SSWR's Attack of the Clones - Alternate Timeline Edit (WIP) — Page 2

Author

I understand your objective, but whatever direction you go, you can do it with much less dialog, and that will help with dubbing.

For example, it’s enough to keep Obiwan’s lines about being worried for Anakin and his attachments.
This enhances the impact of his mother’s sub-plot and the role of the Emperor.
Anakin is flawed, but his flaws are human. I like him this way.

Here’s how I edited (WIP) the first scene:
https://we.tl/t-Po9YvQL5yG

The dialog is only about his dreams and mother, Obi-Wan acts as a mentor and friend.
The delivery could be better, so there’s room for dubbing. But you don’t need much.
After the bugs, I go straight for the foot chase and I’ve trimmed the dialog at the Bar’s entrance.
Again, Obi-Wan acts as a mentor, and Anakin is just worried and lost, not confrontational or arrogant.

Thanks for sharing your wip edit! I like to see everyone’s take on AOTC scenes especially. I do like some of what you got…and there are some things I’m not as fond of. It’s all subjective of course.

I do like the cut from “quite as a tomb” to zam.
While it’s nice to have the bickering gone between Anakin and Obi, imho it feels a bit off with staying inside padmes bedroom the whole time. It felt we should cut back to the Jedi…but maybe that’s just from seeing this scene a million times.

Personally, I don’t like cutting all of the zam speeder chase. I’ll be cutting a huge portion of it but not all.
And I’ve never been a fan of the nightclub scene or the conversation before the Jedi enter.
As far as I can tell, there’s nothing we gain by going into the nightclub.
I believe I’ve found a way to have zam crash and the Jedi pick her up and move her to the back alley. Now it just looks like she’s injured from the crash.

I hope that didn’t sound like I was bashing your cut. Just my thoughts. Obviously there are going to be things the majority of us agree on cutting or fixing. Then there are other things that are more subjective. Things like: “this moment just feels like Star Wars to me” or “I’ve always like this certain shot”.

While I’m sure I’ll mess with this scene again in the near future, I’ll probably keep a good chunk of it the same. I know I could cut it down but I’ve added that additional dialogue to better flesh out the Jedi order and how Anakin feels about some of it.

Or is there something I’m just not understanding? By looking at my cut, what specifically are you suggesting I cut? I hope I’m not coming off like a know-it-all ass. I’m honestly interested.

Your comments are fine and you understood perfectly!
I just wanted to show you another possibility, that requires less dubbing and might be easier for you.
But you should do it as you like, it’s your show!

That being said, on the 1st scene I’d change the talk about “is she seeing someone”.
First, it’s just odd to go from crying for his Mother to talking about girls!
Second Obi-wan would not have such a direct conversation about a Senator they are protecting.

So I suggest you make the conversation more indirect and about attachments in general.
Perhaps have Anakin mention that he never had a relationship and question the Jedi a bit.
He is sad and lost at this point, but not romantic.

Romance only comes latter on, when he starts to feel happy around Padmé.
The transporter scene is again about attachments and the Jedi, only that now Anakin is happy.
If you must include it, stress that by having him say something like “The code forbids many things, but I’m happy that they gave me this mission”. And with “this mission” they exchange looks…

Hi SSWR, in your last clip, when the ship is arriving on Naboo rather than a “here’s our stop” type of comment, could you have a background voice announcing their arrival - it just seemed very sudden in the clip. I also liked the humour with Anakin, and I think it worked as humour, but it did feel slightly less Star Warsy (a technical term) to me. On the whole though I think your ideas for creating new lines which also fit the lip movements, timing, and feel of the scene, are unrivaled across this site so I’m looking forward to seeing more of your ideas.

Regarding your mentions of out of the box ideas and reusing footage, here are a few ideas i have for my ideal edit (which will probably never happen - also some of these may have come from things I’ve read here through the years so not trying to claim exclusive originality on these).

