Spaceballs 2010: The Re-Revisited Special Edition ON HOLD

Author
Time
 (Edited)

I am starting up a new project for Spaceballs. Why? Because the lack of Spaceballs fan-edits. I want to basically revisit this film like Ady has done with Star Wars (although I cannot do the work he has done to Star Wars).

Things I will do:

Colour correction

FX enhancements/replacements (if possible)

Garbage Matte fixes (Maybe)

Matte replacements/enhancements (If there are good replacements)

Re-rotoscoping the schwartz sabers. (Maybe)

Enhancing Ships/Adding more Star Warsish engine glow

Things I will not do:

Continuity Errors

New Music

Pretty Much all audio (Aside from Wilhelm-screams)

Things You guys can do:

Make Mockups

Give suggestions

Decide

This film isn't going to be different, but it will look cleaner. It is going to take some time, but I want to finish it, so it should be done before within the next several months, depending on how life goes.


This image was made for fun, but it convinced me that this film could look awesome.

Angel thought it would be cool to change the lightsaber colours. So he made a mockup.

Angel surprisingly made the interiors of Spaceball 1 look way better. If you don't like the grey walls, you will not like the fan edit.

Angel suggested changing the Castle in Druidia because the matte is soo horrible. I plan on seeing what I can do. I might be able to use the castle and add a moving background. Birds, clouds, blowing trees, etc...

What would you like to see done? Post and decide on it. Your voice is very important.


"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

So, as far as Schwartz saber colour

Do people think they need to be changed or kept the same colour?

I am re-rotoscoping them, but I need to know what people want.

I would keep the original colors.  Changing them to match the Star Wars movies just seems to take away part of the parody aspect, at least for me.

I am thinking of changing the cores to white though. I could just enhance. One thing about the sabers in Spaceballs is the fact that they surprisingly stay the same shape (Don't quote me on that).

Speaking of Rainbow, it would be funny if the sabers changed colours throughout the fight.

Or make them change colors every time they come in contact with something, so each saber hit against the other or a wall or something cycles it to another color.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

This sounds really great, I'm going to be following this thread with great interest. I think that the CC looks great, and I'm for the new rendition of Druidia, though I don't think it should look so dark and stormy.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

I think the quality of the film is part of the charm, But i'd definitely be interested in your 'corrections'. As far as the sabers go - i think you should do various mockups - including the original colours - and see what looks best.

Good luck.

skin tones look a bit strange in some of the shots still, otherwise it all looks pretty good.

Angel great work. Most of those look like things I should be able to do.

Great work!!! I shall be starting on the initial colour correction soon. I may release the colour corrected version by itself for people who would like to see it in better colour.

I will be using slight sharpening to the film on my version.

The sabers are getting a slight make over in both versions, and the ships engine glows will be fixed in both versions.

Ok new comparison, it will be on page 1, but I shall post it here first.

Note image in Skroobs bathroom is in better perspective.

I've worked out how I am going to do the colour correction.

I am going to make Spaceball 1 look cold and dead (Most reds will be present but toned down a bit.)

Other shots will have a harsh pass of colour removal (then I am going to add semi-transparent layers to the film to get back colour I need) Which will be rotoscoped according to the needs of the scene/frame.

Druidia will be the hardest fix of the whole film. It is going to take some major work.

The planets will need a big fix. I don't really want to do a new planet but the image below is probably going to force me too. Of course colour correction will probably save it (I love the humor in it), but that car is going to be white again!!! 

EDIT

Ok I decided to give it a shot and fixed it. I will do more to it later but right now I like it better.

Yeah, I had noticed the mirror too, but forgot to do something about it. Thanks for reminding me.

More gray walls pre viz.

Fixed the monitor that now shows the exact movie playing and not an upper camera.

Spaceballs fan edit could be easily a stylized parody of ANH:R :)

And so it shall be!!!! This film should be fairly easy, since it is small scale of course. Great mockups and it really looks like a parody of ANH:R

I think the skin tones are a little more realistic (at least on my very bright laptop)

They look less like they are wearing makeup!!!
