Dark Jedi Revan’s Apprentice Fan Film

You know how we like our fan films around here and also how we love pointing out some of the best and sharing with you. Here’s a cool little video we came across that’s under seven minutes long but really pulls you into the story. It’s not perfect. It’s not professionally made, but it’s a good start and while they said this was just done for a school assignment, I’d love to see them make some more short films. They have a little something going here for just a student and some friend volunteers. So if you want something creative to pass a little time, we highly suggest you check it out. It’s a fun little fan film. Zoukmazing says of the video, “This was zero budget with no crew, and made for a visual effects uni assignment. I spent many sleepless nights to get this completed on time. Not made for…

STAR WARS : FORGOTTEN FORCE A Fan Film

You know how I feel about fan films. I’ve made that abundantly clear with each one I post here on the site. But now, we have a new one and this one’s great. We also talked briefly with Tim Johnson, Misunderstood Art Company, writer and director, about the film. You can learn more or follow updates at their Facebook page. Johnson says he made the film to honor his dad, Tony,  who passed away from cancer on June 19, 2011. It was released on June 19, 2016 on Father’s Day. It’s a wonderful tribute to a Star Wars fan and father and an all-around great film. We hope to see more shorts/films like this from the same crew in the future. Keep up the good work! So if you’re ready to check it out for yourself, here it is. Be sure to leave them a comment on the video or…

Wrath of the Sith: A Star Wars Fan Film

We love fan films here, or really anything done by Star Wars fans. It’s the premise this very site was founded on. We love Star Wars and we want to share news, thoughts, opinions, and more about Star Wars to other Star Wars fans. You don’t get any more in the spirit of that than with fan films. Even roughly-shot backyard productions can be a lot of fun to watch. They show how literally anyone can get into the world of Star Wars and make it come to life for them. However, with technology and the dedication of fans, we’re seeing more and more professional-grade fan films shot these days and that is definitely something to celebrate. So that’s exactly what we have for you today. Here’s another great fan film that would classify as a short. It’s just under 12 minutes long but it has a great, intriguing story,…

Fan Film: WAY TO THE REBELLION

Here’s a great story from Wong Fu Productions, a personal favorite of mine. In this fan film, Way to the Rebellion, we get the story of two seemingly unlikely heroes who get caught up in the battle between the Empire and the Rebellion. I won’t ruin the plot for you because really, this is a fantastic story. The acting is fluid and natural, the props and costumes are great, the filming and cinematography is professional-grade and the music is awesome too. All around, it’s just a great fan film. It hits all the check marks you want to see from a film like this. The story is intriguing and will leave you wanting more. The Empire is expanding. Now these heroes will join the fight.

The Real Fans Of The Saga – A Star Wars Fan Reality Show

We love fan projects and this one looks like a great one. A fun look at four different passionate Star Wars fans and how their fandom effects not only family life but everyday life. Here is a very fun project that most Star Wars fans will find exciting. The Real Fans project was filmed at the start of 2015 and followed 4 completely different fans (that are friends)  to Celebration Anaheim all through well over a year (including leading up to The Force Awakens and after it’s release). Each Episode will be 15 – 30 mins (actual time per episode TBD after editing) and there will be approx 12 – 17 episodes total (again, TBD while editing) This will be the 3rd project that Filmmakers Cris Macht http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5277601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 and Ian Vacek http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3051870/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 produced together. Why do they need your help? “The Risks and Challenges are always financial. When you don’t have enough….you can only do so…

Fan Film: Star Wars: Amulet of Urlon

We love fan films here. This one is under 5 minutes so it’s not an extra long watch. You can sit down on a work break or in between playing or studying and give it a quick watch. We don’t want to go into too much detail about plot since it is such a short film. It’s far better to just watch it for yourself and get the full experience. That said, it’s an interesting and new story idea, the character is intriguing and the film is done well. There’s nice use of lighting and other effects and we hope to see more from them along these lines. If the music sounds familiar, you probably played Star Wars Commander and clothing and props were also very well done. All in all, it’s good stuff for a fan film. We’d love to see a longer version of this to carry out more of…

BAD PILOTS – Star Wars Fan Film

We love Star Wars fan films. If you are a Star Wars fan, there’s a good chance you love fan films too. They really speak to the fan inside all of us and often bring out the details of the original films we love the most. This is why we love sharing them with you so much. Even the silly, the dark, and the parodies will make you smile when you think of how they remind you of the films that started it all. So with that in mind, here’s another great, fun fan film: Bad Pilots. It’s Episode 1: Holy Guacamole and it’s so worth the watch. At just about 30 minutes long, it’s like a quick episode of a sitcom and we’re hoping there’s more to come after Ep 1 because this was a lot of fun. “Three useless Tie Fighter Pilots feel the full power of the…

EXILE – A STAR WARS FAN FILM (2016)

You know we love Star Wars fan films. It’s probably obvious from the fact that we post about them nearly every time we find them. So here’s another and it’s definitely worth the watch. This is Exile Episode 1, a Star Wars Fan Film 2016. The production quality is great on this one and the story interesting. Some may think certain themes steer a little from the traditional feel of Star Wars but as a fan film, I think they get a little leeway for such things. If you love Star Wars and you love fan films, this is just one more to add to your watch list. “Jedi around the galaxy are being viciously hunted and killed by the evil Galactic Empire. Aware of the imminent danger, Jedi Master Boemana Tora and her Padawan Makal Lori, flee to the outer rim systems close to the planet of Lothal.” So…

Do or Do Not. There Is No Try

One of the most iconic quotes from Star Wars is this one from Yoda himself: “Do or Do Not. There Is No Try”  Would you like to learn more about Yoda? This Yoda documentary by Jamie Benning (@jamieswb) is just what you need. The story of how Yoda was brought to life on the big screen is really interesting and a lot of fun. This is well worth the watch if you’re a fan at all.  Here’s a little about the project from Jamie: “During the production of my Jabba documentary short, Slimy Piece of Worm Ridden Filth, I was put in contact with Toby Philpott’s colleague and Jabba’s right hand man. Literally, his right hand man, puppeteer Dave Barclay. Dave helped us, along with Toby (Jabba’s left arm), Mike Edmonds (tail) and John Coppinger (animatronic engineer) to reconstruct just how it was inside that filthy Hutt. And of course…

DARTH MAUL: Apprentice – A Star Wars Fan-Film

Here we have an awesome Star Wars fan film for you. This is a non-profit, unofficially fan film that was created just for fun but we gotta say, it’s one of the best we’ve seen so far. The running time is under 20 minutes so it’s a fairly quick watch that packs a big punch. It’s creative, well acted, has great sound and a professional quality look and feel. It also has a good story that we can really get into. If you’re a fan of Darth Maul, we really think you’ll love it. It even has a lightsaber duel in the first four minutes and it just gets even better after that. Awesome! The quality is top-notch and the excitement is high level and the suspense is intense. The musical background plays this all up even more and all in all, it’s just a fantastic short story. It will…
