    This is what happens when you find yourself missing Rebels after season two finished, make a fan film that explores the other side of the Galactic Civil War!



    This is just the reveal trailer, the film itself is still in production. The opening scenes were submitted as part of this year's Fan Film Contest. Not sure I made it in to that, looks like they're going for comedy videos this time. Nothing wrong with that and I'm still going to continue making this thing as I've been itching to get back into Star Wars fanfilms for the last year or so but other projects have kept me busy.

    Here are a couple of stills:

    I like how you set the scene to match the TIE Fighter cutscenes! It fits in with how Rebels has been mining EU fodder, especially those PC games which are set in the same era. It's cool to see the other side explored.

    Thankyou! I'm glad someone noticed what I was doing there with TIE Fighter. That game has so many good memories for me and is a huge part of the inspiration behind this fanfilm. And Rebels :)

    If you liked that, check out the full trailer that I've just released as well :)

    @Lord_Darth_Angelus Yeah, It looks really great. Is that the Ortana? I loved that ship in X-wing: Alliance. You've recreated the look of that game's cut scenes perfectly.^:)^

    Thankyou! I'm glad you're both looking forward to this.

    The Otana was a great ship to fly, so I really wanted to include one in this story. There are a lot of references to those games in the film, I'm glad they're being recognised even before it's released :D

    Here's a behind the scenes video talking about some of the motion capture I'm doing for the film.

    At last I have something to share!

    So, late last year I was given access to the latest version of the animation software. That means a huge improvement on rendering quality, but it also meant I couldn't share anything I created with the software until it was released to the public. That time has come and so I've released a new trailer!



    The film itself is almost complete, just a few finishing touches left to go. I'm excited to finally be able to show what I have been working on for so long.

    I had completely forgotten about this project. Just happened to come across the finished movie while browsing YouTube this week (I hate how hidden away this section of the forum is).

    I have to say this is my favourite Star Wars fanfilm. I just love all the Legends stuff it references, the TIE Fighter/X-Wing Alliance/Jedi Knight visual style of animation but with added motion capture and facial expressions works really well. Thrawn looks amazing. The story could easily be a new addition to the official Legends universe.

    It really deserves waaay more publicity and views.
