Incredible Star Wars Anime Short Film “Tie Fighter”


Paul Johnson, an incredibly talented animator, made this wonderful Star Wars short film. Below you can see an amazing poster he created to accompany the short, check out the quote on his inspiration while creating it –

I always loved those really classy oil/acrylic-painted movie posters by folks like Drew Struzan, with all kinds of stuff going on in the background for you to spend ages dissecting with your eyes. You know the ones. So I wanted to try something like that, except in the cel-shaded style of the short film. The results are nowhere near the original Star Wars movie poster level of quality or composition, but I guess it does the job.
