Remember that stormtrooper extra who clumsily bumped his helmet against a retracting door in the Death Star during Star Wars: A New Hope, forever tarnishing the fearsome reputation of the white-armored soldiers of the Imperial regime? Of course you do!

Now filmmaker and Star Wars superfan Jamie Stangroom is seeking out the man who played that notorious stormtrooper in a new documentary titled The Empire Strikes Door. Stangroom has ventured into this mystery before in a short film, with no definitive conclusion, but now he's doubled his effort and started a crowd-funded campaign to develop a longer film devoted to this embarrassing topic.

His Indiegogo campaign asks for a mere $13K to complete this noble quest to de-mask the man who committed one of the most famous bloopers in Star Wars history. Check out the pitch video below and tell us if you're game to help Stangroom solve this puzzling question.
