An action short, but an epic for certain as a Father duels his son. It is a test of wit, skill, and power; but only one of them will come out victorious!

This is my 2nd attempt working with the FX Pro program. My other is a trailer for a film called Revenge of Master Sushi. I hope you enjoy this film as much as my son and I had making it.

I believe that I can say, without reservation, that this film shall truly go down in history as one of the absolutely greatest pieces of cinematic work ever filmed of a star wars based fight between you and your son. biggrin

Seriously, though. Nice use of the SFX through most of the movie and it certainly made me smile.

Well, seeing as how the kid probably liked Star Wars, it seems like he really liked doing it. But good use of the effects.... wink

In all truthfulness, my son has seen maybe half of episode four. But he knows what light sabers are and thinks those are pretty cool. lol

Well, I guess that's what matters... just like English class; know what a noun and a verb is, and you're good to go (That's the way I see it).

This looked like it was alot of fun to make. I enjoyed watching this film. Your use of the lightsabers as well as the "reloading" was impressive. What system are you using to edit your footage? I really enjoyed this.

The editing program was Intervideo DVD creator. It's a video capture program, pretty low budge, but it gets the job done. wink I'm very pleased you liked the film; the reloading is probably the effect I was most proud of.
