“The Flying Man” is a unique sort of superhero. He is no Superman or Batman for that matter. Why? Because unlike those heroes The Flying Man seems not to be guided by such a rigid moral compass. He deals with bad guys swiftly and without prejudice.
This short film is the brainchild of Brazilian born writer/director Marcus Alqueres, who is now headquartered in Toronto, Canada. His background is in film visual arts and animation and has worked on such big screen flicks as “300,” “Source Code,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes and “The Adventures of TinTin.”
“The Flying Man” was made possible with the help of friends and colleagues of the director who not only chipped in financial resources but their moviemaking talents as well, including visual effects veteran Soao Sita (“Avatar,” “R.I.P.D.”).
This taste of Alqueres’ dream of creating a new superhero, if well received by a studio and the public in this short, may well lead to a full length theatrical presentation of “The Flying Man.”
