A short film submitted to the ‘Star Wars Fan Film Competition’.

The brief required two Tusken Raiders – an elder and a younger Raider. The director didn’t want an exact copy of the ones in the films. It was decided these Raiders would be from a different tribe. Since the budget was small, op shop finds were repurposed, while their robes were made and stained in coffee, tea and acrylic paints. They are scavengers, after all!
