Star Wars The 30's Serial Edition
Part1 episode 1-2-3
Part2 episode 4-5-6
Hi, it's my first post here. I've made something that you might be interested in.
It's a 4h40 long silent Star Wars movie (only Williams score, no voices, no sound effects), black and white, with dialogues cards.
Maybe I should have called this "20's serial edition", cause the 30's were the great debut of sound and color,
I thought 30's sounds better... anyway...
PM me if you want rapidshare links for DVD part1 and2 (around 40 ziped files for each part)
Quality has been hugely improved, compared to the first part DVD released last month on faneditforum.org
(few cuts were also made here and there)
and, thanks to Ripplin: no more bad french/english translations and horrible grammatical faults in the text cards.
I think you can now watch this without laughing about my poor english (I'm french).
Each episodes are now chapitred.
Even if there are more than 8 hours cutted out of the originals, it's the same story but tell in a different and very shorter way.
My goal is to give the same old movie feeling to the whole saga that can now be watched as one big movie.
You'll find some PT score in OT, and some OT score in PT.
I can't detail all the cuts, but you don't have to care if Han shoots first or not anymore:
he does not meet Greedo at all.
There is no opening crawl on part2 cause it's all one movie and so the crawl is on part1.
But before each episode (that can be watched separatly by the main menu) there is a "Ten years later" type of card,
then a text explaining the events between the episodes (some of these texts are from the original movies text crawls).
No Obi/Ani/Dooku/Yoda fight in EP2.
No Yoda/Sidious fight in EP3. I like this fight, but I needed to cut it (time issue)
The only moment Yoda is holding a saber is at the end of order 66.
The only thing that really bother me is that this edit don't show Vader killing any imps officers.
(I always liked to see the ultimate bad guy killing more imperials than rebels in the OT!
There's really "still good in him" I suppose!)
I had a very hard time working on the music synch.
I did my best even if some transitions are still a bit rushed. I don't think I can improve it a lot more.
This edit is something I needed to do.
Like... I don't know, saying goodbye to a world that I really like but that I somehow need to leave.
I don't say that I'm done with Star Wars, I'm a huge fan and I still have some hope for the live tv-series.
But I had to do this edit first to have a completely free mind on other projects.
