Atom TV on Comedy Central will have an episode dedicated to the airing Monday night – actually,Tuesday morning at 2am, but that’s still Monday for me. George Lucas himself will be introducing his 2008 Selects winner, Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge Juno spoof ‘Padme.’ Also being shown in their entirety are ‘Tarkin’ n Friends,’ ‘Chad Vader,’ ‘SW Grindhouse’ and ‘Incident At Toshi Station.’
The show will rerun in the wee hours Wednesday (12:30pm) and Thursday (2am,) and at 10am Sunday the 12th.
It’s time to vote for your favorites in the . The voting period is short – only until July 10 – and there are quite a few finalists… So start watching now! (Looks like the winners will be announced at San Diego Comic Con.) Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge
I’ll be back with my recommendations later – but a quick peruse does show a few videos that we’ve featured are in the running:
ESB in 60 seconds, Tarkin n’ Friends and Ryan vs. Dorkman 2.
With only 23 days until this year’s deadline,
Atomfilms has relaunched their site for the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge. Entries have to be in by May 27th, so get cracking!
I don’t necessarily agree with this list entirely (The Vader Sessions? #2? Really?) but Day of the Jedi’s
coolest does hit most of your instant (and not-so-instant) internet classics. Star Wars videos
It’s been a weird few weeks – here’s some of the stuff we missed on the official site.
Kids take a crack at Episode II and the Original trilogy. Their Anakin is totally going to star in American Pie 12 one day. Also… FerusFilms?
NOTICE: As of at least March 2008, the site at createstarwars.org is no longer live. Your guess is as good as mine.
CreateStarWars.org isn’t the first fan-produced attempt we’ve seen at the post-ROTJ EU, but they are quite clear on their goal: to create 3-D movies out of The Thrawn Trilogy. Period.
Sadly, I’m not entirely buying their
manifesto, or at least the focus on how awful the prequels were. Look: they’re here, they’re done, lay off the whining already.
Still, I can’t say I entirely disagree with the concept as a whole. Not exactly blown away here (it’s
Heir to the Empire,) but it’s a nice goal. Never say never…
