Found this high school fan film saga on YouTube

It's actually quite funny and rather impressive with what they had to work with...

The opening battle goes a bit long, but if you need to skip ahead, check out their homage to the STVI zero G sequence, haha!

The additional parts afterward are pretty funny, too.

Not too bad all things considered. Just one thing puzzles me - They go though all that work yet no one can hem up their sleeves?

Niiiice zero-gee sequence. Seriously. That must have been a ton of work.

It has to do with the language they're speaking. Apparently, not everyone understands English.

I really like the camera work. It's a neat little treat eerily reminiscent of stuff I did when I was that age...

Re: Found this high school fan film saga on YouTube

One element I found really well done was the background chatter in both parts of "Part 2." It made the setting seem larger, as if it really were a ship and not just some hallways.

Pretty good for high school students! I was impressed! It had a good seat-of-the-pants feel!

These kids where impressive...

Anyone catch that bit at the start of part on about not attempting the stunts and that two students where suspended after doing them?

Not bad at all, especially considering their resources.

Wish I'd been that good at that age.

Loved it! And all I can say about that is, God bless Micro Machines.

Fun for them who made it but essentially unwatchable. I mean, there's no story.

I love the tripods-as-phaser rifles.
