In 2015 our team met a 13-year old boy named Phillip Parks who was battling brain cancer. One of his wishes was to be a stormtrooper so our team was able to get him an official stormtrooper costume. Sadly he passed away a short time afterwards. His brother, Ben, was able to appear in this film in Phillip’s costume. Wanting to do more for the hospital who cared for Phillip, Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville, KY, our team decided to embark on creating this fan film in his memory and as a way to bring attention to the good work of Norton Children’s Hospital and Children’s cancer.
We would like to thank every single person who participated in the making of this film. It could not have been made without the hard work and talent of so many big-hearted individuals donating their time.
What you are watching and hearing are many hours of hard work. We wanted to go old school and minimize the CGI. The Lightsabers and Compositing were the bulk of the CGI work. Everything else from the ships to the large scale props were all hand made or models that were put together. We went through and found 1980’s models when we could. The cockpit, and other ship exteriors were large scale props we built. The bunker, speeder bikes also were built by hand. The music is 100% an original composition that paid homage to Mr. Williams and the Star Wars musical feel. The Lightsabers were handmade as well as the other weapons. Costume designs were also handmade for new characters.
We premiered the film in January of 2019 to a packed house and managed to raise awareness for the hospital and present them with a donation from the attendees. We present the film here to freely enjoy, share and distribute in Phillip’s name and would encourage anyone who wants to help support the cause to find a cure for Children’s cancer by donating to Norton Children’s Hospital via their website.
Thank you to George Lucas, Lucasfilm LTD, Timothy Zahn and all who helped in the creation of the characters and worlds presented here in this fan fiction. Thank you to the composer, Joe Stockton for his entirely original score with great respects to John Williams.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/sunday-super-cinema-star-wars-hand-of-the-empire/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Sunday-Super-Cinema-Logo-600x253.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Sunday-Super-Cinema-Logo-150x63.pngColumnSunday Super Cinemacinema,empire,sunday,super
