Is there any video availible about this awesome stuff?
Cool cant wait for the trailer!
Wow! Another cool picture!
Nice! I love the Riddick style saber hilts.
wow...i hadnt even noticed the ridick sabres until you emtioned novall...but just wow guys and gals...you are doing a great job
sweet man...this is looking great...i like what ive seen so far on your charecter aswell...he seems to transition from robe wearing jedi...to battle hardened warrior jedi...it looks really cool man
Man I hope this rocks as hard as the pictures do!
and yes he does indeed have a bit of a transision through out the yrs of his life, my charactor had a life changing exspiriance (not gonna tell you what it was of course, lol) in his past, the end result is what you see in the latest pics, more of a "hard core" type of jedi, he doesnt take no mess from anybody.
holy cow...ypu could scare the cr*p out of a rancor with anger issues...this looks awsome....you have quite and array of sabres dont ya...the nromal sabre when your in robes...the "riddick" sabres and now a double as well...thats one tooled up jedi...well done!
we have see some of the "good" ones...there will be a evil character, an alien one I mean?
you have work a lot, this pictures are great...hopes we have a trailer soon!!!!
holy cow i NEED to see that trailer...this is probably the most hotly anticipated fan film of the year (scratch that..EVER) for me...you guys nd gals are doing a great job oh and renko...that last pic is incradibly hardcore!
What does the back of your arm say?
that's what I mean...thanks!
do you have a web site of the movie?
keep updating, your work is awesone!!!
This has to be the best fan film ever made.
Marauder Cyborg helmet WIP
This is crazy good.
Interesting, kinda has a Transformer look to it too among others. But taht was the one that stuck out to me the most.
I like it! Loooks great!
Very cool progress. You guys peaked my interest enough to go out and rent the Seven Samurai on DVD. Very cool movie, I look forward to seeing your work.
the cyborg is looking good man!!!!!
I can't wait to see this! You guys should put it onto DVD!
Wow, that looks so much like a Gundam!
The props and characters look great! I'm really looking forward to this.
As a bullwhip enthusiast, I especially can't wait to see the work done in that area. Looking forward to it. 8)
Wow, you guys did a great job on that helmet. Really gives a new source for some custom characters around here.
Can't wait for the trailer! This really gives me some hope for my own projects.
Heres a couple of on the location pics for all of you.
Nice Pix!!!! This day was a lot of fun!!!
what!!!!! that looks amazing...it looks liek your about to throw him lol (if so i BET that hurt)...fair play the costumes and props for this are amazing...keep up the good work guys...all of ya!
Marauders, transform and roll out.
My brothers and sisters of this thread. The stuff on here is sooo Snifftacular & amazing! Keep it up!
another pic to share with all of you., the far left kid is my boy!
Thats cool ! Nice to see the family is getting involved too. Hate the teasing with the pics , but that will have to do for now
OUTSTANDING! I'm enjoying tremendously what you've done so far! I too applaud at using actual Martial Artists as Jedi. Bravo! Great job on props, outfits, locations, love the pic comparisons!
Having just finished being in a Aliens/USCM fan film, there is SUCH a tremendous amount of hard work involved. From pre-production, to the actual production, and then the almost tedious task of post-production, hat's off to you!
Looking forward as eagerly as everyone else to seeing more!!
as you all know this is a "low" budget movie....this is a terrible understatement, yes it is a low buget movie but believe me, I have watched some of the scenes filmed and if I was not personaly involved with this project I would have not even guessed this was a low buget picture, the look and feel was/is most def a high dollar Lucas Star wars movie.......now am I saying this just because I'm personaly involved with this in front and behind the camera? perhaps I am, put my gut feeling is that most of you who will be watching this movie will agree with me once your done viewing it..............at least I hope you will.
the movie is about 35 to possibly 50% done now, we are editing it as we film it so it will not be long after the movie filming wraps up that it will be ready for your viewing pleasure.

