Beat me to the punch

Youtube's down for maintenance AGAIN, so look for RunCom #56 tomorrow. In the meantime, watch this guy, who got frickin' featured using a gimmick much like my own. However, he's making his movie for 10,000 pounds, which is like $18,000. Boxing Day will ultimately cost more than $1,000, but a lot less than that.

Star Wars Episode IV.I: Revenge of the Fanboys

Okay... My theory is that youtube did a review of this to make sure it was kosher and temporarily took it down, because it's back now. For the moment.

This was for my Field and Lighting Class down at SCAD back in 2005(?). The assignment was Fantasy vs. Reality. So I did a forced perspective shot with a toy of the Millennium Falcon. I screwed up, though, by not widening out on my last shot to really destroy the illusion. It almost works too well the way it is. Plus, my friends as Star Wars characters is totally self-indulgent and it cracks me up.
