REBEL SCUM • BEHIND THE SCENES
Rebel Scum was filmed over a period of 2 months at the Columbia Icefields in Alberta Canada on the Athabasca Glacier. Due the nature of the hostile environment a custom thermal rig was built to keep the cameras from freezing in -30C/-22F. Nearly all visual effects have been achieved without the use of CGI using time-honored methods such a stop-motion animation.
"What sets Rebel Scum apart from other Star Wars fan films, and in fact other independent productions in general, is that all the effects were done using old school, traditional methods. No computer animation, no particle effects – just models, miniatures, and matte painting. Oh, and the backgrounds aren’t fake. They’re the real deal." - Krypton Radio (Read full article here: http://kryptonradio.com/2015/05/25/video-of-the-day-rebel-scum-fan-film-trailer/)
