    Wow ok so that was pretty cool. I was about to get some sleep when I saw this post, but ended up watching it all the way through. That's really amazing quality. I'm looking forward to part two!

    That was actually a pretty amazing piece of film! I started watching it, thinking I'd just get a feel for what it was like, but, like askywalker98, ended up sitting through the whole thing. I was very impressed by the production quality, as well as the visual effects. The slight lens flare from the lightsaber in the scene where the Jedi is playing with the boy is glorious, and many other subtle details like that bring life to the film. I also sensed a very Firefly feel to the movie, particularly in the 'underdog' theme, as well as the bleak atmosphere of a mirthless, oppressed society. I look forward to the parts to come! Good luck with it all!

    Above +1, I started this at 2:20 in the morning, ended up watching it all. Very good work. The storyline is well done, finally brought back the story of an unlikely hero fighting against almost insurmountable odds, the prequels trashed that. The narrations told what needed to be told without being cheesy and needless, and unlike a lot of fanfilms the acting didn't feel forced and thin. >ADeviantMuse, I'm glad I wasn't the only one getting the Firefly vibe from this, but it fits wonderfully.

    To hear the Firefly comparison .........wow.... I loved that show and we tried hard to create good characters and story in addition to good special effects.
    As I'm sure you know fan films are usually lacking in that area. Although this film don't look it, we actually made it on a very small budget with lots of help from really talented people. There will be one more part released (unless fans want more) in a few months. I will keep you posted.

    Try viewing from this link on Vimeo. I was able to watch it on my Droid from here but not from our site. Something due to the embedding I guess.

    Ha ha glad to see I'm not the only one kept awake. Keep up the fantastic quality! If there's a chance of a 1080p version anytime, that would be awesome, I would be all over that!

    If you do this good with jedi, I wanna see you do a fanfilm with Boba. BTW Anyway I can get a version that I can put on my iphone? ( I don't mean through the internet, but like a video file)
