|This is just a short 11 minute film that we made for our literature class. It is a Star Wars/Julius Caesar movie that holds the Caesar story, but the Star Wars setting. We ended up getting 175/100 on it considering our teacher had never seen anything like it before. It was also shown to all the English, literature, and foreign language classes in our High School... not to mention my video production class aswell. In the end, we were all happy with it. It isn't a 'major' project like "Brotherhood of the Cold Steel", but it was very creative and a new thing for us since it was our first time rotoscoping. Hope you Enjoy!|Posted: Tue, 14th Jun 2005, 5:58pm

Not a bad film at all. I really enjoyed it.
As far as the lightsabre fighting goes, I have one suggestion. Fight like you're actually trying to hit the person. Don't actually hit them, but don't be afraid that you will. Your moves seem somewhat hesitant. But it still looked good, so I applaud you for that. Nice job.

There were some good lightsaber action but you have to be more original. Dont copy anything between B.C. and 2000!

There were two things I noticed...
Brutus seemed a bit evil in some points, and he in Shakespeare's actual play was the hesitant one to kill Caesar. For instance, when he suggests using a "Republic weapon, a lightsaber," he suggests in a tone that isn't exactly that of a brother, which he considered himself to be to Caesar.
The music was excellent, and for your first time rotoscoping, the sabers looked fantastic! I particularly liked the camera movements panning to see a saber, it made it seem more "there."
Finally, I'd have to say the idea of tying the Star Wars universe to the Roman Republic was in-freaking-genius. Holy crap. I want to do a movie like that now. Wow. Amazing. Good gravy, that was a good idea.

We tended to lean brutus a little towards the 'dark side', but that was for fun reasons. anyways, thanks for the sincere reply!

I don't have much time to write, so expect a re-edit of my post, but I wanted do say I really enjoy your movies, and this is no exception. I think I like it because the writing seems to be well thought out, verbose, and at times makes you really think in a historical context...with all your submissions. I'm hoping you'll expand your stories to other important US or European historical events in future submissions.
I'd like to take the time to make suggestions and definitely positive comments, but I wanted to let you know that its always a joy to watch your videos. I can tell how much you and your team enjoy making the films.
PS ~ I'm not too fond rotoscoping
, so I have full appreciation of your work. Nothing like a few days/weeks of frame-by-frame editing with masking to make you a humble man.
