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:
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:
Pretty Much all audio (Aside from Wilhelm-screams)
Things You guys can do:
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
