It's by Jeremy West, who made the most amazing home movie I've ever seen: Power of the Sith (http://download.theforce.net/theater/shortfilms/powerofthesith/pots.mov) (25MB so you'll need a fast connection).

Those actors were terrible and the 3d imagery was hoakey what kind of crap was that.;)

Thanks I thought it was really good too for a home brew.

Yeah the first one was cool, execpt when he said the macs were 'slower'.

But he makes a good point.

I saw a show on TV about parents who make their kids do this kind of thing. I really think it pushes the line on good parenting.

I didn't get the impression that Jeremy West was forcing his kids and wife into slave labor as actors. Rather, I suspect that his kids share his enthusiasm for Star Wars. Kids that age love to be superheros. And what better fantasy for a kid than being the all-powerful master who gets all the popsicles he wants? Even if he has trouble getting his tongue to cooperate when he says "sith witch".

how do you figure?

what makes this bad, rather than just a family doing a really cool video project with their mac...?

i saw a show on tv on the e channel about how people who don't have style aren't as good as people who do.... i don't have a sense of style at all... guess i'm worthless after all.

nice work on the switch ad, very clean and not a bad concept, although it is a bit hokey, I still smiled.

Does anyone know what the switch adds background music is? Or where I can find it? I have a class project and I thought it would be fun to do a parady for.

thanks.
