Created by Blood Brother Cinema Co., this Star Wars fan film titled Rebel Scum follows the struggle of crashed a snowspeeder pilot stuck on the Empire-controlled side of Hoth. Behind the scenes video and photos here.

Rebel Scum was filmed over a period of 2 months at the Columbia Icefields in Alberta Canada on the Athabasca Glacier. Due the nature of the hostile environment a custom thermal rig was built to keep the cameras from freezing in -30C/-22F.

Nearly all visual effects have been achieved without the use of CGI using time-honored methods such a stop-motion animation.
