Have you ever watched one of those home-made Star Wars fan films? I haven't until today.
And damn their good! I wish I could figure out how to make lightsaber blades and sounds and all that crap on the computer. You'd see me and Rex duking it out on camera a ton!
Some particularly good ones are the lightsaber duels, which falls under the FX Projects at TheForce.net. Here are a few good ones I've watched.
Two of the FX artists that hang out on the Forums of TheForce.net duking it out with lightsabers. It's intense! One-handed saber combat, rolling on the ground, fighting dirty, and all that stuff!
An alternate Episode II duel. One of those "What If?" Star Wars films. It's pretty cool as well. It's a spectacular two-on-one fight, and they even managed to make Force lightning!
Maru is also pretty good. I only watched it once or twice (and that was awhile ago), but I know it's awesome. It is about the training of a Padawan named Maru, who must make a choice between the Light-Side or the Dark-Side when his Master is killed by a Dark Jedi.
The Art of the Saber is spectacular. Two brothers duke it out on the battlefield. Two sabers and double-edged lightsaber action, as well as some nifty and awesome looking lightsaber spins. Watch for them! A nice score by Hans Zimmer...well, his music from other movies, Black Hawk Down and Gladiator. The letter from the beginning is from a Civil War letter, which I thought was pretty cool.
I'll list more if anyone wants them! I just thought they were interesting, but you might not. They might take awhile to load.
