Here is a clip of Watto’s introduction with the new music. An old version of this was on my YouTube channel, but this has been properly mixed, and both Anakin’s and Padme’s voices have been pitch-adjusted to close the age gap a bit. Anakin’s has been deepened slightly, while Padme’s is a bit higher. I tried to make it as natural sounding as possible. Jar-Jar’s voice has been omitted for this clip.
I had also attempted to post the first 10 minutes of the final edit, but I apparently hit my vimeo limit. I may try to compress it to fit, but regardless, by next Tuesday, you’ll see what I’ve been up to with the new music cues (well, old music cues from the 70s repurposed for this) and voices.
Anyway, as far as my absence goes, it began as a voluntary hiatus from the project, as it was getting so tedious I began neglected other things. And then due to a literal force of nature, the edit had to go on the back burner until the time was right to make my dramatic reemergence. I hoped I wasn’t totally forgotten here, so I’m glad to see that there’s still interest in the project. I’m going to do my best to deliver. I am alive, I promise.
