Video: Arrow Jedi

As a classic super hero story, Arrow is very easy to mash-up with other properties, such as Star Wars, another series with a classic Campbellian hero's journey.  Just check it out.
"After seeing this fight sequence in Episode 219 of "Arrow", I thought it would look pretty nifty as a lightsaber duel. So here it is! Lots of other Star Wars references (blasters, mouse droids, Ewoks, and even an appearance from a famous droid at the end).

The WhaBam (LucasFilm) logo was made in Illustrator and After Effects with Video Copilot's Element 3D and Optical Flares. The title crawl was made in Adobe Illustrator and After Effects. The Earth and sun were created using Element 3D and Optical Flares. The lightsabers were made from Video Copilot's free plug-in. I added some color highlights in some scenes and used Optical Flares as well. The mouse droid is a 3D model rendered in Element 3D and R2D2 was rendered in Cinema 4D Lite and composited into the scene. "

"The follow-up to my first Arrow Jedi video. This one is a lightsaber duel between Thea Queen and Malcolm Merlyn from the 'Corto Maltese' Arrow Season 3 episode. See if you can spot or hear some Star Wars easter eggs."

"This is the final installment of my Arrow Jedi trilogy. For this one, I added lightsabers to two battle sequences from the Arrow Season 3 mid-season finale. The first features Ra's al Ghul against eight lightsaber-wielding members of the League of Assassins. The second is the epic battle between Oliver Queen and Ra's al Ghul on the mountaintop. As always, there are plenty of Star Wars easter eggs."
