Star Wars Lightsaber Rotoscope

Way back in 2006 I got the bright idea to try and rotoscope a Star Wars lightsaber blade onto live footage of myself waving a microphone stand around. Using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere I drew a glowing lightsaber blade on every individual frame of film. It took roughly 1 million hours of painstaking work made tolerable only by the gallons of beer I drank during the process. I can’t imagine what the poor souls at Industrial Light and Magic must endure doing this for an entire feature length film.
