Replace Audio Track in DVD
Time

So, I want to replace the main stereo audio track from the LOTR DVD’s with a stereo track with unused score mixed back in, how would I go about doing that without quality loss? (Darkened image etc.)

Use David Bowie’s line in Labyrinth “Nothing Tra la la!?” during Han and Leia’s argument in the Ewok village (after Leia says “nothing” obviously).

I’m just curious, when you rip the music, do you adjust volume levels? I ask because I’ve noticed, in my own project (not related to Star Wars), that the music volume tends to fluctuate depending on if there’s someone talking or if there’s some other sound. And if you do adjust the volume levels, is there some kind of consensus on how this should be done? Like how do you differentiate between a section that has been turned down in the editing room and a section that was intended by the composer to be quieter? Or is it just done by ear?

I do it by Ear, I probably get it wrong most times, but I am usually satisfied with the results.

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series

THAT final theme. Just Wow.

It should be used in edits of ROTS.

From the first viewing (should I say hearing), I can’t get out of my head that if I was the one to name it, I’d say that score should be called “Will of the Force”. Again, it’s tragic, but its sober and heroic, all at once. It has (difficult to express in a non native language) some kind of solemnity that makes it very fit for grand events which are determined by Fate.

ROTS should end on that note. Not as it stands now with QuiGonn’s funeral theme grieving on Anakin’s decissions as if those decissions had been truly his, but more with a sense of “these things happened because they were meant to be from the very beginning. This is how cards unfold”. I guess this angle was chosen on rebels exactly because we knew what inevitably was going to happen with Ahsoka, and the music sort of supports perfectly that very concept of greek tragedy, unavoidable fate has come to be for master and apprentice.

From a certain point of view, that should be the spirit of Anakin’s journey.

Filoni should be in charge of a Star Wars movie, preferentely featuring Anakin Skywalker. He has proven to be worthy of that more than anyone close to Star Wars in recent times. He has what it takes to redeem the character.

Just saw this, that is an arrangement of Ahsoka’s theme, called “It’s Over Now”

Evidence of TFA Changes in Blu-ray?

GrizzlyAdams said:

So there’s the album end credits (obviously just an edit for listening purposes).

Actually that is the cue as written and recorded, the FYC version just tracks a bit of music from March of the Resistance, if you compare that section of the Album and FYC tracks and the March track, you can hear the differences and similarities.

The film uses the longer Concert Version of Rey’s Theme and Scherzo for X-Wings, the theatrical used the FYC version of the end credits cue.

And a third thought: the poster strikes me as very photoshopy. I wonder if perhaps they painted the elements and composited them digitally. I'm not a graphic artist by any means, so I'm just wondering. I have been avoiding spoilers, but I am very curious why Luke is missing from it!

 Probably, as if you notice, that they slightly rearranged things between the Portrait and Landscape versions.

THE FORCE AWAKENS (Episode VII) Discussion *SPOILER THREAD* See OP For Trailer/Teaser Links--Trailer is out!
Time

"Innovation, which is changing one's mindset, could be a very good value for science and economy but it's not necessarily for cinema, or drama, or music, or architecture. However it could be, supposing you can actually develop your innovative concept to a point when it paralels the effects and complexity of the previous way of thinking or paradigma.

You can relate this fascination with what's new even to the juvenile praising of plot-twists and the poor JJ Abraham's Mistery Box. There are whole studios (and viewers) that base their enjoyment of a movie (which, given a certain quality, could reach the level of being called a film) solely on the fact of being as ignorant as possible of the story. To these viewers the supposition of knowing the details of the plot would "spoil" the entire spectacle because their highest value is surprise, and because, to them the sense of fun lies in being dissoriented by the sudden rearrangement of plot-facts and questions instead of the traditional (+2000 years of history of art) extasis produced by overwhelming knowledge.

Traditional storytelling presents you a trouble, and, if the resource is used at all, Deus ex Machina helps you suddenly solve the puzzle thus generating pleasure by knowledge; even ESB works this way and even today Nolan is the Master of DeM IMHO (used this way). Nowadays is the other way round, DeM only helps bring more questions, and it gives pleasure by not knowing.

This is a different paradigma, and I'm not saying I'm against it because cinema has proven to produce great films using this plot-structure. On the other hand, mankind has proven to produce great art along history not using surprise as a value element at all. Take Aedipus and you know exactly how it is going to end, and it doesn't diminish it as a drama, and there are lots of good greek tragedies, and bad ones as well. Or take Les Miserables. Or even take any movie of Paolo Sorrentino (in my opinion the best film maker working these days); take for instance The Great Beauty: there are absolutely no big plot-twists, no innovations whatsoever and still the basic premise is developed brillantly, visually, musically and in the script as well; that movie in particular doesn't even have a plot other than presenting creatively the contradictions of life itself."
