Illustration for article titled How The Mortal Kombat Short Was Made (And What Happens Next?)

Did you know Kevin Tancharoen, the man behind yesterday's amazing Mortal Kombat short, shot it in just two days? And that much of the work was done for free? You do now.


Tancharoen say down for an interview with Collider earlier today, and spoke about how the short film was made, and what he hopes to do with it now he's got the internet's attention.

"It took over a two-month span of time", he told the film website. " I shot this whole thing in two days on two Red cameras that were donated to me with a group of friends who all believed in the cause."

"It all started at the beginning of April and it took two months to do all the post and the editing. I edited it myself and the visual effects were great people donating their time. It turned out to be pretty awesome. I was very, very happy about it."

While confirming that it was a personal project, and had zero involvement or blessing from Warner Bros. (who now own the Mortal Kombat rights), Tancharoen does say it was made with the intent of getting a Mortal Kombat movie off the ground, with him as director (he's had experience with...Fame).
