The fanfilm won first place in the 2006 Philippine Toys & Collectibles Fanfilm Competition, held at SM Megmall.
Synopsis: Set almost a decade after the events of "Revenge of the Sith", pocket resistance groups have sprouted throughout the galaxy. Only a small number of Jedi are still alive, a few of which are involved in various guerilla movements. Two of these Jedi are Oniron Kurrian (Oneal Rosero) and Shard Khali (JP Agcaoili), Chalactan Jedi who barely escaped the Jedi massacre only because they left the Order as the Clone Wars was starting. Oniron left the guerilla movement soon after, and went into hiding. After a few years of searching, Shard finds Oniron in the backwater planet of Pereia.
Behind the scenes: Conceptualization for the fanfilm started in the middle of 2004, as Adrian Arcega and Luna Cruz started throwing around ideas for a emotionally-driven fanfilm after a Kurosawa movie date. Luna has had prior experience in fanfilm-making as the writer and production manager for the Matrix spoof, "The Juan" (which won first place in the Culture Crash Convention fanfilm competition), and has directed other short films, as well as the "Dream Systems" music video of the Purplechickens.
After months of tossing around story ideas and refining key concepts, the story was finalized early 2005, and preproduction started. Luna had to attend to other commitments, so scriptwriting duties fell to friend Paul Catiang, with help from another friend Ryllah Berico, who has had filmmaking experience herself. Adrian gathered costume and prop materials and started working on the saber props on January. Actors Oneal Rosero and J.P. Agcaoili started saber rehearsals in March. A few weeks before shooting, Paul finally finished the bulk of the script.
"Twilight Jedi" was directed by Adrian Arcega, with screenplay by Paul Catiang, Ryllah Berico, Paraluman Cruz and Adrian Arcega.
