"Before the Jedis joined the Republic and before the time of the Sith, the Jedis are known only as a people of religion. But during a time of conflict, the Ancient Scrolls of the Force are stolen. The Jedi Council must now stop the unveiling of a dark side, while avoiding an alliance with a corrupt senator. All of destiny will change, and a civil war between the most powerful of kind is about to begin."
This started out one winter break when my friend showed me some videos of lightsaber battles people made in their own backyard. I was totally blown away by the effects... not so much by the story or the production. Once I learned how to create lightsabers in After Effects, I knew it was time to move forward and create the ultimate fan film.
