Suggestions for the New Forum
Time

Okay, I’m fairly new to this website so I’m not going to presume to know anything, but this forum is quite strange to view on a desktop. I’ve been on lots of different forums on the Internet over the years, vBulletin, XenForo, ProBoards, etc. and this one looks nothing like them. It doesn’t seem to be made for desktops in the sense that you can view a maximum of like 2 posts at a time, everything is really spaced out, the buttons are very big, and there’s not a lot of the information density one expects for desktop websites. It also doesn’t seem to have a bunch of the features you find on other forums (I see they’re requested here).

So I guess my question really is is there a particular reason this host/style was chosen?

Thanks for the interest guys. I’m just plugging a couple of plot holes that popped up, then I’ll send it to each of you.

Star Wars: The Anakin Saga
Time

Hello all, I’m a long time lurker and wanted to share my first fan-edit with you all. It’s a project called Star Wars: The Anakin Saga and it’s a somewhat radical remix of the prequels that seeks to integrate them into the OT. Dual timelines is a film technique that has been used in many movies and TV shows (most recently Westworld) and I’ve employed it here to create a new version of the OT that concurrently tells the story of the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker.

As evident from the name, my edit of the PT focuses solely on Anakin, how he’s found, his relationship with Padme and Palpatine and his fall to the dark side. Most of the politics and the machinations of Palpatine’s rise to power are cut out, as are most of the battles and endless CGI wankery. I have also done my best to improve the PT dialogue with careful audio editing.

Though I’ve kept the minimum amount needed from the PT to coherently tell Anakin’s story, the resulting films are still fairly long, though within feature film length. I’ve just finished the first of my planned edits, blending episode I into episode IV, and it clocks at around 2 hours, 40 minutes, though the next two will be longer.

Although most of the cutting has been to the PT, my edits are based on the 2011 Blu-Ray SEs, so I’ve also removed some of the more appalling SE special effects and changes using Harmy’s edit (except where I felt they didn’t detract from the scene e.g. vehicles and ships). A potentially controversial aspect will my replacement of some of the OT’s dated special effects (mainly things blowing up) with effects poached from other SW or sci-fi films, as I wanted less of a disconnect between the TPM and ANH scenes.

As this is my first project, I’m looking for beta-testers and feedback before I release it to the public, specifically on any glaring technical errors, any plot-holes or narrative issues and feedback on any other stylistic choice. Let me know if you’re interested. Thanks!
