Which sabers did they use by the way?


Ryan works for an effects company and Dorkman is just a small time film maker.

And what do you mean by what sabers?


I meant which kind of sabers were they using. The glass ones, the plastic telescopic ones, something else? I wasn't sure if the glowing blades was a special effect or the glowing glass blades.

They probably used props they made themselves. The glowing on the sabers is special effects.

The hilts are custom machined from aluminum. The blades are woven carbon fiber. The glows were done in Adobe After Effects. I'm still trying to get info one what method they used because it's different from Ryan's method used in RvD.

Those movies were SOOOO COOOL!! Those fights they did look to me how I think lightsaber fights would look in real life. Lots of kicking and punching too as well as just swinging the lightsabers. To be honest, I think the fights look far more realistic and better then a lot of the ones that George Lucas did, though not including the Maul vs. Jedi fight as that kicked butt. I think Jedi would be punching and kicking each other a lot too, not just using the swords. I think Jedi fights in real life would be a lot nastier and uglier, than what is shown in Lucas's movies.
