represents a genuine revolution in Internet broadcasting. Similar in application to a public-access cable channel, CountdownTV broadcasts a combination of live and prepared video content from a variety of sources. Where this particular service differs is twofold. Firstly, CountdownTV is, obviously, utilising online video streaming technology to better facilitate its distribution than traditional cable. Secondly, and most interestingly, it centres solely around one topic - Star Wars: Episode I. Featuring real and fake commercials, fan films, skits and news reports, interspersed with line coverage and interviews with those camping out for tickets. For those who haven't managed to score tickets for the first screening of Lucas' film, CountdownTV could provide all the butterflies-in-your-stomach anticipation you need to pull you through May 19th.

Just to give you an indication of what you are in for when visiting this site - his film's, entitled Kung Fu Kenobi's Big Adventure, Godzilla Versus Disco Lando and Quentin Tarantino's Star Wars, feature hand puppets, lego sets, jerky motion and vintage action figures in a variety of awkward positions. Where the production values fall somewhat short of those endorsed by ILM, though, Evan impresses with slick dialogue and redeeming ingenuity. Evan's eye for timing and composition is clear in the quality fan-films, all of which are hilarious and utterly compelling. The films are available for download in both Quicktime and RealVideo formats.

In this particular section, they present just that - a Star Wars parody (actually created in 1997) aimed at holding you over until May's big day of judgement. Entitled Troops, this wildly popular parody short by Kevin Rubio (available in Quicktime format) promises an hilarious blend of Star Wars and Cops.
