Luke’s Change: An Inside Job by Graham Putnam has to be one of the most well produced conspiracy satires I have had the pleasure of watching.
Putnam’s mockumentary is told through the eyes of an amateur investigative journalist within the Star Wars galaxy and offers an examination of some questionable events and circumstances that lead to the destruction of the Empire’s original Death Star. The mockumentary’s main focus is on the connections between the people who created and operated the Death Star and those who are responsible for destroying it.
Putnam has done an incredible job and has created a compelling and thought provoking, albeit satirical, look at the Star Wars universe that we have all come to know and love. The 7-minute long mockumentary is well worth watching.
According to Putnam, Luke’s Change: An Inside Job was inspired by the infamous 9/11 conspiracy video, Loose Change.
