Still new to this but after watching some great edits over the years i thought I’d give it a shot.
When i see some hate on the prequels and the PT era i always tell them to give the EU a chance because that’s where the Prequels really shine, but understandably some are just movie fans. The Clone Wars is my favorite era and its shown in the novels,games,the two cartoon series,comics etc… But the movies sadly were a let down.
The ROTS novelization is one of the best books written in the Star Wars franchisee in my opinion and its a shame the movies couldn’t bring such a great story to light.
I recently heard the audio book of the novel and it made me like the story even better, like the movie we always wanted to see come to life. Anakin and Obi wan have some great back and forth banter and it seems to have the brotherly relationship the Clone Wars cartoon shows. Lines are a improvement and we get to explore characters inner thoughts.
So it hit me with the audio book i could try to tell its story and combine it with the visuals of the movie.
I’m still in the early stages so i don’t have a clear idea and if you guys have any ideas I’m all ears, but here are some of my thoughts to what I’m thinking
The voices have a really good range they got r2d2 sounds and the voice work ranges from Yoda to Anakin to Dooku and Vader etc. Don’t know if it one guy but if it is he really is talented. Padame i have to edit because its a male trying to replicate her voice so a voice changer to make more female sounding
Might play around with pitch shifting the voices to make them sound a little more distant.
Don’t know if i want to make this a Revenge of the Sith movie edit or a micro series/ cartoon series style episode show, especially with the narration.
If i do it a movie edit thinking of doing some narration style in the movie kinda like good fellas style where the main character narrates of people on who they are. Kinda could use this as a flash back scene.
Thinking of adding that scene in ep2 with Dooku talking with the separatists in Geonosis and the short clip with that Muun as a Palatine flash back scene of Plagueis telling/teaching him about manipulation.
I want to add Yoda talking with Qui-Gon coming back as a ghost voice telling him of his faults and the how jedi were blind having a really good heart to heart moment and then Qui-Gon telling him about how he could become a force ghost and to got to Dagobah.
Here’s something i put together. The scene is the beginning of ROTS movie.
