Good fight coreography. The sound fit well too. I would try different camera angles next time. Keep up the good work.

Uhm..., Samsung ... you just did another alien invasion, maybe cut them a little slack?

heh, good quality etc for just a webcam...

although, i wasn't TOO keen on the actual fight, i guess i have just become bored of them...

although i am planning the ULTIMATE sabre fight, so that may be why i don't feel that anyone's is special...

it was a good effort, but maybe next time (i know it wasn't possible with this one) include more camera angles, maybe move into a different area, like start in the garden, but end in the house, and add a few more things to it...

i liked the way u used the lightning in it, just like in ep2 and return of the jedi smile

yeah, there is something called a TV capture card, it can be used to capture footage off the tv onto the computer, you could connect this up o the tv and computer, play ur footage off your camera, and capture it onto computer...

Not the best light saber fight, but not the worse. I've seen far worse saber fights on this site, but mentioning them and posting it would offend people who are soft. I thought that there could have been more to your coreography, instead of standing still swinging a stick at each other. I would like to see some full movements instead of half or quarter. Do you know what I am saying? Aim for a full swing or a full body moment. Don't be afraid to put your whole body into it. This is the reason why most of the light saber fights and battles are lame. Because they don't put their body into it. In martial arts, you don't lag. When you lag, is where you lose, no matter how good. Remember Bruce Lee? Ever watched his movies? He was the ULTIMATE inspiration for me and for million of other Asian people (Don't know about white folks). The reason why I like his moves and movies, was because he put his WHOLE body into it. Well, not only Bruce Lee, but ALL the other Asian movies. Watch asian movies. They have real talent, unlike these silly white folks, like Charlies Angels. They SUCK!!!! Anyways, my advice is to: Watch Asian or Chinese movies cool (they are better than White movies), and put your whole body into it.

My friend and I are planning out a fight scene clip to show what we know. The fighting style will be mixed Kung Fu with Kendo fighting. Star Wars Episode ONE fighting scenes was inspired by a Kendo martial artist. Notice the ASIAN influence. Most of the light saber fighting was lame until EP. ONE came along.

Keep it up, though. cool

You better know a lot with this type of critizism on these boards


i expect nothing less than hollywood style


i also want to see the whole clip aswell, from other remarks youve made on various posts you want to see the whole movie, fair enough, but us users at the low end of the market have certain financial limits, i believe yours shouldnt have that problem


bring it on....

"Financial limits?" What are you talking about. You have a camera. You film it. You add AlamDV to it. Then Poof! you got Star Wars. No need for Hollywood stuff.

"The Whole Clip"? Well, you probably meant the whole movie. I hope you have DSL, or can wait a few long moments on the 56K or less. I heard that in Canada they hand out free DSL for some reason. Perhaps he lied, but that's what he said.

"Low end?" If any of us were Stinkin rich we would be here. Time and patience would be the cost, really.

As for your "Bring it on..." comments. Be patient. You will see. I have a LIFE beyond this, you know. Though it is a side hobby besides programming, that i do. I will try to make time for video editing.

Financial Limits -- exactly what i mean, your comments on these boards regarding these films, you always have a bad response to them all, we are not made of money, we can only do what we can only do, hence the DV, it has limits, we are showing these limits within our limit of finance, they are good from what ive seen, drop the big budget act and learn to appreciate what we are doing here.

Most of us here have DSL and thats what you have i presume, as you want to see most tests as a full movie (saying that, even tho you commented on their short/test are YOU willing to download their full clip if they go out of their way to get space -- like i said Financial Limits...


your replies to most movies submitted here are you thinking we can pull off Major film pieces, this is a lowend market, we dont intend trying to make a motion picture, you naturally assume we have them capablilites, wrong -- we dont, appreciate what you see here..


So you dont think i have a life beyond this, trust me i do, you seem to at this full time, i came in tonight pissed and saw your stoopid stuff, i had to reply, i dont make a habit outta posting, check my days registered against my posts then look at yours(and probably your alias guest name on here), you came here for a reason, which your doing and replying all the time smile


i hope your time aside for video edting can live up to your own expectations, if you have little time for film making, how the hell can you judge on what you see here


Bring it on...
