Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Prolonged Reveal)
Time

Haven’t posted in here in some time. New computer, new term, new amounts of no time to edit 😃

I did manage to throw this together though. I’ve never thought it a good choice to have Poe just show up during the Resistance X-Wing scene on Takodana, so I took him out. I utilized an unused scene from the trailers, rearranged other scenes that were removed when Poe flies around blasting Ties and added a bunch of sound fx to blend it together.

Here’s the video of the cut: https://vimeo.com/200529290

TFA: A Gentle Restructure
Time

^interestingly enough, most of my sound editing I do directly in Sony Vegas. I’ve tried acid (the Sony program) and it just feels like Vegas. If I’m doing heavy processing with program specific plug ins I go audacity, but honestly most everything can be done in Vegas. I did some work for an editor over at fanedit.org and would be willing to help out if you give me time stamps of dialogue.

^good ideas. So the Star Destroyer is the one blowing up the transport in this idea? It still is kind of odd to me though. The shots of the incoming squadrons imply surprise attack. Doesn’t make sense that the Destroyer would be the one blowing up the transport. Ruins the element of surprise. That’s why I thought it might be best to have the ties do it. They could do this off screen and fly through the debris as you’ve suggested. Then it’s more of an ambush and full on assault.

Just an idea for this current focus. I’ve watched the eyes of the characters and they require some distant image as is produced, but I was wondering if you could add ties blowing up other ships. This is a destination like Mos Eisley. It would be believable that there would be air traffic going on. What if what they are looking at is the Star Destroyer and a fleet of ties blowing up some transport(s). This would validate their reactions and possibly smooth over the scene. You could even add laser blasts to the ties that are flying over Rey. Just a thought.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I don’t think these edits are near the quality of other options avaible.

I think your forgetting all those other people who don’t prefer drastic changes. Remeber that a large majority of people loved TFA even with its rehashed moments. It’s all about familiarity. Most people want some thing that is familiar, but new. Drastically changing narratives can have a worse impact on many viewers.

The Force Awakens Fan Edit Ideas - ** SPOILERS **
Time

^Sounds like we have very similar ideas. I’d be interested in seeing your draft. What are your extensive changes to Rey’s vision? What is the source of your Hux speech queue? I used some music from The Force Unleashed. I thought I had all the available Force Awakens queues. I’m unaware of an alternate for Hux’s speech.

Return of the Jedi - Remastered
Time

Watched your ending celebration edit on vimeo and have some feedback for you. The audio editing was pretty abrupt to my ears. I’d recommend trying to use the soundtrack and start the music later with a fade in. You’ll need to produce your own crowd noise effects, but it will sound better. Also, I thought I saw part of another scene as the wipe transition happened.

To be honest, you posted during quite possibly the busiest time of year, and your posts are pretty lengthy. It’s on my read list, but I don’t have time right now *<:)

Get ready for &quot;Star Wars - Shroud of the Sith&quot;, a radical fan edit of &quot;The Phantom Menace&quot;

Why do people insist on just removing all the things they didn’t like.

Um, I’ve watched part of your edits and you’ve done the same thing…

Now, I haven’t seen this cut cuz I won’t watch anyone else’s but mine…

This is a very sad statement. Collaboration brings about innovation and fosters excellence. It also opens up closed minds to new perceptions and directions. I’d recommend learning from these amazing editors by watching and learning from them. Your own personal edits will improve if you do.

How ESB Emperor should look

No offense Spuf, but your post isn’t very clear and you have no examples. I’m assuming most people are fine with and waiting for Adywan’s version.

Ridiculous One: A Star Wars Story
Time

Insert a crawl, then have the rewind sound as it begins to come in and backtrack the crawl and start the film as it does in the original version.

Play Giacchino’s Star Trek theme when the Rouge one title card comes up.

Play Anakin’s “I hate sand” as the two are engulfed in the death star aftermath on the beach.

You could change the “along time ago…” card to say, “a ridiculously long time ago in a ridiculous galaxy ridiculously far far away…seriously…”
