Comox Valley Star Wars fan film premiering in July

Star Gazer Productions, a local Comox Valley business, has recently finished a Star Wars short fan film.

Christopher Ouellette, director of photography and executive producer, has a keen imagination which he shares through his passion for filming and photography, with the intent of telling stories through his visual media.

The Star Wars film Captive was shot in the Comox Valley with talented actors and crew from Comox and surrounding areas.

The 20-minute short film encompasses the struggles of two brothers making their way through good and evil, holds suspense and action throughout, with a plot that will surprise viewers in the end.

The premiere for Captive will be held Friday, July 6. Doors open at 6 p.m. at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College, with a Q&A after the film. Parking lot “A” is closest to the theatre.

The premiere is open to the public with free admission and refreshments.

Dress can be formal, casual or even a Star Wars Costume.

Due to limited seating, those interested are requested to email and confirm the number of people attending in their group.

May the force be with you!
