Star Wars Randomness

TIE Fighter (anime short film)

What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that's all but vanished from Japan nowadays?
Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.
Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years' worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts' seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day...

“Interdictor,” the music track: https://soundcloud.com/zakrahman/tie-fi ... nterdictor
Story/character info pdf file: http://www.mediafire.com/view/cpnc1oj27 ... erials.pdf

Special thanks to the good folk at Lucasfilm for encouraging people to get creative and make these kind of projects. It's thanks to their extremely fan-friendly nature that we can enjoy IMPS: The Relentless, TROOPS, etc.

Don't support me on Patreon, because I don't have one! And don't donate to my Kickstarter, because I don't have one of those either. Instead, if you enjoyed this, give someone at your workplace, uni, school or whatever a random bar of chocolate or can or Coke or something. Seriously, it'll probably make their day.
That would totally make my day.

Some of them are witty and some just seem random but they're all good. Some of the better ones:

I'm too lazy to go and find it right now. But I read somewhere on the interwebs that JJ Abrams said he was toying with the idea of putting Jar Jar's bones in the sand in the background of a scene. He said there'd be like 3 people who would recognize it. It sounded up in the air. Not sure if it was a real thing. but that would be awesome

I use a few of these quite regularly. With the proper inflections. The problem is that most people don't get them, so the responses are usually pretty damned funny. They're especially great at church.

Me: "It's not my fault!"
Them: "Uh, nobody said it was..."

Me: "Do or do not. There is no try."
Them: "Uh, how else can I do it?"

Me: "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
Them: "Are you questioning my faith? I believe in ..."

Me: "I've got a bad feeling about this."
Them: "Dude, are you okay? This is just normal stuff..."

Me: "Never tell me the odds."
Them: "Isn't that a pretty unrealistic way of approaching life?"

Me: "Stay on target."
Them: "Uh, what? What target?"

You obviously need to run with a better crowd if they don't get those.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
