The space shots in ROTJ i count is 64.
The cockpit shots i count(including the close ups of any bridge but not the far shots) is 58.
This count excludes any hangar shot and any death star interior chase. Also ignores what happens in the throne room. Only when we see ships in space in various backgrounds.
I also noticed that for 85% there is a space shot-cockpit shot-space shot-cockpit shot.
That count only can show us a nice amount of work that the movie already needs before go and add more shots.
have that in mind how many more shots of space should you consider adding?
Any thoughts of braking that bond of cockpit/space shot? Will it look odd?
Its good to start talking measuring and counting shots so we can have a better view of what is going on and what is most or less possible of doing.
#1. Return of the Jedi: Endor Is Screwed
How It Ended:
The Rebel Alliance and their fish-headed commander defeat the Imperial fleet, Darth Vader redeems himself by saving his son, Luke, and killing the Emperor and the second Death Star is destroyed by Billy Dee Williams. The Empire is effectively dissolved (keep that Expanded Universe bullshit the hell out of our faces), and a new era of peace is ushered in throughout the galaxy.
The Horrific Aftermath:
What happens when billions of tons of metal go supernova while orbiting just beyond a planet's atmosphere? The answer is the Endor Holocaust, the complete destruction of all life on that tiny Ewok-filled moon.
According to Dr. Curtis Saxton, an astrophysicist who apparently gets just as bored as we do, the destruction of the second Death Star by Lando Calrissian and Wedge Antilles should have left the forest moon of Endor "a depopulated wasteland." And he's thought this through: Dr. Saxon's analysis is so exhaustive that he takes into account everything from the radioactivity of the Death Star's reactor core to the progress of the independent contractors' work. All his findings point to certain doom for the Ewoks and whatever else is living there.
Saxon even suggests that the damage could be enough to dramatically alter the chemistry of the air and the water in a "nuclear winter" effect, causing mass extinction of all life on the moon. Essentially, the celebration we see at the end of the film would be like having a ticker-tape parade for the end of World War II through the streets of Hiroshima.
Not something new as an idea. Still fun to bring it back
