The movie itself works surprisingly well. I’m impressed.
I like the higher contrast, but I think it may be a little too high. Especially in lighter shots, it looks really overexposed. I’d tone it down a little. However, the reds look really beautiful. I love Palpatine’s lightsaber. I also love how the blue lightsabers look like blue lightsabers, and not the shitty indigo lightsabers normally in the movie.
I’d do more wipes, less straight cuts, especially in places like between Anakin and Padme at their pad and Obi-Wan leaving for Utapau.
Technically, the video seems kinda laggy. I paused the movie and saw what looks like the blur the GOUT has. That usually happens by artificially changing the framerate, but the framerate was never changed. The file’s huge (for an hour long movie, but some shots look a little compressed.
Additionally, if you’re gonna make a second version, I recommend you render it as 1920x816, not 1920x1080. There’s black bars on the side that don’t do anything but take up data and space (and I can’t crop it because VLC is being a jerk tonight).
Still, though, it’s really well-edited, and the scenes used are really well thought out. Good work!
The Empire did nothing wrong
