|A (handsome) boy's love for a popular movie saga reaches unhealthy levels as the third episode's release draws closer. He begins to see...things...Star Wars things...!|
This series of shorts aired one chapter a week 3 weeks before episode III hits theatres on our high school's weekly TV show. Week.
Consider this our homage to the great Star Wars, and hope you all have a great time seeing it on Thursday.

Well done man.

You have a knack of making incredibly funny spoofs and this is no exception.
Although i realise you probably knocked this up relatively quickly, you really ought to try your hand at a proper spoof with some serious production values. Your techniques are certainly more than adequate and the plots and characters are always hilarious - all your films need to be truely brilliant, is higher quality production. I would pay good money to see this very movie re-done with a bigger budget.

okay... effects... sucked. Lol. The sabers were all off on the rotoing, but i assume at least some of that is intentional.
Other than that, pretty funny.

actually no, the sabers that were in here was the me working at my hardest. but they were my first, and not my last (more like my second to last.) I blame my noobery with sabers and time constraints, but...ehhhh!!!!

Waser... That was awesome!! I really enjoyed watching that -- it was an awesome spoof, plus it was done well at the same time. What did you do to make that long panning shot through the school to where it finally gets to you (right before you drop the phone)? 5 from me, keep em coming

Though I wish I could take credit for the cinematography of this film, I can not. It was shot by my friends Lennie Mahler and Chase Ames. The long pan shot at the beginning (and many shots in the first half of chapter III) were done with attachable wheels that we mounted on our tripod, which was lent to us by our film teacher (the scruffy black haired guy I run past in the hall)

Encapsulating both the epic and the hilarious, this spoof is in it's own ways a filmic masterpiece injected with Waser's no less than perfect comedy timing with the editing.
Great job Waser and all those involved. Most Impressive.

Pulling the 5 trigger on that one was easy. Nice job. I liked the smooth camera move through the hallway into the classroom. Was that three wheeled tripod you used? My other favorite shot, which reminded me of Blake Edwards, was the long shot from the car where we eventually catch up with the running guy.

Pretty funny with very good shots.
In the shot just as you come out of the school, was the plastic bag blowing around intentional, or was that just there? If it was intentional, I congratulate you. It was genius. I also liked seeing the tripod in the background during the obi wan/vader fight.

the only real problem I saw was the head rolling part. When ever that happens, they always have it rolling towards the camera, and then it stops right when it faces strait towards the camera.

This is the best movie I think I've ever seen in the fxhome Cinema, and I mean it.
Not only does it include the typical Waser humour, wich I think will win some sort of award one day, but it was great as an fan-film/spoof too you know, I noticed the transitions, it was the "starwars transitions". And the Camera movement, very starwarsy, very starwarsy indeed.
Music you put in well, and you are lucky to know people that are good actors, my friends never take anything serious.
Though the effects weren't that great, to me it doesn't matter, cause this was so funny I nearly wet myself.
The (handsome) Waser has done it again.
And you made me look even more forward to the movie tonight.
Can I say more now?
Yes, I love your work, and keep me updated. If it wasn't for Tarn, I whouldn't have watched this today.
Keep up the good work, cause I know you can.

I think it just might be me, maybe i take things too seriously, or just not my kinda comedy. But i was gettin all hyped about it, seeing the five stars, then well, i was dissapointed. It's like immature humour, which ive seen alot, so it didnt grab me there. some of the shots were pretty sweet, i have to admit, the dolly cam was a nice effect, you used that well. But i dont just not for me, sorry

i know what you mean, i downloaded it once, and it just ended as Waser ran out of the school, or somewhere around there, then i downloaded it again, and i saw the whole thing, im not sure if this is the problem you have, but if so, download it again, its worth it

One of the parts that made me laugh a lot was when the first duel between the random street people occured, when they kept sninning thier sabers lol

This was great, just the sort of comedy that fits well with these spoof films, nice work, Waser.
I agree with Aculag on the Plastic Bag, that was done perfectly if it was intentional, because it floated away just as he comes out the door, if unintentional, then very lucky.
5/5 from me

It was a lush 5/5 from me 3/5 for the movie/ comedy and 2/5 for the rolling down the street and you see matey running under the sabers that shot must have hundreds of takes.
The choreography was lacking slightly but who cares

Funny stuff indeed Waser. I was also wondering about the trash bag flying around near the door. The first time I watched it I passed it by but the second I thought it was intentional. Just like Aculag said that would be sweet if it was..same goes for me. (added to the humor)

Excellent film dude, glad to see that you got it finished before Ep. 3's release tomorrow. That's great that you were able to film in that school, always adds more the film. My say? I was actually impressed that you rotoscoped all those sabers at one time, must have been a pain in the @$$. Anyways, great film my friend, I expect to see more in the future.
BTW, funny actor you had there. Well done!

I really enjoyed this.
It's very rare for me to enjoy something with light sabers in. Yes Waser has managed to deliver something funny and refreshing. And parts of the cinematography and editing are very slick, and other puts could have been improved with the shot being tighter framed or a cut to a close up. But that is me really picking at it. Overall its excellent
especially the perfectly framed running shot. That's my favorite part of this film.
The lightsabers coulda been a lot better, and Star Wars just isn't my thing. Maybe some more effort should have gone into the fight at the end, and the tripod was nice to see.
I think you've been very lucky in producing this at the perfect time for a good reception. It's received a huge amount of top ratings.
Well done for pulling off something that in places - is exciting to watch! Which is more than can be said for plenty of the Star Wars fan-films here at fxhome.

That was a really good short film. A fun and well executed idea. It was (almost) never boring, and it was shot in some nice angles. Seemed to be a bit slow sometimes, but otherwise it's one of the best films I've seen around here. I gave it 5 stars. Or circles...

Post 40 of 63
funny you should say that we used allot of money/time. Our entire budget went towards getting a 30 dollar Vader mask. Other than that, we just used stuff we already had. As for time, we made this movie in two weeks (From filming to fxhome) because of a deadline I was faced with for school. Chapter III was actually shot and edited (sabers and all) in 3 days. This movie was really rushed, and I personally feel that it shows. hard. as for chromonator, we used it for my friend's hologram, and effects lab for the beam coming out of the phone.
oh and kgreene, your comment is actually the most rewarding one yet.

Funny as ever. You're stuff always gets a laugh out of me, but out of the movies you've posted on FXhome this is deffinately your best. I love the part where those two guys give eachother that goofy handshake out of nowhere.
By the way, do you use Window's Movie Maker to edit your films?

heheheh, the vader costume (or rather helmet with chest plate "attached") was purchased at Toys R Us for 30 dollars, which was a large portion of our 35 dollar budget. The rest was a single ski glove, and a bed sheet. You can actually see vader's jeans a couple times throughout the movie. pretty slick, no?

I would like to announce to everyone that a movie was shot in the same school we filmed chapter III in, and it came out today.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0451957/
I got a chance to watch this movie today, and it BLOOOOOOOWS. anyway, many of the opening shots seem to have been taken right out of It's Coming, and we all had a great laugh at it today. I think I may get some screencaps and have some comparisons. Anyway, if you are a fan of It's Coming, check out this movie, because....it will be fun?
