As was suggested before, how about a SW parody of the Three Stooges...the Three Sith Lords?
I just had the coolest idea ever. It's not a SW film, but what if we did a remake of the old Twilight Zone series where someone actually makes it to the end of the internet... We could shoot it in black-and-white, have lots of campy special effects, and find somebody who can do a good Rod Serling impression. That would be cool.

It'd be rather interesting to have a film that focused on three padawans competing to become the new sith apprentice. Perhaps their first task is to kill their own masters, and then they must meet up and fight each other until only one is left standing.
IA, i got a similar but funnier idea just a minute ago on the photo thread you put up, i guess it makes more sense to have it here...
the three jedi
a spoof on the three amigos. i've got two names down... instead of dusty bottoms, we could have dusty tunic, and instead of ned nederlander, ned nerfherder. we could spoof the whole movie or maybe do the black and white silent film treatment like their films in the movie.
this would of course be starring the dark jedi triplets.
ROTFL!!! I LOVE IT!!!
DUSTY: Where ever Liberty is threatened, you'll...
NED: Where ever Liberty is threatened, you will find THE THREE AMIGOS!
ROFL! I am sooooo there! How about NED PLETHERTABARDS...? Eh, a work in progress... I like the silent movie idea. Not a lot of sound to worry about and plenty of Desert!
USELESS FACT: "The Three Amigos" was actually filmed at Old Tucson Studios. The actual "silent movie" you see in the film has the famous mission church where a lot of the old John Wayne films were shot.
LOLOL!!! I just had this vision of Joel and Moe doing the "My Little Buttercup" number in their full-out Sith gear. hee hee hee!!

I love the idea about the cliff-hanger, serial type films. That was, after all, where it all started.
hey, count me in on acting, prop making, dramatic death scenes, whatever,
just no singing
Hey, I'm up for singing...as long as you can put up with my voice.
Since there seems to be a general enthusiasm for making a fan film I thought I'ld drop this link into the mix. I'm sure many of you have already seen it or have your own handbooks on filmmaking but this was made with Star Wars in mind and helps put things in perspective. This is mostly for those unfamiliar to the wonderful and exciting world of the independent film. There are sublinks for costumes, props, writing, etc.

Fan Film? Woo-hoo! I'll help out any way that I can.
Ok we need to figure out, who will rite the epic. Then we need to get the equipment, including the postproduction stuff. We need someone to do music and sound. We need someone for props and costumes. A director and finaly actors.
I know alot of us would love to be in the movie, but seeing that we have limited time, we can only use a few people.
I would love to do whatever is needed. And if i can have a cameo that would be great.
Great Idea For the Film.
It could be Monty Python like. But insted of calling it "The search for the Holy Grail."
We call it some thing like, The Search for the Force"
And like in MP movie whetre you had the squires following Knioghts around and doing all the soud efects we can do the same thing, exept with the Jedi.
Or we can do a Soap, "As the Force Turns". "All My Jedi".
Anyway, I am realy stoked about this. We should have a meeting, with those that want to be involved.
EDIT: Oh thought of another thing. What if we make it like a Springer talk show. We can have Vader admitting that Luke and leiya are his Kids. We can even edit some springer in there. Just a thought.
I thought we were writing the script for the PFF fan film over in the pillow fight thread?
Shhh, QuiGon!! That was a secret. Now we have to give everyone screenplay credit!
I starr=ted wirking on one or two short scripts. They should be ready in about a week or so. Anyone, that would like to doctor these and would like to brain storm? I'd like to get together and get the ball rolling on this.
I love that Jerry Springer idea, a bit of Austin Powers 2 were Dr Evil and his son are on the show. Love that idea.
yeah like a comlink made out of a womens razor.
We cant use the pillow fight now for a script because now I would have to get naked.
relax, we've got digital editing these days
honestly funny you mention talking about a fan film. my friends and i are currently in the middle of writing a script. it is not going to be a 5 min film however. it could be anywhere between 30-70 minutes. we have discussed some ideas for scenes. one includes a huge battle scene. with that in mind we would need everyone to be involved as extras and maybe a few of you as some supporting actors and actresses. we will need a crew as well. when we have the script completed i will bring it to a meeting.
I will do anything to be in a fan film I have a Jedi robe and have lightsaber skills. I would love to even be an extra or something.
maulsrevengeB80: If you can bring a completed script to the next FanForce meeting (in July) that would be great. Just be aware that different people have ideas and that your script would be one of many ideas to be voted upon for an actual FanForce fan-film.
