A few weeks ago I attended the premiere of a Star Wars fan film. This time I opted to wrangle instead of showing up in costume and it was really nice to mix it up a bit. The short film was made by a UCSD student and was shot locally. Due to the unpredictably of film making The Dark Resurgence was two years in the making, so it was extra special to get to attend the premiere of such an anticipated project. The premiere was held at UCSD’s Price Center Theater. I had a blast hanging out with my fellow 501st Legion members, as well as members of Rebel Legion, and the Mandalorian Mercs. As a group, we mingled with guests and enjoyed the reactions of students realizing there were Star Wars characters on campus.
The film itself was quite impressive, especially the costuming and visual effects. I enjoyed watching the film as well as the Q&A session afterward. Overall, it was a great experience and I hope to attend more fan film premieres in the future!
