Been lurking for awhile, but wanted to show you what Ive been working on for the past few years.
JHM Productions presents
Currently filming , in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Based on the characters and films of Akira Kurosawa and George Lucas, Our tribute to the great filmmakers of the sci-fi, action genres,who inspired me to follow my dreams to a galaxy, far, far, away…
Taking place ten years after the events of Episode 3-Revenge of the Sith.
After episode 3 ended, we know that all Jedi are extinct by the time of episode 4, and opens the door to our story, for these seven characters that survived the purge, so our characters will be new ones I have written and will focus on their fight against evil forces (not imperial, till the end at least).
Our story focuses on a gifted young girl and her mysterious father as they set out on a quest to find warriors to defend their planet from the invading marauder army. The marauder's pillage and purge the peaceful villages, reigning terror and destruction in their path. Lead by a mysterious dark warrior who instills fear in the eyes of all who encounter him.
On their quest to find those that will defend them, they come across an assortment of characters, which turn out to be Jedi in hiding. So they gather others in hiding who will fight. They come to aide the people,training them and building defenses as they get ready for the final battle against the marauders army, but their paths will soon collide with an even more terrifying threat…
Here are some pics of the various characters in costumes made my myself and and my bestest friend in the whole wide world my Mom(she passed away earlier this year) R.I.P.
Also a few screengrabs to give you an idea of the look and feel we will have for this film. Those of you familiar with the Original Kurosawa classic will note the attention to detail we emphasized on the re-imaging of this classic with our jedi counterparts..
