Star Wars Saturday: Invasion Los Angeles

Leave a comment

Here’s another example of why Star Wars fans kinda rule.invasionla

Kaipo Jones, today’s shining example of Star Wars fandom’s awesomeness, created a short film depicting the Empire attacking Los Angeles. It’s pretty amazing what Jones was able to pull off in terms of believable special effects. But it’s clear Jones is a detail-oriented artist and fan. I loved the light blue, orbiting Death Star. But the sound effects are what make it feel truly Star Wars–make sure your speakers are turned up.

Jones riddled the video with so many references, there’s also an accompanying easter eggs video to invite viewers on the mostly Disney-oriented scavenger hunt. To get a list of them, click through to the YouTube comments.

Jones also created a behind-the-scenes video to show how he created it. What a guy!
