Fan film uses drone footage to stage an epic Star Wars dogfight

What do you get when you combine the new Star Wars drones, action figures, GoPro-style cameras and some capable effects work? A weird, white-knuckle dogfight unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

A team of fan filmmakers used all the aforementioned goodies to create the fan film Drone Star Wars, which is four minutes of very fun insanity. They even kicked in some digital effects to bring the classic viewpoints you’d expect, from the back of an X-Wing (complete with an R2 unit), plus the cockpit of a TIE Fighter. Of course, there are also ample laser blasts (this is a dogfight, after all).
