You know I found this thread through the most recent tab. Can’t wait to see this thread get to page 22 in 5 years
Always nice to see some oldbies stop by.
Whoa, blast from the past. Haven’t posted here in many moons.
Hello there, folks. It's been about a decade since my last serious engagement here... the fanfilms times have changed a lot, there is so much more out there nowadays. I think Youtube helped a lot with that. Remember when we had to download QT files from TFN to watch some fanfilms, ha ha? Yeah... those were the dark ages.
Has it been brought to this forum's attention that the actor of Calaval in A Question Of Faith sadly passed away due to cancer about 4-5 years ago?
Hey Kaat, welcome back!
Yeah, the fan film scene has changed dramatically, for better and worse. Worse mostly because it has basically moved entirely away from this forum. I do love the rise in quality since those days though - and the fact that it doesn't take ten hours to download the latest lightsaber duel in the woods, haha.
Oh man, I'm so sorry to hear that. I didn't know. A Question of Faith has always been one of my favorites. I remember them making a sequel, but I don't think it was ever completed.
My condolences to his friends and family.
@TCF-1138 Yeah, it's rather sad. I also only knew because I read it in Youtube comments, it's too sad all around. I would have much liked a sequel to that film, because I thought the tale of two brothers philosophizing about the nature of the Force was very intruiging.
The fanfilm scene is very exciting nowadays indeed! There's some serious production value behind most releases nowadays, and of course a much higher technical level. I vividly remember the days when it was exciting and a feeling of pioneering to come up with new vfx tricks and tutorials and whatnot. I was kinda successful with my tutorials back then, but I feel like semi-professional YT channels have long overtaken that level of teaching. People who do this sort of thing for a living are sharing their knowledge, so hobbyists like me feel pretty outdated compared to that, ha ha.
Also, I'm lowkey shocked to see the Lightsaber Effects Thread not pinned on top anymore. It used to be my feel-good-place sort of, if I craved some comfort, I would go and look at some pretty lightsabers, ha ha.
Yeah, I unpinned that at the start of my reign as Fan Films mod a few years back, as most info in it was very outdated and most links were dead. I had intended to make a new one, but never got around to it. I should probably do that.