This looks awesome! This is going to be THE best fan film ever! It's great to see you getting your kids involved with this too, the next generation of fans!
that poster looks great!
that looks amazing!
well done guys and gals!
All the designs came out so perfect. Each Jedi look like official Star Wars characters. So far I been saving each Jedi pic since they look so great and perfect inspiration for my 1/6 figure kitbashing hobby. Cant wait for more pic updates and the fan film, its gonna rock. Awesome job so far!
anyway we can a bigger pic of the Seven Jedi poster? I want to use the pic for my desktop

I just wanted to comment on how great a job you have done using the layering on the costuming. Theres always a lack of texture and layers by most people creating custom designs. When watching the movies, its the depth of the layers that add the realism.
This movie looks like you have put a lot of work into it and im sure it will reflect that.
Im going to make one quick comment. Its something that always bothered me about starwars, and I notice it in a couple of pics here and in all fan films.
Often, when people grab a lightsaber prop, they grab it with their hands low on the hilt because theres no 'blade tip' but when they have a prob with a blade on it, they grab it near the top.
This shows up when ben shows luke the lightsaber for the first time.
His hand is awkwardly low on the hilt. Though the lightsaber blade has 'no weight' it works as a gyro (at least the books say).
I notice here and there, that because its a picture with a hilt and no prop blade, the actor, in order to 'feel realism' is holding the saber with a lot of hilt above their hands, to add the feeling of weight.
I (personal opinion and im sure theres many think its important to emphasize hand positioning as a constant while shooting.
Anyway, looks awesome, id love to see a link to the website. And if you dont have an experienced web person, thats what I do for a living, at the corporate level.
I also own www.starwarsuniverse.com and its been sitting dormant for 3 years with a 6 year old design on it, just waiting for something to do with it. Maybe a 'fan film site' would be just that thing.
Hmm. Now thats an idea
This all looks great can not wait to see it when your done keep up the great work and keep up with the awsome pics.
Is it weird I counted them to make sure there where 7 Jedi in the picture?
I love the costume design, especially Sa-Jen and the jedi with the green robe. everything looks like something out of a real Star Wars movie. wasn't there supposed to be a trailer back around Christmas? LOL I already know I'm gonna love it when it comes out
out of interest do you know if you will be selling all the props and costumes when the films done?
Couple of quick hitters for you.
I posted a new mockup of www.starwarsuniverse.com temporarily with most of the art in place. The design is about 80% there.
I took your 7 jedi picture and tweaked it a bit. I used a softening technique to give it that big picture look. I then cleaned up the faces to make them more prominent.
Its featured top the page, but I have no where to link them to. If you want to hook up and give me more info on your film ill make you a break out page for it.
If you want me to jus leave it as is, say the word
Id at least like to drive some traffic to your site if you have one.
Like I said some of the art isnt perfect yet, ve been just creating it as I go. Once I refine it it will be a lot tighter.
None of the links are enabled on the pages except the link to starwas.com and TDH (here).
Let me know if thers more I can do for you and your project.
those costumes and pics are looking awsome! Keep up the good work! Can't wait for the movie!
renko how did you make your saber hilts?

Aloha Kakou, sweet movie, can't wait to catch a glimps of it. Just wanted to ask, where do you guys tend to film, outer island or Oahu? Nice to finally see Star Wars enthusiasts from the islands!
Oh man! What great use of skeleton masks! You guys are looking awesome.

sorry my megapixels are low and the quality is not seen in high rez
That's good stuff.
more updates production photos
Even da keikis(kids) are getting in on da fun!
Looks great as always.
Just one comment.
You should probably paint the lightsaber stand in blades with 10 or so rows or alternating color, with a specific color on the end. It makes it a TUN easier to roto, because you can tell the angle of the blade, and where it ends during high speed shots.
I think its usually the blade color, and white, with a bright orange tip. So that you dont 'mix them up'
Helps a tun with the rotoscoping.
On a side note, your a hell of a painter man. Do you work somewhere doing paint?
Waaa who wea... speachless... Impressive. Most Impressive.. cheers !
The rough-ness of it all reminds me of firefly a bit. And a jib, w00t! How long is it?
