Elimination: A Star Wars Story is a Star Wars fan film that takes place during Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. This story depicts the downfall of the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker through the perspective lens of his ex-girlfriend, Aerith Laverne-Solo. The story explores Anakin's discovery of the fact that he still has feelings for Aerith, and his struggle to balance those feelings and save his wife, Padmé, from dying of childbirth.
As you can see, the production values are not on the level that I would like them to be. With the funds from this Patreon Page, I hope to increase production values with upgraded costumes, practical sets, real droids made with blueprints from astromech.net, screen accurate costumes, and much more! I also plan to budget to be able to pay a full crew, so I don't have to direct, operate both the camera and the boom, and the list goes on. I simply want to focus on directing.
I am aware that this project is ambitious, but I feel that with the necessary funds, I could pull it off! And yes, I know that you probably don't want to hear another "My film is visually crappy, so give me money so I can make it better" speech, so I am going to level with you.

I was diagnosed with multiple medical problems. I have tried to get access to the care needed to fix these problems, but my insurance doesn’t even want to pay for doctors that I can access. They have repeatedly refused to do so for arbitrary reasons. I am not even 30 years old. The last thing I want on this Earth is to die. There is so much that I want to do that I haven’t gotten to do, but the odds are currently stacked against me. If you can help me make this film a reality, I’ll have crossed at least one big thing off of my bucket list, and if I do end up dying, I’ll have something to be proud of before I go. If you can all spare at least $1, or share this with someone who can, you’ll be helping me get that much closer to achieving my dream. And I will love you forever for it.

My actors have been fully committed throughout the entire process and are very talented! I am located in LA, where there are plenty of resources within a short proximity, and being a film student certainly helps! I plan to enter this fan film into the Official Star Wars Fan Film Awards and want to have the best possible chance of winning! I also plan to enter this into every qualified film festival, screen it at conventions, including Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic Con, where I have consistently gotten free passes since 2014! Also, one hand washes the other, so if you support my endeavours, I will do what I can to support yours!

This is what I feel is the bare bones I could work with to make a decent visual experience! I feel like even this small amount of money could make a huge difference! This is my bare minimum goal, but I also feel that it's the most feasible!
