The Concept Art of “Odyssey: A Star Wars Story”: NHC – April 29, 2018

Hi there, Nerfherders! Did you know there are actually *two* Star Wars movies coming out on May 25? We all know about “Solo”, but there’s also “Odyssey”: a Kickstarter-funded fan film about a Rebel recon mission gone horribly wrong. Produced in part as a student project by filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art & Design, we sit down with concept and production artist James Rinere to discuss the process, the production, and the technology behind this ambitious fan film.

“The Force Awakens” vs. “The Last Jedi” with Dark Vader of Galactic Empire: NHC – February 4, 2018

Wilkommen, Nerfherders! Are you enjoying our new theme music? Of course you are. The band who recorded it, Galactic Empire, is about to kick off a new tour. We get Dark Vader on the show to talk about hitting the road with Mac Sabbath, recording their upcoming album, and our main topic for this week: comparing “The Last Jedi” to its predecessor, “The Force Awakens”. Two very different movies, two very different approaches, two very different fan reactions. Which comes out on top? Well, that depends on how you approach the topic!

What’s Wrong with the Prequels, The Force Awakens, and Rebels! NHC – November 5, 2017

It’s our 50th episode! We’ve got our buddy Nick Ammons joining us on this one, sparring with JT about most topics.

NHC: February 26, 2017 – NHC vs. “The People vs. George Lucas”

This time around on the Nerfherder Council, we take on the controversial documentary “The People vs. George Lucas”. Is the creator of Star Wars deserving of all the criticism thrown his way, or are his contributions to a galaxy far, far away enough to warrant fans’ unwavering respect? Jon of course sides with Mr. Lucas, and has plenty to say on the subject!

Salutations, Nerfherders! This time around, we turn the mics on Brad Weatherholt and Kyle Brodeur, the creators of a new documentary called “The Prequels Strike Back”. Is it possible that George Lucas was telling a smarter story than anyone gave him credit for? Tune in to hear about the movie that explores that very question – and download “The Prequels Strike Back” starting September 14th!

NHC: August 14, 2016 – 3D Star Wars and Greatest Characters

Did you tune in to our live stream last Wednesday? Well, this isn’t that show. This is an all-NEW show recorded *this* week instead. Aren’t you thrilled?!
