    Hi folks. I'm working on a remake of my Machinima film "Final Redemption" and I'm doing it as an animation.

    (for those that didn't see my welcome thread, "Final redemption" was a fan film I made in the star wars galaxies game based on fan fiction I have been writing for years....no one takes game films seriously though which is why I am remaking it as an animation)

    Anyway, I know there are a few folks here who do lightsaber training around here, and I really need to get a few people to volunteer to coreograph and be filmed doing some saber fights, so I can use the video as a guide for my animations.

    The storyline does involve female jedi characters in the primary roles, so it would be cool to have a few women help out (just some ways the body moves us guys can't do) but all in all I can still use guys fighting it out as a guide. (it's technically 3 female and 1 male who use lightsabers in the storyline :) )

    If you want to see a sample of what I am doing I have a teaser up on YouTube right now. It is basically just some of the test footage I have done for this so far to make sure I can pull it off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KILI6Mip6yU

    Cheers

    That sounds really interesting. I will bring it up at the next saber class. This is the kind of thing we were waiting for. :)

    That sounds really interesting, I'd love to help out. I don't have any lightsaber training but I do have some experience making movies.

    Does that film experience by chance include adding special effects? because I am going to need some help there with the space battles. I can get the models working and moving but adding engine effects and blaster effects is something I may need help with :)

    No sorry, I'm trying to get into that though. I've got more experience with live action film, directing, editing, screenwriting.

    I don't have nearly as much experience swinging a lightsaber as the senior members but I'll be willing to help you out with what I know.

    For tonight only (will probably be up until 2am) I have a sneak peek of the first chapter to this animated fan flick. It's low quality but you are free to download and take a peek

    ((keep in mind I am new at this animation thing so try not to rip it apart too bad))
