I LOVE LOVE LOVE so many of the ideas in this edit. I was watching it this morning and even though I enjoyed the original film and was very familiar with it, most of the edits were seamless. My only feedback would be:
- It is a little awkward to not know whats going on with the Resistance since we spend all of our time with Rey and Luke
- in the first throne room scene the Pretorian Guards ignite their vibro weapons, but if we’re doing lightsabers they should be ignited as lightsabers.
- Why not extend the first skype phone call with Rey and Kylo using the whole scene, but use HAL9000’s edit of that scene to take out the caretakers, that scene just abruptly ended.
- the lightsabers are kinda weird sometimes because throughout the various throne room scenes you see their blades, it might be too much to ask but erasing the blades would help to the lightsaber believability. RIght after snoke dies I can see that most of the blades were taken out so the the ignited lightsabers could take their place. And also we have no idea how the red curtain caught on fire (which isnt a HUGE deal)
- The cut from exploded ship to hux standing over kylo is actually really jarring since we know he wasn’t even close to there a second ago. Maybe just a short scene of the destroyed hanger but leave finn and rose out of any of the shots. Just a “heres the damage” shot would help
- I love the new color especially on crait
- Its implied that finn pulls away with the rest of the group but you can stil see his trail going straight for the canon. Maybe a small vfx change just having the red line curve
8)also the green lightsaber looks amazing
I wish there was someway to add somesort of story to intercut all the rey and luke stuff with. As the edit stands I really like it, but we leave the resistance for like and hour and then go back and their on transports, I dont know if there is anything you can do for that considering this edits purpose. All that aside though, as is, great edit dude
