Brain Break: Star Wars Gets James Bond Treatment in Awesome Fan-Made Video
The name is Skywalker, Luke Skywalker. And he prefers his Death Stars exploded, not stirred. The above video Star Wars -- Episode V "The Empire Strikes Back" Homage (Title Sequence) was created by Kurt Rauffer ( KROFL) for his senior thesis at the School of Visual Arts. We really hope he got an A.
"After re-watching The Empire Strikes Back, I decided to use this as a chance to create an homage in the form of a title sequence," Rauffer said in a post accompanying the video. "The style and tone of the animation was inspired by the James Bond title sequences. The music was a rejected song from the newest Bond film, Spectre, sung by Radiohead. I really wanted to play on the concept of Luke trying to find himself and true purpose, so the music and inspiration felt fitting."
The Force is strong with this one!
