Almost three years ago, I featured a video in a post where two amateur filmmakers made their own lightsaber movie. It turned out to be quite a hit. They promised to make a sequel and now, here it is.
They’ve made everything a lot more impressive this time around. There are a ton of environmental effects which look awesome. The sabers make contact with objects numerous times which produce sparks. They even have the sabers cut into metal and the molten mess that results looks as good as if ILM did it for them.
The YouTube version is fine but the high-quality version can be found here. It’s worth a download if you’ve got the bandwidth. It’s this version that really shows off the special effects.
