    Hey everyone,
    This Saturday (the 14th) we're going to do some test shoots on the Orange Coast College campus for the fan film I'm working on called 'Fall of the Jedi.' The story revolves around Boba Fett (what a shock!) and his hunt for two Jedi on Coruscant. Timeline places the movie after Episode 3, but before Episode 4 (ANH) during the Jedis' last struggle.
    The test shoots will not be a gigantic production. Basically it'll be me in my old (and really non-accurate and always falling apart) Fett costume with the person I'm making this film with (camera man/digital post-production in Premiere/Sound Editor). The test shoots will be mainly for the following (which I'll add in later through CG):
    - Laser Bolt Effects
    - Lightsaber Effects
    - Explosions
    - CG backgrounds like Coruscant
    - Sound Tests
    - Light & movement matching with CG vehicles, effects, & backdrops
    - Different shot and angle tests

    Overall we'll be testing the boundaries of what we can do so I can fine tune the script accordingly. Anyone is welcome to come and help out, we'll have plenty to do. We do, however, need someone to come in a Jedi Costume. If you have a lightsaber with a blade, that'd be great. If not, I'll bring one. We'll need at least one Jedi to battle against me for the test shoots.

    The place is Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa at 3:30pm. We'll meet at the big art center (3 story building) down Merrimac Way (Parking Lot D). Map bellow shows the location.

    If you'd like to come, please post a reply and let me know!

    hi britt; got a lot of stuff to do on saturday otherwise i would love to come. i have a spare jedi knight costume you can borrow. its my padawans [he was so big a star at imax that he wants an anakin one now]
    the size is a large. if you want to see how nice it looks go to any of pics of the imax at universal city walk, he is the only padawan there. he's in almost every picture.
    let me know if you want to use it. let me know a little more in advance and i will be glad to lend a hand, or lightsaber.

    Hey Don,
    That'd be great!! As for a saber, do you have a nice looking on with a blade (preferably detachable for belt clipped shots)? The blade is essential so I can track it later on for the glow and blaster bolt deflections. I was just going to bring one of those $9.99 sabers that full retracted into the saber, but if you've got something better then that'd be great!

    hi britt;

    nope, my saber is a prop only item. i do however have several sabers with retractable blades. the most likely one is the one used by mace windu in EP1. you might ask to borrow shauns...he has a parks saber [dont we all wish we had one] with a removable el blade. i will PM you my home phone...call me if you want to borrow the costume and/or lightsaber.

    To entise you all, here's an almost done page from the storyboards.... (dialogue is not final)

    Maybe you can find that costume you are looking for and we can have an Anakin looking one there as well....That would be cool...to have variety....Then Britt could pick what he liked best...

    Okay, so... SRB can go the 28th. Zhi Don, can you make that? Would the same time (3:30pm) be okay? If that seems okay, I'll contact my other crew member and ask him (he's the cameraman)

    Anyone know how I can get in touch with those Boba Fetts who were at the IMAX event?

    I posted a message in our TTT thread about possibly seeing TTT at a 12pm showing on Saturday and then coming over to see your test shoots. If anyone in here is interested or wants to set it up for another time (hopefully same day), please post in the TTT thread.

    Thanks.
