Short Film: ‘First Person Darth Vader’ Puts You Behind the Red Lightsaber

First Person Darth Vader

Why Watch? The Stunt People have done a lot of cool stuff, including teaching John McClane krav maga, and their new First Person Darth Vader series is a thrilling display of fight choreography and GoPro camera work.

With a wisp of story, this short exists almost solely to put you into the fight– often behind the wheezing mask of Anakin Skywalker himself. The transitions are smooth, and the design of the lightsaber clash has enough downtime to intensify the midi-chlorian-fueled battle when it overheats. Experimental, yes, and it’ll probably be jarring for some, but it’s definitely a cool project that deserves some attention.

What Will It Cost? Just over 2 minutes.
