What do you do after you eat a lot of turkey on Thanksgiving? Sleep? Get ready to go shopping? Or make a Star Wars fan film? Well I chose the later.

We shot this footage in the summer when it was hot!! School started and I didn't have any time to put into editing the footage. Well this holiday I had a lot of free time. There is only so many times I can tell the folks how happy I am here to see them without getting kicked out of the house! So I put about fifteen hours into editing this two minute movie. That's right, fifteen hours! I think that most folks that haven't made a movie can't understand. To make something that looks even half way good, you have to spend hours in the editing room or in my case on the computer.

I wanted to make this film a bit different than my last Star Wars fan film, The Last Stand. The same idea but the story is different. I also wanted to have a firefight like you have never seen before. The blaster effects took a good six or seven hours to put in, and I know it ain't perfect, but you get the idea of what I wanted to show. I'm not completely happy with the music either, but is works for a two minute movie. I came close to making some techno track in Garageband, but it didn't feel right for a Star Wars fan film.

Special thanks to Heath, Lance, Larry, Randy and of course Jim who without his great prop making skills, I would be running around with a real bucket on my head.

You can't believe how fun it is to do this. And you can't believe how draining it is too! I love it, so look for more movies down the line. I hope you like it and of course comments are always welcomed if done in a friendly manner. Unless you have made a movie, you have no idea how hard it is to do this. Trust me, it has taking me seven years to be able to make a movie this good. Don't believe me, well go out there and make a movie and email me the link!
