There’s nothing we like more here at the Time Warriors than Star Wars and discovering new talent. We are delighted to show you the first movie from a brilliant new young filmmaker from Galway, Adam O’Brien. Adam is the son of the multi talented filmmaker/writer/director/all rounder Nigel O’Brien whose other work you can find here on the site. Using Lego Star Wars figures, Adam directed the mini movie and did the camera work while Dad Nigel edited it for him. I have to say I really enjoyed this; it’s so much fun. What will happen when the Empire comes up against the dreaded Beast of Endor who looks remarkably like Joey the Pug. Will even Vader flee in terror? Can our heroes persuade the Beast to help them defeat Count Dooku and his armies?
This just shows you what you can do with a small budget and a wealth of imagination. Adam has a great future ahead of him and Disney, if you need writers and directors that actually know how to make Star Wars well, myself, Nigel and Adam are waiting patiently for the call.
