STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 REVISITED ADYWAN *720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION — Page 432

Not sure if this has already been mentioned someplace else, but a new reddit user named u/Adywan has been posting Revisited videos on reddit and has recently started a subreddit called r/swrevisited, which he is the moderator of.

I think this person is impersonating Adywan. Could be wrong, but thought I would mention it just in case.

I’ve seen that guy around and I don’t think it’s him. The redditor did color correction for some random guys video? I don’t know, the way they type doesn’t really seem ‘in character’, y’know?

That’s what I thought. I first saw his most recent video and 1) knew you hadn’t posted anything from ANH:R HD with vfx, and 2) it wasn’t at your typical level of professionalism. It just felt off.

And the way he writes wasn’t like you at all either. At first I thought maybe he was just a fan of yours, but him going by your name and has saying things like, “I did that 10 years ago” clearly shows he’s trying to impersonate you.

I don’t know if I can but I will try and see if I can report him.

EDIT: His bio literally says "I am the creator of Star Wars Revisited, and Empire Strikes Back Revisited. "
Ironically, he links to all of your actual social media accounts. I reported him for impersonation, but we’ll see if anything gets done.

Yeah. His edits are decent, but impersonating someone like Adywan is way too low

I also believe i found out his main reddit account, u/darrenshan1979

You should make a post on swrevisited.wordpress.com

Back on topic, I love this imagery. I wonder if Ady could add the Falcon to Revisited.

That would, of course, necessitate the building of an ANH Falcon model… 😉

https://deeplyobsessed.blogspot.com/2013/03/yavin-exterior-with-millennium-falcon.html

The only thing is it does not land in front of the main temple… It lands on one of the other ones. There is a random jungle shot (with a sandy pathway) that could perhaps be a good swap for the falcon at smaller temple / jungle. if you notice on the shot where the falcon is in yavin atmosphere the temples are flown over then in the next shot when the falcon come to land the temples are there again. It’s as if the falcon should be going the other direction or something on the jungle fly over.

The big problem is is that the main temple is never shown apart from the shot you have posted in any landscape or wide shot. the shot in question nothing ever flys towards or away from it because it is not there 😃

The sandy pathway jungle shot is like a cover shot for something or that shot is missing the falcon landed. It kind of is a bit ponderous what that shot is apart from “nothing”

I see the f**ker has made another account using my bloody real name this time. Suck a sad little person who can only get attention by impersonating someone else.

EDIT: The user TheRealAdywan, that just posted there, is actually me this time. I created an account solely to confront this guy, but it’s highly doubtful that i will be contributing much.

Is there no one in authority at reddit you can make aware of the situation? Get verified like people do on twitter to thwart impostors?

We never see where the Falcon lands, do we?

We do in the special edition as the falcon was completely missing from a shot.

I always felt the guy with the scanner gun was on the main temple but I suppose it is open to interpretation being how it is a bit of a mess how Yavin extetior shots was done.

either way meaningless jungle shot with sandy path is the biggest sore thumb of the sequence and something else was probably meant to go there.

I removed the ships from this matte shot, the plan I had was to use this as the replacement shot for the Jungle fly over (also considering the sky is totally different). Obviously the Falcon fly’s around on the left and then joins the special edition shot of the falcon Landing or even on the right as It does not matter we never seen the structure before. I’m no special effects wizard so I could not execute this idea but if you like the idea there is a nice background for you 😃 save quite a bit of work?

Then obviously I was going to replace the meaningless Jungle shot with the Falcon Landed… that would be quite a bit of work.

So you have my idea of how to handle it you can have it if you like or chop and change it around as you see fit or do something totally different 😃 But the idea is to sell the idea that the Temple is really there.

It very much feels like the missing special edition Matte shot we never got and I can also think of another point it could be used again…

I hope that cheers you up a bit Ady 😃

I don’t think subreddits can be deleted, but doubleofive is a mod currently, so he should be able to list it as inactive if necessary.
I’m trying to see what I can do about reporting this person. In the meantime I’ll give doubleofive any information I find on this person and see what can be done. I know he’ll be lurking on here, I’m pretty sure he has an account on OT.com, so I won’t say anymore on this thread.

Sorry to bring all of this drama up on here, Ady.

the user claiming to be adywan… simply isn’t adywan.

His profile may link to the real adywan’s social media accounts, yet as adywan has stated himself elsewhere… he is NOT a member of reddit.

Yeah. I saw that post

I thought u/adywan was the real Adywan, but i guess not.

EDIT: he has been banned from this subreddit.

On Reddit? Ha! Best case scenario is for Ady to make an account and do an AMA (basically a Q&A with Reddit users), which usually verify the person is who they say they are. Then he can point to the AMA for verification.

But the account itself can’t be tagged as “verified” or anything, I don’t think.

That will hopefully fix the situation on your part … you don’t have to keep up to date with it, just linking it to this forum’s page.

Thanks. If possible, could you comment on any of the stuff he’s posting to make it clear that he is NOT me and those videos have nothing to do with me.

Got a response to my reporting of him as an impostor, BTW:
