    The statuettes are already taken care of ... and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. ;)

    We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on the graphics and such. We WILL be making some kind of an announcement within the next couple of weeks .... stay tuned.

    As for nominations ... the FIRST round will pretty much encompass the majority of the SW FanFilms produced to date - from as early as TROOPS to as recent as SEEDS of DARKNESS. After that, as I mentioned earlier, the "Awards" will occur either once or twice a year - depending on participation and the number of FanFilm releases. Voting will be inclusive of all registered members who participate in the voting - not just the opinions of a select few. This way, the winners are selected in a democratic manner. :)

    We have all of the award categories that most of you would expect to include in something like this.
    In addition we also have a couple of "special" categories and awards ... you will see.

    I really think you guys are going to like the awards we have designed. And for those filmmakers whose films win,
    you will be able to post the award image on your respective websites if you wish.



    I do think, however, that it is important to note that in the REAL world of FanFilmmaking, there are no "winners" or "non-winners." Rather, everyone who puts forth the effort to create something, and see it through to it's completion is always a WINNER. :D




    And guys, our website is going to involve A LOT more than just the awards part, and you will be pleased to see several familiar names participating in the project. I don't want to give too much away too soon.

    Perhaps we could put together a kind of Teaser Trailer for the website. ;)


    More to come.

    Dude .... BELIEVE ME, most the awards are taken care of and I truly think you will be pleased.


    However, your "Golden Jedi" idea is not a bad one, and perhaps I will elicit the help of my 3D artists to design
    something .... perhaps for a specialty award or something. Good idea. :D

    Would it be possible to see what the award is going to look like?

    Ummm ... well, if I showed you, I'd have to KILL you.


    We actually want to keep the award statuettes under wraps for now ... to unveil them along with the website itself. ;) Suffice to say that the statuettes will be worthy of the splendor and grandeur of Star Wars, and the quaility
    of the FanFilms that salute it. :D


    As I mentioned earlier, I am trying to elicit help to put together a little Teaser Trailer of sorts
    for the website . . . . maybe to give everyone a little glimpse of aome of what they can expect.

    If you need some help, I can definitely help you put together a trailer with whatever you need. Anything else I can help with. I'm a big fan of award shows and stuff so this is right up my alley.

    Chad: So far, on the one I was talking about, it looks like we may do just a quick unofficial thing on here for now, so as to wait for TAC's to have the greater impact first without anyone comparing when they really shouldn't be.

    So, presuming there's time, we may do it sometime in a week or two. Otherwise, we may delay it, but still have the awards show up individually on the SWT-G from the SWT-G crew only.

    Were you planning on making a ceremony thing with like the presenters and stuff maybe sending in their stuff on video, like saying the nominee and winner and stuff? With the winners recording an acceptance speech? That'd be tight.

    actually, they are planning on driving to your house with a big check and ballons on a sunday. it'll be live on TV during a football game. and then...
    oh wait...
    nevermind.

    but it would be cool to see some video rather than have just a plain website.

    Well, the thing is .... we DO NOT want to overstep TFN/THEATER as the FIRST and FOREMOST source for finding and watching Star Wars FanFilms. (Not to mention FanFilmFX). :D

    These two sites are where people should go to actually download and WATCH the films.
    OUR website will be place where people come to get some (trying not to give too much away here) pre-information with regard to the films (especially the newer ones), as well view and take part in our "FanFilm Academy Awards" type section.


    The bottom line premise is that our site is to be a sister site (or sorts) to TFN/THEATER and FanFilmFX . . .
    not another place to watch hosted films.

    Besides, we are currently working within a limited bandwidth constraint ....
    Although I am looking for other economical possibilities to allow us an increased bandwidth and such.

    how about catagory for best editing and director of photography?
    i don't see them standing anywere in this forum. (can be just me :D )
    editing is so much underrated :D just like they sayed at the oscars this year.
    (for those who doesn't know i am planning of becoming a editor, heading for the film academy in Amsterdam in about 3 years time)
    hope this catagories will be edit :)
