In the year 2014 one man, Dan Lanigan, in addition to other men, and some women, set out on a quest to become the first person in his family to create a live-action Futurama fan film. He is now regarded by most of his immediate kin as the foremost authority on the subject. This is his story.

Of course, he was far too lazy to do it alone. Dan sought out the greatest mind/ego of his age, Martin Moonwalker Meunier to help him invent new technologies, techniques, and recipes to bring the visual realism sorely lacking in the cartoon. He signed on the attractive Kody Frederick to star, help write and produce, as well as add the sex-appeal sorely lacking in the cartoon. He engaged his niece, Katie Lanigan, to act, help produce, and add the nepotism sorely lacking in the cartoon. He activated the legendary Garzatron, a synthetic being capable of carrying on 16 conversations at once with himself, to help design and build stuff. Adam Cook was raised from the dead in accordance with ancient Swedish prophecy to help produce. Dan secured the musical genius, Eric Diaz, a talented singer-songwriter, to make costumes. He brought aboard Andy Klimczak so he wouldn’t be the only fat guy on set. He also acted and helped write.

With the team in place, he was ready to make history: future history.
