Seizing the opportunity, the New Republic launches a desperate assault to liberate the galactic capital.

The X-Wing pilots of Wraith Squadron rush into the fray to add support....


Directed by Christopher Parks

Starring Keith Cherry and Christopher Parks as Wraith One and Two.


This is a passion project of about 4 years in the making. I was a big fan of the X-Wing PC games as a kid and also really enjoyed Michael Stackpole's X-Wing book series. I’ve always had an interest in those New Republic adventures which is chiefly why I decided to make this short. I hope you all like it!

The primary software and workflow consisted of an animation pipeline in Blender that would be exported and rendered in Houdini using the GPU renderer Redshift. Final compositing was finished in After Effects.

Apart from a few kitbash sets, all assets were modeled and textured (Substance Painter) from scratch since the making of the spaceships is part of the fun.


This short film is based off the X-Wing video game series and Michael Stackpole's X-Wing novel The Krytos Trap.


Check out Arya Moghaddam’s fan film “Star Wars: Destroyer” to see Keith Cherry as Wraith One again! I also wrote and did the VFX for that short.
