Info Wanted: on this Force Ghost fan-vid for ROTJ...

Force Ghost Hayden and Shaw

I just found this on youtube and wondered if any of the artists here was responsible for this by chance. Me, I think it’s a good edit and if Lucas actually did it, would satisfy both parties of the “Force Ghost” debate. Also found one where someone inserted Qui-Gon, but that’s another story…

If this is in the wrong forum to post, I apologize.

I posted the one where Qui-gon was inserted into the ending a while back. I am not really sure where the thread is at now. This ending is okay, but I still like the original the best.

Found the topic on the Qui-Gon ghost. Nice work with that.

I didn't actually do the editing I justed posted the link to the video.

one thing it needs: delete some shots of the Ewoks in order to restore Luke and Leia's embrace to it's full length as well as Luke's wink and nod to the spirits (in order to keep "Victory Celebration" in sync). then it would be the ultimate ending.

I'd actually love to see an edit like that in one the next fan edits of the SE!

I hate it. I don't want to see Hayden as a ghost at all. That and I think having it this way makes the scene even more confusing. It should be Shaw as the ghost...period.

It'd be great if some sort of morphing was possible instead of just a quick dissolve. Or perhaps one could try and find a frame where the heads are the closest possible to being in the same position and then do a really quick fade there. That could look neat.

at least the evil leer would be gone(the #1 thing that I hated about the change), and the defining moment of the scene is there: shaw and Obi-wan sharing a look

That was great. Now someone just needs to add Jake Lloyd in there and it'd be perfect.

Totally pointless edit. How would merging a bad idea (IMO) with a good idea make me satisfied? It wouldn't.

I don't know what Lucas and company were thinking when they decided to change it to Hayden. The way to fix it is to put it back the way it was originally.

If Lucas wanted us all to identify Hayden as Anakin in ROTJ and forget Shaw, then he should've done it right by putting Hayden in some old-age makeup and reshooting Vader's death scene and matching it up with the '83 footage of Luke. Same for the ghost scene. It could've been done that way.

But hamhandedly pasting some pre-existing ROTS footage onto Shaw's head is just pure douchebaggery.

And this clip doesn't do it justice at all. In fact, I think it's even worse.
