G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t the only G.I. Joe themed motion picture that’s in the midst of production! Exciting news today as the fanfilm G.I.Joe: Initiate has begun filming! We’ve been talking about this quality looking fanfilm since pretty much the beginning, and I know I was psyched when it reached its Kickstarter goals.
As celebration of their filming getting underway, the guys behind G.I. Joe: Initiate have revealed an image of their Cobra Trooper from the film…and it looks awesome. You can follow all of the progress on the G.I. Joe: Initiate Facebook Page, and check out the Cobra Trooper below. Good stuff here, and can’t wait to see the finished product!
Another G.I. Joe team member has made their G.I. Joe: Initiate debut, and this time around it’s Stalker! Make sure to keep your eyes on G.I. Joe: Initiate’s Facebook Page, which will be continually updated as more team members are added and more images loaded.
Check out the Facebook page here, and the mirrored image below.
When he did his interview with What’s on Joe Mind, Frederic Doss teased that another character reveal was coming, and now here it is! While Doss also mentioned that they were trying to steer clear with what Paramount was doing with their film franchise, obviously they couldn’t anticipate Firefly being a central character in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
This rendition of Firefly looks very cool! Interesting that they chose to steer clear from the balaclava and go with a more armored mask look again. I dig it.

I’ve been showcasing many of the images and details for the upcoming fanfilm, G.I. Joe: Initiate, and we also interviewed a key contributor, Fred Doss on the most recent episode of What’s on Joe Mind. But all along the way, folks have been clamoring for some video. Well, it’s not much, but the folks behind the film have posted a small teaser, just to set the tone. With their Kickstarter project recently closed, and full funding achieved, they can now start full blown production on the project, and I’m sure a more elaborate teaser or trailer will be coming along. Be sure you’ve “Liked” them on Facebook to keep up to date as well.
Until then, check out the short (but cool) teaser below, and even though their Kickstarter program has ended, you can still hit up GIJoeInitiate.com to donate via PayPal and help this ambitious project succeed. I’m looking forward to the end result!
The next great G.I. Joe fan film endeavor looks to be G.I. Joe: Initiate, and over on their action-packed Facebook page, they’ve revealed a new player in the game… Major Bludd!
Check out the image below. Also, I’m excited to say that the film reached its Kickstarter goal, but they are still accepting donations to improve the production quality of the film! You can hit up their Kickstarter Page and still donate. Make it happen.
Here on the site and on the What’s on Joe Mind podcast, I’ve been talking up G.I. Joe: Operation Red Retrieval, which was an awesome fan film by the talented Mark Cheng. Well, now there’s another great looking film on the horizon, entitled G.I. Joe: Initiate.
A very ambitious undertaking by a crew of military veterans and folks well versed in the motion picture process, this looks like a very cool, very military themed operation that has some real potential. Real military hardware including armored personal carriers and tanks(!!) are at their disposal, and from what we’ve seen so far, this project has some great potential!
You can keep up to date on this new fan film on their Facebook Page.
Most importantly, though, the film needs our help. They’ve launched a Kickstarter page with which Joe fans can donate money to help ease some production costs of the film. Help feed the crew and assist with minor incidentals. In the grand scheme of things, it appears to be a small price to pay for what looks like a very fun, military, and action oriented fan film.
Once again, keep watching Facebook for updates, and if you can help them out on Kickstarter hit it up! The sooner they reach the goal, the sooner we get a great fan film, and if they overshoot their goal, all extra proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior project. Can it get any better? I’ve mirrored some cool character images below, just to give an idea what they’re going for. Good stuff.
