You never know who you run into through following your passion!

By the time we released our first making of articles and the behind the scenes galleries, we got an interesting message from Mr. Will Torres, a professional comic book artist from the United States. Based in New Jersey, Will is a big Star Wars fan who has created artwork for a variety of publications, including The Walking Dead Magazine. Will had seen our pictures floating in the net and contacted us with an amazing offer to create an exclusive piece of artwork for our Star Wars fan film!

We were of course honored to include Will in spreading The Twelve Parsec Stare gospel! Mr. Torres incorporated the lead characters in our movie into his artwork, which is made to resemble a classic comic book cover. Will used our production photos as a reference and got to know the story to put the artist into the mood for a great piece. Communication with the artist couldn't have been better and exchanging excited messages and inspiration was effortless and fun.

We'd like to thank Will again for the collaboration and wish him well in his future endeavors! The artist can be reached through his portfolio page, check it out!

The Twelve Parsec Stare poster work

It's time for a little update on the post production of The Twelve Parsec Stare!

Although you'll still have to wait a while for the next production diary, we're happy to report progress on the film itself! Our crew has pushed the edit to its final stages and we already have a number of effect shots at the ready. In addition to the visual accomplishments the music and sound departments have been set into motion. It's amazingly inspiring to see things move forward and we're still ambitious enough to say the film will be out in May!

What else is new is that we've finished the official poster for the film (and a couple of alternative variants). The fans of Spaghetti Western might recognize a resemblance with a certain movie poster from the classic Dollars Trilogy...

We're also taking this opportunity to wish happy birthday to The Twelve Parsec Stare's hardworking cinematographer Mathias Lönnström! Cheers buddy!

An atmospheric variant.

And a simplified design. What do you guys think?
