The Rebel Legion has been very helpful with the local Star Wars fanfilm, the Clone Wars Saga, both members of Echo Base, and from other bases across the states. We'd like to thank you for your participation and help. Recently we had one of our most fun shoots ever, with some face characters, a route not often ventured by the fanfilmers, and again, that's all thanks to people like you! You might recognize some of your fellow costumers in this:

We are still looking for help with the project, if any of you happen to be interested in helping with this project we are still looking for help both with costuming and actors (if you are a Jedi, this is especially directed at you!).

Unfortunately our great costume designer left for personal reasons lately, and we are looking to fill the void there. This time, to alleviate the stress, we are asking for multiple designers, each with individual small projects. Our concept artist is back with some really cool designs, so if you have any interest on working on one of those, just contact me at HowardFilms@yahoo.com

Until then, thanks to all members of Echo Base who have been a help to the production so far. We are happy to be bringing together Star Wars fans of all types in this local project, and it is growing bigger by the day!

Looks good, man. A trilogy of fan films is very ambitious. How long you plan each of them to be?

In what part of the country is this film being made? I see your from Echo Base but you have actors from Texas and Virginia.

As a suggestion on future BTS videos, I would trim the interviews down to the best sound bites and cover them with lots of b-roll of people shooting on the set, acting, etc. Although I'm not sure how much b-roll you have. The interviewees can tell their story verbally while we see interesting things from the set, which is always more exciting then seeing their faces.

What format are you recording to?

Hey,

First of, we are doing this in Maryland. Most of everything is happening at our studio in Westminster.

As for your notes on the video, that is true. We have tons of B roll material, but this video's purpose was two fold: to show the face characters and what their deal was (this was intended for the fanfilm community, you see) and also as sort of a tribute to Adam, our crewman who recently died, and took a lot of the interviews and such.

We will have an hour long documentary at the end of the production for the station that is allowing us to use their facilities to air that will be far more professional, and have more time taken towards putting it togteher. This was just more of a peek for people who have been following the project and wanted to know what we had been doing.

As a Regional Captain,
I would like to let everyone know that a few of our members here in MD have had issues with MR Howard, and would recomend all Legion members not to be a part of the projects.

I have spoken to MD legion members and Legion command about the issues that had arose, I will not go into what issues that arose here as I feel that would not be right in this setting.

We have wished MR Howard well with the projects, These and all furture Projects..