  • Make Dooku a rogue jedi with a white lightsaber (it signifies his leaving the jedi order and lack of affiliation to any side), and increase his lines as much as humanly possible. Christopher Lee has done so much voice work you can probably create any line if you spend long enough looking for the right sources (book readings like Sherlock Holmes for example). Also if you have him as a hooded hologram in scenes or his face covered by a mask, that gives you even more freedom).

  • I fully support the prior idea of cutting Yoda as much as possible (ideally completely). I would love to see a seen where Obi Wan talks to Anakin about one of the strongest of the ancient Jedi Masters, Vader, who Anakin wants to become as powerful as, and eventually takes the name Darth Vader as a corruption of this. It would make the choice of new name less random, and also if Vader were shown as a statue somewhere to be a large human male, then come ESB, having Yoda being the most powerful, and non human, and tiny, really adds to this twist.

  • Whilst I agree that flashbacks aren’t Star Warsy, force visions are ok, and there can be some cross over there. My suggestions would be the scene where Anakin rescues his mum. If you reverse parts of the footage and only show slowed down brief snippets then you could make it seem that Anakin’s vision is his mum being tied up rather than untied. If you change the colouring and add a very light sound of Vader’s breathing then it would make for good foreshadowing. Then the scene where Anakin leaves the Tusken tent and slashes at the Tusken, that could have the lightsaber changed to red and the face obscured. The rest of the costume is dark and flowy enough that if his face could be replaced with a Darth Vader style helmet it would suggest he is dreaming about a bad guy who isn’t him.

  • Another vocal recasting I would love but I imagine would be way too much work would be replacing all of Anakin’s lines with lines from Orson Welles. Whilst he may not necessarily sound like JEJ he has a paced and distinct way of speaking which I just think would transition perfectly.

  • As for the structure of the film, I would open with the shots of Anakin and Padme landing on Geonosis to rescue Obi Wan, but change it to Padme and Obi Wan rescuing Anakin. This would open with an action sequence, and establish these three as the main characters, with Anakin and Padme already being in a relationship. Show it from the get go and it makes it easier for the viewer to believe it as they aren’t having to believe it building up.

Anyway those are just some random ideas for you, but as I said I’ve really enjoyed reading your ideas so far so keep up the good work.

@4throck
I do appreciate your feedback and ideas. Thanks! As far as making things easier with less dubbing goes…I guess I don’t want to make things easier! I wanna squeeze every ounce of Star Wars out of these scenes as I can! 😉

While I agree he goes from being upset about his mother then straight into Padme without much of a transition, the original was about the same: “I’d much rather dream about Padme”. BUT you’re still right. I’d like to make the transition smoother in the dialogue. Any ideas?

Obi-Wan having such a direct conversation about a Senator they are protecting: Well, again, they DO have this in the original version. There’s really no way around this. They need to have this conversation about Padme. There’s information that must be talked about. Plus, Luke and Han talk about a princess they’re protecting too. 😉

I’d never thought about the idea of the romance being gradual with Anakin becoming happy. I don’t dislike the idea, BUT I kind of have a plan already in place that will help Anakin and Padme’s relationship…at least I hope. I’ll have to get around to posting another clip soon!

@Johannus
Thank you so much for your kind words and ideas! Let’s talk…

About the “here’s our stop” clip: I guess I made it too subtle because there actually IS an announcement being made which is what Anakin’s responding too! Ha! It’s not really supposed to be understood…it’s not necessarily in English. Did you notice it? Was it too quiet?

Yeah, I can’t say I know how to write dialogue…especially Star Warsy dialogue! Please, you or anyone who has ideas for altered dialogue, send it my way!

Sometimes, the way I go about doing these scenes is I think of what dialogue is available to me. In this case, it was pretty much anything Natalie Portman has said in these movies (I’m also looking into other films)…but of course, specifically her lines from this scene. I’m constantly moving dialogue around…usually in a word document…kind of like a script…then I’ll be thinking about what I need Anakin to say and what information needs to be conveyed…but of course ALL of this needs to flow and it can’t feel forced AND it needs to be cute or funny…I mean, this is not easy guys! 😉

I do believe Dooku will be a rogue Jedi but I’m leaning towards him having a green lightsaber. Qui-Gon was sort of a rogue Jedi and he had green. Luke had one in ROTJ and in some ways he was also a rogue Jedi.
I didn’t know Chris Lee read Sherlock Holmes…nice! I’m checking into this! A friend sent me a link to some of his lines from the Kingdom Hearts games…didn’t know about that either!

