star wars - revelations

All this week the BBC News website is speaking to people whose creativity has been transformed in the digital age. From blogging to podcasting, millions of ordinary people are becoming writers, journalists, broadcasters and film-makers thanks to increasingly affordable and accessible tools.

The latest Star Wars film has been downloaded more than three million times in the last few months and the film-makers are delighted. But this is not Revenge of the Sith being pirated - it is a so-called fan film called Star Wars: Revelations. Revelations is a 40-minute long film made by Star Wars fans for fans and it is breaking ground due to the professional polish that has been brought to the production. "We wanted to produce a high-calibre film," explains director Shane Felux, who lives in Virginia, in the US.
