Pink Five Returns! – SWR #52

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Star Wars Report!

On this episode, your hosts Bethany and Riley are joined by one of the creative minds behind, and director of the Pink Five Saga, Trey Stokes!

We talk with him about the return of the Pink Five saga, the last Pink Five film currently in the making, and the kickstarter project you can support in order to help make it happen!

We talk to him about the inception of the Pink Five saga, how he started his creative work with Amy, (Stacey from Pink Five) and the creative differences between web series and full length movies.

We discussed the visual effects industry, and Trey’s involvement with the industry over the years.

We also asked him about life on his boat, the Firefly, where he lives on the Pacific, and how/why he ‘traded financial security for creative freedom’.

Trey hopes to attend both Star Wars Celebration 6 and Dragon* Con this year, hopefully we’ll see you there!

Why We’re Looking Forward to CVI

Well Star Wars Celebration has been growing on all of our minds as the date comes closer. Indeed, we’re now less than a week away from the grand opening and I find myself getting more and more excited.
CV was a fantastic experience but I never really put my finger down on what specifically make a Star Wars celebration so special.

So I asked the good folks on twitter, what are you looking forward to at CVI? There seems to be a common theme…

It can be too easy to  get caught up in a “MUST HAVE CVI STORE EXCLUSIVE, MUST GET THIS ITEM AUTOGRAPHED, MUST SEE THIS PANEL” type of mentality. However, if this becomes your main focus at CVI, you’ll miss the best part of a Star Wars Celebration. There are many great things about celebration, but the best time you’ll have, is hanging out with fellow Star Wars fans, and fellow friends.
