    Why the end of March in particular? Doesn't give you a whole lot of time. Heck, even the Lightsaber Choreography contest gives you until May, and you don't even need costumes for that.

    Well... it's tricky but not impossible. Have you some idea what you want to do? Is is just a fight scene, do you want a plot, are you feeling inspired by a particualr fan film or scene from something other than Star Wars, etc? You have any particular skills to add to the mix? Producing? Directing?

    I'm not being mean or anything on purpose, it's just from experience it takes a little more than just getting random people together for a weekend. Not that that's not fun in it's own way...

    you know, no offense but its not meant to be a professional film LOL if we all just get togeter and film on the weekend thats great.
    Its for the Fanfilm awards we have every year and its never meant to be serious but fun. LAst years film that one was pretty corny and well, cheesey but they all looked like they had fun and that what mattered :)

    I was thinking more of a parody.

    At any rate, if anyone is serious aboiut getting together please post in here what dates you are available and we can plan the film accordingly :)

    Are you serious??
    Do you have any idea what you are filming, script and all?
    Cool
    There is a custom Mando in your area we are in contact with on another board.
    I'll see if he can help revive the SCJ with you.

    we have been working on the script since we started the first film. There was alot we didnt get done on the first film we ran out of time to do we are adding in for special featuress on the DVD ;)

    I have found some interesting "props" for the second one recently. The script is pretty much done... we will have more days of shooting but the first wave is the 18th.
    I am spending the weekend before working on set stuff and costuming etc.

    The website should be up and running by then too for updates.

    as far as SCJ I dont know if we can revive it or not, the filiming doesnt affect that.... filming will still continue regardless of a fanforce chapter in the area.
    It would be great if you can send the mando our way.... even if there is life on the forum I wont have to close it. Right now its just too quiet. ;)
