On January 16, 2006, Star Wars:Forgotten Realm began shooting its first scenes. This fan film, written and directed by Darren Crawford and produced by Margaret Miller, is nearing completion after 10 years of principal photography, audio and music creation and unbelievably complex special effects – all on no budget.
It’s been a journey (longer than anyone expected), but to see this creation on the screen is just humbling, awe-inspiring and great fun! The dedicated cast and crew are recognized for their talent, commitment, enthusiasm and perseverance. Thank you very much!
Enjoy the trailer!!
There will be one more trailer after this and then the world premiere of Star Wars:Forgotten Realm!

Well, 9 years ago today we shot our first frame of Star Wars:Forgotten Realm.  This year's Star Wars Fan Film contest has a limit of 5 minutes per submission.  Our submission was uploaded on Thursday Jan. 15.

Star Wars:Forgotten Realm will be released spring 2015.  It has been a long road and we are looking forward to everyone seeing the full feature.

SW FR Trailer 2 AE from Darren Crawford on Vimeo.

Merry Christmas from the Star Wars:Forgotten Realm Post-Production Team. Enjoy the trailer for Act II of Star Wars:Forgotten Realm. The music, of course, is from John Williams. The Liquid Quiche Productions logo music was composed by Wally Kissel. The CG models and sets were created by Fractalsponge, James Bassett, Dugnaw127, and Treybor. Many thanks to Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory for allowing us to film on site. We are very appreciative of FVTV for allowing us to utilize their equipment and facility.  This movie would not have been possible without FVTV.  Cave background plates were taken by Cindy Arnold.

Well, it has been a year since the last post.  Ouch.  I'll have to improve on that.  Act II is still in post production.  There is an enormous amount visual effects in this act.  They range from a land battle between AT-ATs and a live action clone army to a Sith holocron revealing Darth Plagueis.  The Imperial briefing was filmed against a bluescreen and now the briefing room visual effects are complete.  The briefing room model  was created by Jan Jacob and is  a redress of the Jedi Temple briefing room.

The holocron effects are complete.  Josh O'Connell's perfomance was filmed against a bluescreen and then composited onto a background plate from the NuMI tunnel.

Holocron switching on due to Jedi blood that was available.

 Heck, we even have anamorphic lens flares for some of the lightsaber clashes.  The lens flares are created in Lightwave 3D V9.6 and then composited on top of the rotoscoped lightsabers Adobe After Effects CS4.

Jim Kirkhoff as Jarad Dunkin and Ted O'Sullivan as Darth Vader.
There's still a lot to do but I thought I would share some of these images and give an update to the blog.

It is unfortunate that the Star Wars Fan Film Challenge is no longer around.  It was a great venue for fans to showcase their vision and fascination of the Star Wars universe.
