BUCKETHEADS: A Star Wars Story

You know we love our fan films here and we have another fun one to bring to you today. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Stormtrooper? What do they go through in life? What do they experience while trying to carry out their job? Now, in this new film, you can discover some answers to that. BUCKETHEADS is a Star Wars Fan Film from the Stormtroopers’ perspective. Shot in September 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, it was a wonderful journey, with over 76 people directly involved in this effort to tell a Star Wars Story from the Imperial point of view. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the involvement of the 501st Legion, Vader’s fist.

Vader Episode 1: Shards of the Past

You know how we love our fan films here but we haven’t had any for you in a while. That is going to change today, however, because we have stumbled across an awesome new film for you to enjoy. As far as fan films go, this one is really top of the game. It will keep you hooked from start to finish and it really shows that it IS possible to take older characters and bring them back in new stories and new ways and it works. And it doesn’t feel like a fan film. That’s probably one of the best parts. It doesn’t feel like people in costumes. It is immersive. It is realistic. It will suck you in and you’ll forget it’s not an official film. In fact, some fans even feel like it’s better than some of the new official films we’re getting in the franchise. Yeah,…

The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story (Fan Film)

There are so many things to love about May 4th, but of those, one of my favorites is all the Star Wars fan films that come out. There are so many great Star Wars fan films out there and in May of every year, we get to see even more. It’s an exciting time for any Star Wars fan. With that in mind, here’s another great film to add to your list. It’s just under 15 minutes long, so it’s a quick watch, but I think you’ll like it as much as we do. From Mike The Marine: “I’m proud to finally present, The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story!!! My team and I worked hard on this film for a little over 2 years! Due to my school and work, the visual effects and editing took much longer. But in the end, the Force was with me and I…

Star Wars: Dresca – Award-Winning Fan Film

Here is another great Star Wars fan film. This one from Damsel in Damnation in honor of May the 4th. Not only is this an awesome short, but it’s also great to see the female lead and a fan film written, directed, and produced by a female fan. As a fellow female Star Wars fan and nerd, I love seeing this and supporting women doing an amazing job in this field. It has great acting, great CGI and effects and a wonderful story that will keep you hooked until the very end. It’s actually written and performed well enough that it could be part of the official canon (maybe minus a nitpick but overall, a winner). It’s honestly one of the best Star Wars fan films I’ve seen, and those of you who read our site often know that I have seen a lot of them. It has a great, original story,…

Scoundrels: A Smuggler’s Tale (A Star Wars Fan Film)

We have another Star Wars fan film for you to check out today. This was is new – was just added to YouTube on May 4th. They’ve done a really great job of it. It comes in at just over 20 minutes so it’s longer than a typical short, but shorter than a full-length movie. It has a good story, nice casting and an interesting plot. It’s a smuggler’s story and I was just talking to a friend today about how I have always loved smugglers. Funny that I would come across this right after that conversation. It has all the elements of a good smuggler story and a good Star Wars story. I don’t want to ruin it for you though, so really you just need to give it a watch for yourself. We’ve embedded it but head on over to their YouTube account and follow them if you want…

One day I’ll become… (Star Wars fan film)

You know how we love our fan films here. Here’s a little golden nugget that is absolutely worth your time to watch. It clocks in at just under 12 minutes, but they have absolutely done a lot with the time they have here. They say that they had no budget for this and it’s honestly amazing what they’ve created from so little. True talent is displayed here and I hope we’ll be able to see more films from him because it’s fantastic. For a fan film, it’s truly impressive. The quality is there, the story, and the visual effects are also amazing. It could easily be a tie-in or trailer to a professional Star Wars film. From Roman Gregorička: “This is a short fan film, our tribute to the Star Wars saga.It was made only with delight, enthusiasm and a zero budget.” See for yourself here: “It has always been my dream…

The Samurai Mandalorian – A Star Wars Fan-Film

Here we go with another awesome Star Wars fan film. This one has a samurai so I was intrigued from the start. It’s short, has live actors, great costumes, and an interesting story. It clocks in under four minutes long so you’re not going to need to block out a lot of your day to give it a quick watch. It has great music, too, and they are in the very, very beautiful castle Schauenburg in Dossenheim, Germany. I would personally love to be able to see this castle and location for myself. There’s an epic lightsaber battle, some beautiful shots of the sun setting and the scenery, mixed in with a great Samurai story as well. So go ahead and give it a few minutes and watch for yourself. Be sure to leave them a comment if you really liked it and maybe they’ll get around to making more for…

STAR WARS – Touch of the Past (Fan-Film)

You know how I feel about the fan films. We regularly scour YouTube and the rest of the internet searching for awesome Star Wars fan films. Sometimes we find great ones, like diamonds in the rough. Sometimes we find silly ones. Sometimes we find videos so bad they’re good. Whatever category they fall in, I love them. They’re like a guilty little pleasure and it’s my pleasure to also be able to share them with you. With that in mind, here’s the latest. Here we have another fan film from m3mr0ck.  It’s called “Touch of the Past” and in this short that’s just over 3 minutes long, we get a brief but intriguing story. I’m honestly super pumped for part two and I hope they end up making another. This film has some great special effects and an interesting plot. There’s drama. There’s lightsabers. There’s great music. It has all the…

Together – A Star Wars Fan Film

Here’s another Star Wars fan film that you need to check out if you haven’t already. It’s called “Together” and it’s by Justin Christie. It was posted just last month, so we’re getting some fresh fan films to keep us busy while we await the next official Star Wars movies. This is a great film, all 3D animated in Cinema 4D with a great story. It’s only 4 minutes long so it’s not going to take a lot of your time to give it a quick watch, but I really enjoyed it. It’s well worth the time to watch it and I hope we see more from Justin soon. I really liked it. Hopefully, we will see more like this from him soon. When it comes to fan films, I’ve seen pretty much all of them so it’s refreshing when something really catches my attention and stands out to me. This is one…

THE SITH RELIC – Star Wars Fan Film

You know how we love Star Wars fan films here, and honestly, there’s no shortage of them out there to choose from. It seems there’s nearly as many Star Wars fan films as there are Star Wars fans. With that in mind, here’s an interesting one we dug up for you. This short film from Scruffy Looking Workshop was posted in Jan of this year and is just under 15 minutes long. It has a solid story, nice costuming and decent acting. It’s not just your typical lightsaber duel (not that there’s anything wrong with lightsabers, but we like to see something different). And if different is what you want, then you’re definitely going to get it with this one. There are some… uh… interesting little pieces in this one that you won’t see in other fan films. The reaction from those who have watched it seem mixed – either they love…
