Imperial Officer Corps [May. 20th, 2005|08:51 am]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]
[Current Music |Imperial March]

As a number of other people (badwox, chairoraccoon, graafen...) have mentioned, a Star Wars fan film has finally been put online:

IMPS the Relentless aka TROOPS II, sequel to TROOPS. (Servers may be busy but keep trying.)

It's basically structured as a COPS parody, though the new one has more of a documentary flair. As always, well-done and funny. (Especially considering the minimal budget.)

The other cool news: I'm in it! Well, as an extra. Very briefly.

Actually, I think I appear three times, since I filled out a couple costumes. Only once am I actually visible and identifiable for any number of frames, though. Right at the end, in the closing shot, storm troopers march past the camera followed by an imperial officer and two tie fighter pilots. I'm the officer! (I used to have a page on my site about making that uniform, but I pulled it since it wasn't really "furry".) I should remake the uniform someday.

The officers uniform is great. A bit challenging to assemble, due to the unusual front panel, but not bad. And it looks so slick and dashing! None of them baggy robes. ;)

I've just spammed the website to the mailing list I'm on of Star Wars Epic Duels players. :)

I was an extra in that too. I spent the night at the concrete factory and got to wear a huge alien head. No clue if they ever got my name for the credits.

I can't get the download though. :(

Which head was it? Maybe it was one of mine. :)

I think they called it a Jedi Hammerhead. None of the pictures I took came out so I don't remember what it looks like very well. I do remember that it was tall and it had a tendency to collapse to one side.

Is there a torrent anywhere? At current speeds, it would take me about 2 days to get this. :)

Not that I've seen. That would be too convenient. :,

Unfortunately, I don't have enough hosting space at the moment to put up a copy.

Yeah, that's it. Looks like they changed the download scheme due to server load. Thanks for the link!
