Original Stormtrooper

I worked with the lovely guys at Milltag to create a super-duper low budget Star Wars cycling film, used to promote their new range of jerseys. To say that I was excited to play with one of the most iconic objects in cinema history is an understatement. I scripted, and directed the film.

In 1976, industrial designer Andrew Ainsworth was asked to create costumes for a new sci-fi movie filming at Elstree Studios. Andrew’s Original Stormtrooper has now become a genuine cultural icon across the world, which inspired the Milltag Jersey designs. We worked with the Andrew to craft a costume that could be cycled in.
