Leia only kisses Luke to make Han jealous anyway...
Going back to the asteroid one last post on this. Whoever on the team does those 2d but 3d scaled animations (layers moving at different speeds) first of all I want to say I think they are brilliant. I wish more films had them.
But I am kind of hoping that this can be fixed with one of those wonderful animations that you do as It seems all the elements are there for it.
But weather you use this technique to do a fix on it or not or choose to leave it as it is in the original film or tackle the issue another way. I wanted to share a couple of thoughts I had about approaching it in a 2D animation sense even if only for sharing thoughts and being inspired by some of these shots that I have seen you do previously.
Basically I was thinking about this 2d asteroid that has been removed from the film and ways of manipulating it whilst keeping the supposed big one also (less Jarring) but moving it about in the frame. But to cut a long story short yes twisting into frame was a thought I had on an anchored corner but also masking the edge inwards short of the actual edge and scrolling / rotating the surface through the mask to appear as though the surface is sliding against perspective but only slightly.
anyway I wanted to share that thought really about masking short of an edge and scrolling through a surface basically It's an interesting new spin (no pun intended.) And that does not mean either that I am asking for this to be done only a thought about 2d animation in general.
In terms of what the "Big" asteroid looks like or at least how I perceive it from what we see of it. To me it's like a remnant of an old planet surface that has been fractured / destroyed / obliterated and the top side that the falcon fly's over is like the once existing surface of a planet that has broken apart where it's underside and sides would be where it broke apart and it was once a part of something much larger.
About editing grammar and passages of time. Yes I agree that it's fair to show someone finishing their cup of tea or coffee and then then next shot they are leaving the door of their house. But that sort of editing grammar does not bode well in action sequences where we are meant to feel "in the moment" It all depends on what type of scene you are editing. In this scenario in a full on action sequence jump cuts are not the sort of thing you would introduce intentionally.
