    Just looking over the script I have noticed that we could do with a few more fx guys to help share out the shots. Anyone interested?

    it's a pity you couldn't let anyone actually read over the script ahead of time, not the way it's done professionally imo... [face_plain]

    I've got the script continuity supervisor checking over the shooting script at the moment. It will be available on the screen test day and I'll post it online soon.

    do u know what a screen test is?

    is when they show people the roughly finished movie in post-production to see wat people think.


    for some reason...i dont think you had a screen test...

    Good grief, folks, good natured sledging is one thing, but give the guy a break =).
    I was going to go along to the casting meet, but had RL commitments take over (Just got back from overseas after a World Tour with my wife, so there's a lot of catching up to do)
    I joined the forum because I thought I could join a community of like-minded individuals who wanted to promote the art of making Star Wars based Fanfilms. For those who have given me their thoughts and ideas on the Location thread I started, thanks a great deal, but when I see a local being hacked to death because he doesn't have the right WORDS, that just makes me shake my head and wonder if there is any value being here. If it turns out that Tenacious's project is all smoke and mirrors, which a number of folk seem to think it is, then it will fade away, and you can all laugh to your heart's content, but to have a guy given so much grief that he says "screw it" and gives up, would be a sad, sad thing, especially as, to my understanding, NOBODY on this Forum has completed a published Fanfilm here yet.

    So, please, offer advice and constructive criticism / assessment if you feel the need, but if you're just out to slap the guy down, either choose not to reply, or PM him.

    This is precisely my 4th post on this Board, but time of registration has nothing to do with what I'm talking about.

    Monkey, you're thinking of a "test screening" not a "screen test". A screen test is part of the casting process where you film the actors reading their lines too see how they look on screen.

    Anyway, I agree with Tarryn_Whiteheart. I know to us who've been around here a little while, what Tenacious_dee has been saying sounds a little unbelievable. But just because you don't think he's going to pull it off doesn't mean you should try to discourage him from trying to pull it off. If Tenacious does pull off everything he's talking about, then it will definately open up a whole lot of opurtunities for furtue WA FanFilms, as well as making a prett cool film to watch. So Tenacious, seriously, best of luck mate! I really do hope you pull this off, I look forward to watching it!

    Also, I know some of Tenacious's posts are probably to blame for the "FanFilm Wars". Stuff like having a casting on day on the same day as another FanFilm. Then the stunt post that had a sort of "MY FANFILM WILL HAVE THE COOLEST STUNTS! WHAT WILL YOURS HAVE? NONE! HA!" subtone to it when I read it. I'd hope that both of those weren't done that way on purpose, but even if they were, two wrongs don't make a frickin' right.

    Anyway, if you don't like what someone's doing with their fanfilm, just don't get envolved, don't bash it.

    I'm about a day or so from finishing my first fanflim ;)

    I tend to agree with Tarryn that a movie will fade away and die if it is a smoke a mirror production. How about a little encouragement instead, eh guys?

    I wasn't able to attend, but a friend of mine (that's superman's OTHER secret identity for the synical) was able to. I was talking to him about it the other day.

    (a fact I'm sure you're all AMAZED to learn about)

    ok Taryn, we were a bit harsh, but i mean c'mon! he had to expect at least some ribbing, and biting back like that will only always encourage more.
    if he makes the film or not, i still find his aproach and attitude very entertaining :)

    Hehe, don't get me wrong, I think that sledging and verbal dueling is a very important part of the creative process ;) and I fully expect it when I post my Film details when I'm moving into Production.... just as long as it doesn't move into the realms of "Attack", which only serves to destroy community ;)

    Nice pic, by the way ;).

    Tenacious_Dee, from what I have heard you've actually got a pretty cool script etc going. Ignore all the rubbish that's said on these boards... Request to get this thread closed down and start it again (without the de-railing present, of course) if you want. But don't be scared off, I'd be interested in knowing how all three (or are there more) fanfilms are going. Regular updates are always good. :)
