Stream of the Month - November

All things Jedi By Stephen Schleicher
This week the Stream of the Week returns in a whole new way. Instead of focusing on an individual streaming site, we'll pick a theme for the month and point you to sites that have streaming content related to the theme.

The hype and marketing has already begun on the next installment of the Star Wars story. As the release date approaches, fan-boys across the galaxy are sure to be looking for as much information as they can.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones Teaser TrailerThe first trailer for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, was released recently, and the Apple QuickTime Trailers site has it for all to see. "Breathing" is available in several streaming bit rates depending on your connection. But be warned, in order to get the uber-version of this trailer, youíll have to have QuickTime Pro installed.

theforce.net fan filmsIf the trailer isnít enough, you will definitely want to check out the fan based theforce.net website. Not only does this site contain tid-bits of gossip and actual news about what is going on in the Jedi-verse, they have a huge section devoted to fan films. This growing site showcases work by some very talented (and not so talented) fans of Lucasí work, and youíre able to see all of them via your computer. If Troops and Dual ring a bell, then youíll find them on this site.

TFN DigitalIf watching fan films and reading the latest gossip isnít enough, TFN also offers a twice monthly newscast that is a must see for fans and professionals alike as it shows how good quality productions can be made on a limited budget.

For the official word on all things Jedi, you must visit StarWars.com. The LucasFilm, Ltd. marketing juggernaut goes all out on this site with official photos and behind the scenes production notes on the making of the new film. The must see streams for this site are the mini-documentaries that George Lucas has authorized to be made. Lucas did the same thing with Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and these streams a perfect for fans and movie buffs alike to get a look at what goes into making a major motion picture. Currently up to installment seven, there are plenty of features to keep you occupied for a while.
