Production Details

This was the very first film I ever made. I was a member of the media club in junior high school grade 7. A classmate of mine Jeff Kushner and I had high aspirations and wanted to make our own STAR WARS movie. We would use Kenner's action figures as actors. It would be shot on Super 8 film. We only had three and a half minutes to work with, so we chose our favorite scenes from STAR WARS and we would recreate them. The camera had a single-frame feature, so we would animate our toys and ships.
