Asciimation Wars!

 

Contrary to popular belief we don't hate everything here at Bitter Balcony. We only hate bad movies, actors, etc. One thing we love in spite of itself is Star Wars. Sure the new trilogy sucked and George Lucas is not much of a director, BUT he did give birth to a series we grew up with and love.

There have been plenty of fan films in the past based on Star Wars, but I've never seen one quite like this. This one is done - through text. Yup, you read right. Text just like that which I've written here can make an old favorite fresh again.

Its called "Asciimation Wars" and has been in the works since July 1997. Its taken plenty time to get to where it is, but it's an enjoyable (low tech) revisit to the old classic and worth a watch.

In the FAQ section someone asked "Why (oh God, why)?" The response, "Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time."

Here are a few screenshots of the, er, "film" - in no particular order. Click HERE to see visit the site and see the animation - or - asciimation.

Then we have a fantastic short made in the same fashion as the above. This one is called "Die Jar Jar" and includes what Jar Jar's appearance should have been in the new trilogy. See it HERE.
