//Star Wars Begins\\: HD Version Now on Vimeo — Page 48

Today I was at a loose end so I've begun to update Star Wars Begins. But only in terms of updating the subtitled facts and idents to HD. I won't be putting in any 'new' material for now. I'll eventually replace the old version with this HD version on Vimeo. Maybe one day I'll update the video quality with Harmy's Despecialized Edition and add additional scenes that have come to light with the BR and the ebooks. But that will be on the back burner for now.

I finally downloaded this and watched it last night. It was enjoyable from beginning to end! Well done!

I have one small beef- the complete lack of Marcia Lucas. Any particular reason nothing was included from her? I didn't notice at first but then I noticed you had a quote from Richard Chew. Odd that you would include him but not Marcia. Why is she consistently left out of behind the scenes, documentaries, etc. about Star Wars? She was the main editor and won an Oscar for it. 

That said, it is still enjoyable. I especially liked the way you had it play through just like the film itself. Thanks for your hard work on this!

Not sure where this material is from, but officially Lucas has wiped his ex-wife from the archives ...

Just like he has been trying to do with the OOT and exactly why a fan documentary should include her.

I'm on your side with this idea, because without her Star Wars would have been a disaster or just another cheesy sfi-fi flick and not the mega-hype that changed the world ;-)

A fan documentary works with what they are given. Since she never recorded any interviews or bonus features, Jamie would have to find Marcia himself and interview her. Which isn't a bad idea... ;-)

Here's her story. Very sad.

 I read that story some time ago and it was the impetus for my initial post in this thread. Sad indeed. But it looks like the author of this story was able to get a few lines here and there so I was surprised that there wasn't even a mention. But even with that, it was a great documentary. Kudos to Jambe for it!
