Macbeth Wars Lightsaber Battle


Macbeth Wars Lightsaber Battle
"Macbeth Wars Lightsaber Battle" on Google Video
This is the climactic lightsaber battle between Macbeth and Duncan in a grade 12 English production of Macbeth done in Star Wars style. It's amazing. The students say very modestly in their intro that it's "very rough" because it was their first ever movie and they shot it in only 5 hours. My god. I'd like to see what they could do if they had real time and money!! You can also find the full-length "movie" on Google Video - it's well worth your time, and don't be put off by the opening scenes: they are meant as a joke. It really gets going about half a minute in.

Wow, that's terrific! And somebody taught them some good stuff about fight choreography, and shooting angles. What fun!

Did you have a look at the full version? It's very clever. [As an English prof] I was particularly impressed with the way they integrated the Shakespearean plot elements in with the Star Wars backdrop.

I didn't--I still am about twenty overdue tasks away from winning some TV time--but I do plan to.
