For those interested in volunteering their time for visual FX work, please no negative criticisms. Yes this is a not-for-profit project, and although no money is being made off of this we plan to handle this as a art showcase and will be presenting this at various conventions upon completion next year. So we'd like to feature those whom would like to be a part of this.
This is a side project of ours, we only ask those who wish to help out on our ambitious endeavor.

JHM Productions presents


Based on the characters and films of Akira Kurosawa and George Lucas, Our tribute to the great filmmakers of the sci-fi, action genres,who inspired me to follow my dreams to a galaxy, far, far, away…

Currently at 60% filming completed, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

[Story Synopsis]
The story takes place ten years after the events of Episode 3-Revenge of the Sith.
After episode 3 ended, we know that all Jedi are extinct by the time of episode 4, and opens the door to our story, for these seven characters that survived the purge, so our characters will be new ones I have written and will focus on their fight against evil forces (not imperial, till the end at least).

Our story focuses on a gifted young girl and her mysterious father as they set out on a quest to find warriors to defend their planet from the invading marauder army. The marauder's pillage and purge the peaceful villages, reigning terror and destruction in their path. Lead by a mysterious dark warrior who instills fear in the eyes of all who encounter him.
On their quest to find those that will defend them, they come across an assortment of characters, which turn out to be Jedi in hiding. So they gather others in hiding who will fight. They come to aide the people,training them and building defenses as they get ready for the final battle against the marauders army, but their paths will soon collide with an even more terrifying threat…

Will be needing an assortment of visual FX work, roto-scoping, cloning, backgrounds, 3D environments, etc.

I will be posting up storyboards and screen grabs of various scenes and technical details on what will be needed.

Will be showcasing 9 different worlds in the film.
Majority of the film takes place on Dantooine.

Here are some pics of the various characters and scenes to give you a heads up and give you an idea of the look and feel we will have for this film. Those of you familiar with the Original Kurosawa classic will note the attention to detail we emphasized on the re-imaging of this classic.
Main movie posters




Comparison shot of the original "Shichinin no Samurai" (Seven Samurai)










Opening sequence storyboard of Marauder ship landing as witnessed by main actress(Kiri)


screen grab from one of our "Order 66"flashback sequences aka "Rambo" homage


Another "Order 66" flashback sequence aka "Saving Private Ryan" homage

Will have more to come, stay tuned.

Please feel free to post your fancy and your contact info if you are interested in helping out on this project.

Mahalo nui loa(thank you very much in Hawaiian)

I would love to help, as this seems to be a very nice project you have going on... I take it all you need is lightsaber rotoscoping, right? I can also do 3D backrounds (not motion tracking or anything like that).

I would be willing to put some time in for rotoscoping. However, I can't do any 3D work, backgrounds, or anything like that. If you'd like me to give you some example work of rotoscoping, I'd be happy to show you some. Either give me a PM or e-mail me at koolyule98@yahoo.com

I'm willing to do some roto, maybe some of the cloning, though I don't have any access to a 3d application but I do have an example of some roto I've done in past.

Pm me if you want some help.

Thanks guys for your support. Heres some stuff we shot last year, no FX or color correction done yet. Just to give you an idea, although none of the real big action sequences are in these clips.

If there is anything i can do to help, view some of my projects here www.kelleher.com.au

Anything from rotoscoping, to matt painting, to grading to whatever. I'm happy to help.

Something i noticed : in the image above note on the RIGHT EDGE (hilt side) of the LEFT BLADE, the green glow overlaps the mans body... this is wrong.

you need to mask that off or else the blades will appear to float above the footage.

You'll be amazed how much depth it adds.

Otherwise lovely.
Keep it up!

Wow just based on the screen shots I think we're all in for a real treat when this project get's finished.

Wanted to know if I can ask some basic questions that I don't believe I have seen yet even though this is a get help post.

What type of Camcorder was or is being used to shoot this production?

Is there a website yet?

Will the music be strait from Star Wars or will you guys be composing your own material?

Best of luck with this project I'll keep watching.

This looks awesome, you've really done good on the costumes and story! With some good effects your movie will turn out great! I would love to help you in any way possible. I can do keying, effects (muzzle flashes, explosions, lazers, lightsabers,ect.), and some work wit 3D enviroments, as I am currently learning to use the 3D animation software Bryce. I don't have a demo reel at this time, but I'm working on one. PM me if theres anything else you would like to know!

Hey, First off I want to say that this all looks absolutely amazing and the costumes are fantastic, costumes can make or break a movie and I'd see this one just for the costumes. Just one thing, this normaly doesn't matter too much but on the picture with the two jedi saberlocked there was not glow on the faces, just on a close up like that it's something that adds realism, its not something that stood out as a problem, it looked wicked, just thought that might help normaly it wont matter in a wide short or of a full person but just something that close(or in the dark) the lightsaber gives off coloured light. but none the less it all looks great. What I'm presuming are the bad guys are one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

some WIP photos of our scaled "Marauder Pirate Ship" is a ship fit to carry pirates, mercenaries and bounty hunters alike.

based off of Princess Leia's Blockade Runner/tanative IV/Correlian Corvette, with the Millennium Falcons cockpit and more heavily armed then its predecessor.
Its a 4 foot model which we've been working on for a few years when we have the time but its slow to get finished. After numerous retrofits changing the outer parts were about only 70% on this one thus far.
Doing some motion tracking just like the old skool ILM.
I also got a some people working on 3D version of the ship for the quick scenes for the opening shot after the opening scroll.

