Damn!

It's the whole movie...including the bonus DVD! You can download the whole thing via BitTorrent. I'm going to do it....very cool!

FYI - it includes all the DVD artwork etc.

The effects look really good from the trailer. Acting looked a bit weak.

He should just remake it as his own film.

Just my .02.

i've seen the movie, fx were pretty amazing. with enough render time and constant tweaking i believe the visual fx created on the desktop can rival those coming out of ILM, hollywood, etc. the costume, sets, etc. they were all amazing.

but i always see a major problem with the script/dialogue when it comes to fan-films and actually short movies in general. while the ideas are great, the acting OK, the dialogue was just very amatuer. even without a lot of fx, costume, etc. if these short movies could contain really good dialogue/story/acting i think that can beat any visual fx movies any day.

Great, I have been keeping this movie in my eyesight for a while. I'm not a fan of star wars, but I like it they brought so many energy in a fan film, you should watch one of the behind the scenes clips, it's great!
