STAR WARS: Episode I - THE ANCIENT LORE [Episode I Remade /Proj started: 2014]
Time

FROM FANEDIT.ORG:

As for The Ancient Lore in and out of itself, all the narrative hard parts are DONE! Things are finally working out, and the main things left to do are rotoscoping, sound effects and color grading (tweaking). This means I’m about 80% finished I guess, and with some math from when I first started this - that means I might have this ready by the end of the summer or autumn.

But that doesn’t calculate all the things that will most likely screw up during rendering - because there ALWAYS is something. Frame overlap, or a color grade that didn’t fit as thought - or a porn video overlapping during the rendering (wait, what?). Who knows!

Does anyone even remotely know what more could be done to help TPM/TAL by this point? Are there any suggestions left? Ideas? I hardly think I will revisit this again, at least not from a narrative standpoint, so it feels like now or never.

Also, I really, really, really want to show some video previews, but then again; I think I’ve showed you guys so much already that if I show more, the surprises might fall short. I think I won’t release anything of great importance anymore up until release, unless - of course - I really feel like I need feedback on something, or something is really, really requested. I don’t know. I like to keep surprises. It makes the viewing experience more entertaining. More fresh.

I will however pick two-three people before a release to preview the full product, to be able to fix things that might have been overlooked or could need some tweaking. Or maybe even simply doesn’t work! >:O But don’t you dare say that, because by that point I won’t give a shit! I will be a firm believer!

Very nice, though I should recommend a different colour Mace’s saber. Seeing as he seems to be a very combat dominant Jedi, perhaps give him blue or yellow. Blue means that he is just combatative, less of a scholar, and yellow meets in the middle

He’ll have blue in EP II.

This edit looks very intriguing, the dark tone isn’t something one would typically expect from a Star Wars movie but it only makes this edit more unique (so many TPM edits now). Though I do think you went a tad overboard with the darkness in some places, for example the conference room scene where Gunray talks about genocide. It does nothing except add darkness, and after a while it started feeling like a Holocaust reenactment. Also Ric Olie says something right before the Dokou scene, I would cut this because it doesn’t add much and was so fast it made me go back to comprehend what everyone was saying.

The dark tone really makes you appreciate how editing can affect the film’s tone. When you compare this to Frink’s The Ridiculous Menace it’s unrecognizable. I’ve seen comparisons like these for other movies, but for something as heavily edited as TPM it’s very nice to see a fresh take.

Cheers, brother. The very dark grade is something that is only on the preview video. It’ll be different in the final product, and so will much of the grading.

I really cherish your positive feedback. Thank you so much! I agree on the Ric Ollie line. It might be a little hard to hear. I’ll try to improve it, or remove it all along.

I’ve read that Nicholas Hooper got inspired by Williams’ score but I can’t remember him reusing any of the old themes other than Hedwig’s theme and the quidditch music from PoA. Hooper’s scores are my favourite ones, so I’m glad that you put some of it into the other movies.

Then he probably was more inspired of the actual tone and sound of his score, rather than the musical cues. I really loved Hooper’s score for HBP, but I found the score for OotP very, very boring and unimaginative, with few exceptions being Sirius’ new theme (but why the f*ck would you even make a new theme when you have A Window to the Past!).

Here is a list of a few songs that would work in both of these and Half-Blood Prince

Thank you for those suggestions. Some of them, maybe to your surprise, are already even in use. The original score of SS-CoS has a stamp on both OotP and HBP.

[OotP UPDATE: Opening]
So this is the rough cut of the opening five minutes of the Order of the Phoenix.

Things to note:

  • Opening color graded, to remove strong, unnatural blue nightsky and settle for a more natural blue nightsky.
  • New SFX.
  • Opening music altered to reveal Sirius and Harry’s Theme from PoA - which the movie is all about, before transitioning into the (now darker) HP theme.
  • Private Drive opening to continue our adventure where our previous one ended - the death of Cedric Diggory, and to set the dark tone for the movie to come. Opening extended 45 seconds.
  • Transition into original opening sky through Private Drive window.
  • Some color grading to the scenery, toned down a little bit of the strong sun colors. Very minor.
  • Added a short, musical score from SS/PS to when Harry pulls his wand at Dudley.
  • Added short, musical cues from Dementor’s Converge soundtrack (from PoA) when storm occurs. I want to keep the scene going with a thriller-y and sound driven atmosphere like in the original, so few cues occur and then disappear for musical continuity reasons with the Dementors.
  • Created Storm Clouds with Dementors from behind, to build up suspense.
  • Color Graded Underground sequence to look even filthier.
  • Extended Underground sequence (6 seconds) to continue building atmosphere and suspense.
  • A lot of musical cues and new SFX.
  • Added back in the Dementor SFX’s from PoA, especially the ones when they are groaning (before attacking) and the one where they are sucking the soul out of people, for continuity reasons.
  • Added Harry’s Patronous theme for continuity reasons, although I created my own, darker version to fit the darker tone of the movie.

