*** Azeem has set the topic on channel #FanFilms to Tonight's guests are the creators of the film PA Wars.
Azeem: I would like to welcome our guests tonight...creators of the hilarious PA Wars. Guys, here's your chance to talk to the fans who have loved your film.
Azeem: Go ahead PA..some opening words
PA: We've been overwhelmed by the response. Thanks guys and gals
threedee: you earned it
Zayn_Angel: *2nds that*
Han_Duet: oh yeah
PA: we didn't even know if we should send it in
threedee: what! the horror
PA: Palpitadd was especially doubtful. after we saw the visual effects of the other shorts we were scared
lo||i: I thought the fight scene was pretty cool, especially when Palp got stuck in the door.. anyway, why didn't you guys rotoscope the sabers?
PA: no time. 75 hours each - people seem to like no rotoscoping
Azeem: PA..when you are done with an answer..give me an END
Han_Duet: What was the restraining bolt prop made out of?
PA: oh yeah...top of the darth maul candy container and a script brad
PA: end sorry dude
darkatx: oh...what will be the sequels movie length
PA: we're thinking about 5 minutes...end
Subject_Ze: why did you decide to use a Taco Bell Yoda cup? Was it a comic choice or you guys just went, "Damn, we need a Yoda!" and that was the only one you could find?
PA: we thought of course it would be funny, but really we had no budget, so frank oz was not available...end
Zayn_Angel: question: how did you do that little 'force running' effect at the end?
PA: super-imposed and then sped up the shot...and then ran real fast...end
threedee: ok, well you know when Sponikan walks into Qui-Stay's office with the coffee, what's that first line he says? I never understood it :)
PA: "hey, hey, qui-stay, you save me a bagel or what?"...end
BigChris: How long did it take you to shoot the hole thing?
PA: one week of shooting over eight months time...we're sick...end
anrev: how many more films are you going to make?
PA: the sequel--duel of the fakes--then who knows?
darkatx: LOL...all this END stuff is killing me....were there any injuries on the set during the lightsabre duel?
PA: oh yeah, give me a second... qui-stay-gon got jabbed in the eye by palpitadd. Spone scraped the hell out of his knee. we all got whacked in the face multiple times...end
PA: oh yeah, we went through at least 5 qui-gon sabers and three cameras
Subject_Ze: How did you come up with such a strange plot?
PA: we lived it ,baby...end
Bryan868: Will the Yoda taco bell cup be back for EpisodeII? It was hilarious!
PA: maybe yoda will fight this time..end
The_Scream: Where was PA filmed? WHos poor office did u take over and say "we're makin this movie thing, we need to have fights in here, so can ya clear out?" We had to fight to get a maccas for 20 mins...
PA: we fought in our hollywood office. we shot a lot after working hours, but plenty during...we can't really say what show due to obvious reasons...end
Azeem: My turn - okay guys, what's with the boy humping the dog in the background??? Didn't think we'd catch that
PA: ooookay...not intentional...not intentional...it was a cardboard cutout for the show, but yeah, it is obscene...end
Azeem: Eric found it...I'll let everyone else have to find it for themselves...an easter egg in the film
PA: if you look really close you can see the name of the show hidden in the background...anyone notice it...end

PA: wait until part 2-- you will see fighting like never before...i swear...end
Azeem: with you guys...i can believe that
threedee: when Qui-Stay slashes yoda and Spone yells "noo" his voice sounds altered...
