ILM Enters Stephen Colbert's Green Screen Lightsaber Contest

In case you don’t watch the show, Colbert made a challenge to A/V nerds everywhere to take footage of him on a green screen waving a lightsaber around and insert in cool backgrounds – sort of like the movies Sin City or Sky Captain. Plenty of good entries were sent in, with some even making it on his show. Well, if you were thinking of doing one you can pretty much give up now that Industrial Light & Magic has made an entry and put it online.

Yes, that ILM, the same one that does the effects for the actual Star Wars films.