It's not often that females are given the on-screen opportunity to fight and even less when two girls get to fight each other.

Holy crap, is that a laser whip? I've read of them in books, but never seen it in a movie. Mostly because they're so dang hard to rotoscope. That's gonna be awesome.

Man, that thing's looking pretty ace - refreshing to see that you're using miniatures over CG ships. Also, where'd you get your sabers? They look quite good - remind me of RandomSabers, And finally, is that a small triceratops skull on the swoop bike? o_O

I can lend a hand if you need it.

For 3D I use Maya and have training in modeling (poly, NURBs, or sub-d's), animation, lighting, rendering (standard Software or MentalRay), particles, dynamics (both rigid and soft bodies), fluids (2D and 3D but 3D fluids take forever on my computer), and I've dabbled a little bit in MELScripting.

For Compositing I use Combustion and can do both 2D and 3D composites, image tracking, image stabilization, morphing, warping, roto work (ugh.), paint work (wire removal, etc), lighting or other electrical phenomenon using a tablet, and the standard keying, matting, colour correction, motion graphics, as well as matte painting.

This project intrigues me. Looks like there is great production value and a plot line more then "Jedi and Sith meet. They have a duel."

I can give that farmstead type building a shot if you'd like.

Everything looks fantastic. I have but one comment on the lightsabers. I'm not a hardcore fan or anything but I have never seen a Jedi dual wield, use a double bladed lightsaber or any other weapon that is other than a traditional lightsaber.

I have always belived that Jedi hold a sense of honor in using a traditional lightsaber. The weapons of the Sith (double-blade, curved handle, dual weild, etc.) are considered chaotic and unorthodox. Which is why the Sith use them.

But of course, the original lore in almost anything is usually ignored for cinematic effect on a regular basis. I just thought I'd put that in there since I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to sticking to a story's lore. Especially in fan films.

But again, everything looks awsome and very professional. I hope someday I can shoot a film at that level.

Good point, I did take that into consideration when i wrote the script long ago, i even wanted to base the long sword donned by kikuychu

from the orignal Seven Samurai for our wannabe but scratched that idea, because i thought a spear like lightsaber weapon would have been ridiculous, but when it came to weapons, i thought, well this is ten years in the wild wild west of the great jedi purge. I did research on the lighsabers and the different types, and the dual blade used by maul was a weapon, but not used, but only for practice.
Anakin dual wields 2 sabers in his fight initial attack on Dooku in AOTC,
but is quickly dispatched to one again.
Then in ROTS, he scissor cuts Dookus head off.

I changed it up a little with our character Renko,who has a mean temper but is a good guy, he develops some pretty unorthodox weapons to fight off the nasty bounty hunters and imperial agents that are pursuing him.

Just because it was an unorthodox move for the jedi, doesn't mean it was unheard of. Many Jedi preferred combat with Dual Wielding Lightsabers or a double-ended training stave. A quick search told me that Cin Drallig, a character in the film, book and games (apparently) - Teaches these very routines.

And Like he said, this character is slightly tempered anyway, so might express his anger through unconventional fighting styles. From the pictures all of the 'by-the-book' Jedi have single wield single bladed lightsabers.

As far a duel lightsaber information... Gonna use some of my fanboy knowledge...


Duel bladed dueling was a lightsaber form that is known as Jar'Kia. Many Jedi were taught this form by Cin Drallig, though few actually mastered the form. Aayla Secura did in fact use this form (In the battle of Geonosis) but not regularly. It was more likely for Sith to use the form then Jedi. Obi-Wan even practiced it... So it's quite possible. If you want information, check out the wookieepedia article. Hopefully my information matched what the article says.. if not.. I'll consider it a good thing...


The movie's looking great! Keep the updates coming!

EDIT: Jambuster, if I remember correctly, Cin Drallig was in Episode III (He was fighting Vader when Obi-Wan activated the security footage), he takes a more of a center role in the episode III video game, and he was in the book "Star Wars:Yoda - Dark Rendezvous" smile

It is with great sadness that i announce farewell to 2008, what a crappy year it has been for me personally,
Starting off the new year with my mother passing in early January, and it ends with the passing of my father whom passed away right before Christmas.
So it wasnt so merry for myself. But along with loss there has been much gain in our production, although we still are in production with the film , alot of our other small projects have been taking off, its been a rocky road with many obstacle, both personally and financially, with the world in recession over the last year, I want to say goodbye to 200i8 and strive for greatness next year.
Hopefully 2009 will shine a much brighter light on my life. Good luck and Maoulii maka Hiki Hou !(Happy New years in Hawaiian) to all those who have supported me and my production, best of luck and congratulations in the new year!
