    Mar 6, 2008, 6:43 AM - Seven Jedi Costumes #1

    Been lurking for awhile, but wanted to show you what Ive been working on for the past few years.
    JHM Productions presents

    Currently filming , in Honolulu, Hawaii.
    Based on the characters and films of Akira Kurosawa and George Lucas, Our tribute to the great filmmakers of the sci-fi, action genres,who inspired me to follow my dreams to a galaxy, far, far, away…

    [Story Synopsis]
    Taking place ten years after the events of Episode 3-Revenge of the Sith.
    After episode 3 ended, we know that all Jedi are extinct by the time of episode 4, and opens the door to our story, for these seven characters that survived the purge, so our characters will be new ones I have written and will focus on their fight against evil forces (not imperial, till the end at least).

    Our story focuses on a gifted young girl and her mysterious father as they set out on a quest to find warriors to defend their planet from the invading marauder army. The marauder's pillage and purge the peaceful villages, reigning terror and destruction in their path. Lead by a mysterious dark warrior who instills fear in the eyes of all who encounter him.
    On their quest to find those that will defend them, they come across an assortment of characters, which turn out to be Jedi in hiding. So they gather others in hiding who will fight. They come to aide the people,training them and building defenses as they get ready for the final battle against the marauders army, but their paths will soon collide with an even more terrifying threat…

    Here are some pics of the various characters in costumes made my myself and and my bestest friend in the whole wide world my Mom(she passed away earlier this year) R.I.P.
    Also a few screengrabs to give you an idea of the look and feel we will have for this film. Those of you familiar with the Original Kurosawa classic will note the attention to detail we emphasized on the re-imaging of this classic with our jedi counterparts..

    Comparison shot of the original "Shichinin no Samurai" (Seven Samurai)

    Looks like it could be a fun update to an incredible film (oh yeah, and don't forget the other great remake - The Magnificent Seven, another favorite ).

    I love what I'm seeing.. I can't wait to see how this project turns out.
    I always wanted to see a Star Wars homage to the Seven Samurai (my second favorite film).



    I wonder if the villagers will have lightsabers and crap collected from Jedi on the Run..

    Ditto above. The Pacific Islander with the Maul-style saber looks like an asskicker.

    Oooooo this all looks very cool - I look forwad to more updates, and the final product.

    I'm always amused at how Jedi who are supposedly in hiding always walk around in their Jedi robes

    (that's not a shot at your production, Obi-Wan and Yoda did it too)

    Very nice! I particularly like the varied cast and the look of the costumes--traditional Star Wars, but with a real-world, lived-in look as well!

    I'm interested in viewing the trailer as well; is there a possibility of this eventually becoming available on dvd?

    You mean these bad boys?



    these are some early shots of them after we welded them together, made of 6061 T651 aluminum rod and tubing, they were slightly bent then joined,
    Have to take some current pics of them weathered and with the greeblies.
    they were a concept i had after watching the Chronicles of Riddick.



    Heres one a fan made with the purple blades.

    Wow, this is all really impressive. I really like the design of the Rinko character, I might have to make a custom Jedi costume with sleeveless tunic. Maybe toward the end of next year when my arms are a good size.

    One of the very first Star Wars comics after the ANH adaptation was a Seven Samurai homage with Han and Chewie rounding up 5 mercenaries to save a village of farmers on a planet from marauders. The Mifune character was a delusional wannabe Jedi knight named Don Wan Quixote.
    The 7 help teh villagers fight off the marauders. Some interesting characters in that issue including a gunslinging 6 foot tall green talking bunny named (Jumping) Jax.
    STDS9 of course did 'The Magnificent Ferengi' and of course the Kurosawa SAMURAI SEVEN anime which is a sci fi take.

    Much mahalo for your aloha and support, its comments like that that makes all the hard work pay off,
    Yes i remember that one comic, "Eight for Aduba-3" of Marvel comics,
    i still have i somewhere when i initially wrote the screenplay,
    I know about the other Seven Jedi project, the creator actually contacted me and he abandoned his project and wanted to collaborate on ours.
