question about Ryan vs. Dorkman

Who's the Sith and who's the Jedi?

I think Dorkman is supposed to be the Sith.

Why are they fighting? Because it's a fucking light saber video!!!! What else are you supposed to do with light sabers??? Go fishing with them?

Ryan worked for LucasArts just a short while after making that video.

He is now employed at some visual effects company and has already
won an emmy. He's quite gifted/talented.

In those kind of films, this question might not be feasible. I personally see those films not as "Star Wars fanfilms" but just as "Lightsaber Duels". It seems that only lightsabers + the two jedi-powers "Force Push" and "Force Pull"
were taken from the Star Wars canon and not the rest of the background (Some of the duel films of course are set in the SW universe (look out for Jedi robes )). Many are just "some guys with lightsabers fighting" but a few actually do establish a background different from the SW universe. A good example for those is "Highwaymen" http://www.vimeo.com/774921

Re: question about Ryan vs. Dorkman

The burning question is this: Which one is Ryan and which one is Dorkman?

The one with the glasses is Micael "Dorkman" Scott, the other one is Ryan Wieber.
