    Hey I think that pot luck idea is great, though I dont think Tara or I will be there this time :(. We are going on a little trip to sunny Florida. But anyways, I was wondering if maybe you guys and gals might be interested in doing a Fan Flick. It doesn't have to be huge...but I think it would be a fun project to think about along with Alpha Con and such. Please let me know what you think and maybe some ideas you might have. See yas soon !!!

I just also happen to know some guys with plenty of software and a digital video camera. I believe there is great interest in this. Right gang?

    Oh ya! Now that we have one Stormtrooper, one on the way (go Mark), and maybe more. It could be awesome. Definitely interest here. Have fun on your trip.

    I have a degree in Broadcasting which means I can edit... hint hint. I know several people in Television and if I beg, they may let us use the edit bays. (I worked at a TV station for 4 years) I have to do some checking though. Later Dawmer

    Well there seems to be plenty of interest, and we have some great connections. Now all we need is a story! Lets start brainstorming and see what we can put together!

    We now have a seperate website for our fan film. www.beggarscanyon.com

    Bob has converted his site to be our offical fan film website. We'll post all our fan film news and info there.

    Thanks Bob!

    Hey we are back :) And there is no rest for the weary. I get right back into the groove of work heheh. It looks like I will be doing an Airshow this weekend in Kansas at Forbes Field. I am glad to hear the positive responses. The web-site is great!!! Much kudos. As for what the fil will be about....I think we should throw out all kinds of ideas. Any idea at this point is a good one. Do we want it to be comical...or serious. A lot of action ...or drama...or a mix of it all. I think making a small project like this would bring us all together and be loads of fun. Each member can add their own special touch :) If we need to coordinate some fight scenes I take martial arts so I can help there. We have some Troopers so that is good, and maybe we can get some props for lightsabers and such. I am also working on getting a degree in computer animation, so as the project moves along I will be able to help more. In any case I am rambling because I am excited. This will be loads of fun...let the brainstorming begin!

    I think a good action movie with a decent story would be the best. We have people with martial arts experience, people with costumes, and people with prop skills. (me included):)

    The Jedi thing has been greatly used, but that is because they are some of the coolest characters in the SW saga. They have the greatest special effects and have the coolest moves.

    We've seen the 2 brothers thing and the 2 sith aprentice thing so we need to come up with something else if that's the path we're going to go down.

    Otherwise we have stormtroopers, etc. which really don't have much dialogue in the movies.

    All in all I think a Jedi story would be a good one to do. Location is a big thing. What do we have around Omaha that isn't a corn field or the city?

    I think that you need to include these new members in the circle to what direction we are going with the Fan Film, Mister CR PC.

    Let's just say that we will be able to use the martial arts talent...but this isn't the type of FanFilm that you may be thinking of... ;-)

    PS -- Is our secret courier service still working? I haven't gotten an update in almost a week.

    Maybe a story envolving bounty hunters might provide some interesting material to create a story.

    But that's just my 2 cents worth
