I got a call from a client earlier this week, a guy who had seen my previous short Freedom liked the style and wanted something to show of his +10 years of skills doing martial arts, and i'll get paid for doing this project as well. So, we threw some ideas around and came up with a script for a 3-4 minutes Star Wars fanfilm and it will be executed and shot during January, February and edited in March 2013. Just in time for my own project to go into pre-production for a summer shoot of Al-Azif (a Lovecraftian action adventure short). 

And since then i've worked on the Sith ship to be featured in the fanfilm, has a blend of Sith ship and Tie-fighters to it and i really like the over-all simplicity and design so far :)

and a bigger one of the post from last night, in its new format.. also attached a youtube clip of the animation -- though im not 100% pleased with the path of the ship, its banking too much back and forth but will take care of that later today :D

Here is part of the intro for the short. It's far from done, just a rough draft of whats to come.. expect more soon :D and the music is just temporary to set a mood, nothing more!


PS. the clips above have been removed, this is the one now! :)
