I spend the last week finishing my attempt at an fast paced Opening for TPM.
Key plot points are:

-new status quo at the beginning of the movie: The Trade Federation isn’t even in the picture yet, the main conflict is the tension between the Gungan (Warriors) and the Naboo (Pacifist)*

-the Jedi are send to diffuse the situation

-The Trade Federation exploit the instability and invades the planet

-The Jedi save the queen and speed away

But see for yourself:

P.S.: * I think this set-up highlights on of the core dilemmas shaping the Jedi identity quite nicely, on the one hand they’re peaceful monks and on the other they practice cutting off peoples extremities or bisecting them.

EDIT: Almost forgot to mention that there are some quiet cracks with the audio (mainly during the Throne room scene), sorry for that, its a problem with my source, that I only discovered after it was basically finished.
