congratulations. even though i would like to have a subtitled one, i am safe to say that this trailer is of the best on fxhome. I admire the post-production work in this movie and also that is of a very high quality. I like the overall look and feel that especially the composited shots are very artistic and inspirational to see.

I will look forward to see this movies progress.
keep up the good work, I see the potential to become one of the best star wars fanfilms ever.

Beautiful greenscreen work, amazing. Apparently you guys have much talent. With the special effects being good as they are, I hope that you will not repeat George Lucas' flaws. I.e. letting the fx be a focus of the film, and in doing so leaving a crappy story line and characters. (phatom menace)

I will remain optimistic though, and will expect a great story, plot and character deveploment from you in the future.

The visual effects look great so far. I especially liked the shaky camera movement during the light saber battles - it really adds to the realism.

I can't wait the final movie.

(PS - With the final, it would be much appreciated if you could include English subtitles)

That was ok. Kind of boring for a trailer, but the film looks promising with beautiful sets, locations, and nice CGI and composite work.

That was some insane cg, what did you use, I had a joy-gasm when I saw that. but your saber battle looked kinda slow, not like speed wise but maybe think of changing between scenes more often to make it look faster paced (but your movie is probly moslty done). but it was cool

I thought that trailer was great! Though I think it got kind of slow when it started showing the sabre fight, but other than that, I enjoyed it a lot. I'm looking forward to seeing this.

I thought the trailer didn't follow any real "trailer formula" if you can tell what I mean by that. It just didn't overall have a good flow. The beginning was good, and all the CG and camera movement with the CG looks great but the framing of live action shots seems to be a little off. Still, amazing production values there, so 4/5.

Hot spit this was amazing...if I could understand what they were saying it would be even better but still you have talent. I would love to see some of your own work..something not a fan film.

Quick question, you said this was made in Italy, was that a Mayan pyramid in that valley?

This is a CG composing, the place is a valley near the frontier between Italy and French.

Wow...The sets and 3D work was REALLY good for this. The "Look" of it seems like HDV or high definition something. Compositing is..Perfect. Lighting looks incredible as well.

The end Lightsaber stab scene kinda ruined the trailer for me though.

Hi everybody!

I'm Yuri Abietti and I work with Angelo Licata, writer and director of Dark Resurrection. Seems like you liked the trailer a bit too much! wink Since the server suffered from too much traffic because of the thousands of downloads of this movie in the last few days, they told me the server has been temporarily closed. We're sorry if the movie won't be available at the moment, if you encounter difficulties, let us know. We hope to find mirrors as soon as possible, and if you can host the trailer for free download, let me know at:

yuri[dot]abietti[at]fastwebnet[dot]it

Thank you!

I can't wait to see the full movie, The effects look awesome.I don't know if its true or not, but I read some where that it was only shot with a $400 camera. If it was, Its has some awesome quality for 400 bucks. I love all the little details like when the sabers hit the wall and it leaves a mark and the camera shaking durring the fight. give a heightened realism.

I HIGHLY doubt this was shot with a 400 dollar camera. Maybe you're forgetting a zero there or something, because 400 dollars isn't even enough to get a lower grade 3CCD camcorder. This footage quality looks similar to a Canon XL2's quality to me, a camera whose price far surpasses 400 dollars.

It might have been recorded from a Panasonic PV-GS400 or some sort of 3CCD camera.

WOW! Great actors (something you rarely see on amateur films). I loved the shot from a distance during the light sabre fight. Great job!!

Is the scene at the end supposed to represent sexual penetration like in Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" and "Oedipus Rex"?

On another note, great visuals.

Wow! This was simply awsome! I loved the editing, the music\SFX and the visuals were stunning! I mean, some of those shots looked like they could have been from a real Star Wars movie, it was just awsome! And I see that you've understand the consept of taking the sound completly down right before a climax or anything important, it was very well edited. The trailer didn't give away too much of the story though, but because of the great visuals and overall I actually give this a 5\5... Terriffic job!

Brilliantly stylized and hints of an obvious European flare that should have been prevailent in Episodes "1 thru 3"!

We can only hope to see the completion of this project one day!

Incredible- the play on visual versus tantilization was very well done- the audience is caught trying to discover what's taking place- ah, but one needs to see the eventual full story for that now don't they!

A decidedly European flare that's been missing from the "first 3" episodes in the prequal trilogy!

My hat is off to you good sir you and your crew are incredible!

Yesterday my wife rated my movie from my account, so it seems that I voted for my own movie that is quite lame. Can you please remove my vote? Thanks

I am one hundred and ninty nine percent Jealous of you and your crew. I hope the story is as good as the visuals, no chance of a dubbed version per chance? I hate reading subtitles unless its an Alien speaking.
