I’ve watched the first two episodes, and will try to watch the next two ASAP. I did have a few technical notes for episode 1 but Chade covered most of them, like the rogue frames and such. I will mention two things though:

During Yularen’s hologram convo with Yoda and Mace, the transition on Yularen’s face is weird. Did you reverse the shot at the end? I wonder if there is a better way to transition here. Could you possibly cut away after he says “Yes sir” in the wide shot? Do we really need that other information? Or maybe just hard cut straight into the battle.

I also noticed the whole Bail moment at the end as well. I wonder if that shot of Bail could be color-graded to better match the rest of the scene? And yeah, if a different effect could be used on that Anakin shot to slow it down, perhaps optical flow in Premiere, or maybe if could be played with in After Effects, could make the slow motion less noticeable. I understand why you’ve added this moment, though, since otherwise we get no resolution from Bail.

I don’t really have any notes for episode 2.

Anyway, just getting a taste of what you have so far gets me really excited about this project. The longer, more “focused” episodes makes the series feel more grand in scale, in terms of the overall narrative and how it fits into the Saga. I’m really digging it.
