TFA Edit – Finn Saves Rey
Time


Please don’t confuse processing for rudeness or indifference. A video is easy to glance at, but digesting your posts, which are quite lengthy, and responding to them requires time.

Now that I’ve had the time to see, read and analyze I have a response.

Honestly it didn’t work for me. The idea feels too inferential. We’d need to see and/or hear more. Interesting idea though.

I’d love to see what you do with Bala-tik. He’s probably my least favorite character in the entire movie. I couldn’t come up with an idea on how to transition from the falcon to Snoke smoothly. He’ll be going in v2 of my edit if possible.

Thanks NeverarGreat! It was difficult to make this with the source material. I’m hoping now that I’ve got it out there that people with the technical prowess to add his helmet to the interrogation scenes will come of out the woodwork and help polish this project.

Remeber though, the ambiguity of the Force is why we all love the Original Trilogy. I just assume that she learned it when she probed Ren’s mind. I also assume she was driven by the dark side, or heard Vader’s voice about giving into hatred to destroy Ren. I tried the overdub and really liked it, but it was too on the nose.
I look at it as she learned on the job. The very first force user learned the same way. If she is who I think she may be, it would make perfect sense.

In short, I think saying or showing too much is not the way to go.

Just my 2¢

The pacing of the scenes feels too conflicting. It worked in ROTJ because the dialogue of the Emperor was describing the action we were seeing. These are disconnected and feel like they are competing, imho.

I liked the concept behind the video. The visuals of the first Star Destroyer shot and the second one would need to have the same clouds, but other than that it flowed quite well.

I watched the Snap scene and found it a little confusing visually. The first time through my eyes told me the old man was speaking, then the second time my eyes told me it was Han. as far as the mix, it seems like the voice is a little too upfront and needs a longer fade in and fade out to make it more seamless. Not sure this line is needed though, but I’m sure there is a logical reason 😛

Well, it took for what seemed like forever to compelte with life and school and hiccups along the way, but it’s finally all done. Let me know if you’re interested. 😃

Thanks to everyone who has helped, inspired, or supported in any way. This one is for you 😃

Rogue One: The Battle of Scarif Fanedit
Time

I totally agree with you. I was super excited when I heard he was taking over, but what we got was not his best. I hope they keep him for future films and allow him to have the time necessary to develop his trademark variations of our favorite themes. His Star Trek theme variation is one of my favorites. I mostly was disappointed with his Rogue One theme. I know it’s a variation of Luke’s hero theme, but it just feels off and almost amateur compared to his other stuff. It’s also used at odd times in the movie. The battle stuff was fine enough for me, it just needed a flare of the force theme or hints of the cues you used in your edit.

Hmmm…I think I actually prefer Giacchino’s score during the battle. The only part I didn’t care for in the original was the Rogue One cue when the Star Destroyers collide. Just my 2 cents

I’ve always had a hard time with Artoo’s character in this movie. I appreciate NeverarGreat’s approach of slightly modifying and retaining. I took the cutting approach and reworked Artoo subtly into scenes to just make him awake the entire time.

I know this version is all about accuracy, so are you planning to address scenes that have been horizontally flipped or the wrong hands used/contradicting placements? There are a fair amount of them.

I’m making some changes like that in my personal version that will be released later. Is there a list or something? I don’t know all of them.

No official list that I know of, but a few particular ones are the doctor’s hand when checking Chewbacca, Rey hiding from the Stormtroopers on Starkiller Base, the placement of characters when they are running up in the snow and Han introduces the idea to use the explosives, and Rey pointing on the Falcon and asking Finn to giver her an item. There are a few others, but I’d have to go look at the movie again.

…But I would love to see a version of this edit where Kylo wasn’t blatantly called out as Han’s son so early in the film. I feel it’s more powerful to be left at the end, just before the SKB fires.

I think there’s another edit that does this. For my own edit I was at least planning to remove direct mentions of the fact but you would still figure it out from Han and Leias conversations before the end.

My edit keeps his helmet on and parentage a mystery until the catwalk scene. Sorry, Hal, shameless plug 😉

I’ve been using some John Williams War of the Worlds cues in my TFA edit and I think that soundtrack would be a great source for Rogue One. I’ll probably end up using it in my own edit in the near future.

• Hopefully fix a few instances where Kylo is talking to Snoke and his helmet is on where it should be off.

Which scene(s) do you need? I have the shot where Hux walks away infront of Kylo after Snoke tells him to make preparations, but with his helmet rotoscoped on.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time

I get the idea here, but there are a couple of issues that need to be resolved for this to work. First, Scariff and Tatooine require some travel time. We need to perhaps see the Tantive IV in hyperspace. If someone could superimpose the tantive IV and a star destroyer over the Enterprise being shot at in warp by the Vengeance (ST:ID) that would help with the transition between the two planets. Second, the visuals are just too crisp in Rogue One. If this is an intended edit, the RO footage needs A LOT of grading to simulate a 70’s era film.

Are you referring to the Rogue One audio? If so, where did you get the audio from? This hasn’t been released?
