Fan Movie Profile: Star Wars In A Notebook

Posted By TFN on August 7, 2009



Over on the Official Star Wars Blog, Bonnie Burton sat down with Oscar Fabián Triana Méndez, creator of "Star Wars In A Notebook", winner for the Best Animated Movie at this year’s Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge at San Diego Comic-Con.

See the excerpt from the interview below:

Q: "What prompted you to make a Star Wars fan film? How have George Lucas and his films influenced your work?

A: I have been following the fan films and the Atom site for a really long time — way back to high school. For years I wanted to enter the Fan Movie Challenge but I never had enough time to make a film until this year. I have always loved all things about heroes, robots, outer space, as any kid, and years later in college. Star Wars was, and is, the obligated reference as a key piece on the audiovisual medium.

My first contact with the films was halfway through middle school, a couple of years before Episode I. When I saw the original movies on VHS, and the new one in the cinema, I was blown way! I even made a pod racer model for a physics class. It was the time when I was thinking, “Hmm, what I’m going to do? What career fits best for me?” Watching the “making of” TV specials, and interviews with the artists behind the movies I said, as many people have been doing on the last 30 years, “This is something that I want to do; create amazing worlds, characters and adventures!”
