Ashley Eckstein Releases Her Complete CVI Video Diary

Posted By Mike on September 18, 2012

Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and co-founder of Her Universe (Rebelscum's 2012 Licensee of the Year), has released her complete Celebration VI Video Diary according to the following press release...

Star Wars? Actress Ashley Eckstein Releases Complete Video Diary of Her Experiences at Star Wars Celebration VI Event

NEW YORK, NY - September 18th, 2012 - Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars?: The Clone Wars and founder of the popular female sci-fi merchandise line, Her Universe?, is giving fans an expanded and unprecedented look behind-the-scenes of her experiences at the largest Star Wars event in the world, Celebration VI, which took place last month in Orlando, FL. With a video camera following her everywhere for the four-day event, Eckstein gives fans a unique perspective, through her eyes, of this epic convention. With over 40 minutes of footage, Ashley's Video Diary debuts via Starwars.com today at http://www.starwars.com/watch/celebration_vi_ashley_video_diary.html

Snippets of Eckstein's video diary cam were posted online on the StarWars.com blog during Celebration VI last month. However, Eckstein decided to edit together one final video diary of the entire Star Wars event, utilizing over 20 minutes of material not seen earlier, to give fans who could not be at Celebration VI the experience of being there... and from a unique view.

"I've never been good at keeping a written diary and I wanted to capture the events and memories of Celebration VI for myself and the fans in a different way," said Eckstein. "With social media being the way it is today, a video diary seemed like the best way to cover CVI."

The video diary, directed by Jason Surrell, a screenwriter and Senior Show Writer for Walt Disney Imagineering and edited by Studio Say So, an Orlando-based video production company, is a collaborative effort with Eckstein. "I was absolutely thrilled when Ashley asked me to direct her video diary at Star Wars Celebration VI," said Surrell. "After directing Ashley and her fellow Clone Wars cast members in Behind the Force at Disney's Star Wars Weekends for so many years, I knew that there's a whole other world out there that people typically don't get to see. So I'm hoping that our series of video diaries will truly give Star Wars fans a peek behind the curtain at all the fascinating and truly funny things that happen when these people get together. I've never been happier to be a fly on the wall. We're going to take you onstage, backstage and everywhere in between."
