have you seen this
star wars fan film? it's amazing. i mean, produced in a garage over 3 years by devoted geeks, it's actually comparable to the prequel films in look, style, and (ahem) acting.
lucas was right about digital technology - that it would open up the world of filmmaking to everyone, that we all have the tools now to make the filmic great american novel. and we can see that, just like writing, a huge budget doesn't improve your ability to string a story together.
episode 3 is gonna suck ya'll. i dunno how anyone can think that it'll be a good film. hel-low eps 1 and 2 sucked. you think he suddenly learned how to make a movie?
