2014 "May the 4th" Lucasfilm and Youtube Videos

May the 4th be with you!


In 2014, Lucasfilm and Youtube hired us to be a part of three new videos created by three top Youtube channels to promote "May the 4th."


They had a great concept: Provide three production companies with a beautiful set (created by Ryan Brett Puckett and his team!) and professional creatures and costumes by Tom Spina Designs and see what they can do in the Star Wars universe.


Over the course of a week, each crew came in for several days to shoot, and we greatly enjoyed working with the talented folks on all three teams! They all had great dedication to their crafts (and a real love for Star Wars!)



We had a lot of fun shooting these videos and always look forward to the chance to work on Star Wars projects!



Please watch the videos via links at the right and check out our photos from the set below those!

CLASH AT THE CANTINA


With hundreds of thousands of subscribers, tens of millions of channel views, and a serious passion for all things Star Wars, Corey's talented crew was a natural fit for this May the 4th project! Their video is a saber fight through a crowded cantina, which meant lots of extras and aliens for us to dress!

KID SNIPPETS: STAR WARS CANTINA


Star Wars - Imagined by kids! Another video with lots of alien extras, this time with some added silly fun! The actors from Bored Shorts lip synced along with a soundtrack provided by young kids hilariously acting out the cantina scene in their own words!


They've also got a Behind the Scenes video!

A pair of our faithful recreations of the cantina band from A New Hope.

Production was short extras so we got in on the act! You may spot Tom, Pat, Brian or John in the background of the videos!

Cast and crew after we wrapped on College Humor's shoot.

Greedo, played by Lucasfilm's Matt Martin, gets some air from Brian between takes.

We created the illusion of extra aliens without blowing the budget by swapping heads and costumes for the different shots.
