We will check out Fan Films from the Star Wars Universe, the DC Universe, The Marvel Universe and anything else we think you would love to watch.
This week we take a look at the Star Wars Fan Film, Jakku: First Wave. A short film that follows 3 Stormtroopers and the moments before they are dropped into battle on Jakku. So sit back hit the play button above and enjoy Jakku: First WaveThe thing I loved about this Fan Film is that it gives a face to the Stormtroopers. It actually makes you feel for what they do and gives you a sense of what they are fighting for. It’s a simple idea with great acting and great direction.
We sat down with Director Benjamin Eck to find out what it took to get this labour of love made.
