About My Role

As a web developer working on After the Sequels, I had the unique opportunity to merge my passion for cutting-edge technology with my love for the iconic Star Wars universe. My role was integral to the online presence and user experience of the film, as I developed a visually appealing website that captivated our target audience. I utilized my coding expertise in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create a responsive, accessible, and immersive platform, highlighting the film’s content, behind-the-scenes footage, and character profiles. Additionally, I collaborated closely with the film’s creative team and executive producer, ensuring the website’s design and functionality were in sync with the overall vision of the project. The experience of working on this fan film allowed me to push the boundaries of web development, creating a digital space that truly embodied the essence of Star Wars and fostered a sense of community among its ardent fans.

Why This Project

My love for Star Wars is deeply intertwined with cherished memories of my dad. Growing up, our shared enthusiasm for this epic space saga served as a cornerstone for our connection. I vividly recall the countless hours we spent together, watching the original trilogy, discussing the intricate plotlines, and debating the motivations of the iconic characters. The excitement of each new release, whether it was a prequel or a sequel, offered us another opportunity to bond and create lasting memories. Star Wars not only introduced me to a universe rich with imagination but also provided a means to deepen my relationship with my dad. Every time I watch these films, it transports me back to those moments we shared, filled with laughter, excitement, and the unwavering love between a parent and child. The galaxy far, far away holds a special place in my heart as it reminds me of the indelible bond that Star Wars helped forge with my dad.
