    From TFN:

    AtomFilms has teamed up with Lucasfilm and SCI FI Channel to put together a one-hour TV special about Star Wars spoofs created by fans and independent filmmakers. It premieres on Sunday night.

    Why should you watch?


    a) The show is hosted by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, etc), and he's a funny guy

    b) George Lucas makes a special appearance

    c) The films are good

    d) Star Wars Episode II comes out this week and you need to start using the Force

    e) It's only an hour and what else are you doing on Sunday night?

    f) SCI Fi is basic cable so it's not like you'll have to pay


    Anyway, here is the info you need:

    I wasn't happy either. They didn't show the Fan Films in thier entirety, and they only showed the winners. I guess we just have to go to Atom Films and download the others ourselves. I enjoyed watching the E! Premier of Episode II from the Graumans Chinese Theatre though (just ended a little while ago).

    I was really hoping "Your Lightsaber and You" would win something. My friend and I have been calling each other Jedi Master Flash and P-Darth ever since we saw it! What a great little flick. What on earth was GL smoking when he picked Xmas Tauntauns????

    I don't know why he picked Christmas Tauntauns either. Did anyone tape the show? I'd still like to get a copy of it as Kevin Smith was pretty funny as usual and they had some footage from the Celebration in Indianapolis on the show as well.

    I didnt' watch the show, but I saw the fan film awards at C2. In the film, George said he picked Christmas Tauntauns because it used technology to tell a heartwarming story or something like that. He said it was the one that was mostly in the spirit of Star Wars.

    maybe someone should bring a tape of it to the next meeting, and we can skip through the ones weve already seen....
