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.

[Tom asks the group to help him make a fanfilm]

Our burning bush. You know, like Charlton Heston in the Ten Commandments? My man Tom has had an epiphany. A vision. A task to take us from our mundane lives and give us something more productive to do.

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.
