Here’s a test of the idea for showing a closeup of Anakin looking over the slaughter in the Temple. Please take a careful listen to the audio if you can, and let me know what you think.

I think the music should build to and then “land” on the shot of his face, to musically tie the shot of the temple together with the shot of Anakin, rather than starting a new chord at the close up that continues to the next shot. I imagine a dark ending chord, perhaps with a short swell just before the cut to Padmé where the music stops and shifts to something else.

And perhaps the shot of Anakin could be reversed so that he tilts his head up rather than down. I think that might look better considering that the shot before pans up, and that body language might also feel more like a “reaction” after looking at something rather than starting to look at something.
