I've been meaning to post this for years but am only now getting around to it. This was done fairly quickly for a few hundred bucks. I shot the battle sequence in my garage using miniatures mixed with scale models and did the FX in iMovie. The repair bay set was also done in my garage in Seattle modified from a previous set used for another short. The actress in it, Monica, was awesome and we're talking about a sequel. Bring on the big budget and effects!
