The Force Among Us II is not a "fan film" - It is a highly produced film with a budget of over $20,000.00 made by very passionate star wars fans - it is the sequel to the highly praised The Force Among Us. It will be release this year.
Description

The Force Within Us, the sequel to the highly acclaimed and sold out documentary “The Force Among Us”, takes us deeper into the Star Wars experience than just the obsession of collectibles and costuming. Exploring how and why this epic saga has the ability to possess and alter lives, “The Force Within Us” centers on Star Wars as a catalyst for spiritual rebirth… finding personal meaning in life… and inspiring positive change. 


Filmmaker Cris Macht takes you on a journey revealing that Star Wars is more than just another sci-fi film to watch or convention to attend. It exposes personal connections that are developed through the sagas good versus evil storyline, and the hope that good ultimately triumphs in our world as well as in a galaxy far, far away. Also featured are thought provoking stories from Star Wars celebrities and how being a part of the phenomenon has changed their lives. Familiar Star Wars locations, like the Death Valley (Tatooine) and the Redwood Forest (Endor), add to the deep, emotional journey that is “The Force Within Us.”

The DVD will be Region 0, meaning it will be playable on any DVD player or computer in any country. 

WHAT AM I SUPPORTING

Funding or not, this film will be released this year! The question is, will the producers have to remain in Credit Card debt to do it!  We sincerely hope not… So far, the entire production has been self-financed. As we enter into the home stretch, we're hoping to raise at least $10,000.00 (+)  to help mitigate costs while we finish everything off. This includes credit card debt, some post-production work, travel,producing the DVDs, etc....
