Ryan vs. Dorkman - Your Everyday Lightsaber Battle

Ryan vs. Dorkman, created by Ryan Wieber and Michael Scott, two effects artists who had a friendly rivalry on a Star Wars forum, leads the two friends into an intense lightsaber battle complete with, of course, lightsabers, but in addition, invisible wires, "the force", and lots of good camera work.

It's a fairly old example, but is an interesting look into what exactly was possible 7 or 8 years ago. We've come so far in such a short time, and it's amazing what was considered 'amazing' back then is now commonplace today. There's also a sequel!

The sequel not only incorporates better lightsaber effects, but introduces film-quality camera work and better pacing! The addition of better music and sound effects placement only makes this sequel better, and the production values certainly do show.
