Star Wars Revelations (2005)

Una recreación algo simplona pero entretenida realizada por un numeroso grupo de fans, basada en la famosa saga de la factoría de George Lucas, realizada hace tres años y que he podido descubrir recientemente. Distribuida de forma gratuita a través de la página de Panic Struck Productions, los realizadores de esta corta pero intensa película de unos 45 minutos de duración, ofrecen una muy particular visión de Star Wars, utilizando medios de bajo presupuesto con un alto nivel técnico, en cuanto a maquetación, efectos visuales y post-producción. No se lucen demasiado con la puesta en escena, ni mucho menos convencen sus protagonistas en su forma de actuar, muy propia de un ambiente teatral que desluce por completo el resultado final, pero para ser una película "amateur" con unos buenos efectos especiales, bien vale la pena su visionado.

Actores desconocidos y poco convincentes en un film donde reconocemos a varios de los personajes que han marcado a varias generaciones: Darth Vader, R2D2, las tropas de asalto y algunos de los extravagantes extraterrestres (reconocibles como aquellos viejos visitantes de Tattoine y la taberna donde Luke Skywalker y el maestro Obi-Wan Kenobi buscaban la manera de escapar al asedio del Imperio y reunirse con los rebeldes).

"Revelations was started with a hope and desire to create a low-budget independent film with a big-budget production value. With affordable technology and a pool of talented artists around the world, we wanted to see how far Panic Struck Productions could take it. Everyone involved in the film is a volunteer and no one was paid to work or be involved in this project. The film is a combined effort to artists, industry professionals, and fans, all working together in a dedicated effort to produce a high-end film.

First off, "Revelations" is a non-profit film. That's right, we cannot make money from "Revelations" nor would we want to. Star Wars is a registered trademark of Lucas Film LTD. and it is through George Lucas' kindness he allows young filmmakers to play in his wonderful world. Being huge fans ourselves we would want, if anything, to promote and share the magic and love of the star wars films and what it's creator brought to the industry and audiences around the world.

Revelations will be FREE for everyone to download (and hopefully enjoy) here online.

How it started:

Being fans, we have been watching and enjoying Star Wars fan films for sometime and when Kevin Rubio's "Troops" came out it really spawned the thought of, "Hey, that is excellent! We could do that!" and then a few other inspired films like "Knight Quest" and "Duality" (to name a few) came out and that clinched it for us. For years we had been talking about doing a film, and so to back the writer in a corner I went online to Ebay and purchase the camera for the film. This was the biggest expense for "Revelations" ($4500 - Canon XL1S with case and accessories) With this money spent we were now committed, (and poorer) so pre-production started.

Now for myself, I had done college TV/Film (got my directing degree) and worked as an actor in NY and such for a number of years, but I had never taken on a project as large and complex as "Revelations." We wanted to prove independent film could produce high quality films and show what panic Struck Productions could do for little money. Plus is was a dream we always wanted to live... Star Wars."


Juzgad vosotros mismos. Si tuviera que calificarla por varios conceptos (argumento, escenificación, música, efectos especiales, etc), le pondría un aprobado (6.5 de 10) de nota media.
