About

Hello there! My name is Tessa Pinkerman and I am the creator of the Star Wars fan film The Chase. I enjoy Star Wars very much as do most Star Wars fans. As much as I love having one Star Wars fan film under my belt, I wanted to give everyone a backstory to it, a prequel to show what everyone was like and how some of them meet before The Chase.

The prequel is called Dawn of the Chase and it tells of the life of Marissa, the Jedi Knight in the Chase. Along the way you will see: Colkar, Marissa's childhood friend turned Sith; Morgetes, Marissa's first apprentice who turns Sith as well; Vilvi, Morgetes's friend and fellow Sith in the Chase; and Botu, Marissa's apprentice in the events of The Chase. There will be a few new characters in the film, but we will be focusing on those five characters the most. 

I know $7,000 is a lot, but all of this goes into making the best outcome of the film as we can. The money will go towards:

1. Costumes

2. Props

3. Lightsabers

4. Set building supplies

5. Makeup

6. Production costs(food, transportation, etc.)

7. Green screens/boom mics/light reflectors

8. T-shirts for 50 of you guys

9. Posters for 50 of you guys

10. Securing Locations

11. Post-production(CGI/VFX/etc.)

Most of the original cast and crew will be returning to reprise their roles from The Chase. Everyone else wasn't able to because they are busy or have moved out of state and we will miss them dearly.

1. Tessa Pinkerman as Marissa

2. Alex Perez as Botu

3. Reign Murphy as Vilvi and a makeup artist

4. Caroline Sheely as a makeup artist

I finished the script a couple of months ago and am starting to assemble my team to start pre-production. After pre-production, a boot camp for the actors and crew will start around mid May and after that, filming will officailly start around mid June then continue till we wrap. Since we have more time to prepare the lightsaber fights will be stepped up to a whole new level as you follow the characters journey from . There will be some hand to hand combat in one or two scenes.

If you don't just want to donate to the campaign, then you're in luck! We do need help with Lightsaber and blaster effects, sound effects, Visual Effects and CGI for the film. Your name will be put into the editor section, not just as an associate or executive producer.

This means a lot to me to bring a prequel to my first ever Star Wars fan film. To show everyone what happened leading up to The Chase and how they got there. To share my passion for Star Wars with everyone and to gain insight into my chosen career path. All in all, I do it for the thrill of Star Wars, the improvement of myself and my team's skills, and to entertain the world.

Risks and challenges

Risks: the weather, where everyone is distance-wise, filming locations, filming equipment, props, sets, and costumes
Challenges: getting everyone to the set, building the sets, finding filming locations, finding the right equipment props and costumes, schedules
All of these factors are sometimes unknown factors, but we will do what we can not what we can't, even if that means switch around schedules to get it done or braving the cold, rain, or heat. I will do what I can, and I will get the film out as soon as possible. I promise.
