    Well I am making a small fan film (small as in not much publicity) and I need some costumes (and maybe some people to wear them) for some shots. I live in Cornville (I'm hoping you know where that is) and i'm talking about maybe some jedi masks (as in Plo Koon, Ki-Adi Mundi and Aayla Secura), jedi robes and tunics and some stormtroopers for my Order 66 scenes. I just want maybe 2 days with you guys down here and I was hoping you could do this for me. If you don't want to drive all the way down here, maybe I could hitch a ride with my dad sometime (on one of his routine trips) and maybe pick up the costumes, take them home, film the shots needed, make a trip back and drop them off somewhere. I am in real need of these costumes and I would greatly appreaciate you lending them to me an no charge or for a very low price. SO PLEASE! I am begging of you to please let me use them. I and my family and my friends are very responsible people and we will be very gentle with the costumes. Thanks!

    I can not speak for us as a group on something like this.. it would have to be what each individual was willing to do.. how far into the movie are you.. how long is it to be... how many people involved.. I have a coupld of cloaks.. no masks at all.. and no imperial costumes either. Have you contacted the 501rst or the rebel legion.. they might have what you need.. I would be very interested in driving down on a filming day to see what you are doing.. curiousity guides my wish for seeing what you have put together.

    This is going to be a movie for fun and for entertainment. I want to make this film as a "test" to see if people like me and my friends movies. If they do indeed like my movie, I will maybe make 1 or 2 more. Keep in mind that this is going to be a movie that will bring in no profit WHATSOEVER. Also you might want to take in the fact that I am only a teenager and this is just an idea that me, my friends and my parents just thought up one day and that it would be fun to do. So, you might not want to spend 2 whole tanks of gas just to see a couple of teenagers making a for fun movie. But I would appreaciate you letting us use your jedi robes and such. If you do want to let us use them, then maybe you could send us them in the mail or something. Also this my first time making a Star Wars fan film but I do have alot of expierience in making films. So thank you for your consideration. Keep posting so we can further talk about this.

    where is it that you live again.. give it to me geographically.. I think I would rather come if I can.. If I knew what all you were planning.. I might be able to help.. I understand what you are saying.. no profit.. none of that matters.. I just have an interest.. not to mention.. if it goes well.. I would be interested in being more involved in the next one..who knows.. you could be the next george lucas o_O

    or not... either way it sounds like fun.

    I live about 230 miles from Tucson near Sedona (i'm sure you know where that is)in a town made up of rich rancers and subdivisions called Cornville. I do need help but not from tons and tons of people. I do want this movie to be awsome as well. I am talking about maybe a 45 minute film that has a kinda long lightsaber fight in the end. Any more questions?

    okay.. I mapped it from my house to your school on purple sage.. it is about 3.5 hours away from me. when are you wanting to do this film.. and on what days... just so I can figure out if I can do this or not. and if anyone is interested in joining me.. unless of course it is on a day I have to work or be out of town..

    Well I talked to my mom about this and she doesn't really feel comfortable with people hanging around with me and my friends that she doesn't know. But I was wondering if maybe I could still borrow the costumes and such. Maybe my mom could talk to you and could figure something out. Nothing against you it's just a mom being protective of her son and his friends.

    why don't you have your mom call me.. I am a mom as well.. with a ten yr old and a nine yr old.. and I would love to see how this process goes.. and how well it works.. I don't so much mind loaning out costumes.. but I do mind at the same time.. and I am very curious.. your mom is more than welcome to get online and talk to me.. or call me.. I welcome that and encourage it as well.

    Brino, costumes cost alot of money especially if the person has made them. I've spent upwards towards 50 hours of time on some of my costumes and there is NO WAY I'd lend them out to some stranger.

    Here's a suggestion - get to know a few people and attend a meeting or two before you ask people to lend out something that they have worked hard for. Some people have spent upwards towards $1K on their armor and on material for costumes.

    And your mother is more than welcome to join the forums and discuss this with our Chapter Representative or any of the members.

    Howdy, I'm Patricia (Brino's mom) and I would just like to say thank you for all the help you have volunteered to do. But I think it would be fine if I just made the costumes (just the robes) with the help of some of Brino's friend's mothers. I appreaciate your volunteering to do this but I think I can do it on my own. Thank you!

    With all due respect,
    Patrica
