Very cool mockups Snooker!

What does Geonosis being a junk planet add to the story, if I may ask?

I think that ‘Junk desert’ is more interesting than ‘Gross bug desert’. It also gives me an excuse for the planned opening (Republic ship flies over ‘chased’ by Federation battleship inspired by this lovely mockup: https://youtu.be/48cc5nvsZ_c)
It could also be used to imply that the Separatists are powerful enough to have their own fleet in Episode III because of the scavenged junk. The idea that the Separatists are a proto Rebellion is strengthened by making them sort of ‘rag-tag’.

Did it take a lot of time to do that? I feel it could be a great asset for others.

It took like 20 minutes. I’ll definitely upload a hi-res version of that scene for others to use.

You know, you also could have the Death Star hologram appear in the middle of the meeting room during the scene where Dooku speaks with the Separatist leaders, if you wanted to find ways to give the plans more screentime.

That is a wonderful idea!

I feel like Anakin and Padmé’s relationship being forbidden is important for the story, but I understand why you might want to remove that idea.

George’s attempt at ‘Romeo and Juliet’ falls completely flat on it’s face in my eyes, so keeping it seems silly. If I edit the whole thing and find it doesn’t work, I’ll put it back in.

Continue to share stuff with us, man! Looking cool.

Thank you!

EDIT: Have you tried making the hologram red like the original? I like it how you have it too but it might look good that way as well and fit more with the red flash after he closes the hologram.

I wanted to keep it white to match up with the plans in Rogue One/Episode IV. I didn’t change the red flash at the end because I thought it would be too much work for when I was making it (I was sleepy!). The flash will definitely be changed.

That clip’s not red enough to be of Geonosis.

Geonosis is so red it’s gross. I’m definitely toning it down.

JEDIT: The Dooku Death Star shot is supposed to be the end of the first scene (including the walk to the conference room ‘I want senator Amidala dead!’ ‘Don’t worry, I’m a man of my word’ , which would wipe into the first assassination attempt. Alien subtitles are everything!
