It is a time of summer vacation. Tom "Servo" Harrison, a die hard Star Wars nerd, and his friends, decide to start work on a Star Wars fanfilm. Whether the film will be the highlight of their career or the breaking of their friendship remains to be seen. Parodying "Star Wars", "High Fidelity", "Jaws", "Fight Club", and "The Matrix", "The Formula" remains one of the most professional fanfilms on the web. Written by
The first trailer released to promote the film was a separately scripted short film with no footage or relation to the actual feature, outside of using the same actors and general characters. In reality, the trailer was made as the cast and crew had never worked together and wanted to make sure they were capable of producing an entertaining film. The trailer was edited, released, and earning positive reactions before any work on the feature was started. See more »

Created by the geniuses at Digital Llama Productions, "The Formula" is a fanfilm about people making a fanfilm. A simple concept, with a brilliant execution. With hilarious dialog and great in-jokes from the fanfilms community, above-par acting for an amatuer flick, and well-developed characters, this film is a worthy addition to any filmmakers hard drive.
