    Hey there...I posted this question on the Toronto board and I guess I should broden this out to those in Ontario. My question is simple..Why hasn't someone or group banded together here in Ontario and made a killer fan film that would even wow Lucas. We have the talent in front of and behind the cameras...we have the people that can costume..the reason why I am asking this is because I am in the middle of filming a Fanfilm now with local talent here in Souther Ontario. It isn't your typical Jedi mumbo-jumbo look what I can do with light saber effects...it has a great storyline (between Empire and Jedi)
    If anyone has any comments I'd love to hear them.

    Thats a cool idea! I've wanted to make one before, but didn't have the good video camera or the costumes or the volunteers. lol

    I have access to digital cameras and I have access to a friend that does editing and I am not bad with the costume and set designs...I just thought, wouldn't it be great to have..I don't know..instead of one token stormtrooper, call on anyone that has a costume to band together.
    I'm not saying throw all the cards in the air and see what happens but to have a great story write it...post it here...cast the people here...keep it open and call on anyone with resourses from this area..

    The equiptment wouldn't be a problem. I have some available at my finger-tips. The only problems would be with getting a script created and agreed upon, and people actually fulfilling their commitment to help out. It's a great idea, I'm working on something similar, but the hard part is getting the script done, after that, it's smoother sailing...(But don't quote me on that)...lol

    My production company as well of a few members are toying around the idea of a fanfilm during the summer. Many of us are very keen on it and we have already practice our saber effects. If you're wondering what can be done in 13 hours using Adobe Premiere and Photoshop, check out this saber test.

    Hi all!

    I just noticed this thread here, and wanted to share one thing.

    I have a huge fanfilm in the makings The script is almost at shooting stage. Its completed, but has yet to be polished.

    The team is in London Ontario, and the locale is pretty good for the things I want, and I have a great team.

    Each lightsaber is even being custom machined out of aluminum.

    When the site is up, I'll let you all know. We Canadians can make good Jedis...look at Hayden! lol!

    The following is the teaser. NOTE: The scene is from ANH, and teh saber is not whet the actual prop will be.

    When are the auditions being held?
    I'm 13, if that creates a problem, let me know. My dad says I look like I'm 17, and I can act the part of someone older than myself. When I was ten I played Lady Montague in the death scene. It was drama camp, so we only did one.

    I'm not modest. And trust me, if you put it in a movie, I've probably done it before. I'm not saying that you should cast me as the main character, there's probably a lot more qualified actresses out there.

    Just forget it, I'm not allowed on the internet anymore, so I won't be able to come. My mom says the internet is making my mental problems worse, but I know it's making them better. She won't believe me though.

    Bye now, probably forever. :_|

    My mom and I came to a compromise.

    So, are we actually going to do anything? Anytime soon?

    A compromise is an agreement, both sides getting a bit of what they want, but not all.

    If you still don't get it, I'll pull out my dictionary.
