    Hey Provo, Jedi_Cougar here, new to Fan Force....

    Just wondering how big the group is here of "serious" fans. If you guys could post a few messages bringing me up to speed, plus the next meeting dates, what exactly you do, etc...that'd be great.

    Thanks

    Greetings Jedi_Cougar!

    Welcome to the Provo Fanforce forum! We have a webpage for this group at http://www.starwarsutah.com.

    Our next meeting will be in the next week. I will be posting details about the meeting either later today or tomorrow.

    There are several BYU students who already attend our meetings. Only one of them has a vehicle right now. Do you by chance have your own car?

    Let's give Jedi_Cougar a big welcome!

    Rise and shout
    The cougars are out...

    Fellow BYU student here; welcome to the madness. Hope to see you at activities. Are you a Utahn or a transplant? I'm from Boston, but I spend my fandom energy at Provo Fanforce, the best chapter on earth.

    I'm not from Provo but I'm in the Salt Lake area. At least the Provo chapter has people that come and do things. You'll enjoy it, I did. :D

    Welcome Jedi_cougar. Its good to have another fellow BYU person here. I'm one of the others from BYU. (And I'm the one with the car :cool:) I'm from Utah - near Ogden.

    I think you'll have a lot of fun with us. Hopefully we'll see you soon, huh?

    EDIT: By the way - where are you living?

    Hey.

    I live at Helaman Halls on Campus. Too bad there aren't a ton of cars.

    I am 1 of 3 kids in my family here at school. My older siblings use the car we have, and I can use it for myself, but my Dad won't let me drive other people around. So most of the time I should be able to provide my own transportation but that is all. Sorry, wish I could help though.

    I'm originally from Maryland just outside of Washington DC.

    The group sounds like fun. I look forward to doing some cool stuff with you guys.

    Hey are you guys BYU fans? Well I hope you guys are cheering for the Cougars. They've got probably one of if not the best team in the nation. I hope you guys crack the BCS this year.

    DarthIshtar...Yeah, I'm in Budge, 96th ward too.

    How odd. Room 1217, find me in the directory if you want...

    I hope #8 BYU keeps winning. If they do well against Utah I think they might get into a good bowl.

    I take PS100(Turley), Eng 200H(Beeson), TMA 102(Jensen), TMA 110, Rel 121(Young) and American Heritage(Latimer) this semester.

    Anyway, its a small world, hmmm.

    So you're in Film huh? Me too and so is Spoo. Not your section though. What are you majoring in?

    I'm in DT by the way.

    Yeah, I'm majoring in Media Arts probably. I am a pre-major right now but think I will go ahead with it as my major. It encompasses a lot of my interests.

    I'm doing some stuff in the Media Arts lab and have out how to do the glow for lightsabers in Premiere and Photoshop and I can do it so I figure I'll make a fanfilm sometime.

    I was encouraged by the fact that the www.starwarsutah.com site had pictures of like 5-6 stormtroopers in the valley! Hehe. Not bad looking costumes either...those things are expensive though I believe.

    Well anyway, fun.

    Ok. Laters.

    Hey that's awesome. I'm majoring in computer animation, but we are ALL interested in making fan films. If you want you can check out my website for my movie below. And then there is always HandyMan's movie at www.tombofthejedi.com. Its a very large-scale movie.

    Spoo - I think we need to re-invent our idea for us doing a fanfilm. We even have an extra guy now. (hopefully)

    Oh and by the way - basically all of those costumes you saw in the pics are owned by HandyMan. He's the man!! :D

    The name is Ryan. Ryan Farnes.

    Yeah, I'm in those classes. Well hey, we'll have to meet up sometime. I get a kick looking at starwarsutah.com each time. There are actually fans here.

    I am quite encouraged by the fact that people in this forum are already experienced in making fan films. I'm just starting but hey, every person helps right?

    Anyway, it'll be fun to meet people at the next meeting. Later folks.

    Ok, this is funny. I know you Adam. We're in the same group for our TMA 102 project on sound and music. Hehe...scary almost.

    I got to thinking..."I probably know what most people in my book of mormon class look like, so I'll see if I recognize anyone in the pictures online" so I went to another message on the provo board and checked out the pictures you posted for the DVD release (I believe) and saw you in them so I recognize you.

    Well...thats settled

    Well I'm glad you guys know each other already. That's cool.