Believe me, I really like the idea of cutting Yoda altogether…I’m just not sure if I can….I’ll really have to look into it. It might be possible in AOTC but if I ever do ROTS…I just can’t imagine how to get through certain scenes without him.

I’m not sure how I feel about this idea of Vader and his name. I’m not sure how I could pull that off. I certainly would like to somehow fit the name of Vader in there somehow somewhere so that I could keep the “I am your father” moment a surprise. I might have an idea…one that I believe was floating around these boards ages ago…but this would be for ROTS.

This idea about making it look like Vader killing the Sandpeople in a force vision. I believe I said earlier that I didn’t really want any foreshadowing…BUT…hmm…that’s kind of a cool idea. I’ll have to think about this.

Orson Welles…that’s an interesting idea. I don’t believe I could find enough dialogue to make it work but maybe someone could mimic him…? Anyone?

I’m not sure how I would pull off Padme and Obi rescuing Anakin. I think the idea of essentially starting the movie at the arena is very interesting…something I’ve already considered…but I’ve yet to figure out how to make it work…to my liking anyways. You then have the question of: if the end of the movie is moved to the beginning, then what’s now the ending?

Please keep up the ideas! This is good! 😃

So having rewatched both clips I can hear the announcement on the second clip - on first viewing (on my phone) I hadn’t noticed the announcement and had actually thought the audio glitched slightly, but being a test clip thought nothing of it. On my laptop I could hear it fine, but given that you had to point it out to me, I would say it was perhaps a little subtle - also perhaps if there could be a pause in Anakin’s line it could highlight that he has stopped to listen to it, and act as the viewer’s prompt that it is of some relevance so we should notice it too.

In your first clip the line about if Padme is “seeing anyone” bugged me - I don’t object to the idea behind it but the word seeing didn’t sit quite right. Perhaps something like “I heard she is no longer with her partner” could get the same meaning across without sounding quite as casual modern day speech? (This is all very much personal preference though).

Annoyingly I made a mock up of the Vader vision scene a long time ago, and also an incredibly rough version of the Obi Wan and Padme rescuing Anakin scene (where they all rode out of the arena on the Reek) but have lost them both some time back (always back up your work eh) so I cannot offer any visual help. I agree in terms of if you move the end to the start then how do you end the movie. The best I could think was to have a structure roughly like this:

  • Open with Obi Wan and Padme rescuing Anakin - use the scene with Padme seated speaking to Dooku. This plays out as per the film but tweaked to avoid reference to rescuing Obi Wan. Once the beasts are brought into the arena they all escape their chains and ride the Reek out of the arena, back to the ship and all fly home (no Windu, other jedi, or clones).
  • Increase Dooku’s screen time and have the assassination plot, leading to Obi Wan solving his mystery plot, but that leads him to Dooku’s other super secret hiding planet and there he has an even bigger droid army so best bring the clones in to fight them - this would be as per the film but without the arena beasts part, leading right through to the Dooku showdown (ideally without Yoda). Downside is without some hugely impressive editing Dooku’s choice in planets would appear very singular.
  • Between this beginning and ending, I would also choose to save the Anakin side trip to visit his mum after having the force vision I previously described. I’d also like to add the scene with Vader’s name, and more Dooku scenes, and reintegrate deleted scenes such as Obi Wan speaking about Count Dooku.

All in all though I fully accept that this would probably be very choppy and a lot of work to get there so probably wouldn’t be worth it. In the interest of throwing random ideas around though I still like it - I’m just not sure how to make it work as it is such a big change around.

Just some extra food for thought. Can we hear your idea for protecting the Vader reveal you hinted at yet lol?

I will definantly play around with it once I get a better quality copy of the movie and begin the actual edit. These are excellent notes. Thank you!

