    [b}The relation between Lucasfilm Ltd. and the Fansites[/b]

    On this show we will discuss a very delicate subject... How is the relation between LFL and the fansites?

    Are the fansites better than the Official Site & Hyperspace? With all the RotS images that leaked on fansites lately do you think Lucasfilm is doing the right thing by upholding the law on fansites instead of working with them for the better good of the fandom? What should be done from both sides? We want to know what you think.

    We will have many special guests to discuss those subjects, including T-Bone from StarWarz.com, Fatboy Roberts, Xoanon the webmaster of TheOneRing.net who will give us and insight on the relation with the LOTR franchise and the fansites. We also welcome any Lucasfilm officials who would like to give their opinion. Other guests/webmasters to be announced.

    You have comments? Send us an e-mail or your phone number (for us to call you) to studio@swendirect.com We want to hear your opinion, constructive criticism and ideas, not start a bitch session about LFL.

    For our secondary subject, if time permits, we will listen to a brand new kind of fan audio drama. Called Always in Motion, this audio adventure will make you decide the course of your actions. We will do a live test with the fans and talk to the producer and Star Wars Fanworks founder, Nathan Butler.

    The live broadcast begins this Sunday at 7PM Eastern

    Bring your friends and coffee... this show might be extra long.

    Interview with Shane Felux from Revelations

    On this show we will have the chance to talk with Shane Felux, the Director / actor of the ground breaking fan-film Star Wars : Revelations.

    Revelations takes place between Episodes 3 and 4 of the Star Wars Saga. Emperor Palpatine's power has spread throughout the galaxy. Darth Vader is a feared figure. The Jedi are hunted fugitives. Anyone suspected of harboring Jedi or having any information about them is taken into Imperial custody.

    Our heroine, Taryn Anwar, has broken way from Imperial control and is searching for an ancient Jedi artifact. Said to contain great power, it could be the key to destroying the Empire -- if she can locate it before Zhanna, the Emperor?s Hand, does. It?s a race between good and evil as the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.


    Send us your questions for Shane Felux to studio@swendirect.com or via the chatroom during the live broadcast.

    The live broadcast begins this Tuesday at 7PM Eastern

    Listen live to experience the true nature of our show.

    Note: The June 21th show will be about the Fan-Film Revelations itself with our reviews and fans comments. The June 14th show will be devoted to the interview with Shane Felux only.
