TK630 Short Film

"You knew this was going to be a suicide mission, didn't you?" There's always an abundance of new Star Wars fan films this year, but few of them are really this good. TK630 is an excellent, 10-minute Star Wars fan film short about a scout trooper - directed by Brendan H. Banks, an up-and-coming cinematographer who also shot this film. Marooned on a forest planet, an Imperial scout trooper hunts a lone Jedi, when he discovers an unexpected ally. Starring Josh Ruben & Starla Bolle, with Charlie McWade & Abe Danz. This is basic but good, and a nice twist focusing the story on an Imperial "bad guy." It's worth a quick watch.

Thanks to Vimeo directly for the tip on this. Original description: "Marooned on a forest planet, an Imperial scout trooper hunts a lone Jedi, when he discovers an unexpected ally."

Man, for a short, this felt long. Way too many expositions of the scout walking around. Seemed unnecessary and didn't add much to the reveal. Felt kind of like it was drawing it out for no reason. The music was good though. Overall I felt it was an "A" for effort, but "C-" on execution. I love Star Wars and I commend them on the original take, but it felt pretty amateurish at best. Which is expected I guess...

Umm, let's see. Felt too long, too many expositions, drawn out for no reason, good music, "A" for effort, "C-" on execution? Than pretty much a real Star Wars movie?

And above all, it's an uninteresting story. Just some random dude wearing a quality Halloween costume and wandering in some Canadian forest. Music is great though. A temp track probably.

Singling out the baddies is the best way to make us love them.
