All good but I’ve been working on these for two years. I wouldn’t come in here with crap - I’m pretty confident these are VERY good - I wouldn’t do that people. I don’t think anything else can be fixed story wise in my edits (that I can do, I didn’t get paid for this). Editing previously time, scored and edited footage is not not easy. It’s hard to get in and out of scenes like you’d like too - so I’m confident in them. Others may look prettier lol but I’m just concentrating on the story. I know it’s along haul - 9 movies - but I hope it’s worth it. You have to watch them all, that’s the thing. I tried to make that way (again, hopefully).
We’ve heard this kind of confidence time and time again. Occasionally it’s backed up by the actual product, but most of the time it’s just empty boasting, and that is revealed quite quickly.
If you want more than four people to see it, you should also consider submitting at fanedit.org. We’re reasonably strict on quality control, and have a community (The Academy) whose job it is to review for quality and accept or reject to the site based on quality. So if it’s good, that’s a good way to prove it…and increase your audience.
Lol I’m old, my hips, my back and my knees are shot so I got some spare time lol BUT I did this cuz I wanted too. Cuz I love the films and no one should have to sit through bad ones. That’s not boasting - I want better for everyone. I’m not out to prove how good I am or any b.s. like that. They’re not perfect but the story is all that should matter. I did the best I could with oldish equipment. I’m poor lol, sorry.
So WHAT does QUALITY mean? Is every cut and dub perfectly done what matters or that the movies are actually FUN? I thought the phantom edits were crap so that’s where I stand - my pickiness - those where NO WHERE near good enough. The whole saga is in flames…
Look at the Exorcist III DC… Ive waited forever for it. FINALLY saw it was released and watched it this year. They didn’t even bother to put the black bars over 4:3 footage or anything…just cuts in aspect ratio, quality and even color and black n freakin white! This from an actual studio released blu ray. So…what is quality? That blu ray was pure laziness but I still watched it. I should combine the two - cuz much like Superman II BOTH versions are incomplete without footage form the other - to fix that… But I digress - I still watched it and it wasn’t the end of the world. The extra scenes that connected it to part 1, the music, the mood, THE STORY…all that kept me pretty glued so I don’t know what to say to things like ‘quality’. I watched old wrestling ppvs in black n white scrambled up back in the day lol…just sat there listening more or less.
So if quality means it’s a good watch then I might submit it but if people aren’t gonna let themselves be sucked in and really give a crap about ALL the films and the big picture then it’s useless to me. I don’t a give shit about anyone’s opinion on anything technical - I used a free copy of PD to make this - their wipes are SHIT and I know it (that really pissed me off that I couldn’t do the same wipes but again - technical b.s.) so get over it. If I failed either anis story or luke’s story (or even rey and jynn) then let me know…that’s what I’m concerned about. I want the entire thing to feel like that moment in TFA when she gets the saber. When the music slowly kicks in after it flies by Kylo’s face. That little moment is star wars gold right there.
So who’s to say what’s quality and what’s nitpicking? …well ME. That’s why I await comments. Oh and two more people asked for links 😛 So there! LOL A little chill that runs up your back.
😃 Thanks to those two btw, ya’all are awesome.
P.S. If I sound like a nutjob sometimes I apologize. I’m on lyrica, morphine and cortizone shots so I can walk… I also smoke weed for my chronic knee pain, etc etc…so I’m a lil doped up sometimes lol, FYI
Thanks, I just don’t want to come off as rude to anyone - it’s so hard nowadays without typing a 😃 or 😉 besid everything you write.
