Thanks to everyone who voted and got me frontpage/daily 1st!

Newcomers to Transitions please watch the trailer (on my 'other work by' link).

Here we are, after a month of on-off work on the first episode (cos i have a job too-saving for uni) it's finally here. I hope that it measures up to at least some of the expectations the fans of the trailer had, but most of all i hope everyone enjoys it.

This episode is predominantly parody with some action at the end, a little something for everyone. Please take it with a pinch of salt it is not meant to be offensive in any way.

Please leave constructive criticism if you have any!

Finally, thanks to everyone who took part and helped to make this possible. J

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Surprisingly good

I was worried when I saw the trailor but the movie came out well it seems.
The graphics shows your unique style with a mix in of clone wars from cartoon network.
The animation wasn't stellar but good enough. Things were moving abit slow like the lightsaber battles.
The sounds were good but I was unable to interpret what they said sometimes.
The humour is okay not cheesy just okay, could be better.

My gripes were the fact that there was no dismemberment in the lightsaber battles. That is a must in my opinion.

Good work anyway lad

thanks for the comments man, there was some dismemberment! A arm flew of fin the pitch black scene! however this wasnt an action episode -= the next one is - expect more of what YOU want then. I'm sorry you thought the sabres moved to slowly but this was ment to be more artistic and stylised than a fast paced furious saber fest. remember jedi werent always as frantic as darth maul (who's a sith i know) etc. this was more graceful. Anyway - thanks again for your thoughts. I'm pleased you thoguth it stood up to the trailer!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Been looking forward to this since the trailer!

This is one of the best flashes I've seen lately. I thought the trailer was excellent, so naturally I was looking forward to the full movie. I wasn't disappointed with any aspect of this movie, except maybe length, but we can't have everything...

Graphics: I love this style. A few little thinks stood out to me, like the use of anime-styled people in some parts of this, such as the Twi'lek hooker scene. The effects were well done, and I loved the smoothnes of the animation. Be very proud of yourself.

Style: You get extra points for things like the lightsaber effects and the smoothness of the animation and special effects. Although a few more ships in the opening battle wouldn't have hurt, though (what's that doing in "style"?).

Sound: Star Wars music is always great ^_^ The voices were cool, the sound effects were very good, so overall, very nice! One thing I feel could be improved is the fuzziness of some of the voices, like in the start, and when Darth Vader starts talking. But still very good.

Violence: I'm watching the fight scene as I write this. It just occured to me how nicely animated that part was. A little lightsaber dismsmberment here and there wouldn't have hurt though. I liked the use of "Ace of Spades" for the "main fight", it just seems proper, somehow. I liked the movements of the jedi and the clone troopers. Hoping for some lightsaber duels in the next one!

Interactivity: It's a movie. M-O-V-I-E. Not a game.

Humor: I liked some of the little details you put into this, such as Mace's *bling*bling* to name one. The Darth Vader custom shop scene was good, too. I thought this was one of the funnier Star Wars movies I've seen, so yeah. The Twi'lek hooker scene was really cool, too. Very good job!

Overall, you get 9. It had it all... graphics, sound, violence, humor and style. I left interactivity out for obvious reasons :p
In fact, the only thing dragging this down was the length, and once the series is complete, that won't even be a problem anymore.

Looking forward to the next installment!

its in depth reviews like this that really help. thanks for the time you spent collecting your thoughts, i'm very pleased you enjoyed it and felt it lived up to the trailers hype. That means alot to me. the next episode will feature full on full episode combat with not only clones but the sith warrior as well. However, you'll have to wait for that...
