    Hi all.
    I'm sure many of you have already seen this web site on the star
    wars kid If you haven't... it's about a
    kid messing around with a golf stick retriever acting out a scene from star
    wars. People have added their own versions and added him to film trailers
    (poor kid). I was so impressed by the talent of the rendering done,I'd like
    to have a go myself(not with this kid though). So what is needed to start
    this type of rendering. Never tried it before but I can see how it can
    become addictive to play about with film trailers ect.
    Thank in advance.

    Most of that type of editing is done with professional equipment with a
    price tag most people can't afford.
    When you go to the video section, you get the impression others have made
    various versions of it, when in fact, it's a trick to get you to see other

    Quite frankly, I don't think 15 million have downloaded it. Like most video
    stuff, over bloated ratings.

    The kid does nothing more than a poor imitation of a fight scene slinging
    the stick around and practically falls on his face doing it.

    If it wasn't for the showing on "letterman", the kid would be just another

    So what?

    No - the "So what" can't follow from what you just said.

    It can follow from the "Ooh! Wow!" that many people emit
    when they see it.
