Cool Indie Star Wars Film: Rebel Scum
« on: January 13, 2016, 08:58 PM »
Not sure if anyone has already posted about this or seen it, but I came across this 9-minute independent Star Wars film tonight and was actually rather impressed:

It uses real locations, accurate props, and stop-motion animation giving it that realistic feel the OT films had.  Plus Gustav Holst's classical scores from "The Planets" work surprisingly well with Star Wars, giving us a taste of what might have been, musically, had Spielberg not connected Lucas with John Williams...

Enjoy :)

Pretty cool.  The location looked amazing.  And the costumes were excellent.  The story was concise, but it needed to be for a short film like this.  The only thing that I would say needed work was the animation.  The AT-AT in particular looked a bit too herky-jerky.
