Cool Short: Stormtroopers

Micheál Fitzgerald got in touch to share this fantastic Star Wars short film he made.

Stormtroopers is a fan film about a platoon of Stormtroopers who raid a remote Rebel Mining outpost.

Fitzgerald said, “I wrote and directed it to demonstrate that strong complex female characters can lead a high quality Irish sci-fi film and showcase the broader young production talents that exist in Ireland.”

Stormtroopers was filmed in Ireland on location in Cork, Waterford & Tipperary and it premiered 200ft underground in Mitchelstown Cave in April. It stars Carolyn Bracken as a Veteran Stormtrooper with Klancy Casey Williams as a Rebel Lieutenant. It also stars Peter Cosgrove, Micheal Fitzgerald, Michael Stack and Melissa Ciepierski.

It is this kind of thing that reminds me how much potential Star Wars has for different types of stories. A great short film and well worth a few minutes of your time.
