The dialogue and acting aren't particularly memorable, but the scope of the visuals and the overall world-building elements are just splendid. The music's evocative (if a trifle loud for my tastes). And it packs a surprising emotional punch, as well.
In other words, it's pretty much a perfect homage to its source material, right?
KARA is a short fan film set in the Star Wars universe.
Check it out; it's great "behind-the-curtain" stuff:
I decided to create a narrative in the Star Wars universe honestly because I’d been doing quite a few commercials last year, and felt the need to tell some stories again. Since that first Force Awakens trailer came out, I got real antsy about its release — I’ve been a SW fan since I was like 5 years old, drawing X-Wings on paper all the time. I don’t know what the “spark” point was, really … I just thought it would be kind of the perfect playground for me to mess around in. It was just like the Tesla commercial for me — I wanted to tell my own story in a universe I knew so well. I wanted to contribute to the world not just by supporting Force Awakens, but by adding my personal voice to it as well. I also really wanted to exercise narratively in preparation for other projects to come! It just seemed like it had to be this way.
