Well as yaw all know that I was doing star wars spoofs a while back, and I started a large spoof after my third one, but then I did other spoofs before this one was even finished, and then other projects came around and I store this one on my OneDrive and forgot all about it, and when I was looking through my OneDrive files I looked at it and said why didn't I ever finish this, I guess I lost interest in doing anymore star wars spoofs, don't get me wrong I'm still a really big fan, I was going to make this my final star wars spoof but not sure if I really should finish it since I done moved on to other things, so i decided to go ahead and share what I have made of it, maybe yaw can tell me if its worth finishing, and if so my interest needs a boost...lol!

Hi Clay,

This must be something you did in the early days of muvizu I belief... It is worth to continue it, altough you might consider to do it all over again, with the knowledge and skills you have today.

I have a couple of suggestions if you don't mind. I'm critical...

  • There is a spelling mistake at the intro logo. It says persents instead of presents.
  • At the blue intro text there is 2 x be.
  • In the yellow text are some mistakes too. the the empire. bothe, and thier.
  • The intro go's on very long after the text flies into the distance. Maybe the original star wars is similar, but I would shorten it. As well as when that robot appears after it crashes.
  • I miss lights and shadows, or they are barely visible. That makes it very flat.
  • The part where they fly over the snowy mountains looks odd. You could have a look at outerra.com It's a 3d globe and you can fly all over the place over mountain tops and record that as a clip.
  • I don't get it when they fall out of the spaceship why there is a pause between them, they should fall together, don't they?
  • The part with the trooper holding a fishing rod with a chicken bone is funny, but you can do better than that now in real 3d and keyframe movement instead of a static drawing. Maybe the fart and flames can come sooner.
  • The commander in the AT AT cockpit intro takes a bit too long without something happening.
  • Darth vader's voice is a bit difficult to understand because of the effect I guess.
  • The last part in the rebel base sounds a bit like they are in a bathroom, I think the echo room is too small.

Well, I hope you appreciate my tips and if you do continue it, good luck.

Thanks ikes, well my adopted brother is really doing all of the intros and most of the writing, it sort of a two man project, he's a lot younger then me and still in high school, and he's a special needs person but he's is really into this sort of thing, to tell you the truth he kind of wrote the story on this, he seen my other two star wars and wanted to do one, after he had done the text scroll I really didn't want to hurt his feels because he's very touchy about it, after a while he seen all of the other star wars that I have done he realized that there was a lot of mistakes, so he gave up on helping me with the rest, I guess this is what got my interest down to a stand still, ever since I didn't want to do any more star wars, that's why I put all of my star wars characters in the store, but then I realized something, should I let this go to waist, or should I redo everything, his ideas are really cool, like me he was taking the whole part of the Hoth Battle and making it funny, the part that you mentioned about them falling out of the snow Speeder was that they forgot to fasten their seat belt and lock the cockpit hatch and the door flies open and they fall out, I tried not to let him think he wasn't doing a good job, but I wanted this to be our project, but he left it, before I posted what we had done he didn't want his name mentioned, he's really touchy and being his condition I didn't fuse, and for me I have a problem of getting some of my words mixed up or I'll spell them backwards, I been like that since I was younger, but now I always have some to make sure I don't do that before I show it, I guess I have what you call dysgraphia

Clayster, you've put a lot of work into this already...no point in letting that go to waste. I say finish it.


I feel kind of responsible for talking you out of your spoofs. My only intent was to encourage you to pursue your own marketable products. But your productivity is so high, I think you have plenty of time for both. And the spoofs might help draw audiences for your own proprietary shows. So... as long as you don't get sued for using other peoples' themes in your spoofs, I don't see why you shouldn't continue with them

I'm not sure what legal protocol is about that. Sometimes the lawyer sends a cease and desist letter and you have a chance to pull it from circulation before they take legal action. I'm pretty sure that simply saying that it's a not-for-profit video doesn't protect you legally. Copyright law doesn't differentiate between for-profit and not-for-profit use.

The good news is that you can buy a license to use just about anything... including well known movie theme songs (which is the most likely thing you'll get nailed for). I think it isn't terribly expensive either, but each case is different.

Hey don't feel responsible, in most cases you were right, I needed to work on my own thing, and to be able to sell my stuff I make, and its been working out good so far, not as mush as I was expecting, but sells are coming along slowly but surely, I make sure I let it known that Star Wars is the property Of Disney and that its nonprofit, and people for years have been making fan films on youtube and seem to get away with it, they would have to sue lot of people if they did that, I'm a big fan just like them that expresses their love for Star Wars but I make sure i'm careful, and I have been thinking about just redoing the whole thing by myself, and just throw all of my talent and know how into, right now I have been doing a complete Key Frame At At walker battle for this spoof, and already have 15 hours into it, but if I don't decide to redo it, I'll just make the At At scene a video to it's self.
