WATCH TIE Fighter on Star Wars Day

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, May 4, 2015

May the Fourth Be with You, as we celebrate Star Wars Day by checking out animator/artist Paul Johnson's breathtakingly awesome TIE Fighter, a short animation done in the good ol' 80s style while giving the perspective from the Empire. 



For the ultimate "geekasm"-filled goosebumps, look no further than the second teaser trailer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens


"Chewie... we're home."



But for our annual heartfelt "May the 4th Be with You" greetings, we felt compelled to move past our undead obsession for the film that will reach us on right before Christmas (18th December). Yes, StarWars.com is already marking the occasion by making the entire Season One of Star Wars Rebels available to stream online for free. But right now, we make amends on something pretty freaking awesome that we have missed out months earlier by checking it out on this timely occasion.


Released online back in late March, TIE Fighter is a short animation done in the good ol' 80s style while giving the perspective from the Empire courtesy of the magical works of animator/artist Paul Johnson, who took four long years to complete this entirely fan-based yet utterly incredible homage. In the YouTube description, Johnson explains the short animated film:


What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that's all but vanished from Japan nowadays? 
Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.

Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years' worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts' seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day...

With no further ado, the film come fully equipped with awesome 80s-style anime artwork and an amazing soundtrack. And they are right below with the embedded link.



And with no further ado, check out the seven-minute animated short right below.




Here are some of the screenshots from the short animation.
