I always looked at Star Wars as being one of the biggest influences for getting into the film industry. So, I got together with a buddy of mine who had stage combat experience and we both collaborated together on choreographing a Lightsaber duel.
This was my final project in one of my classes and man was it tiring. Not only did I have to assume the role of director, cinematographer and editor, but I had to do all of the visual effects by the deadline of the assignment. I had to work off of 3 hours of sleep the night before! This was even after a whole week's worth of VFX work.
