Actually I was just on my way here to announce that yes, Progress is picking up again. Nothing really new to show - I'm still working on the same stuff. I might have some completed segments done soon. I could have got back into this a little sooner but I'm going at a pace where I can actually enjoy working on this thing.

One cool thing about the micro series format is they can do these little cut away stories like Kitt fisto under water and Mace battling it out on dantooine, However in the long run they seem a little out of place and don't seem to have much to do with the core of the story. What are peoples thoughts about these segments?

I know there is some negativity towards Mace and his over the top antics but ive got some ideas to try make that more enjoyable. And for reference i've removed Yoda's reference to "master windu still fights on dantooine." which could have helped. Although it may be possible to reincorporate that dialogue elsewhere.

also Note that there wont be any narration at all from yoda. The story begins proper with the battle of muunilist. certain elements from the opriginal first chapter will be cut and pasted elsewhere.

I say lose the Mace and Kit Fisto parts.

Maybe you could use bits of them in a montage (if you need one).

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

I hate the Kit Fisto scenes more than any other part of the series. Please cut it.

Wondering what people will make of this. FYI it's a flashback scene. :0

Guess what Ringo's been watching?

There will be video clips at some point just please don't ask me when. I work on this in my spare time.

The introduction of ventress will play out before the main titles. And hopefully in a way that is interesting Yet still makes sense. That way we don't halt the main story to Introduce her before continuing on again. Also it seemed that she tracked down Anakin pretty damned quickly in the original timeline of events.

I've just about done this sequence. I went so something a lot simpler than i had originally intended so it's not quite as cool bt still looks good IMO.

- Well 90% complete. May need to make some minor adjustments in order for all the shots to flow nicely.
I've desaturated the colours a little. On review the sequence in places was a little orange for my liking.

I've been working on quite a few shots but as you can probably tell it takes a while to get things done.

Thoughts?

I think the sabers are just too thick. They look like they are using the telescoping toys. And I think I liked your concept solors. The new one seemed a bit washed out.

I should have mentioned that the whole scene will be a little washed out colour wise - Since it takes place outside of the main story. everything of Ventress before she encounters Skywalker over Muunilist will take place PRE main titles.

I like your concept shot better, also.

Of course the concept shot looks better at first, but for Johnny Ringo's intention the completed shot is just right!
The only thing I have to admit is that on the one hand the white parts of the lightsaber laser rays look too thick, but one the other hand you did that to be able to soften the transition between the white glow and the colored glow of the saber and that looks better.
So it's a compromise and we have to wait for the final product to judge it.

Yeah might sound like a broken record but I like the concept shot better as well. The colors in the completed shot are extremely "soft"

Don't worry guys there will be plenty of moments later in the 'film' for colouring like the concept shot.

Well....You don't really have a choice .

All I'm after is honest opinions here I'll show more stuff when I can.

Was there a reason why you made the colors so "soft" in this scene compared to the others? Were you just going for the Star Wars feel like when Luke is using his saber aboard the falcon...

Yes there is a reason. that was the point i was trying [failing] to make.

The sabers here are NOT as they will appear throughout. Just in this sequence [like something out of a dream...]. The soft washed out look is intended.

Hows it coming along?

slowly.

Probably not what people want to hear but I've got a handful of projects [of varying types] on the go and not a lot of free time at the moment.

As always I'll let you guys know when there's something to....know.

Well I was out shopping today and picked up a new monitor so I should be working on this thing a bit over the weekend. the fishbowl I was using for a bit there had a washed out looking display [no matter the settings] which made things a little awkward. I'm currently just tweaking various bits and pieces to be slotted together later on.

Yes. Although It has been very quiet I have been working away at this in my free time. The project is alive, I just don't have a lot of time to hack away at it. I've been doing stuff on it the last few weekends in between other things.
