Star Wars Spin-Off Film

Mark Twitchell isn’t a typical Star Wars fan. Rather than collect countless plastic toys or blog online with closet sci-fi nerds, he indulges his hobby in its “purest” form: film.

The 27-year-old Edmonton director begins shooting a feature-length independent Star Wars spin-off film at NAIT Saturday, and has amassed $60,000 to bring his dream to life.

“I’m the only guy crazy enough to do this, because I’m not allowed to turn a profit. The film is for hardcore fans who miss the character development of the original trilogy.” – Edmonton News – Star Wars spin-off film shooting locally
