"A quirky little film that retells the Battle of Yavin in a very different way" -  George Lucas

A long time ago in a warehouse far far away (in Van Nuys), Trey and Amy made a little spoof about one of the other pilots in that famous attack on the Death Star.   To our surprise it became a huge hit, garnering millions of views on Atomfilm and was selected by George Lucas himself for the Grand Prize in the official Lucasfilm Star Wars Fanfilm contest.   

So of course... we made sequels.

What started with two people and a bluescreen became a series of increasingly-elaborate short films made with the help of dozens of volunteer cast and crew.  

Along the way, the character of Stacy became a bit of a phenomenon.  We knew something was up when we met someone at a Star Wars convention who was wearing a Pink Five costume.  (We've met several others since.)

Stacy even holds the distinction of being the first fan-created Star Wars character to become an official Star Wars character - she makes a cameo appearance in Timothy Zahn's novel Allegiance.  

In case you're wondering - no, we didn't make any money from that.  

Which is fine by us.   The entire Pink Five series has been self-financed, with occasional help from donors.  (If you were already one of them, thank you!)

There are now four completed chapters of the Saga, and only one to go. The big finish.  The finale.  The End.    And that's where you come in...

* Note: If you want to combine a limited or standalone reward with another one, or have any other questions - email us at trey@pinkfive.com - we'll make sure you get the rewards you're looking for!   

Questions have you, hmm?

When will the final chapter be released?

  • If we reach our funding goal on September 5th, we'll be able to commit to a release date of January 1, 2013.   

Will you be selling the completed series on DVD?

  • No. Just as with the previous episodes, we'll be releasing the final chapter online. Our goal isn't to make a profit, just to make the video. (We are offering DVD's of the completed saga as rewards to our Kickstarter backers who want them, but those are the only ones we'll ever make!)
Won't you please help this poor girl?  Look at that face.  LOOK AT IT.
