    Hey guys,
    Well the show is up! You can click the link below and download the episode, it's gonna be awesome! Also, I suggest members register on the SWAN forums to field the barrage (I'm being optimistic here) of threads, questions, and comments regarding our film. We can really groom a future audience if we play this right. So check it out, good work guys!!

    P.S. I have no data to support this but I think our film will be watched by one of the largest worldwide opening day audiences in sw fan film history. I would really like someone to see if I'm right or dead wrong, let me know!

    I found where the video will be in the episode. It's about 33 minutes into the audio version, so i suspect about the same place in the video version when it gets finished, and is just sort of mixed in with everyone else's videos with no real fan fare. It's kind of in the middle but I sort of thought it would stand out in the cast somehow more. Ho hum. Let's wait and see what feedback we get tho. It was still fun to do and Arnie and Marjorie are a great part of the Star Wars collecting society and I'm glad we did it! I don't know how many times the members of our group have cumulatively watched it, but it has to be in the triple digits by now. It was totally worth doing it just for that! I think once people watch it, it will stand out. Of course, if you happen to catch something flashing on the screen, like subliminal messages mixed in the video or something, they're nothing. Nothing to worry about at all!

    MWAH HAHA hahahahahahah HAAAH!

    Yeah, the video should be up in about 30 minutes or so. I think our next films will be awesome, and will get alot more attention than this one.

    The full video episode is about 516 megabytes and took me about half an hour to download.

    Here is the download URL if you don't use iTunes or it's not showing up for you.

    BTW, it's a great episode! Check it out if you can.

    PV's black and white pictures of TK-8049 even get face time. It's right when you walk down into the Sithsonian. That's sweet!

    Well I read some of the comments.Nobody said it sucked so thats good.Gregthewookie thought it was brilliant so we can put that little review on the front of the DVD release.Someone else thought the long intro to wal mart with the quick exit was good.Overall I think it was awesome and a good start to a long and fruitful film career.Now since Im appearing in pictures in peoples homes does that make me famous? Should I be holding out for a bigger contract? Just wondering.

    They like us, they really like us!!

    For those who want to know, here are quotes from the SWAN forum regarding our skit as of midnight on Wed. I'm sure there is more to come, but, wow, we're getting a great response. And, yes, my favorite is the one is the first one.

    "the Paducah Imperials' video, which was hands-down brilliant. So clever and so fun - they're wonderful to have put in so much hard work and good humor into their little submission. " - gregthewookie

    "i really loved ALL of the segments and laughed out loud a few times, especially at Chris & Crew's video" - darthkozy

    "A few favorite moments:
    - The great long shot in front of the Wal-Mart Supercenter, followed by the abrupt exit. " - Fran Moff Tarkenton

    "the (Paducah) Imperials segment was hilarious" - ryanlb

    "The Paducah Imperials' video was awesome (how did you pull all that off in the store?)." - Smash Das Robots

    "You all did a great job, but the Paducah Imperial piece had me rolling." - darth_fod

    "I loved..... the Vaders a scalper, really funny stuff!" - darthdaddy
    "waaaaay funny!" - darthdaddy

    "I thought your cinematography on that was great as well as the special effects on the "set for stun" moment. Great work! " - Darth Bounty

    "I loved your part of the show. I thought it was one of the most orginal "skits" there was...D.L....'Look sir! 'roids!'" - DarthLudicrous (we've officially been quoted!)

    "I liked the sketch so much, I showed it to my wife. Lots of fun. " - Brock

    "I loved the McChewie/Vader standoff." - GIR_3691
