Renegade is an homage to the 1940’s American pulp magazines.

The whole thing is just a bunch of renegade humorous fun condensed into 3 short minutes. The film is an homage to the 1940’s American pulp magazines, like Thrilling Wonder Stories, Terror Tales and Thrilling Mysterys. These magazines featured cover art by artist like Rudolph Belarski, Tom Blame and Earle Bergey who often drew thinly clothed heros and heroines fighting off mad scientist, druids, henchmen and goblins. Renegade is Pulp comic fun, with classic arch characters, romance and adventure. It is total male wishful filament fantasy!

Really we just wanted to make something fun, and we were looking at all of these old 1940s pulp comics and their covers always have these images of mad scientist and druids and girls in distress and hero guys in bathing suits so we started there and then 80s cartoons and B action movies influence a lot of it. I love these references and I don’t really like parody so much but I like making fun of something you love so we just tried to straddle that line of parody and homage

The brilliance of it all must be in its length, and how the film got unmercifully chopped into segments, almost like a trailer, but it’s not a trailer. The story is told, but all the bullshit in between is chopped, fragmenting only the illusive parts. The actors all got their characters right, let’s face it, playing the exaggerated hero and strutting in tight underwear might not always be an easy challenge, but they nailed it. Renegade was also supported by a fantastic soundtrack that reminisces the intended eras, and sets up the tense and thrilling atmosphere from beginning to end.
