Are You Creating a Star Wars Fan Film Video?

I admit it. I’m a Star Wars Fanboy. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. I collected Star Wars memorabilia throughout my childhood. When I got an email from Alex the other day, I had to check it out. It’s a Freeware app for Mac OS X that will allow you to generate your own title sequence for your own Star Wars fan work. Maybe you’re doing a Brickfilm, or a Star Wars fan film. This is going to be the easiest way you’ll be able to generate the imagry for it. Star Wars Title Sequence Generator (or simply SWTSG) is simple to use, and creates excellent looking finished products for you.

SWTSG is a free Mac app that will help you to easily generate the visual portion of the Star Wars title sequence.

So you’re making a Star Wars fanfilm, and you want that authentic-looking, opening yellow text scroll? Plus all the other nice frills that go along with it?

You’ve googled the internet for tutorials that show you how to do those things, but it seemed like a lot of hard work, using expensive software packages that you didn’t want to buy? And even then the results were a little bit less-than-authentic looking?

At ease, my fellow Jedi! The Force is with you. The search for your movie’s opening is over: with the SWTSG app you can make a super-authentic looking opening sequence, super easy.

I triple-dog-dare you to find anything on any operating system that is so easy to use, and fun. Even if you don’t like Star Wars, you have to admit that this is really cool. I’m so happy that this was passed along to me. You can even check out the tutorial if you do happen to need any help.

Keep sending me your recommendations for cool apps and websites to check out. I have a great time playing with and testing everything, and love passing on the good ones to all of you.
