Ryan Wieber

The ‘Ryan’ of famous fan video ‘Ryan vs. Dorkman’. Wieber is a professional compositer for Stargate Digital. In 2003, he teamed up with ‘Dorkman’ to create a lightsaber duel fan film that was exceptional in the professional quality of the visual effects. The video became an internet sensation, and Wieber followed it up with a number of other fan films. Though I really like fan culture – and this video is really incredible – I don’t want to include Wieber. I don’t think he’s particularly admirable or anything. He’s a gifted visual effects artist, but I don’t feel compelled to include him for any other reason.
