If I told you in high school, we tried…and failed miserably to do something like this…this being playing Star Wars in the woods, in hopes of having some art buddies edit in lightsabers…that would be a fact. The truth is, that experience may have been my first taste of a film maker’s world. It wasn’t nearly as fun having to organize meet ups, coordinate fights and of course, neglect to properly plan or script anything.

Thankfully, SHAWN BU and a few other like minded creatives, were able to lock it down and provide us with this epid fan made film, simply entitled: Darth Maul – Apprentice.

I won’t spoil it for you, but this is definitely worth the watch. Check the film and full credits below.

MAKING OF: http://bit.ly/1QFMYTB

We worked incredibly hard on this film for almost 2 years! We always felt that Darth Maul should have had more screen time. So we wanted to create a film just for him with the best lightsaber fights we could do! This is not based on any books, comics etc. MAKING OF coming soon!
