Nah, these guys are for real. Friends of my sister. He's a genius with rotoscoping (the lightsabers). As I understand it these are essentially his audition pieces to get into the film industry. (not that I've watched this link yet, but I recognize the name and poster's name.)

I don't think the first one had nearly as many sfx. I especially liked the cutting into metal parts, and the lightsaber drag through water bit was pretty masterful.

Besides the effects, which are really incredible for amateurs, it's a well-orchestrated fight scene... even if I don't understand the point of pushing the lightsaber further in. I wish I could choreograph fight scenes.

That was quite impressive! Excellent effects and choreographing. Yeah, CV, I'm with you, don't quite get the pushing the lightsaber further in. . .unless it's that much hotter near the hilt?

I wondered about that too.

Truthfully, in my opinion, though I think it was wonderfully done overall, it's length hurts it. (shaddup, Peter!)

Concerning "pushing saber in", I think it was only to show off the effect. Probably works like the hypodermic needles used in movies, where the needle/blade moves up into the handle.
