TIE Fighter – short film
Hello El Moochadores. There’s just one thing I wanted to post about this morning and it’s pretty incredible. Check out the short animation Tie Fighter by youtuber OtaKing77077. According to the youtube page it took him over four years to complete this project.
What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards. Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years’ worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts’ seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day…
This really is “geek creative” at it’s best and more than a little inspiring.
