I've searched and searched for new GOOD SW fan films for 2017, but have only found one and it's not bad, but much room for improvement! Maybe many are in process? It's seems there's a lull in things right now. The only really goods ones were in 2015 and 2016!
This one is okay. The frame rate and filter effects are awesome! Not a big fan of the "woods" scenery. If anything, they could have used a more swampy Dagoba looking place with a lot more hanging old man's beard moss! At about 7:28 in the film you see a mossy old shack! BAD IDEA!! You totally lose the Starwars look and feel with this!! A different area altogether or edit out the shack, of course they chose to use it as part of the choreography. Should have use some sort of Starwars looking prop instead! The saber blade effects are okay (the flicker out part is cool), but in certain frames you can see the light-up tube of the FX saber! They should have spent much more time dialing this effect in! Someone should tell them about the M-Saber plugin for Final Cut Pro (I may do that)! A bit of a "soap opera" plot and script, but great mystery created regarding the relationship between the two characters. Great suspenseful "cliff-hanger" ending! Hoping they do a part 2 with a much better location, prop use, and effects!

GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

darthsquidious: I haven't had cake since I was 5, and interestingly I kept all my wisdom teeth. Correlation?

GK45: Supposedly they know how many times you've checked a tracking number and laugh at you.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
