The Rocketeer

The Rocketeer

From the very beginning, Star Wars has always been a source of inspiration for fans to create their own films, like Hardware Wars (Ernie Fosselius, 1978), TROOPS (Kevin Rubio, 1997), George Lucas in Love (Joe Nussbaum, 1999) and of course the new Dutch fan film Remnants of the Order (Kees van Hattum, 2017) that can be seen at Echo Base Charity Con.

Filmmaker Richard Raaphorst, now known worldwide from his cult hit Frankenstein’s Army (2013), created a short film in 2012 called The Rocketeer about Marc, a Star Wars collector on an obsessive quest to obtain the ultimate collector’s item: the rocket firing Boba Fett.

The Rocketeer was premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and will be screened at Echo Base Charity Con with an exclusive appearance by director Richard Raaphorst, who will be available after the screening to answer questions from the audience.
