Rook just showed me this marvellous home-made video of a lightsaber fight by Ryan Wieber and Michael “Dorkman” Scott, some Menlo Park teenagers. That’s some damn fine fight choreography! Really, watch the whole thing. Perfect pacing and acting, dramatic tension of a long fight sustained, everything well done. Better than many of the “real” movie fight scenes! These guys are well informed by Hong Kong movies and Westerns as well as by Star Wars. A fight is a story. Many moviemakers don’t understand that!
I notice they credited Pat Wieber for “Transportation/Facilitator”… is that a “thanks mom” I hear?
