Official Saber Spin Tutorial DVD QUESTIONS & COMMENTS Thread

Well, I was gonna unlock the original topic when the DVD was in the store, but I figured that there should be an open thread for anyone that has any questions about the DVD that I myself can answer.  And with Kit and Han also having copies, they might be able to answer some questions from a buyers perspective.

So if you have any questions, feel free to post them and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks

Pretty soon the DVD will be available to purchase from the Trade Federation storefront here on the  site.  Yoda and Sidious are still working out the cost details of carrying it in the store.  As soon as they decide and I ship the first batch out to them, they will be available.  I'm hoping for sometime early next month.

I do believe this DVD would make an awesome companion gift for anyone getting an FFX for Christmas! 8)

I know, i have been doing some practicing myself from some of the videos, but would really like to have the DVD for slo-mo and other features to help smooth the process along in hopes of impressing some female SW fans heh  ;)

....And all because of your training.

I do have one, that I only used for ebay purchases.
The thing was, I never got familiar with accepting money through the paypal account.  Its only recently that I learned that once fund are transferred into my paypal account I then have to transfer them to my bank.  hahah, I know!  I could never figure out why I couldn't get to the funds in my paypal account to use unless I used paypal to pay for something.

Anyway, I have it figured out now.

Master Skywalker, how is the availability of the DVDs? Like, how many copies will you make for the first batch?

@Kit Fisto: it's an awesome rotoscoping you did in the "admin and mod only" topic  :D Can you/will you rotoscope the entire DVD?

So far, I have 50 DVD's ready to go.  I will continually make more every week and have a fair amount of stock ready to go afterwards.

There is no roto on any of the video in the DVD.  I decided long ago that an effect like that, while making it look good, would only detract from the actual instruction of the video.

I have to really thank Anakin again for making the dvd and tutorials.
Honestly if I learned it anyone can.
Before I never used to really take my sabers out in public.
But now I am to the point where I am confident with my lightsaber style.
I went to the park at dusk today,and within 60 seconds of me duel spinning my sabers there where about 30 kids and 10 parents forming a circle around me..
It was awesome,that all stood in ahh,parents and kids.

The I let 2 kids at a time duel with each other for about a min.
I had so much fun today,and best part is I got it all on recorded..
I will film the vid and upload soon..


But for those of you who are not sure about buying the video just watch my Halloween 06 saber spin skills video

Got my Saber Tutorial DVD in the mail yesterday, along with some AI saber mounts.

I ordered my copy as soon as it became available. Pretty fast delivery seeing as it had to make it all the way to Canberra, Australia.

My wife has already banned me from practicing inside, as I smashed a light fitting last night in the lounge room.

I guess itís the laptop on the garden table for me.

Great work!
