‘Find Makarov’ Follow-Up ‘Operation Kingfish’ Debuts During Call of Duty XP

Operation Kingfish Debut

When the first live-action Call of Duty fan film, Find Makarov, was released many were confused as to where its intention rested. Some thought this might be the start of a Call of Duty film campaign while others thought it might be some viral marketing for Black Ops.

On the other hand with Operation Kingfish, the follow-up to Find Makarov, fans knew exactly what they were getting, and were very excited for its debut during Call of Duty XP. Not only that, but the filmmakers sat down to share some of what went into making both of these shorts, and what they see for their future.

While Find Makarov followed the events of Modern Warfare 2 pretty closely, Operation Kingfish serves as a bridge between the storylines of the first two Modern Warfares. Telling the story of Captain Price being captured, and Soap’s desire to rescue him, Operation Kingfish continues production team We Can Pretend’s dedication to creating an authentic Call of Duty film experience.

There are a lot of clever little moments contained within Operation Kingfish, like how Soap ends up with his scar, and a badass AC-130 sequence. If you are a fan of Call of Duty, and you didn’t get a chance to make it out to LA for COP XP, here’s Operation Kingfish for your viewing pleasure:

During the making-of panel with director Jeff Chan and Co., the skilled director talked a little bit about his inspirations for the pieces (he’s a huge fan of Modern Warfare) and where he would like to go next. Chan did say that he would like to continue to put out content for Activision and this franchise, but for now he and his team are focused on a well-deserved vacation. After working non-stop to make this release date, and after the tremendous fanfare they received during the event’s keynote, I would say it is well deserved.

What do you think of the second Call of Duty fan film, Operation Kingfish? Would you like to see more films from this production team?

    very impressive. a cod movie could be very very good. have to be R tho.

  • JDemaria

    when Soap got hit by the RPG the guy shouted “Covering Fire” “Roach!”

    lol was shouting the wrong name intentional?

    • Gabeler

      Not a mistake. Not the wrong name. Roach is still a member of their squad at the time. He’s ordering Roach to provide the covering fire.

        i thought this was supposed to be a prequel for MW2? roach hadnt joined the team til right before i thought, as no one knows who price is when the rescue him from the gulag.

          :::MW2 SPOYLER::: But they knew Price was the Prisioner 627, Only Roach didn’t, and so the player either. I rememember a phrase like “Here’s the prisioner 627″ and Soap saying “This belongs to you”, giving his M1911 from CoD4 back.

    The only thing I could really criticize about this movie is the voice acting; while I realize they couldn’t get the actors who actually played the roles being portrayed in the movie, it would’ve been nice if it wasn’t so amateur.

    Nevertheless, a great movie by Jeff Chan – he has a bright future ahead of him, that’s for sure.
