so,watched.
first,there are jumps throu the whole movie.is hard to watch.
the vader scene from r1 should be shortend.only the view from front.the door you see in the background
don´t match the same we see later.
i think the cuts you made are to much.i like the scene in the sandcrawler.
the sc38 scene you do a good job with this.
and your deathstar explosion…i can live with this.
i´m not a friend of insert new scenes in this “old” movie.
i like more original scenes in but the tastes are different…😃
it´s your version and i think you do a good job if you satisfied.
thanks for the link.

Thank you, I like feedback.
-I thought I fixed the jumps? I will have to go back and check this again. Sorry about that!
-There are 2 doors in that shot. You see the one with the window close as the guy gets rammed with his saber. Then you cut to the 2nd door where you hear more screams and more of what is going on before the troops come in. That being said, if I hear this as a point of confusion from more people, I will likely go and fix this thew way you suggested.

  • I know that tastes are different. I wanted to pick up the pace a bit in the movie and felt that the Sandcrawler slowed us down at a point that we didn’t need it. We see plenty of what is going on. But that was my take on it. There is no right or wrong. I was only explaining what I was going for.
  • I am glad you enjoyed most of it anyway lol.

So I checked out ForceGhostRecon’s Version and honestly, he did a better job than I did on adding the R1 Vader into the opening of ANH. Some things I just didn’t think to do. I highly recommend watching his reimangined cut.

Version 3 is coming. I think I have a cool idea for adding the R1 footage of Vader to this.

I’m working about 55 hours a week at my real job, and working on an edit of TFA. So be a little more patient. The link to V2 is still available…

I’m definitely interested in checking out another way to incorporate R1 Vader footage!

It wasn’t easy because yours was freaking perfect! The lever being pulled and then cut to C3-PO was too good not to use in my version. But I’m working to make it different enough. There is only so much you can do to make it work.

Still working out the kinks in V3. I need to re-dub a line of dialog and then work on the score a bit. Then I will be able to get that out to you guys.

Thanks for all the support you guys have given me. My Last Jedi edit was the first time I really brought my work out to the public and you have all been great. With only that one movie out, you guys were backing me on this project right away and I can’t think you guys enough. I promise that the V3 is the edit that you deserve and that going forward, I will have nothing but high quality for you all!

OK, quick update on V3. I had a hard time finding the line I needed to re-dub a spot, so I recorded it myself. I then ran it through a few filters to smooth it out and fit with the rest of the audio. So now I’m working on the score and then she is done. Score takes me some time because I’m very picky about setting the right mood. Those who have seen my cut of TLJ know this.

I am currently in the process of uploading what I hope will be the final version of this cut. This time, nothing is dropped in and has been worked over to flow with the rest of the movie. I also added my own cut of the SC 38 footage. I will make a cut/change list and post it in the future.

On a personal note, I got a reminder that in a month, my annual subscription for my editing software is due. So that means that next month I will have been editing for 1 year. I have never done it before then. I was inspired by some fan edits of The Force Awakens. So I gave it a try and taught myself how to use the software and how to do different editing tricks. My edit; The Last Jedi: A Spark of Hope, was the result of everything I have learned up to this point.

I hope you will enjoy my work. Let me know what you all think, and yes I’m always open to constructive criticism. I don’t know everything and other people have great ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of.

I’m interested in checking it out as well. I saw the Vader vs Kenobi on the Death Star scene on youtube, and would love to see that cut in with the rest of the film.
