Star Wars : Just movies? Or perhaps a way of life...
Over the past twenty eight years Star Wars and its fans have sparked an amazing film, cultural and societal phenomenon, one that will be with us for quite some time. But it's not a matter of a film simply being popular and selling tickets. The Star Wars fans devotion goes much deeper than that. Many of them relate to the story as a part of their lives. We are not just talking about those willing to wait weeks and months in line to see the new movie, those that make elaborate fan films, or those that have full costumes made that they wear frequently. Many of these fans live their lives with Star Wars being a very big part of it. Some of them even practicing the "Jedi" religion.
Like a lot of you, Star Wars was one of the coolest things going when I was a kid. I got every SW toy I could get my hands on. I felt like I could be a Jedi. I used to be able to quote most any line from the movies. I used to have "light saber" battles with my friends, and by myself... These battles were with everything from sticks to the first "light saber" toys (which we broke almost immediately). If DV cameras and the Internet were around when I was a kid, I might have been just like the "StarWars kid". I use Star Wars terminology daily without realizing it. When I was a kid I wanted a light saber more than anything... I'm not gonna lie... I still would like one. Does that make me a dork?...
In anticipation of the release of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith, the From The Shadows crew took a trip to the "Star Wars Line" in Hollywood. There we met up with Aaron Mosny Master Sabersmith and Jedi knight. In "From The Shadows: Box 2.0" the FTS crew gives you a glimpse of what it is like to be a Jedi. Join us as we bring you "Saberology".
You can view Box 2.0 at From the Shadows dot TV
Thanks in advance to those of you that seed the torrent.
...and keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for the release of Box 3.0
