A beautifully-executed DIY Star Wars video called Jedi with a GoPro from low-budget VFX master Bill Parker imagines the battle a lone Jedi warrior might face while purging the remnants of the Empire in a post-Return of the Jedi galaxy far, far away.

Parker's coy video description, "A Jedi takes his new GoPro out for a spin," doesn't reveal anything about the video other than the creator's sense of humor—more subtle than German VFX artist Frank Wunderlich's Leaked Star Wars Episode VII Filmset Footage. But looking at his short VFX experiments (Highway Nyan Cat, and Dinnerstellar are both choice), and his subtle work on films like Nebraska (2013) and shows like Silicon Valley, it's clear we can expect a lot more from Parker. Keep an eye out for the Millennium Falcon and other references to The Force Awakens in the three-minute film below:
