New Short Film with Lightwave effects! http://www.empyreus.net to download it.

It is a Star Wars Fan film; a parody about a Starwars Nerd. Made mainly by four college kids. One of them being myself. It was made almost solely using Newtek Products. We used the Toaster to edit. Aura for our compositing and Lightwave for our 3D effects.

We originally made the film to be entered in www.Atomfilm.com's Star Wars Fan film contest. But now we're hosting it on our own.

Comments or critiques most welcome. Here, if thats ok with Newtek. Or we also have a forum on our website. People are welcome to discuss the movie there as well.

There were some download problems earlier. We should have those resolved for anyone that may have run into them.

GREAT!!
Really funny.
Loved Duke running through the forest and the bit trying to use the lightsabre.

The effects looked spot on.

Well done

Thanks Gui Lo. Glad you enjoyed it. That part of the movie was probably one of the funnest to film. We gave basic directions to our actor (Sam Wessels) and just turned him loose. :)

:) I think the effects and camera work, were top notch! The fighting looked excellent, and the ship model looked real. Great job.

Nice work.

Did you use a Glide cam or Steady cam to make the seen where Duke was running through the forest?

How long before there will be a sequel? :cool:

Hi,

A very cute short... nice work. :)

I did wish for two things though...
1. Duke dragging the dead or wounded jedi into the ship. After all, jedi's never leave anyone behind. :eek:
2. Duke landing the ship in the courtyard where the love interest and friend are and telling them where he's going, then gathering up the courage to kiss his love interest before leaving. :rolleyes:

... and ya, make a sequel.
