It is interesting all that can be done with consumer electronics today, especially making movies. I think that it is really cool what a few hundred dollars and a little imagination can get you. (I am not talking about partying on the weekends either)
There are a ton of fan films out there, especially StarWars related. Some of my favorites are made with action figures. And these are great examples too of some of the live action stuff people are doing, not necessarily StarWars related, and very professional looking.
Be sure to check out Grayson, Worlds Finest, and Batman: Dead End.
I’d pay good money to see Grayson.
