The amazing costumes and props in our project come from the 501st Legion's Redback Garrison and the Qld Rebel Legion. Two groups who specialise in superior Star Wars costume development and recognise themselves as a non-profit organisation, providing entertainment and charity events for the less fortunate, such as this years' event at Dreamworld, which brought together more than 70 characters, including Stormtroopers, Jedi, Aliens and all the like to raise money for Qld Premier's Flood Appeal . They have also held events for the Red Cross and The Starlight Foundation.

Unpaid – all money on behalf of the 501st and Rebel legion’s involvement will be donated to a charity of their choice.
Food will be provided for all cast members and we will make sure everyone is well fed.

Last year we experimented with a short script/film, which then evolved into something much bigger. We have developed a strong story that fits within the confines of the Star Wars universe and does not break outside the boundaries of significant events that hardcore fans have come to love.

--Key facts--Information--

Unfortunately, we are not accepting any cast applications for Stormtrooper/Alien roles as they will be taken by the members of the latter 2 organisations who have direct access to the costumes. If you have contacts with replica Star Wars costumes/replica props(not toys!) of any kind that you believe could compliment our production please apply within.

The 1st act will entirely take place in a forest located in Coomera, Gold Coast, QLD. The final 2 acts will take place in a rain-forest in SE QLD, which is yet to be confirmed.

Despite rumors online, the Yuuzhan Vong alien warrior has NOT been confirmed for production in our project, however it hasn't been ruled out as of yet...

We have had preliminary VFX shots take place as far away as the UK for specific scenes.

Interest in our project has come from many talented people, including a Swordsmen who worked with Nick Gilliard, the Fight Co-ordinator of the Star Wars prequels.

We are striving to bring elements,weapons and aliens from the Star Wars universe yet to be shown in media.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Hello Cast, Crew, Actors, Actresses!
For the December shoot, we will now ONLY be filming a few minutes of Storm trooper-only scenes, so no Jedi. This will allow us to stay a few steps ahead for post-production, focus on costume design/fight sequences & take our time with casting for a TBA date for a 1st Quarter 2012 production,likely March. Auditions will be announced in the coming weeks for sometime in December.
