|A Jedi Knight goes up against a rogue Jedi in this epic duel to the death!|
Now, keep in mind that this duel wasn't choreographed in the least. The 'rogue Jedi' suggested we go into my front yard and film a goofy duel one day, so we did. For your viewing pleasure........

173.28MB, lasts 3 minutes and 16 seconds... Good job! Sorry mate, but I guess you should compress it a bit, cause I don't have time to download it ;S

Downloaded it and watched. Quite entertaining. I was laughing and shaking my head at the same time. Placement of the effects was decent in most of the film. Good job with the decapitation. Not the best film on here, but certainly not the worse. I'd give it a mid-range 3. Can't believe the size of the file though. You must have an awesome ISP to be able to post something that big, and with all of the downloads since it was posted.

Ok, I'll see what I can do about getting a smaller size in there also.
It was also my very first attempt at anything like this, so
that should explain away any shortcomings.

I liked it a lot! Considering you say there was no "choreography" , the fighting wasn't too bad (better then A LOT of the stuff on here). The camera(wo)man did a nice job of keeping the marauding Jedis centered.

after i finally got it downloaded my friend and i watched it. this was a very fun movie had me laughing al the way through. for not planning the fights it was a lot better than most fights posted on this website. the only thing i didn't get was the Kraken music from Pirates of the Carribbean you should have had a duel of the fates remix or something. overall a great movie.

The fight was pretty good for not having any choreography, except it was kinda slow and not mention you would've been better off choreographing it. Also, the effects could have been better.
Over all it's great for just spontaneously deciding to film a duel on one after noon.

nice, i liked the effects! only one thing, you forgot to rotoscope, or did a lazy job, on the lighsaber that was lying on the ground after the guy dropped it.

Hee hee, yeah, I did a lazy job.
See, after we filmed it, I remembered, 'Oh great, I forgot to remove my stick....oh well.' Buuut, we didnt' want to redo the whole shot, so during rotoscoping, I didn't take my time either. I keyframed it about every five frames or something.

.......Why do I doubt that Mr. Spielberg actually watched
'Spot-on dueling'? It wasn't even choreographed. Is he sure he's not just spamming?
