Hi Ender!  I will see about putting it up on myspleen and let you know in this thread if I am successful at doing so.

Best,

Hi,

I am the old user "Trooperman".  I have absolutely no problem with "Shroud of the Dark Side (2007) Workprint" being distributed wherever you want.  It is clear at this point that it will never be completed, because I have moved onto other things (like a dystopia film this summer all my own-see Off Topic).

I would love to talk more about my new project with you if you want, or answer any questions that you have.  It's good to be back!  And again, feel free to distribute my edit-I have a dual layer version that I can upload to youtube if nobody else does, but I don't know what the policy is...they may take it down pretty  quickly.

 If you upload to be streamed, i would suggest vimeo... Only be sure to speed the whole film up a frame so that copywrite detector won't catch it.

Great to see you again, TM. =)

Still my fav Ep. 2 edit.

Thanks a bunch! 

You know, I've been rethinking the dystopia project and realizing I don't really have the connections to do that at this point in my career..instead I was thinking I'd keep writing some classical music. 

Maybe once I have that written and recorded (I should have at least one thing recorded this year) I could post it here so you could see what Trooperman's been up to creatively....

this seemed as though it was a really ambitious project. i would love to see the work print.

 It was basically a remake of the movie that happened to have the same actors in it.  The tone was completely different.  You'll see once you get a copy of the film.

I tried to upload the workprint to myspleen, but I get an error message every time.  Is there anyone out there with a copy of the workprint in dual-layer that could do this for me?  Unfortunately I'm pretty sure I'm the only one.

Is there another service that's easier to use than myspleen?  I really want to get this out to you guys.  It's the least I can do to thank you for hanging with the project for so long.

by workprint you mean you didn't complete it or it's a work in progress?

I mean a complete cut of the film was finished in 2007, but it was very unpolished.

I've ended the project (for one thing, the software used to edit it has been having glitches, and I'm not entirely sure where all the files are).  I'm also trying to branch out and put my limited time and energy into something original.

But never say never. When I get a good editing system in place again, and with the rough cut as reference, who knows...I could put something together very similar to the rough cut.  But that's a decision I have not made, and realistically, probably will not make unless there's some other factor I haven't considered yet.

And neither does my old signature picture.  It used to be a picture of Jar-Jar in an Emperor's cloak.  Combined with the caption, it used to be funny.

EDIT: (before Episode III came out and it was revealed that the Emperor was not Jar-Jar)

Since this may take awhile to get worked out, does anyone have a DVD-5 that they can put up in the meantime?

PM sent.

Also, the link in Trooperman's signature is working now.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

It looks like Erik has been kind enough to put the DVD-5 up on Myspleen, but it needs seeders.

It looks like it has 0 seeders and 4 leechers; I don't know what that means in practical terms to get it to work.
