This TIE Fighter Fan-Film Makes You Root for the Empire

Never, ever, in my Star Wars fandom did I think i would root this hard for the Empire to succeed. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Vader and his crew, but this is the first time I was actively pushing for the TIE Fighters to destroy the Rebel scum, and here’s why. First off, This is BEAUTIFULLY drawn and animated. I really can’t say enough good things about it. Reminds me of my favorite animated TV of all time, Gundam Wing. So hats off to Paul Johnson for making a stunning Star Wars fan-film. Now onto why I was rooting for R2-D2 to get his head blown off. The score was a perfect blend of evil and badass. The type of score that makes me want to so donuts in an empty parking lot while smoking a cigar. It was THAT good. It carried a certain emotional that had me relate to these badass Tie pilots as they swarmed out of their mothership. Which brings me to my favorite part of this short, The pilots themselves. Never in a Star Wars film do you get to see the faces of the enemy as they fly their fighters. This was so you could’t relate to them; it didn’t matter hat they looked liked, all that mattered was that they were the enemy and they needed to die! In that light this short turned that notion on its head! I was pleasantly surprised to see the blending of helmets and faces throughout this film. It made for a very unique aspect of the classic “dogfight” and I loved it. Kudos to all who were involved with this animated short, there are a lot of people in film industry that could learn from this. Let’s pray someone takes notice and gives this a full run of episodes.

One thing we knew before this, is that Tyler is definitely insane, but he’s sure as hell fun to watch. The guy never stops working, and now he’s teaming up with Fox to create the animated short 5 Things You Don’t Know About Me. Creativity never sleeps, and I’m glad to see someone with his talent spreading his wings.
