a word from the director

[Matthew Beall] A Word from Matthew Beall
Director of "WOOKIEE"

Well, here it is, our latest music video parody. Since Jabba on the Dais, we got tons of requests, but we decided to do another one anyway! Seriously, Wookie was originally conceptualized by myself. Petch miraculously wrote the lyrics in the 'Nookie' style, and I edited matching video clips and added a few additional shots to complete the parody. Writing the lyrics was difficult, as 'Nookie' is crap and has no known rhythmic style in this galaxy. However, with the rhyming 'wookie/nookie' gauntlet slapping us in our face, Petch rose to the challenge and (after a few beers) performed beautifully.

I used Sound Forge to take out the voices, a DPS Perception to digitize the footage, Razor to edit the final sequence, and 3D Studio MAX 3.1 to do the (few) effects shots. In any Return of the Jedi shots, you may notice a small glitch in the center. That is video dropout where my tapes are starting to wear out from too much scanning/playing during digitizing (I digitized just over one hours worth of footage to complete Wookie). The effects shots are simple: an all CG opening, a shot of Chewie with black eyes (a'la Limp Bizkit), and a composite of the Millenium Falcon dumping spice. Other than that, it's the same footage we've all seen for 20+ years (much like Jabba on the Dais). At the end is a short addition with Petch being startled on Endor by the Rebel forces, and myself just doing something stupid. Enjoy!

Finally, I'd like to say thank you to all the fans who have sent us e-mail for Jabba on the Dais. We were literally stunned at the numbers who have downloaded and enjoyed it, and hope this latest release is up to par. To maintain our level of quality we strive for (and you seem to appreciate), we used our familiar 'letterbox' format (which we will always do).
