Lost Jedi: Howsi Stigos and the Battle of Ipris Kii

The most layered and complex design I had attempted up until this point, the battle for Ipris Kii was the clearest scenario I had in my head. A coastal fortification under heavy assault from the Galactic Senates Forces (Clone Troopers led by Jedi). The incursion is through heavy cloud cover and among the assembled warriors are Howsi Stigos and her Master, Hollan Fry, a Sauron Jedi. As Hollan attempts to chastise her padawan in responsible use of the force the Dropship is struck by a missile. Hollan is killed on impact. Howsi Stigos survives the impact into the sea and fights her way to shore only to find enormous resistance. The scene depicted here is the moment prior to Order 66 being granted, with Howsi trapped between two warring factions, both about to be hell bent on killing her.

I’m not completely happy with it as some of the layers are not fully incorporated into the image but as a starter I found it reassuring that I wasn’t entirely lost in the composition of the piece.

Beyond Fan Film: Modern Warfare: Frozen Crossing (Part 2)

Part Two of last week’s mentally good Modern Warfare fan film. This is nothing short of truncated Hollywood and just shows what you can pull off with little or no money but a lot of contacts. The original cost $209.43. This was marginally more at $600 but is visibly in another location and looks like a million dollar blockbuster.

Sounds trite, but this is what I’ve been trying to communicate with films I’ve been directly involved in. It’s not always about pumping money and time in – it’s about identifying those with the skills and the equipment and present them with something interesting enough to make it worth their time. At our level there’s pretty much no other choice.
