Welcome to Fan Film Friday! Today I’m sharing a 2016 Star Wars fan film, TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story (Full Directors Cut) by Unboxed Films.
The Full Directors Cut clocks in at 12:15 in length, whereas the original, which won the 2016 Filmmaker Select Award at Star Wars Celebration Europe, clocks in at 5:00 long.
TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story, is the gritty tale of a loyal Imperial Stormtrooper who is forced to confront his past in the heat of an epic battle.
The costumes, special effects, and sound for the film are amazing and can pass for professional work. There are times you forget you are actually watching a fan film. The actors do a fine job as well portraying the person under the suit of armor and those on the Rebel side. The full version goes into more detail on where the trooper has been and more time is spent with the past he confronts in the battle. Overall a job well done here and will worth the win.
Check out the film below. I’ve included the Directors Cut as well as the 5 minute award winning cut.
