    Here's something that we shot in January of 2011 but barely released yesterday! I hope you enjoy, 'A Brief Saber Duel III!"

    Wow! Really well shot and the effects are great too. The combatants have a lot of enthusiasm and speed going into it so it seems like the choreo's well rehearsed.

    On the choreo itself, though, a number of times they were aiming for each other's blades. There wasn't an element of danger to it because a lot of the hits weren't aimed at the others. Also, move your feet a bit more - when the guy in black was Force pushed back, he fell, whereas if he stayed more mobile he would have been able to move backwards with it and he wouldn't have ended up on the ground. Overall it helps to keep the energy up in the choreography.

    Still, really well shot, keep up the good work when you go forward to Brief Saber Duel IV!

    Very nice! Like the choreography. Love the camerawork! What camera did you shoot on? My main critique would have to be about the shutter speed. It seemed pretty fast since the sabers had no blur on them between frames, even on the fastest swings. Other than that, loved it!

    Great film! It did not feel brief to me, I got really into it! Good job man, good to see you back in action. Thanks for the entertainment.

    I agree....very nice location, camera work definitely stands out (nice close ups at appropriate times).....FX look great....maybe blades slightly not streaking enough...but other than that fantastic.
