    Honestly, if i see another Lightsaber fight where two guys stand there waiting for each other I will go crazy. Geez, what's the point in doing a fight scene whereone guy has to wait for his opponent to catch up to him. And why doesn't anyone aim for their opponent?? What is the point in aiming three feet in front of them, pausing a couple of seconds, and then have your blades clash. It's pointless and straight away you have lost your viewers attention. Lightsabers KILL. Make it look that way or else your film will not be as good as it could be. I bring to your attention "The Deul" and "Chapter 7 The final Training"(or something like that). Both had great idea's but the saber scenes were stupid. In these films the saber fighting was like after every swing they would say, "oh did i hit you? sorry" "oh that was a close one our blades nearly touched". it was boring and after a 20 something meg download i was a little disgruntled. Ah well who am i to complain, my film will probably never make it past post production.

    Hopefully "Battle For the Zone" will fit the bill for you. Check out my martial arts/saber philosophy at http://artisticwhispers.homestead.com/files/bftz.html http://artisticwhispers.homestead.com/files/bftz.html

    I don't know if you guys have checked out our short "PA WARS" yet, but if not, you should. Even though we try for a few laughs during the fight, I defy anyone to say that it doesn't look like we're trying to slice the crap out of each other. Check it out, I bet you'll dig it. Also, if you like "PA WARS", just wait for "Duel of the Fakes". You've never seen hard-core saber-fighting like what we've got coming soon! We look forward to your comments.

    I loved the part in Duel when the sith called his lightsaber, but the Jedi dude smacked it away with his lightsaber.

    That kicked arse.

    Smashalot - It's called stage fighting. Watch TPM and the Trilogy again. Same thing there. You know what happens usually when two guys with a single sword fight without a shield? They both die...rather quickly too.

    How do I know? I do medival fighting with the SCA.

    Oh, god...

    Let's not talk about the SCA.

    It's a little early in the Millenium for that.

    A main reason there are so many lightsaber duels in fan films is because there was at least one lightsaber duel in every movie! Most fans like to make their films at least have something to do with the movies, and every Star Wars movie to date (no, the two Ewoks TV movies and the Holiday Special DO NOT COUNT) has had a lightsaber battle at the climax of the film. It seems appropriate to pay homage to this great tradition.

    Now i won't pretened to be an authority on sword fighting but i do know a little, i do realise that the fights were staged and choreographed but still, they've got to be fast and look "real". That was what was really cool about the saber test those two guys did, it looked really good. But the final movie was a bit of a let down after this. didn't mean to upset anyone, thats just my opinon. and what is that SCA thing? i guess it is a sword fighting club but what does it involve?

    SCA=Society for Creative Anachronism. It's a renaissance-type society. People get together at camps, drink, carouse, party, listen to balladeers, and engage in sword competition (fencing done with foils, broadswords done with padded PVC swords).

    If you're interested in learning sword arts for jedi purposes, check out the sword forms of the Samurai, Wushu, Tae Kwon Do, and Shaolin Kung Fu. These are a few of the arts that were melded together to form the Jedi Arts, which - though still young in its development - aims to be a sort of Jeet Kun Do of sword arts (also deserving of study is the use of the Claymore).
