Congrats on finally finishing this NeverarGreat! Very interested in seeing what colour choices you’ve made in certain scenes.
Do you have any plans to work on The Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi?
Looking at the whole thing put together after years of working on it piecemeal, I see nothing but problems and ‘almost there’ shots. I finally start to see what the film should look like, which makes any shot that doesn’t quite make it look terribly unfortunate in comparison. But the time comes when you have to abandon the work and release it.
After this is released, I’m planning on taking a long break from color correction. Hopefully there will be a good official release of the trilogy in the meantime (or another great fan project), but if that doesn’t happen then who knows, I may be back at it someday. 😉
I suppose that’s how Lucas felt when he looked at the OOT, particulary Star Wars: you see nothing but problems and ‘almost there’ shots. It’s kind of ironic, you start a project to essentially make the film more enjoyable to watch for yourself, and by the time you finish everyone enjoys it, except you.
