If you wanna go for a starwars feel, invest in some cheap cloaks for your jedi. Also, again with the starwars feel, have that dramatic starwars music playing in the background, and have the text kinda fade in from black and stuff.

That's just what i think though.

I don't think star wars music would fit in well with that though.

I'm trying to create the impression of the Title being destroyed by falling, being blasted, and exploding twisted .

But thanx for the ideas.

Maybe at the end, the whole thing could blow into pieces at the screen.

Who in the world gives this a -1! Are you guys going crazy? There was nothing offending in that post just some constructive critisism! I think there is a reson why you see the button on every post that says ratingfaq! Someone should try reading it!

I swear I didnt do it (and I can prove it), but maybe its because it has no relevance to what he asked.

This clip doesn't look at all like a Star Wars movie, and there aren't any jedi!

There is no relevance.

Let's see...

I see two 'people' with swords of colored lights, blocking other colored lights flying at them, and then engaging in a sword battle using the sabers... sounds like jedi to me.

You really are naive, aren't you Brettsta?

I thought it was supposed to be a Star Wars film.

Silly me, its so hard to consider that it might be when there are people with lightsabers fighting. That must be the dumbest guess ever, since there was no info in his post or in the movie to say otherwise.

If you want my advice, here it is:

Don't put your mom in your movie.

Case closed.

I don't ever remember STAR WARS dropping ONTO A PLANET from the sky and exploding!

Is he having halucinations?

Alright, I'll take my -1 off Marek, but the title has nothing to do with Star Wars.

It looks nice, but I'd make the background and the text a bit less bland, mix some color and texture into it or something like that.

Ok, I updated the link at the top with Brettsta's idea of having the text explode at the end smile .

Here's the link again:
