If you happen to be into STAR WARS (and don't lie, you are), then this post is for you. A follow-up to my recent blog on the status of Patrick Read Johnson's film 5-25-77, word has come down that Nick Gillard, the sword-wielding badass that trained the actors of the STAR WARS Prequels, is offering up a 'PERSONAL 90-MINUTE ONE-TO-ONE LIGHTSABER FIGHTING LESSON' in an auction to help with the cost of the 30-day road trip that's set to begin this Friday, and be documented in HEARTS OF DORKNESS: A FILMMAKERS JOURNEY. Are you ready to learn from the proper Jedi (or Sith) master?
Bidding starts at $1000.00 and ends on Friday, May 25, 2012 - the 35th Anniversary of the day that STAR WARS first hit screens across the country.

P.S. - Not convinced that Gillard is a badass stunt coordinator based on STAR WARS alone? Check this out:
