Dark Side Rising was my working title, I just thought Rise of the Dark Side sounded more Star Warsy.
The latest movie focuses on Ventress’ story and includes the first part of Maul’s arc:
Witches of the Mist
The Cantina scenes from Bounty
The Scene from Revival in Palpatine’s Office as the closing scene.
Here is the new trailer as promised.
The full movie is almost complete.
Before Episode V is released I need to tweak the sound mix for Episode IV and make it available again to those who missed it.
Hope its worth the wait for you all.

Apologies for the massive break, a combination of things including a massive relocation, a new job, a Final Cut Pro update screwing up my audio channels and just losing the hunger after 4 episodes.
Anyway, the thirst is back and episode V is nearing completion. I’ve just reviewed a second completed cut and it’s looking close. I’ll have a trailer done in the next week.
For those that didn’t manage to download EPIV, I still need to review my edit, having corrected the audio channel issues. I will be releasing that before episode V, so there will be chance to catch up.
Thanks for your patience.
Another repeating scene;
1:33:45 and 1:03:29
I’m not sure if this was supposed to be intentional or not. They were edited differently so it’s possible you meant for them to be different but similar scenes. Either way, it took me out of it.
That was very intentional. Essentially one scene cut in half and used seperately. It was required in order to better link Mandalore and Geonosis. Not perfect, but it was the best I could do with the material.

I need to correct an audio channel issue on the BluRay so I took that down.
The 1080 is available. PM if needed.
I’m about halfway done with Episode IV, and so far I’ve encountered no major problems. I do have some minor complaints, though;
Obi-Wan’s reaction at 23:58 seems out of character and unreasonable
The shot at 1:13:20 was already used at 1:08:25
I’ll be sure to update if I come across any more.
I agree about Obi-Wan’s reaction, but that is how it was done in the actual series and it really needs to be in there to show how strong his feelings for Satine are.
Great catch on the reused shot! Not sure how I missed that one!
All sounds very reasonable. I’ll take a look at it when I get the chance. Thanks for your input.
The 1080 is fine and available. I need to sort out the surround sound channels for the Bluray.
Aaaarrgggghhhh. This is infuriating. It appears to have happened since I updated Final Cut Pro X. The only order the damn thing will export the surround sound in is L C R Ls Rs LFE.
Just a quick remark: you should ask someone to read your opening crawl next time 😃 (“seperatist”).
And it seems there is the same technical issue present on your other episodes, some kind of frame slow-down in speed for transitions wipes. I don’t know if it’s intentional or an editing issue (i.e. something you can’t correct).
edit: a little bit more important: I’m afraid you’ve made an error when you’ve imported the 5.1 audio track:
- channel 1 is front left
- channel 2 is front right
- channel 3 is center
- channel 4 is the basse (0.1)
- channel 5 is rear left
- channel 6 is rear right
I think you’ve interverted 2/3 and 4/5.
The frame slow down in some of the wipes is intentional. Its usually when I’m creating a transition between 2 separate stories. The cuts are often too abrupt, so I have to slow the speed down slightly to create a wipe.
As for the channels, I’ve just checked and you’re absolutely right.
I work with the standard channel set up in Final Cut Pro and I have the audiobars visible whilst editing, so they are definitely correct, however, Compressor has exported the channels in the L C R Ls Rs LFE order. How bizarre.
Thanks. I’ll be sure to post a proper review here (or on fanedit ?).
Thanks. A fanedit review would be much appreciated.
The EPIV BluRay is now done.
I have replied to all the PM’s I have been sent. However, I’ve had quite a few over the last 2 weeks. If anyone has not received a reply then please message me again and I’ll provide the links you need.
I have the vimeo stream link and a 1080 download ready. Bluray is rendering.
Episode IV is now done
Here finally is the trailer for episode IV.
Quick update on this. Life has been pretty busy the last few months but I’ve finally broken the back of this. Just need to manufacture 2 scenes to help link the 2 separate storylines together. The rest is done.
Here are a few clips
- Showing how I’ve cut out most of “Voyage of Temptation” to speed up the first act.
- This shows how I’ve intercut Duchess of Mandalore and Senate Spy
- Here I’ve intercut Legacy of Terror and Brain Invaders so that the 2 episodes occur simultaneously.
I’m now working on the trailer.
Thanks. I’ve improved the sound mix and uploaded the new version, but .info is yet to update.
I can message you the link if you want it.
Episode III seems to be going down well with everyone.
Episode IV is coming along nicely. The first half hour is complete, with the rest having had a full second cut.
Here is the opening sequence
No, it’s not up on .info yet. PM me your email if you want the 1080 or Bluray.

Was ‘despatched’ chosen intentionally or is it a typo for ‘dispatched’ in the Episode 3 crawl?
Episode III is now completed and available

Looking forward to it.
Any news on the BD for episode II?
BD is all done, just haven’t sent the DLC to .info yet! If you want it PM me your email.
I may go straight through with episode 4 as it’s mostly already done, but I’m going to be really busy at work for the next 9 months. Definitely taking a break after 4. Might do a Rebels movie!
Episode III almost completed now. Just pulling together one last line of manufactured dialogue. The poster is almost done too.
Here is the work so far, almost a shame to stick Cad Bane’s head in the way!
