All post effects done with AlamDV (which rocks) but more of a reminder of the power of practical effects. It's the same duel
you've seen a million times, but this time its done with the lights turned out. . .

The blend of lighting and digital effects is practically seamless. I am particularly impressed by the reflections of the lightsabres in the background. This is easily the most interesting use of the lightsabre effect I've seen and a it's a great demonstration of "less is more."

I wish we could track down the makers of this film. They did an awesome job with the reflections. I'd love to see them make a whole film, they seem to have a LOT of talent.

This is an awesome looking video, but because of how flawless the reflections and the lighting looks, i'm not convinced that the lightsaber blade was one of the digital effects. I think that this may have just been a neon, or cold cathode light tube attached to the end of the base, although i could be wrong. http://www.buystarwarsstuff.com/shadow.shtml

No entiendo cómo hicieron el efecto del reflejo de la luz. Creo que eso es lo extraordinario de este trabajo. Sigan trabajando en el destello al chocar los sables. Saludos desde Chile, sudamérica.

I don't understand how you´ve done the effect of light reflection. I think that is the best thing of this movie. Keep working on the flash at the sable contact. Hello from Chile in southamerica.

Good luck to all the community.

This movie had great light effects on the people and with the reflection....the actors do know how to duel pretty well, they just weren't using much ''expression'' (just a tip for the future). Next time try harder on actually trying to kill each other...lol but good job anyways...

The lightsabers you used were probably already illuminated, right?

May The Force Be With You, stop resurrecting- rather pointlessly and arbitrarily- these movie threads. Please, man. These aren't even really noteworthy movies you're finding here to comment on, and they're from like 5-6 years ago-even the comments before your new ones are at least 3 years old!
