “gun.” It is one of the more unique and sturdy prop replicas of a proton pack you will ever see. Tickets for this raffle will be sold at Wizardworld New Orleans where folks can inspect the pack in person. We will also possibly sell blocks of tickets online in the days approaching the convention. Best of all, proceeds from this raffle will benefit Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. We’ll post additional pictures as this amazing item approaches completion and we get ready to announce ticket sales have begun.

The pack will feature lights, sounds and mechanics like an extending gun tip!

We’ll keep you posted and be sure to feature the pack on the site once construction is 100% finished.
