I’ve been doing some work on this over last few days.
Been looking at some re-framing, especially in this conversation between Luke and uncle Owen.
I’d also like some editing advice with regards to small time skips.
I have a section that I want to cut out and it results in a time skip of 5 seconds. I have artoo trundling towards Luke and Threepio, then I cut Threepio being mean to Artoo, and the next bit is Artoo trundling alongside Threepio. I have used an edge wipe transition to indicate slight passage of time, but it still feels like a jump cut. if I slow the wipe then it will feel like too much time has passed. I can render that short clip if necessary.
This section, the conversation between Luke and uncle Owen, I have reframed a lot of the shots to accentuate when the characters are forward thinking, being introspective, being blind to the other’s needs etc. I feel it makes the scene more interesting, but I would value some feedback.
