Like every fan who can claim they are geeked on the Star Wars franchise, I have seen my fair share of Star Wars fan films featuring lightsaber duels that can rival even that of the New Trilogy. Way back during the release of Revenge of the Sith we made sure to point out a couple of our favorites and give reasons on why they were worth watching.
Now that Sith is long behind us we had figured there wouldn't be any Star Wars updates unless it had something to do with the upcoming television series. However, I was recently alerted to a kid named Ryan Wieber who, with his own video camera, created some fan clips that were so good LucasArts figured they had to have him.

Ryan Wieber currently has his own website where you can watch his videos, learn about his upcoming projects, and hear details of his time over at LucasArts.
Though hearing about what it takes to squeeze yourself next to Lucas is cool, the best thing to come out of the site is a great five-minute skit titled "Ryan Wieber vs. Michael 'Dorkman' Scott". The clip is an endless lightsaber duel that shows off some cool homemade effects that look more than legit.
I figured for those of you who were bored at work or at school, this five-minute clip could serve as a great way to pass the time.
You can check out the clip "Ryan vs. Dorkman" over at Google Video.
