, ChrisBenisek, co-producer of the lowbudget romantic comedy short film ‘Just Another Day’. Bringsus his next installment,this time venturing inanother direction withNo One Likes A Hero.Drawing influence fromchildhood enjoymentsand the media, Benisek has come to produce amild comedy, that basisits issues around soci-ety.Recently he was asked, certain as-pects of the film are obvious, butwhat exactly are you trying to por-tray? ‘Basically from a few seconds init is hard not to guess what that myprimary influence is Spiderman, hencewhy the central protagonist had aposter and only owns the suit, as wellas this I have been heavily influencedby various comic and the Scary Movieseries. As they have more or less ledthe way for otherspoof productionsand I just think thatthe idea aroundthem is just comedygenius. But to befair some of today’sspoofs aren’t reallyworth the film thatthey are printed on.I wanted to dosomething aboutthis, breaking the cur-rent mould. Instead of being influ-enced by current films, I wanted togo deeper and basically circulate thenarrative on how individuals can beeasily influenced by others and in do-ing so not se how they are affectingothers.’ From seeing an advanced preview,here at Comic Com magazine can seeexactly where Benisek is comingfrom. Overall the narrative is simplis-tic, a teenage boy (played by DanielSullivan, who considering this is hisfirst role, he plays the part excel-lently). Wakes to find the only objectof clothing he has in his wardrobe is aSpiderman costume.
