So we've had several votes come in already. If you haven't voted, I think I'd like it by Sunday morning so I can tally everything on a day off from school and work.
Still not much happening at the other forum. I hope it was a good idea (it wasn't mine). It feels like a lot of the energy was sapped from this thread, which is of course to be expected when ideas are being solidified and everyone has a real life. I just hope it doesn't die. I'd really like to see this thing through.
So I may have secured a digital copy of the Star Wars Interactive Video Board Game movie. The plot, it turns out, revolves around the DSII prior to Endor, and the DSII had a functioning superlaser and was going to destroy some Rebel planet. It gets sabotaged and leaves it in the state we see it in ROTJ. This is why I don't give a crap about most EU anymore, because even silly storylines that clearly conflict with the OT are made into some level of canon. But what I like about it is the fact that David Prowse was filmed aboard a Death Star set and James Earl Jones recorded new lines for it. I have no idea what one sees or what is said, but maybe even a little something could be useful. I'm sure the video quality isn't great, being taken from a VHS, but who knows? The audio could be a treasure trove, however, as the movie is an hour long.
This made me wonder if there is other potentially useful audio just waiting to be exploited. The first thought that came to me was from the Holiday Special where Vader and Bast are chatting. "I want the Rebels located and identified [a pause long enough for a natural cut] if it means searching every household in the system." Possibly useful, though I wouldn't know where to put it. But I wonder if there are other Jones as Vader recordings that could be useful, or even recordings of other actors. If the lines are short, we may find something close to what we were planning, such as Mark Hamill saying he needed to do some "thinking." If you guys can think of any potential sources, let us know."
Probably can only use the audio but might be some good lines in there?
There is not much left to Ponder at the momment, alot has been fleshed out on here already... Although there will be another wave soon I guess.
I am on a steep learning curve trying to learn basic after effects stuff at the momment but I got it working and gradually picking up tricks and trying stuff out.
