It seems like December 2016 was the month of the fan film and we have another one for you to check out. Survivors, from Cinemage is a film that gets right to the action and suspense from the first scene. You’ll see a chase and a lightsaber fight all within the first minute. It really gets your Star Wars blood pumping to find out what happened and why. Who are the survivors? What are they surviving? Who will win this battle? Honestly, it might leave more questions than answers once you watch it all but personally, I loved how it whets the appetite and makes you want to see more. I hope they keep writing, keep acting, and keep filming. There’s nothing like true Star Wars fans to capture the spirit of the franchise and that’s part of what makes these fan films so much fun to watch. Even when they’re not perfect in every detail, or on par with a professional-level production team, they have heart and passion and it shows.
All in all, it’s a well made film. The action is great, the story is interesting, the saber fights and cool, and the action is on par with what you’d expect from Star Wars. It’s a great little film and I hope they do more. The special effects are nice and the costumes were really well done, too. This short comes in at under 5 minutes so watch it on your break or whenever you can spare a few minutes and let us (and Cinemage) know what you think of it!
Here you go!
