Wow I'm surprised and yet not to surprised about this new documentary in the works. It covers an interesting issue. Can someone be such a hyped up fan of something that it causes them to hate what they love?
The filmmakers of The People vs. George think so.
Created by devoted Star Wars fans and using a new-ish style of directing this will prove to be a slightly interesting film. Not only are the close associates of Lucas being interviewed but the directors are giving the fan's a voice allowing them to send in video submissions to defend or oppose Lucas' film, writing, directing and marketing choices.
This movie is latching onto the new Youtube wave and so it has many different clips and animated shorts I think even if it is a total nerd fest it will be interesting to watch from a new media standpoint.

I can't believe this little piece of advertising I saw yesterday that my school just put out. It's terrible! I was appalled when I saw it. The lighting is so-so and the camera movement! The camera movement its terrible has the maker of this clip not heard of cutting? Those are just some of the issues I have, an advertisement should not be more than 2 minutes in length. This feels more like unsolved mysteries than an ad for the school. OH AND LETS NOT FORGET THE COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS! The song at the end is on a CD that has not even been released yet. I doubt they asked the artist for the use of the song. DENNIS! You like your reading the whole time, DO A VOICE OVER!
I'm not going to go into what I think the Sociology course at this school does to the students enrolled in it but from the ones that I have witnessed I don't believe there will be any 'better helping' coming from them. These systems that they want to be fixed generally can't be fix by us 'western folk' unless we go and invade the country, and well we all know what happens then. Honestly it saddens me to know that the guy who made this thing is one of the senior film buffs in the communications program here. But that's what we get for not specializing I guess.
