Star Wars fans are a dedicated bunch, and the fan filmmakers, even more so, with short films like this demonstrating that you don’t need much budget to create a stunning piece if you have the dedication. Dedication is certainly what seems to have resulted in the jaw-droppingly gorgeous fan film we have here, titled Darth Maul: Apprentice, which shines the spotlight again on the main villain from The Phantom Menace. Taking a whole two years to bring to reality, German filmmaker Shawn Bu stuffed the 18-minute short chock full of dazzling lightsaber battles set amongst lush forest backdrops. The top-notch makeup, special effects, cinematography, costumes, location and props all add up to an immersive experience that easily rivals any blockbuster action movie in cinemas right now. Once you’re done watching, head here for a look into the film’s arduous behind-the-scenes work.
