Although, I guess some people do care. And so, the battle of geeks continues this week with a new fictional fan film that illustrates how some people believe Abrams got to be the guy behind the movie.
may the force be with you
You may remember back when martial arts action filmmaker and stunt performer Eric Jacobus won the hearts and minds of Star Wars fanboys and girls everywhere when he completed the conceptual GoPro take on the Star Wars shortfilm, Vader Strikes. Unquestionable praise and approval from the online viewing and blogging community has since contributed to the development of a sequel, which is starting to look very good for its prospects as having a type of potential for a webseries if the powers that be help make it happen.
The evolution of the internet has provided nearly limitless opportunities for Star Wars fans to invest their share and interest in the cultural unity embodying the fanfare for Star Wars. Virtually anywhere you go online, you will see shortfilm after shortfilm dedicated to promoting independently produced stories and action sequences showcasing a variety of one’s own acting skills and martial arts prowess. I even had a friend back in college who also experimented with rotoscoping, as he was also a Star Wars fan (probably still is, lol). The first shortfilm I watched consistently and enjoyed was Duality by Crew Of Two many years ago. It goes to show the kind of quality that can come from doing something you love, especially if you love making movies.