Truth be told, the scene at the staircase never really worked for me.

But why? Line delivery? Behaviour? I’m eager to know.

Does anyone else find this scene bad?

Well, the scene played out a little weak to me. I guess a little more could’ve been added to that short moment before Harry leaves. Plus, a rather unnecessary mention of Hogwarts’ restriction of underage wizardry.

I completely understand if you feel you want to leave this scene in. It’s only my suggestion.

Hmm, interesting. I’m not against you, but I’m not sure I’m entirely with you either. I like the scene - I think it creates some extra tension and show some character growth, standing up for himself, and also depicts all the emotions coming with puberty.

I agree with you that it’s short - perhaps a bit redundant, and I can’t help but feel that a lot of stuff was left on the cutting room floor.

Completely understood.

Also, I believe you said you’ll be adding a few deleted scenes to the film. Care to enlighten?

All the ones there are, with the help of JJPotter’s amazing restructure of them.

Maybe for PoA, after Harry looks at the picture, you could cut immediately to him outside, preparing to leave Little Whinging and his encounter with the Knight Bus. 😃

Hmm, interesting thought. Would you care to elaborate why? Is it because he threathens Vernon with a wand before he leaves? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

ChainsawAsh said:

Is it in any way possible to add in some form of explanation for the Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs nicknames to PoA?

I’m guessing the answer is no and that’s just a pipe dream of mine, but a man can dream…

I am very open for suggestions, as I’ve been thinking about this a lot myself. I would really like for a way to get this through to the audience, but how… absolutely not sure. We could have a dream sequence or something, or perhaps when the Dementors suck both Harry and Sirius’s souls near the end Harry shares memories with Sirius in some sort of nightmare sequence where their nicknames are said out loud to the footage of their faces.

Some of you may be familiar with my Revisited Harry Potter franchise, with the completed work being Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets and Goblet of Fire revisited.

Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix are the next one to go for the same treatment, Prisoner of Azkaban being held off until after work finished on Goblet of Fire due to PoA being less of a struggle, and easier to edit. The movie is pretty perfect as is, and will only get minor changes to fix continuity and some musical alterations.

With that being said, what I want from you guys is to get suggestions for Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix; things you’d like to see done, things you’d like to see removed, and suggestions in general.

Let’s remaster the magic!

I’ve not see a single review that says “TLJ is unpredictable and original and that’s why it’s bad.” or anything that equates to that.

I’m not responding to any review? Where did I say that? I’m adressing the common argument and opinion shared by the people in here that did not like the movie.

It still baffles me how people fault the movie for unpredictability and originality when that is the only way to interestingly move forward.

The fans got predictability and stability in The Force Awakens simply to gradually grow the franchise back into its roots, and Then The Last Jedi to grow it forward. Then yet some people can’t grasp the concept of storytelling, character evolution and originality - so they fault the director for it, rather than their own nostalgic expectations.

I don’t like TFA - but I respect it, I understand it, and I understand the decisions made by director and company both to make it the safe and predictable way they did. This is probably why I also loved The Last Jedi - because I don’t like to live in the past and clinge to it, I like to move forward and evolve. And that is what THE LAST JEDI did and was all about.

Thank you.

If you weren’t on your seat during the throne room scene with Snoke - and after his death, or the Luke Skywalker ending, then you are bound to be disappointed for everything coming your way in IX, Han Solo, Obi-Wan etc.

I’ll never understand the people that are on their seat in a Marvel movie with hardly any casualties, but in a Star Wars movie where people die like flies and suspense is continuously building, they exclaim “I was never on the edge of my seat”. Were you intoxicated during your screening? Did you have a one-night stand right after that made you forget? Were you attacked? Like how were you not on your edge?

I didn’t like TFA, nor Rey, Finn or Poe in particular, but TLJ made me fear for them and some of their choices and what would come of them. And I was always on the edge of my seat.
