very nice, but will he have red lightsabers in the final cut, maul doesn’t seem like a guy that much into collecting the weapons of his victims also how about those eyes and armor colors, that would be truly amazing

You can hear what I assume is Ahsoka in the background of his second line. I might just go with another voice clip for that, but if you can find a way to mask or get rid of her voice, go for it. The voice lines could probably use some sort of ‘robot’ filter to make it sound more like it’s coming from Grievous. And Grievous’ grunts and laughs should probably be dubbed over. But other than that, I do think those voice lines fit very well.

Yes yes and yes. I’ll remove the background sounds and everything but I’m going to tweak the dialogue anyway.

EDIT: Almost all of those lines are scrapped or repurposed, I may upload a clip in the future but don’t expect me to anytime soon.

I for one, dislike the use of AHN music, it just feels weird to hear it in a movie that’s so tonally and aesthetically different than the OT (Granted, TPM is the closest to OT in terms of effects and looks in the entire PT so maybe I’m just being biased lol).

How goes to process of rotoscoping jar jar? (or rather, how do you plan on entirely getting rid of him?)

I laugh in the face of danger. Then I hide until it goes away..

Personally I really enjoy the OT music except it feels wrong listening to Owen’s and Beru’s death music over Qui-Gon’s. That didn’t fit so well. Otherwise I quite enjoyed it.

Thanks! I’ll try out something different for his death but I liked the way the theme played over his dialogue and how the transition plays into the next scene.

Well I don’t really know what to say, you probably won’t like this edit 😕

My shotgun mic came in! I’ll start doing some test with Anakin’s lines once I set everything up on stands and stuff. It’ll be great.

I’ve decided to record my own Alien dialogue. As much as I like the anti-cheese voices, Jeremy cut out many Neimoidian scenes that I’m keeping in my version and you can clearly hear echoes of the original voices in the background. I’ll try to mimic his voices as much as possible while also drawing inspiration from voices like Jabba’s and Greedo’s.

I’ve also 100% decided on an idea I’ve discussed in the prequel radical redux thread. The change is that before Qui-Gon even encounters Anakin, you see a few scenes of his life as a slave and a podracer. My edit will contain two podraces, one where Anakin loses second place to sebulba and another one where he uses Qui-Gon’s advice and wins the race. Both races have been edited very differently. Neither races will use the exact same shot twice, they’ve been edited into one-lap races as well.

The first race contains many racer death scenes and showcases Sebulba cheating, it will contain Anakin’s conversations with both his mother and Sebulba before the race. It shows how dangerous the races can be and how much Anakin risks every time he goes out onto the track. The music is intense and holds suspense, the entire first race is about 4-5 minutes long. The second race is more about Anakin’s emotions and his first time truly accepting and channeling the force, it will only contain Qui-Gon’s words to Anakin before the race. It will be scored with much more emotional music and hopefully it’ll feel very much like the final trench run with Luke in ANH. Both races will be edited to feel both fresh and non-repetitive.

Jar Jar will make a short appearance on Tatooine in the edit but he will be color-corrected and dubbed. He’ll just be portrayed as an alien that exists in the universe but isn’t really a character. Same thing goes for the Gungan who announces chancellor Palpatine’s election in one of my clips, he’s just an anonymous Gungan, not Jar Jar.

I will upload clips for all of this once I have some dialogue recorded for Anakin, the voice actor I’ve picked has quite a bit of experience in plays and has also done a few commercials. I’m confident that he’ll be able to bring the emotion that the character needs in his line delivery.

I just think TPM’s soundtrack is perfectly fine the way it is, adding new music would just feel weird unless it’s an original fan composition. But even then it would have to be subtle, like imperial march was at the end of the credits. Although I’ve always wanted something like this to be incorporated into the prequels somehow: https://youtu.be/fA-aWZ2RKSE?list=PL37AA958F7660C874&t=395
I simply love the way 6:35-6:45 is played, even if it’s just another rendition of the main theme it sorta feels an inspiration for Across The Stars. It was never used in the film though.

The podrace scenes sounds like a wonderful idea, for so many reasons.
But, would that necessitate either recasting the yellow pod we see as Watto’s all along?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Youv got me so hooked on this edit! This idea sounds genius!

No, in the montage of Anakin’s life, you see him fixing up his podracer and using it in the first race. He never damages it or anything and Anakin owning his own pod isn’t a secret. That whole subplot is gone in my edit.

Yeah I plan on using some of the most obscure SW themes out there, my edit will feel much different than the original because of this. TPM’s OST has a few great themes but overall find it quite forgettable. I like that song, I may have a use for it.

Well alright then. Curious, will you be doing any colour correction? TPM has this weird mix of red and slight pink tint throughout the movie. Another small thing that bothered me in TPM is how faded the lightsaber blades look, it’s most noticeable in the opening scene, some replacement blades to match the OT would be nice. If you ever need more music, I’d recommend the Battlefront 2015 and Shadows of the Empire OSTs

Yep, I will definitely color correct it scene by scene. The colors are very inconsistent from shot to shot. The sabers will definitely be brightened, I’ll upload some screenshots soon.

Yeah if you check my clips I’m actually using music from both of those, thanks anyway!
