The fear you run from does not lie within the world, it lies within her.

Jedi around the galaxy are being viciously hunted and killed by the evil Galactic Empire. Aware of the imminent danger, Jedi Master Boemana Tora and her Padawan Makal Lori, flee to the outer rim systems close to the planet of Lothal.

Every once and awhile, a project comes along that makes you smile and say yes just to be a part of the immense fun that will be had creating it. STAR WARS: EXILE is a true labor of love crafted by co-directors Noel Braham and Pokey Spears. Both acting and directing on this project, Chance knew his role as assistant director would be to help guide them on their journey to capture their vision of this grand universe where they are introducing a diverse cast of bold new characters. It was an amazing opportunity and a surreal experience says Chance, “The mist of the Los Angeles mountains was rolling in at 6am and I’m talking with my good friend Will Myers, we both turn and there is Darth Vader walking down towards us – backlit by the glowing sky… There are few moments in life that blend reality with cinema into a singular experience. That’s Star Wars. Its the fantastic made real. Cannot thank Noel and Pokey enough for the opportunity.

The collaboration went so well that both Braham and Spears called upon Chance to help in post production as a producer – giving critical feedback and connecting the team with key talent like composer Ryan Leach and sound designer Michael Kao.

Star Was: Exile premiered at the historic Vista Theater down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles and is exhibiting in film festivals nationwide along with being selected at one of only 25 short films in the official STAR WARS FAN FILM AWARDS.
