Birmingham director Lee Kemp is running a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise £28,217 for his short Star Wars film, Padawan Rising.
Based in Birmingham since 2010, Kemp has been developing the film for over two years, collaborating with his experienced team of professionals.
With less than a day to go, the campaign has not yet reached its target, so, for any Star Wars fans who’d like to see this short film become a reality, you can help Kemp and his team see their vision come to fruition by pledging money to their project through Kickstarter now.
The film follows Kano, a young Jedi in training, who must learn responsibility when she comes across a real enemy in the Star Wars universe. Supported only by her re-configured Pit Droid R-KS1, an invading foe provides her with the chance to test her powers.
Working with writer Poz Watson, cinematographer Karl Poyzer, and composer Kevin Ripel, VFX supervisor Kraig Winterbottom, and Head of Stunts Mark Johnston, Kemp hopes to release his 14-minute long film on Youtube by raising funds through Kickstarter.
Incentives to pledge money start at giving £8 where you’ll receive a digital download of the finished film, whilst larger donations are rewarded with advanced screenings of the film, merchandise, and even props.
The deadline to donate is at 7 pm on April 3 2018. To donate, click here.