I understand. And I believe I will play with this too. It’s a difficult balance because everyone is so stoic and I want to have him be a bit more loose. I’d like to bring in some more OT sounding dialogue.

Dang! I would love to see this!

Yeah, it sounds like something I’d like to see someone try but I can’t really wrap my head around how to go about this. For me, it comes down to the characters more than anything. Since it wasn’t originally filmed this way, the arena scene has no character introductions for our heroes.

Just some extra food for thought. Can we hear your idea for protecting the Vader reveal you hinted at yet lol?

Ha! Yeah, well…I think it was on these boards (probably the prequel radical redux ideas thread)
where someone was talking about how if someone could make it look like Obi-Wan takes on another apprentice in ROTS, then it could possibly work. And I don’t know if they had some specifics or if this is something I came up with but:
I’m currently planning on cutting young Boba Fett out of AOTC. A shot of two of him could be inserted into the scene when Obi-Wan and Anakin are parting ways (Goodbye old friend) with maybe Anakin (or Obi) saying something about this new Jedi apprentice named Vader. He wouldn’t have any lines, he’d simply be standing there. That would be the entire setup. Although, I can’t remember if this puts a hitch in anything further down the line.

Alright another clip:
https://youtu.be/w4mvbRCT5VQ

Ideas going on here (besides ideas I’ve mentioned previously):
Keep in mind: This is really their proper first scene together.

  • Mention of Anakin going through the window. Hopefully I can find someone to help me pull this off.
  • A new history between Anakin and Padme eluded to. It hasn’t been 10 years.
  • It’s more apparent that Padme’s interested in him but is still all about her job.
  • More straightening out Anakin’s story (including motivations). Also setting up Ben as teaching him but no mention of Master/Apprentice
  • There’s still a hickup that I’m trying to iron out. “Although I seem to recall your views on the Jedi’s code” The dialogue before and after…well…it’s hard tying it altogether. I’m trying to start with something general about the Jedi and segue into it being about Padme’s concern for Anakin’s safety…but also trying to keep some subtext going. Eh. That’s why the lipsync especially sucks right here. I just decided to go ahead and post it. Thoughts anyone?
  • Didn’t originally plan on leaving the creepy Anakin stare at the end but I thought it worked in the new context of the scene.
  • The music is temp too…but I just listened to Anakin’s theme from TPM soundtrack for the first time recently…I didn’t realize how OT sounding it was. Love it.

So I’ve been going back and forth on possible new video editor software. I used to use an older version of Adobe Premiere for a few years (couldn’t afford anything for that time) and just a few months ago started using Vegas Pro 15. While I like certain elements of it, I feel Premiere (even my old version) is much more intuitive. And yet, I keep hearing how many bugs there are in Premiere…plus the whole subscription thing is kind of meh…I downloaded Davinci Resolve and have started looking into it…and maybe it’s because I used Premiere for so long, but it just seems to take forever to accomplish anything in it (especially the node based Fusion). I’m leaning towards After Effects for…well…effects work but I’m undecided about the editing side of things.

I’m fully willing to admit I haven’t wanted to put in the effort to learning something other than Adobe…BUT…

What does everyone else use? For editing and effects? I’m curious AND your views might help me make a decision. 😉

Thanks Ben!

I was just getting ready to post another idea:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIIapJ9cMCk&feature=youtu.be

If I can adjust the colors for the new shots, I’ll probably use some version of this. I like how it gives a bit more gravitas to the Jedi’s plight. I don’t need Yoda sensing Anakin’s pain anyway. Plus, the whole mystery of who ordered the clones will be gone. Not sure about Jango yet…

I’m actually considering using this as one of the final scenes in the movie…it would completely replace the scene of Obi/Mace/Yoda talking about Dooku and the Clone Wars.

I know Yoda’s lipsync is a bit off, but it’s a small price to pay for what I think plays as a much better scene. Besides, I might be able to improve the lipsync latter.

An update!!! Sort of!!!

So eventually I will get to actually starting this edit for real. I’m still using a laptop and I don’t have Adobe CC yet. Hopefully in the not too distant future this will all be remedied!
However, I did start the 7 day trial of After Effects 2019 and Photoshop. I’ve used earlier versions before but I wanted to just play around and test out a few VFX ideas.

