On Geektown Radio this week we bring you all the latest tv new and UK TV premiere info, plus an interview with Film Director Lee Kemp who is currently in the process of creating 'Padawan Rising: A Star Wars Short Film'.

Padawan Rising is a short film set in the Star Wars Universe. It tells the story of Kano, a young, powerful but arrogant and impetuous Jedi in training, sent on a mundane mission to a supposedly abandoned planet as a last-ditch attempt to learn a sense of responsibility. Her only companion is the re-configured Pit Droid R-KS1. Chafing against the constraints of an expeditionary mission to a long-abandoned planet she's thrilled by the sudden arrival of an invading force and the opportunity to test her powers against a real foe. She's wildly outnumbered and seriously outgunned, but she has enough self-belief to power a Star Destroyer and it seems this alien world holds secrets of its own.

The project is currently being funded via Kickstarter, and could do with your help. So listen to the show, watch the video, and if you like what you see and hear, head over to the 'Padawan Rising Kickstarter page' and make a pledge!
