lol that was great. Youre first creation was funny. i remember watching near by when it came out. hadnt laughed so much smile this trailer looks great. I mean you guys could do a series of this. just be carefull you dont over use it. to which it starts getting mediocar. like light saber fights all the time. *just a word of warning* i think them two guys as characters, feeding off wach other works great. of course doesnt have to always be about rules. but the bickering is great. well guys keep it up. cant wait to see this film!

Thanks for all the comments guys. The vids are encoded in DivX, not surprised it doesn't work on a MAC!

Dude....i mean...dude, come on. what was that? the dialogue and audio was horrible, not to mention the fading out to boring (ie, text) and lightsabre bit has been done too many times elsewhere and better.

I'll give you a 4 out of 5 since I found it quite injoyable and the bloopers were great!

May I just say that I love the british accent. I really wish I could immitate it myself. British accents and constant arguing are just plain funny as hell to me! Especially about what you guys argued about in this film. But I have to judge this as not only a film. But a sequel as well. While the begining of this film was funnier than the other one. The action wasn't good to me. Didn't get me hyped up at all. Pretty nice though 3 stars

PEACE OUT

Half of this was taken up by just people arguing and saying the same things over and over. I'm sorry, but that's just too long. I also have a thing about shots where people are looking right at the camera. Even if it's on purpose, I think that should be avoided. Just my opinion though. The fight was decent, but nothing I've not seen before really. The saber play was a bit too slow too, might want to work on that. And I think your blooper reel went a bit too long. These have been contructive comments. Thank you. biggrin

Thanks for all the comments guys! We will reshoot the beginning to make it a little punchier, a little shorter, with some better angles and lighting. We just wanted to get the beginning done so we could focus on the fight scene. We wanted the fight to be a little longer but we ran out of time, had to move for uni. So we'll reshoot the beginning at some point and maybe extend the fight scene. In the meantime we'll begin working on the final film, "EX".

You keep watching them, we'll keep making them!

The best part for me was the bloopers section. Those were nice to see and with nice edits too. Almost too long, but about right.

Now about the whole thing:

a) Far too long - The arguing at the beginning goes on forever. I'm not a "get to the action" person, but this film made me feel that way.
b) Sabers looked great! - Nice and solid. What were those sticks inside the saber hilts?

There's just one last note. I saw the first one and really liked the riding shotgun argument. If these two movies had been released within a week of each other, it would've gone down a storm and really felt cool. JMO.

Adam.

We've just updated 3 Seconds to make it shorter, cutting out a lot of unneccessary dialog. Hope it's better!
