A long time ago, in a program that's going away… I made a mashup of "Star Wars" and the indie film sensation "Run Lola Run". That film came out right here on TFN in 2003 in glorious Flash animation format. Fourteen years later, while preserving that film for a non-Flash future, I took the liberty of doing some tinkering to remaster the film for a non-Flash format. The goal was not to 'fix' the movie (it's no better than it was, I promise you), or to go back on creative choices, but simply to incorporate effects that I could have included in 2003 if I hadn't been creating, well, a Flash cartoon. Anyway, here it is, a nice little blast to the past as we count down to "The Last Jedi". VIMEO: https://vimeo.com/245319571 YOUTUBE: I won't pretend this movie is any kind of masterpiece. It doesn't even make sense unless you're a fan of both "Star Wars" and a hyperkinetic German art film, a demographic overlap I confess I vastly overestimated at the time of production. But I learned a lot making it. It was the first film I ever sent to festivals. It brought home my first film award for my wall. It played at conventions in three countries and garnered me my first press coverage outside my hometown or college paper. And you only get one first of anything. So I'm happy to make sure people can keep enjoying (?) it in the post-Flash Web we're heading for. It's been good to me, and I enjoyed every moment looking back on it. Rick McCallum loves you!
