JourneyQuest: Dark Sword Awakens

The last 24 hours have been interesting. With facebook introducing the lightsaber meme for everyone's profile picture, I thought it would be fun to have Perf holding Kylo Ren's...

"Gods, I've missed violence!" - Sword of Fighting

When I posted this to my facebook page it brought up an un-anticipated dialog...

So, I pulled the JourneyQuest episode Douggie mentioned (JQ1 ep.5) and enlisting the power of fiverr to hire grizzlyharris to do the f/x. BOY HOWDY! did he do an amazing job, with a super quick turnaround. It was less than seven hours between when he accepted it at 9pm and when he sent the final version (at 4:10am)

To flesh it out I used:
  • Camtasia2 for all my video/audio editing,
  • The Crawl Creator at (using Camtasia2 to screen capture the video, the sound was dreadful but I was cutting that out anyway),
  • Photoshop CS6 for the title, intro, and credit boards, and
  • The JQ1 soundtrack performed by Steve Wolbrecht.

I hope you enjoy it and May the Farce be with You! --LMG

P.S. Thanks to Douggie Sharpe (The Potato Pope) for putting the idea into the universe, and Christian Doyle for wishing it to be a thing. grizzlyharris for the quick turn-around, and not least -- Jeremy Spray and Kathy Digby who jumped in for moral support.
