You know, I really don't know the history of all these sites, nor the strange right-wing fixation TFN has. It might be a story worth telling sometime - if you weren't sick of telling it already.

So much drama!

I won't say I never frequented TFN, but it was so long ago that I genuinely don't remember. It was definitely before the OS forums opened up, so it was before they became the bloated webpresence that they are now.

The impression I got from talking to TFN regulars on the OS forums is exactly what Knight describes -- a bunch of shitheads who thought that being superfans of the most popular motion picture series ever made somehow made them unique. If you want to show that you have distinctive taste, you do so with a fine rare wine, not Miller Lite. Not that there's anything wrong with Miller Lite, per se, it's just that no one standing in line to vomit at a keg party ever tries to act like their puke smells better because they drank the original Miller Lite.

There is nothing I enjoy more than nerd-on-nerd bickering.

For those who aren't as lame as me who will read the thing, here is all you need to know:

- A dude made a Star Wars fan film "inspired" by Wierd Al.

- Said film was submitted for hosting in TFN's fan films section and was rejected.

- Rather than a standard rejection letter, the dude recieved a point-by-point "review" of why his film sucked from TFN.

- The dude is now pissed because he sees TFN as being staffed by people who consider themselves the best kind of Star Wars fans.

- He then explains why they are wrong to do that while simultaneously implying that he is the best kind of Star Wars fan.

- He was against Josh Griffin's promoting of the Star Wars kid on TFN because he felt it was cruel, a sentiment which I happen to agree with. (Not that we shouldn't be able to download it and laugh at the fat fuck once it hits the internet, but promoting the shit on MSNBC to pimp TFN? That's fucked up to do to a fellow Star Wars nerd, Griffin.)

That's it. How it took him ninety pages to sum that up is beyond me.

But clearly, no matter how justified his gripes are, this douchebag is the victim of overzealous parental encouragement.

It's time for this fuckcharlie to stop caring so much about Star Wars, not to mention being butt-hurt by being rejected by a bunch of forty year old hog stranglers at TFN.

If the guy truly feels his fan movie is the shit, then he should stop whining about tfn and get enough nutsack to get over it. Who the hell cares how much his creation sucks ass, just the fact he did something speaks volumes.

It's 11 pm here on the west coast, my lights are turned off and I had all the intention of reading the awefully long story. But with the black background and white letters I couldn't do it, the letters started turning blue on me, freakin weird.

I used to be really active over at TFN Fan Film forums, at least back when Digital Llama Radio was popular, and Duality was the coolest thing anyone had ever seen.

It was a great place to get feedback especially if you were a beginner at visual effects and filmmaking. But now, there's really a huge divide in the fan films that are being made. There's either the "home movie" in your garage type of fan film, or the $30,000 fan film. And yes, the drama over in Fan Films was a lot worse than anything the spoiler community has seen. Think about it: This is personal work that's on the line, and people would easily become targets because of their films.

Oh well, thankfully I've moved beyond wanting to make a Star Wars fan film, and instead focusing on my film classes and developing original stories.

BTW doEs any1 knoW when Prelude 2 hope is coMing out?!???

I haven't looked at that page yet, and I doubt I will, since the comments here seem to state that it's all just a whine show over something as ridiculously worthless and meaningless as a "fan video"... Is it? Jesus.

I would concentrate on my own ideas, not somebody elses.

The understatement of the history of mankind.

I enjoy the Star Wars films and am a filmmaker myself, but I've never been able to even loosely toy with the idea of making anything from Star Wars. This is a sort of fanatacism that must be tempered by greater parental/guardian supervision.

actually, i came up with that campaign, so lets make that clear. secondly, like i said before the only problem I really had with this guy is that he said his movie was better than most of them at TF.N. Since that post, I've seen a few, and I liked them enough. They weren't really that good, but they were much better than his film.

Hell, I hated Revelations, but it was so much better than this movie, and I know thats a tough comparison to make because Revelations had alot of backing and graphics behind it, but thats a movie alot of people know, and having read this thread I'd like to warn people not to waste their time.

Personally, I am not too big a fan of the EU, and I hate fan films, but I'd rather read the books than watch this shit any longer. If Revelations was as bad as it was with all the backing and hype, than I am done with fan films from here on out.
