Benjamin Eck‘s Jakku: First Wave (2016) short film stars Joseph Bearor, Aaron Goddard, and Tyler Wolfe. Jakku: First Wave‘s “Jakku: First Wave is a Star Wars fan film centered around three Imperial Stormtroopers right before the battle of Jakku.”

Well-executed, introspective moments in warfare films happen frequently. There was one such moment in Lone Survivor and there were multiple ones in The Thin Red Line and Saving Private Ryan. Jakku: First Wave is built entirely around such a moment. Jakku: First Wave is smartly not built around special effects. Jakku: First Wave is built around good dialogue, relate-able dialogue, Star Wars-centric dialogue.
