  1. Special design project, 2012.

    Software is Maya, Mental Ray, and Shake. Minimal lighting with final gather. The goal was to create something that looks miniature, which I tried to carry through the design and animation of the characters.

    It's animated at 12fps.

    The depth of field is done mainly in single pass renders. Shake was used for secondary image effects (extra blur) and for adding all of that lens smudge. Dirt images were lifted (stolen) off the internet... along with the opening STAR WARS footage (obviously). The original footage was then chopped down to 12fps and given the same Shake treatment.

    C3PO is an original re-design, while R2D2's re-design is kind of borrowed from a sculpture I saw (sorry!). The sand is all texture and displacement maps... I took a photo of the sand in my daughter's sandbox and used that for color, spec, and displacement mapping.

    The original SW sequence is something like 4-6 minutes long... I re-edited the opening to play at 2 minutes, which was tricky. Tricky to have it play and feel seamless while editing out so much. Tricky to get the soundtrack music to sync up throughout.

    In the end credits you see orange and blue ramps over black... those orange and black swatches were added to the desert shots for added continuity.

  2. JOIN US:

    Two years ago we released Star Wars Shadows of the Past. Some claimed that it was the best fanfilm they have ever seen. Now we return to show you our vision of the sequel. Support us to make this reality.

    "The circle is complete." - Master

    Plot: Several years have passed since the end of Shadows of the Past. War has been raging ever since. Fallen's revolution changed the whole Empire, it turned the Master's realm to shreds. Fallen's armies, though weak and unorganized at the beginning, were forged into a deadly and unstoppable weapon. Now all that's left is to strike a final blow and confront Master directly.

  4. This is part one of a two part Star Wars fan film.

    A young boy watches as the Jedi who saved his people is killed by the very clones who once fought by his side.

    Years later, as a member of a small insurgency against the empire he and his team hatch a new plan to take back their planet by drawing the attention of the newly formed rebel alliance.

    Armed with the fallen Jedi’s light saber, he and his team battle to strike fear into the local imperial garrison, and overthrow their despotic governor. Their silent attacks give birth to a legend, and the people speak of a phantom Jedi whose spirit has returned.

    As the story spreads they manage to draw attention to their forgotten corner of the galaxy, but who will arrive first, the rebel alliance or the empire?
