TIE Fighter - The '80s Anime-Style Short Film

This awesome TIE Fighter short film, done in the style of old '80s anime, takes the Empire's perspective of a large space battle focusing on three main TIE pilots. According to the animater Paul Johnson, this was animated by himself during 4 years' worth of weekends. It definitely has that classic anime style and those the missile contrails are fantastic. The sound effects were pulled right from the TIE Fighter game. The metal music is good and works, but a full score would also match this perfectly. Watch and be amazed. Man, I really miss this style of anime.

He also made this sweet movie poster and you can get a bigger version at his deviant art page.
