The Legend of Action Man, 2010

A film by Andy Young

“Made on an ultra-low budget of $200, Dingoman Productions proudly presents their first feature film, The Legend of Action Man, a comedy about a mediocre, self-proclaimed superhero Action Man (James McEnelly) who is warned that if he causes any more trouble around town he’ll be put under house arrest. In comes Mark (Trey Dixon), a fresh-faced news intern looking for a big story to get his work on TV, and Action Man seems like an interesting subject.
