Not quite yet. Soon though.

All good sheepish. We’re a patient bunch

And I thoroughly appreciate that.

By the way (question for everyone), I’ve got two options to present to you for the rough cut screening. Would you rather:

  1. A screening in the next day or two with everything ready, minus the audio tracks for Jar Jar and Nass (with subtitles present)

or

  1. A complete screening with the audio tracks for Jar Jar and Nass, but not for another week or two.

I’m having a lot of issues with the audio for these two characters, which is the main reason I took some time off of working on this edit (I was just tired of dealing with it and needed a break). I just can’t seem to get it right.

If you’re cool with the lack of gungan voices, I could have a screening ready in the next couple of days, just for you to preview everything else while I figure out what to do about them.

Thoughts?

I’d definitely rather have option two, we can wait a few weeks for a more complete cut and I’m sure you’ll want feedback on the gungan voices as well.

I would love to be in on the screening, if that’s possible.

Definitely possible!

What I’ll probably do is upload the screener to Vimeo and PM the password to everyone in this topic who has expressed interest in previewing it. I was originally going to limit access to maybe four or five people, but I don’t want to leave anyone out, and it might help me to have more eyes on the project.

I was just messaging someone about the preview date. I don’t have a specific date yet, but I was thinking doing it sometime during the week of the 11th-17th. This will give me enough time to work on some of the audio issues I’m having. And if I’m still having problems at that point, I’ll just go ahead and upload it anyway and see what you all think.

I’ve been following this thread, but I never really left any comments before now (Suffice it to say, anything positive I’ve had to say others have already said, and in far better words than I could manage.). I’ve never been very interested in checking PT fan-edits out before, but yours has piqued my interest. If you could let me in on the screening, I’d certainly be grateful.

Wow, never thought that’d happen!

I’ll be sending out invites soon. I’m re-encoding the screener to fix a weird stutter it was doing.

Everyone who has expressed interest will be sent a PM.

Midichlorians are real people - get over it, they’re just movies lol

Why do people insist on just removing all the things they didn’t like. Midichlorians? Took that out. Jar Jar Binks? Edited him out. You can’t betray Lucas’ vision for his movies. So many people get this wrong. Just cutting stuff out doesn’t make the movie any better. Like so many fan edits descriptions just remove jar jar - he’s a main character.

Now, I haven’t seen this cut cuz I won’t watch anyone else’s but mine but I can tell just by reading what people ‘did’ to the films. Why are people so obsessed with nonsense like midichlorians? You know why no one mentioned them in the original trilogy? Cuz it was just yoda & obi wan left. Seriously, why even bother with that explanation. Who’s got the time. Luke’s the only ‘jedi’ left. Who’s got time for all that science crap after 900 yrs. What Yoda and Ben said is still true. The force is all around us - binds us, err penetrates us… That’s all true of the ‘scientific’ explanation of midichlorians. I’m fine with the bacteria explanation. F

I’m not trying to rain on anyone’s parade lol or be a d-i-c-k. People just cut stuff out they hate or do silly things like edit all 3 prequels into one movie or redo effects and sound…do you get paid to do this? No. Who cares if you fixed effects and edited the sound and blah blah blah

If you didn’t FIX THE MOVIE, it’s doesn’t matter. You should service Lucas’ vision and try to help make it better. The STORY comes first. That’s all that matters, not trying to prove hpw amazing you are or take over someone else’s baby. Remember that.

P.S.

If you take out the midichlorians, then Anakin doesn’t exist. Plus they’re referenced in all 3 prequels.

“A Virgence you say?”
“It is possible he was CONCIEVED by the midichlorians.”
“You’re speaking of the prophecy of the chosen one?”

Take out the midichlorians and all this has no meaning. Just sayin 😉

I consider my edits ‘blueprints’…not fan edits. They represent what could have been… 😉
