Star Wars Fan Awards

November 3, 2018

Lucasfilm is running an awards thing for fan art of all kinds (except fan fiction and comics), expanding from fan film awards in the past.

You can vote for long video, short video, visual art, and photos.  There are a lot of prequel-themed works in there!  So vote early and vote often!  (You can vote once a day.)

 

 

Oldie But Goodie Fan Video

This video was done back in 2011 and yeah, you can find more sophisticated editing and higher quality clips today but I always thought this song fit Padmé’s sad tale so well.

Revenge Of The Dank Memes

March 30, 2017

I don’t spend too much time on Reddit but I found out today through the magic of social media about /r/PrequelMemes.  According to Mashable, the subreddit has 134,000 and counting subscribers and has been the fastest growing non-default subreddit twice this past month.

As an aside, I have to disagree with a few things in the Mashable piece:  the prequels don’t need “saving,” not everybody hated them, and not everybody doing these have political motives.  I see it as fans finally finding their own space to freely celebrate their love of the movies without a bunch of douchebags telling them they’re wrong and stupid.  And on various “sithposting” pages on Facebook, there are a lot of prequel memes too.

Not everyone on the subreddit is a prequel fan per se but it seems after taking a look at several pages’ worth of entries, most of it is about having fun with the movies.  People routinely quote the movies in their comments.  This being Reddit, not all of the memes are family-friendly or politically-correct and a few are kind of NSFW.  So venture at your own risk.

But now I have this to use:

SWCO Art For Prequel Fans

March 15, 2017

Art show exclusives for SWCO were revealed today (the artists themselves were announced in January) and it looks like just about everything is TFA, Rogue One, or a tribute to Carrie Fisher.  But if you’re going to the con or a really nice friend of yours is picking up a piece for you, here are the PT-related pieces that might interest you:

Ahsoka fans should check out art from Lin Zy Busch and Danny Haas (Rebels era).  There’s one all Rebels piece from Alex Buechel.  Acme/Dark Ink will likely have pre-orders soon; the piece has to be picked up at the con.

This one was actually posted a month ago, before the TPM one and I don’t see an AOTC one yet.  But here’s the Box Office Artist’s tribute to ROTS.