I’m hoping a few experienced members here can help me out with some answers. I’m a noob at a lot of this stuff!

With the amount of visual manipulation I plan to do in my edit, I should really be working in 720, yes? I ripped AOTC using MakeMKV and it is of course 1920x1080 at around 30 or 40 GB. I shrunk it down to 1280x720 to around 11 GB.
Does this seem about right? With certain shots I plan on manipulating (and in some cases, zooming in) should I be using the 1080 file? Is there anyone here who is working at 1920x1080 and doing effects heavy work?

As I watch the original file (the one I shrunk down to 720) it looks fine to me. It has the “black bars” when I watch it in full screen mode. However, when I rendered out some unfinished tests, something about the aspect ratio seems off. The film is stretched out to fill the entire screen (no “black bars”). My composition settings are in 1280x720 with a 16:9 ratio…(I didn’t adjust any settings in the composition settings)…so what am I not understanding?

Another question: When I watch Adywan’s ESB, there are no “black bars” when not in full screen mode. How is this achieved? And for what purpose?

I sure would appreciate some help…or at the very least, maybe a link to some place that may have answers?

Thanks!

Have the project be at 1280x544 and use a 1080p source.

I did all my editing at 1080p, but I didn’t have as many effects changes. It’s really up to what your source materials are. If you have all 1080p sources, there’s no reason to downscale other than perhaps render times. You’d still need to mask out pieces the same way, and having more pixels to work with will actually make that easier since you can see more detail.

If you’re doing a lot of zooming, it depends on how drastic the shifts are. If you go really far in, then yeah, I could see the justification for lowering the rest of the movie to match better. If it’s only like a 10-15% zoom you might be able to get away with it on a 1080p sequence by using an unsharp mask filter or something similar.

That being said, I know Adywan is editing at 720p so that he can integrate lower-resolution sources like the GOUT and whatnot, so that’s a perfectly valid reason to do so.

For most gaming/video editing computers these days, 1080 shouldn’t be too difficult. If the computer can handle 1080 at all and have at least 8GB of RAM (though 16 or more is ideal) and a decent graphics card, Adobe Premiere has a ‘proxy’ setting where you can use a lower quality source for basic editing and switch to the full 1080 source for detail work and final rendering. I’ve used that on my TFA edit while working on a laptop and it worked well.

As for the aspect ratio, anything I render in 1280x720 is in square pixels because the black bars are part of the picture information, e.g., not anamorphic. If I render that size in 16x9, the program is going to add more black picture information on the sides of the image to ‘fill out’ that 16x9 ratio. I don’t know how you’re getting an image that stretches to fill the screen on top and bottom, but I’d recommend just doing ‘square pixels’ unless you actually want a true anamorphic image.

Thank you so much for the information, guys! Very useful!

I’m still trying to get my screen size figured out. What preset do you guys use? I messed around with every preset available but they would either stretch out and/or crop the image! Wth? The only way I got it to work was by selecting one of the 1280x720 presets, and then scaling down the image in the comp window itself. Shrunk it down to about 75% but it fits now…with black bars and everything! 😛 Will that screw me up later somehow? There still must be something I’m missing, right?

OK, so just an extremely short shot test:

https://youtu.be/HBDtLoBeSWo

I don’t even know if I’m going with this idea. But I wanted to try out the content aware fill in AE. 😉

BUT WTH?! It’s still cutting off the image! In Premiere I’ve got the sequence settings on 1280x720 and square pixels. As I edit, I can see the entire image. No prob. I go to export and use Match Sequence Settings and it shows it’s output will be 1280x720. But it’s cropping the image! Anyone got any ideas?

EDIT: I deleted this video and replaced it with a decent looking one down below! 😛

That was solely in After Effects. I was editing this shot in Premiere. Obviously I removed Fett using AE but then I moved it on over to Premiere. I’m looking at my edit in Premiere right now and everything looks fine in my editing window. I play it and have no issues. Arg!
