When one of the creators of Bucketheads met the 501st Legion (specifically members of the Outer Rim Garrison) they realized that an opportunity was right in front of them. The members had the love of Star Wars, the knowledge of the lore, and most importantly…the screen accurate costumes that would make an amazing fan film possible. While the Legion and Garrison are not officially affiliated with the project, many members on their own time decided to join the team.
Over the course of a single long weekend the original short story was filmed with the help of a dedicated group of filmmakers who shared the love of the genre. On December 8th, 2018 it was released to the world on YouTube. To date the film has over 2 million views, a dozen Film Festival award wins, and many more nominations. Thank you so much to the fans who showed such amazing support!
Now the team at Transmute Pictures has released episode one of their 5 episode miniseries going further into the Star Wars lore of the Stormtroopers.
