Thanks to @FBLTucker for tweeting this… Naturally with my company called Stay Puft I love this!
Return of the Ewok is a 24-minute mockumentary starring Warwick Davis, the actor who played the Ewok, Wicket W. Warrick in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and the Ewok spin-off films. Davis and David Tomblin, Return of the Jedi’s first assistant director, created it, with Tomblin directing. Lucasfilm planned to use the movie as a promotional film for Return of the Jedi, but post-production on the film was never completed.
The film is set in both the “real world” and the fictional locations of the Star Wars universe. Real world locations include an airport, Elstree Studios and the actors’ dressing rooms, while the fictional locations include Dagobah, the Death Star II, Jabba’s Palace, and Endor. Throughout the film, these two realities are intermixed to produce an alternate reality. (Wikipedia)
Fuck me a truly amazing Flickr stream from Bird of The Galaxy who should be given a medal for dedication to photographic archives. The coolest images I have found since the Star Wars rare images post. Inexplicably this was only on 1,000 views so let’s all give them a hand in making sure more know about this collection (the geek online bitch fights are ‘interesting’ too).
This set includes all of my photostream shots with identification clapboards, slates, or papers in the frame. In the original fan collecting days of Lincoln Enterprises and early conventions I recall my fellow fans did not like the clapper shots. Most thought these frames were inferior to fully visible unblocked scenes. It is important to remember this was pre-VCR, DVD, extensive syndication, etc., back in the early 1970s. Today, at least for me, a great wide angle clapper is a beautiful historical record of the production of TOS.
