As the others have pointed out, I’ve started posting video updates on my YouTube channel, with me sort of introducing each clip with an explanation of why I wanted to edit that particular clip, and my thought process in the editing itself. All of my Episode I clips from this edit will be uploaded there, as well as some clips from some of my other editing projects.

I’ll still be checking in here every now and then as the project progresses, but I feel like the video format is ideal for some of my ramblings, and I can sort of provide real-time commentary on the clips themselves.

Here is one of the newer clips I haven’t shared with you all here yet. I’ve basically removed the “chosen one” element from Anakin’s character arc, as well as the whole immaculate conception. With my edit, it’s sort of implied that his dad simply wasn’t in the picture. I go into more detail in the video, if you’d like to check it out:

Hopefully you enjoy it.

This is how I’m handling the infamous midichlorian scene (timestamped to skip me talking about everything most of you already know about why I’d want to edit this):

Basically, instead of Anakin asking about midichlorians and Qui-Gon giving his whole explanation about how he has microscopic organisms in his blood that channel the Force like radio waves, he just comforts Anakin’s confusion and tells him “when you learn to quiet your mind…you’ll hear the force.”

Looks and sounds excellent!

I really like it through ‘stay close to me and you’ll be safe’. It feels like that’s the end of the lecture to me. Maybe if you put the line about quieting the mind before the ‘stay close’ line it could work better, but I don’t think the last line about ‘time and training’ makes sense without Anakin responding.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

Okay, I’m going to touch up on the greens a bit.

While I’m at it, here’s a few clips from the edit you can check out.

Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrzwbqfCxMg (This was uploaded prior to the film grain addition. The colors have been tweaked since then, so don’t let this be an example of that. There’s also a weird cricket sound at around the 58 second mark. No idea what the hell that was or where it came from, so that’s also been removed. Basically, let this be an example of the cut of the scene)

Watto’s introduction - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9WZDA-5Oug (Again, this is a rudimentary version of this scene, pre-grain. The cut is essentially the final version, but the sound mixing isn’t complete, and Jar-Jar’s voice hasn’t been added to the scene. The music in this scene is what I’d like you to focus on)

Also, there is a version of a Darth Maul scene on this YouTube channel, but it’s outdated and looks nothing like the final color-grading. However, the added probe droid recording is in the final cut, so if you’d like to check that out, here ya go - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aOgb5y39vA

I’d like to reiterate that the coloring of these previews is NOT the current version.

You tube clips are unavailable
