The following guest article was sent in by Mark Edlitz, director/producer of Jedi Junkies:
My friends and I made a movie about extreme Star Wars fans called JEDI JUNKIES. The film is 75 minutes long and took 4 years to make. Doing a little simple math (and using an online calculator) that means that it took an average of 19.4 days for each minute of screen time. Given that glacially slow work pace people ask me, “Why did you make JEDI JUNKIES?” That’s an easy answer: It was a labor of love.
Syfy has released its slate of new scripted (whoa!) shows, and surprisingly some of these could work – or they could just be seen as knockoffs. Check them out and let us know which ones you think will work. I don’t know about the self-spoofing shows involving Lee Majors or Kevin Sorbo, with the latter’s Legendary essentially Galaxy Quest but using Sorbo’s own background. Zeros could be the most original, although it follows in the footsteps of zombie comedy movies Shaun Of The Dead and Zombieland.
