TIE Fighter – short film (video)

If you were to combine Heavy Metal with Star Wars, this might be the result.

Animator Paul Johnson:

What if there was an Empire-focussed (sic) short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays?


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.

The result is quite a thrill!
