    While I would absolutely LOVE that, I have to agree wholeheartedly with Entropy. However, there IS bound to be a way to put in some kind of effects of some sort, isnt there?

    Well, since it's a just fan film, we can use sounds/clips (if necessary) from the films.

    And Entropy's right about the 30 minutes.

    We could do long films (hey, me'd love it!) but only if we can all get together long enough to do it all..

    My understanding is that you can photoshop a lot of stuff in. But I would think that without specialized software, it would be difficult and/or time consuming. As Joe said, we could use stock footage and cut scenes from other movies, but I'm not sure about the legalities of that. Plus, the production value of stuff like that will probably be noticably different from the production value of what we are going to be able to do.

    I'm not trying to discourage anyone. I just want to point out that to do this right, will be a major undertaking.

    Exactly. But, why not strive for them most that our minds can create? Why only go half way there? There will always be the audience. As together we can accomplish great things, it just so happens that I'm talking about a fan film trilogy. That's all.

    Oscar the "Swamp Ewok?"

    Swamp Ewoks come from the planet of Endor where the musty jungle is a breeding ground for these sick and twisted creatures.

    They are known for their powers of using force push, flatulence which have been known to cause their target not to be able to breath. Do not forget that their teeth are as deadly as a Rancor's.....

    These beasts are horrid and all that know of Lod-reh's pet Swamp Ewok can tell you that they will eat anything.

    Swamp Ewoks? Are you talking about "Duloks"?

    I have been working on my Darth voice..... I think I have a deep enough voice that would make even James Earl Jones satisfied....

    OH!!! By the By(sorry I had to use that)!!!! I have been reading the changes for the DVD OT....
    Someone shoot George Lucas.....
    The things I have read should never come true. I suggest you all keep your OT Movie set, because the DVD may be depressing.... :(

    I agree, Mordtat. I only hope the rumor about the ending of ROTJ isnt true. I have a bad feeling about this.

    My point is that ROTJ HAS been changed. They all have.

    New Jabba in ANH - still fake looking, but better...

    New Emperor (& dialogue) in ESB...

    New Anakin in ROTJ.... (at the end) and more footage in the "galaxy-wide end sequence"...


    ...unless it's all a lie...

    Like the "Bigfoot" example above... I refuse to believe it until I see it... and even then it still might not have happened ;).

    I know I'll help if I can. Don't forget that Janine might be interested in helping costume. You could always ask. If you shoot it on minDV, I have an extra camera for anytime I am up there

    Still trying to finish up with "The Barrows Man"
    (for more info, see www.stagefrightz.com ) so it may still be awhile. Scheduling conflicts have made it difficult for Joe to finish up, though SOME of us (cough, cough :D ) have finished our parts.

    Me, a Jedi Master. I'm very flattered.
    I didn't think I had graduated to that stage yet. But I'd gladly take up the ways of a true warrior...with a yellow light saber!
