A New Hope: Death Star Repairmen and the Imperial News Relaunch

Welcome to the rebellion.

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy yada yada...

Darryl Gold, the mad mind behind the unique filmmaking challenge that is Darryl's Hard Liquor and Porn Film Festival (A short film comedy festival that challenges filmmakers the world over to make funny films on sex) and related event, The 69-Hour Challenge, made a fun little Star Wars fan film years ago called "Death Star Repairmen".

After many challenges with hosting and hackers, Darryl has moved the site and relaunched. So it's a good chance to share the film with all of you.

He's also relaunched a site I created to support his film. It's The Imperial News, the official newspaper of the Death Star and the Galactic Empire. I did articles, recipes, product reviews and fake comics etc. The site is back on the net here in its new home.

My work on The Imperial News eventually inspired this very blog, rebelalert.com. I still hope to find time to draw Star Wars based comics and gag stuff, in addition to writing about sci-fi and fandom.

But in the mean time, enjoy the dry humour and ridiculous bliss of Death Star Repairmen once again!, thanks to the fantastic folks at TheForce.net.
