For our latest mission, we staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene from Star Wars on a New York City subway car.
This is one of over 100 different missions Improv Everywhere has executed since 2001 in New York City. Others include the Frozen Grand Central, the Food Court Musical, and the famous No Pants Subway Ride, to name a few. Visit the website to see tons of photos and video of all of our work, including behind the scenes information on how this video was made.
First animated short by amateur 3d film maker Ken Dunn offers an explanation of how the Empire tracked down those rebels with the stolen plans. All original models, sets, animation, and score make this a one man show taking place in the much [over] emulated STAR WARS universe. Many of the sets from the opening scenes of episode IV are reproduced in loving detail here in "Droid Rage" making it a worthy addition to a fan tradition.
Was rather happy when Lucasfilm sent mail saying that it gave them a giggle ;-)
Video was shot right after the party that YouTube invited us to - the "YouTube Mix" in Omotesando where we got to meet the co-founder of YouTube Steve Chen. T'was a great party.
This time round, the codpiece came off half way through so we didn't shoot that much this time. Going to glue that codpiece down and attempt to do some more dancing in another location around Tokyo.
Music by the fabulous group Uniting Nations
