Ok guys here it is. Just to give you guys a general idea. I'm looking/ planning to do a local fanfilm, but not your regular run-of-the-mill, home video fanfilm. I'm talking more in terms of a as close to professionally done as possible, with all the special effects (esp. the lightsaber, MAYBE even as far as doing blue screen shoots) with a good story and everything. The works basically. Being a film student personally, I guess you could say this is what I do (or rather will do in the future). I'm looking for this to be included in my portfolio that I'll (of course) be sending to Lucasfilms. So I guess it will be of some standard. I am also looking for it to be submitted to fanforce fanfilm sections and the likes. I am actually looking for people who are interested to go on this exciting advanture with me in multiple different capacities, from talents to writers to effects people. Basically a production cast and crew, small as it may be. Please do not get too excited about it yet, as this will definately take time, a lot of time. "I said patience" Also as this is sort of a extra circulum I doubt anyone of us, especially those of us who are working, can commit more than our spare time to it. Hence slowing down the process even more. Also as it is more or less an independent not to mention somewhat illegal (due to licensing issues) project, it'll be hard to secure funding and maybe even permission to shoot in certain locations. Hence it will be pretty much out of pocket finance. However, if we pull this off, I'm sure we will have loads of fun doing it and plus the pride and joy of being the first fanfilm to be submitted to fanfilm sites should rock too. Where I'm at right now is just the Genesis/ R&D stage of it all. I haven't even got a story arc going. I'm basically trying out to see if it can actually be done, with major emphasis on the effects, before moving on. This post should have been posted much later, but ever since I started talking to a few of you about my idea, it seems to have gained momentum on the forum. So what the hay. So, anyone interested in VOLUNTEERING for this tough, but exciting adventure? Espically people who are doing such stuff for a living. That would even be better, although I welcome any help I can get.
