I love Star Wars. My friends and family know it. I’ve had the honor of contributing pixels to the brand through a variety of trading card, RPG, and interactive projects. The movies are where it comes alive for me. ESB is my favorite. All the way.
The entertainment world has it’s fun with us by teasing theatrical releases at least a year in advance. Today was the release of one of those teases. In motion. I got goosebumps and the force got me when the Millennium Flacon twirled with smoke trails behind and then got into a skirmish with a pair of advancing tie-fighers. Wow. Then the title appeared. What happened? I understand certain budget constraints, but the attention to the title appearing was rather amateurish and a little too simple. I was expecting a little more flash, but I will take the 88 seconds when I can.
I do motion graphics. I think I do them pretty alright. I wanted to give a crack at putting a couple hours of moving pixels and some effects to give the title a little more oomph. What I created is only an homage to the title. All copyrights are owned by Disney. The brand, logo, and title. I love it all. May the force be with you. Enjoy. Create. Share. Be well
