A Word from Darren Scales
Director of "THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACKYARD"
So far, each film I have been involved with, gets a little more complicated, but none of us had any idea as to just how big The Empire Strikes Backyard was going to be. While we did not have the luxury of a large budget (only $1300), we still manged to produce 5 full size sets from wooden boards, card and tape! We had no idea that the film would become so big (or long!).
Everyone in the team new that something very special was being made. Fan films are still not very huge here in the UK so at a local level, we are film stars. Of course now we have moved into the big league on TFN, and whilst we now feel a bit more humble in our effort, we all remember the reat fun we had in making it. The acceptance by TFN to host our film is a testament to the dedication of the team who created it.
