A fan film based off of, the science fiction novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic - Revan by Drew Karpyshyn, produced by diehard fans

About this project

Project Revan is the combined efforts of a group of serious and talented adults, creating the (unofficial) Star Wars independent film based off the book, Star Wars - The Old Republic: Revan by Drew Karpyshyn.

We have contacted Lucas Arts, and BioWare, for legal consent and permission to use the book's content as our guide for story boarding. Having done so, we have also contacted Drew Karpyshyn, the author of the book, for official rights to carry out the production of this film.

This is a non-profit fan film - Limitless Productions LLC is a non-profit company.

A majority of the members of Project Revan have several years of experience in theater, filming, visual effects and production. Steven Shulgach, and Andrei Shulgach are both involved in the YouTube partnership, creating regular videos on a monthly basis.

Steven Shulgach - A young and passionate film maker of the YouTube community, Steven's talents and three years of experience, reflect in his visual effects work and as a cinematographer. As the director of photography and editor of this film, he finds new ways to challenge himself, supports his passion by pushing the limits to produce quality work to the best of his abilities.

Andrei Shulgach - Young but talented, Andrei is using his past experiences in sound design and in the YouTube partnership program to the big screen. Aside from sound, he contributes to the project as the main graphics design artist and the assistant director to make sure that he is always pushing his creativity's potential. With his extreme dedication, he will not stop until his work reaches a professional quality.

Jonathan Shulgach - To create a motion picture of the size this team is shooting for, the work behind it all goes directly to the producer: Jonathan has spent countless hours preparing for each day in production. He shows his passion and enthusiasm in this film in his work, creating quality costumes, props, and devoting all the time he puts in this project. Jonathan is as professional as a young producer can get.

David Barnett - A young but enthusiastic individual, who, as the founder of this project, sees the potential in his work. David has initialized the project, bringing it up to speed, and motivated the team to get the film where it is now. He reflects his talents in the screenplay and actor support in the film. Without David, this film wouldn't exist.

Visual Effects:

Here we have a short video compilation of a few of the visual effects shot in the film: These are drafted and are subject to change/be polished. Enjoy!

Redeemed Jedi Knight, Revan, has saved the galaxy from the threat of his apprentice, Darth Malak, and has brought peace to the galaxy and to his wife, Bastilla. However, long forgotten memories from his once dark past convict him to search the galaxy for the evil threat that he and Malak ventured out to find once before.

On the Imperial center of Drommund Kaas, Scourge, a Sith Pureblood, has been sent by order of the Emperor himself, where he is admitted into the investigation services for dark council member, Darth Nyriss, due to multiple assasination attempts. Nyriss orders Scourge to investigate the real culprits. After executing dark council member and traitor to the Empire, Darth Xedix, Scourge learns that Darth Nyriss herself is among the rebels. After a visit to the long lost homeworld of the emperor, he understand the true intentions of his raw destructive  power and the necessity of stopping him.

Meanwhile, with the help of Revan's droid, T3-M4, and his companion, Canderous Ordo, they venture out on the Ebon Hawk towards the icy planet of Rakeed in search of clues to Revan's past. They find the mask of Mandalore that Revan hid many years ago, which unlocks the hidden memory of a storm covered world where Revan's memory is blocked. Canderous chooses to stay with his people to reunite them under the leadership of the new Mandalore, while Revan and T3-M4 venture out to find clues by visiting the emperor's homeworld where his fate remains unknown, and the crossing paths of these powerful beings will determine the fate of the galaxy...

We want to give our fans the opportunity to be apart of this movie by contributing in any way they can. That is why we have promoted our project here, through Kickstarter, to increase the project's publicity and grow the awareness of the project to all the fans of the Knight's of the Old Republic, and Star Wars. Being Star Wars fans ourselves, we are producing this movie with accuracy from the already story and background information.

We ask for only what we need; $5,000 will cover the expenses we have encountered thus far. Although this is the MINIMUM goal, a higher budget will most definitely raise the quality in various aspects of this project and the film.

The Production Plan:

We are using a majority of the Adobe Suite, including but not limited to, After Effects, Premier Pro, and several audio mixing software, to produce top quality work, while collaborating with past experiences.

We are raising funds for the ability and confidence to carry out each day throughout the whole production, while maintaining our best quality work.

In short, the more funds we acquire, the more awesome lightsabers, the hotter the explosions, the higher quality costumes, and more awesome rewards!

Risks and challenges

As many of you know, there are a lot of fan films out there, especially on YouTube, and the expectations of some viewers are set as: "Oh, this is another one of those backyard movies created by youngsters...". This isn't one of your average films. This is high quality movie production, without the crazy extravaganza Hollywood budget, that we are taking on as professionally as possible; hence our next step here on Kickstarter.

We are more than confident that this Kickstarter page will be successful, and we all we ask for is your support. With the amazing backers of Kickstarter (we thank you!), and the talented crew, we WILL produce one wicked Star Wars movie!
