Heh, well, I'm pretty sure that no type of Star Wars fan film should be THAT gory. And what is it that's supposed to be causing the exploding head? Blaster/laser round? Bullet? Sword? Lightsaber? All of those options that I gave surely would not orchestrate a gory and bloody and violent explosion like that.

Well, you see, I like star wars as much as the next guy.... but think about it, the ability to use the force and lift things 10 times heavier than you? haha come now i dont think i would just throw someone across the room, i would make my enemys head implode tard . or pull their torso one way and push their legs the other direction.

what im trying to say is, starwars is good dontget me wrong, but it lacks the real potential of the power of the force....

anyway thanks for the help everyone, but i found someone to do it for me. smile
