This fan-made Star Wars animated short film, “TIE Fighter,” allows fans to experience a battle with the Rebel Alliance from the Empire’s point of view.

Drawn and animated by Paul Johnson, the video is an homage to a 1994 video game, also called TIE Fighter, and took four years’ worth of weekends to make, according to Kotaku. Turns out trading in orchestral scores for electric guitar-laden rock music completely changes the mood.
