A 2004 graduate of the prestigious USC film school, Garrett Gilchrist is well known for his viral film restorations such as The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Cut (2007-2013), Henson Rarities and Star Wars: Deleted Magic (2005/2009). He had previously made various no-budget features such as Gods of Los Angeles (2002-5). He is a prolific artist and animator, known for the viral Doctor Who lost episodes animation project, Whosprites (2007-9).
55 hours of footage was shot for the film, including additional scenes intended to showcase other characters and set up a sequel. Due to the massive amount of effects and animation required, and lack of any funding, editing of the film was never entirely finished (after 3 years work). The unfinished edit received over 11 million channel views on Youtube.
This 93-minute version of Shamelessly She-Hulk (2009, April 2018 remaster) represents the editing done 2007-2010 plus a month's work remastering and editing some previously-unseen material, improving effects and sound. While still unfinished in places, this edit gives a reasonably complete picture of what the film was intended to be. If possible, director Garrett Gilchrist would like to do further editing in the future.
Kierstyn Elrod plays She-Hulk, with Lesley Youngblood as her alter ego, Jennifer Walters.
A young lawyer living in Los Angeles deals with the trials and tribulations of becoming a famous superheroine (and member of Marvel's Avengers), and making a film about how all of that came to be.
Visited by her cousin Bruce, who is on the run from the law, Jennifer Walters is shot by thugs hired by the gangster Nick Trask, and left for dead. Bruce saves her with an emergency blood transfusion, but in the process she takes on his powers and becomes a sensational new heroine.
As her own father, Sheriff Morris Walters, declares war on the green "monster" she's become, and as Nick Trask declares war on her and her friends, Jennifer must decide if she's really the monster they say she is - the sort who would kill Nick Trask - or something entirely new. And she must decide if her blossoming romance with childhood friend Zapper is more important than her future as a superhero.
In the process of making her film she takes down villains Titania, Weathermaster and more, and shares her concerns about how difficult it is to translate a comic book hero to the big screen.
She-Hulk's scenes were shot in Santa Monica, January-April 2007, over a year before the Marvel Cinematic Universe took over the box office with Iron Man. It's a running gag in the script that a lot of Marvel movies had failed up to that point, and Jen is worried about making one.
In her late-80s comic appearances, She-Hulk was aware that she is in a comic book. She-Hulk making her own movie here has that same fourth wall breaking quality. We also see in the film how finding out she was in a comic book changed her.
The first four months of shooting were produced by J. Waters. Gilchrist tried to spend as little money as possible. This was not more than ten thousand dollars, half of which was a miniDV SD camera package for five thousand dollars. Technology has improved a lot since then.
Shooting continued (including Jennifer Walters' scenes) in 2008 around the USC campus, with a budget of zero, and often a crew of one.
Scenes of Nania's Spider-Man (and Gilchrist as director) appear on the "Spin Your Own Webisode" special feature on Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 DVD and Blu-Ray. Gilchrist and Nania met Sam Raimi at the L.A. Film Festival for this feature, which was about fanfilms. Afterward, Nania was a stunt performer in several Marvel productions including Infinity War and Daredevil.
Goolsby who played Weathermaster (a version of Stilt-Man) later had a memorable appearance in Marvel's Agents of Shield S2.
Spencer is a popular anime voice actor. Muscat's appearances include Shameless and Terminator 2.
MiniDV has a very low color resolution, so it took extra work in post to make the greenscreen scenes look remotely acceptable. New techniques were used for the hospital scene in the April 2018 remaster. Often scenes required frame by frame rotoscope to paint She-Hulk green.
Many scenes remain unedited and unreleased, although the main storyline was completed.
Actors auditioned for, and some scenes were shot for, a proposed sequel (or sequel trailer).
Footage was shot of Blade, Black Widow and Punisher, released as a short video "Done and Dusted," or "Forsaken."
