I saw the first part of this movie and I thought it was really good. And so is the second part, as well as Tarn's writing talent

Nice spotlight, as usual.

Haven't seen it yet, but it's just finished loading, so I'll watch it in a couple of minutes. Seems nice, though. Must be a Star Wars-fans wet dream to have 3 actors from the original cast in a fanfilm!
Edit: Well, it wasn't really the best fanfilm I've seen (Troops), and it was a bit annoying that the volume of the effects and music wasn't on the same level as the volume of the speech, but it was a pretty good short, especially the part with "SLY?! Sly?! Sly...?".

Awful film, very badly acted. Don't care how many 'names' they have, the whole thing smacks of amateurs, certainly someone there did not have a clue how to make a film!

Order of the Sith: Vengeance does not have as high quality CG as some fanfilms such as "Star Wars: Knightquest". There are some areas within the fanfilm which lack "acting flare". However, it is a FANfilm. Two years ago, even one year ago, this movie would have rated much higher; however, the ability of fans to create high quality movies has increased incredibly. Instead of using Windows moviemaker, we're using Adobe Premiere, and all of a sudden CG is becoming as common as lightsabers. However, even by today's standards, Order of the Sith is an excellent fanfilm. A fanfilm's quality should never be rated strictly on the quality of the compression, the eloquence of the acting, or the complexity of the computer generation. A fanfilm should be rated by the heart put into it., the effort it took on the part of the director, with his own ability and limited resources, to create his production. You can easily see that Marcus put an incredible amount of effort into Order of the Sith. Imagine the work it took to coordinate the movie; from scheduling the actors, to setting up his sets to shoot the film, to implementing the spec FX. And then, to top it all off, he directs every penny to charity. Order of the Sith may not be the high quality, big budget fanfilm you sometimes see today, but blast it, it's got alot of heart, and in my book; that makes it a fanfilm to remember.

For the people with MONEY!
It's tough being 14. The only income you get is allowance. (Or in my case making movies for peoples' special occasions!)

What a pity.
65 isn't extremely old.
This was his last film, right?

Hi - I believe it was his last film yes: I still have his performance for Downfall (which I am making now) on my hard drive - but I will have to contact his wife at some point to see if she is happy for me to still use it.
To CJ - thanks for the support!
Incidentally, we raised about £4000 for Save the Children with the film which we are well chuffed with.
We are going to try and do the same again with Downfall. We've got more Star support in the lovely shape of Jedi Master Lingerie Model Orli Shoshan, and the technical quality is leaps ahead - I managed to afford a nice Panasonic 3CCD cam, and spent £200 on 3 pots of chromakey paint. That still hurts......
