Benedict has been a lifelong He-Man fan. He was even the winner of the 2012 Mattel Create-A-Character contest with his Castle Grayskullman concept which was immortalized as an action figure in the current Masters of the Universe Classics toy line. In the world of film, Benedict is an indy film maker and is currently screening his 80's throwback slasher movie Bunni at film festivals across the country.
Benedict has put together an impressive showing for the campaign, which secured 25% of the goal within the first 72 hours. The video Benedict created showcases his talented cast including professional wrestler Brian Cage of WWE and TNA fame, and reveals impressive costumes, including a realistic and menacing Skeletor.
This Masters of the Universe project promises to be "dark and gritty, yet so exciting that every one will love it." The fan community has already shown a flood of support. Pixel Dan, popular video reviewer of toys and collectibles, says, "These guys are pulling out all the stops, but they can't do it without your help. I promise Daniel will not let you guys down." The movie has also been endorsed by Val Staples, veteran comic book creator & colorist, and owner of He-Man.org, the worlds largest He-Man & She-Ra fan site, who states, "I've seen all the hard work and passion Daniel puts into his film and commercial work. The final products are top quality. I know how enthusiastic Daniel is about Masters of the Universe. I have no doubt that he will create one Powerful fan film about He-Man!"
