Has there been any progress on this? I was thinking it might be cool to have the Google translate be narrated with the Darth Vader voice with the original playing. Can anyone do a good Darth Vader voice? (I don't think I can.)

I have no idea. My friend's in Italy right now but I may try and get over to his family's sometime and pick it up, otherwise we'll try and get the last couple scenes off when he gets back. If we can't, maybe other people on this could fill in the blanks. This is this site for Star Wars fan edits, after all.

I kind of doubt it. The 4% speedup PAL causes would have made synchronizing the soundtrack to the official DVD video problematic for the youtube clips.

Most of the Asian bootlegs I've encountered seem to be NTSC though.

reason i asked because of marioxbs exellecnt subtitle pack thing which needs an NTSC disc 

http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Backstroke-of-the-West-with-retail-DVD-quality-FINISHED-amp-FULLY-WORKING-DOWNLOAD-HERE/topic/4861/

the plan would be to use the untouched ntsc 2.0 audio and drop in audio from the clips

add the modified audio to the dvd

use marioxbs subtitle kit

instant backstroke dvd

You mean like JUDGE DREDD? Or maybe find someone who sounds like Morgan Freeman (?)

Also keep in mind that REVENGE OF THE SITH is already out in HD (720p) on download sites like TehParadox.com, and all one needs is a good audio file and then use MKVmerge to add the BACKSTROKE OF THE WEST audio with the REVENGE OF THE SITH 720p MKV file.

And I would be all for a James Earl Jones narrator saying the translated scroll while the original scrolled on past.  The STAR WAR(S) might be changeable, but the opening line (A Long Time Ago...) would be easier to change.

Watching subtitles for a crawl is really weird.

Just watched some of this on YouTube, and they REALLY need to redo Palpatine and Yoda, as they sound either like a STAR TREK nerd or a 10 year old boy.

We don't even know who actually dubbed this version of the movie! And if any of the voices were replaced, then it wouldn't be a preservation...

Two months without an update is a little discouraging. :(

Sorry! Been so busy! And my friend is back at law school, so... we'll try and take one more look during the next break. I know how many people want the "DO NOT WANT" scene.

Speakin' of,

Anybody want to make this one? We know the translation.

 

Do not want.... DO NOT WANT!

If no one wants to do it, that's also fine. I should be getting together with my friend soon- next week or 2.

Monroville: what's a Star Trek nerd, I mean isn't that kind of "pot to kettle" on a Star Wars fan fiction site? I don't have to look to far into these topics to be thinking "nerd." Is there a Star Wars vs. Star Trek nerd thread somewhere?

Well, the idea is not to make a distinction between ST and SW nerds, but to simply comment that the voicing of Yoda sounds like "a" nerd or 10 year old girl... as in it does not sound at all like Yoda.

I understand the voices can't be perfect, but considering the effort put into Padme, Obi-Wan, Anakin and the rest (which are pretty spot on to sounding close to almost exactly like the original actors) it just seems strange that the 2 one would think would be easier to immitate (the Emperor and Yoda) are by far the weakest voices on the dub.

Looks like some people find Yoda funnier this way. 


Comments from Part 8:

I don't think people should have such high hopes for the voice acting of yoda in a reverse translated version of a movie. I think the voice adds? to the absurdity, making this already lulzy video even better.

As an impression, the Yoda voice doesn't match the film. But that's fine - the key thing here is whether? the intonation stands up on its own. There's a reason that Frank Oz pulls in the big bucks. I was initially surprised by the Yoda voice, but I think it works fine.

I tend to agree it doesn't really matter if it sounds like the original guy. Yoda sounds even more pathetic and diminutive this way, which makes it more funny. As far as the emporer, isn't that what he actually sounds like? (Except maybe not as British.) And no offense, but "Poochy the Dog says: "Kids, always engage in political debate... TO THE EXTREME!!" sounds, uh... kind of nerdy. Glass houses.


Wow, 1300 views yesterday, this is kinda taking off! It could go sub-viral.


Does anyone know how to load a (home, private, legal) copy of Episode 3 into Vegas 7 without the first VOB file totally corrupting? That's one of the reasons it took so long to post some of those early parts, the video played about twice as fast as the audio and had to be streched out. I ask, because it's never going to look right if we're just guestimating how it synchs up.

Dusty old SIMPSON quotes aside, I can say that, as a nerd, I speak with experience on what is nerdy.

And I can't say I agree with any of that... to me, the whole point is hearing people doing voice work that, apart from Yoda and the Emperor, are doing a very good job emulating the actors they are dubbing, which to me is what makes it funny.  If you're going to go the route of having Yoda not sound like Yoda, why bother with sounding like the other actors?

Having Yoda sound like a young girl is something a random dude with a camcorder making a $100 horror movie would do.. it just comes across as too easy to do.  Or I guess to put it another way, it's something Jimmy Fallon would do.

I would either go the goofy route with all of them, or have all of them sound like their original selves as much as possible.

But, to quote someone far more famous than me: that's just me, I could be wrong.

Ha! This is the first I heard about this.. I think I'll try to make another "kit" like I did the last time. Would I need to download all the YouTube clips to get all the audio?

You know, you could always get Red Letter Media to do your Palpatine dubbing... he does a really good Emperor.

I sent Red Letter Media an email a while ago but have not heard back. Do they just send you recordings, or how does that work?

Good news, and bad news:

The good: we were able to get Scene 16, and this weird trailer. (Told ya we'd eventually get to it.) Now if we can only get the big finale scene at the end which has the "Do Not Want."

The bad: Scene 16 is blocked on You Tube. Is it me, or is You Tube starting to suck these days? Way more commercials and junk, it's like having to swat a mosquito every time you want to watch something. Maybe it's been that way for a while. Anyway I have no idea what to do about that but would be happy to present it elsewhere. At least you can watch the trailer "Hero's Ground Rebeled."

Youtube has gone from suck to blow. If I ever upload another video, I'm probably going to go to vimeo instead. Or even megavideo.

Was that disc I sent you of any help with the video sync problem?

Right now I'm more concerned with getting the rest of it off and up-loaded. And I guess, finding a new place for part 16. Maybe I'll throw that trailer in its place, and then post a link on that page to a vimeo or megavideo, then most of the movie would be together.

As for working with the whole movie, we were able to rip a complete sound file of the movie, but unfortunately it contains no voices.

I'll pester RedLetterMedia on the Emp and Yoda voice work.  I wouldn't think he'd have an issue with giving some quality voice work to movies making fun of the Prequels, considering his glowing reviews of them.

OK- then when they send me the voices, I guess you just lay them over the top of the original and turn the sound down. That shouldn't be too hard. It is a good impression.

Don't you dare redub Mr. Speaker! He's my favorite character in the whole movie! I love his voice--slightly smarmy, slightly goofy--it's perfect for this version. I don't care if he doesn't sound exactly like McDiarmid!

The current guy's great line readings are the first to come to mind when I think of BACKSTROKE! I love 'em!

Author

Well, I guess I won't do that then! That's cool, personally I also like the voice, besides I'm not sure I would know how to do this anyway, or if the Red Letter Media guy would even want to. 

It seems that as this is in the public domain, there's no reason Monroville can't replace the voice himself once he has the voice clips from the Red Letter guy. Then there will be 2 versions. The more the merrier.
