Maybe a falsetto one too, cuz y’know… species.

Can’t tell if this is kidding or not, but I’m willing to give it a shot!

Posted this in Hal’s edit thread, probably should have put it here. Thoughts?

I’ve suggested ways to emphasize it even more, like having Palpatine’s voice sometimes be layered with multiple echoing voices. Like all the Sith are speaking through him.

So I have been playing with this idea for the past little while, trying to make it work. This is still rough, but I think it’s in a position that I can show it for feedback. I really wanted the “I am all the Sith” thing to lean into the “I am Legion” idea of the Sith literally possessing Palpatine’s body, so this is my attempt at conveying that. I’ve used Sade’s PHENOMENAL re-ordering of Palpatine’s dialogue, ending on “No match for the power in me”.

Now, I had seen people on here mention that the pregnant pause in dialogue in this cut was unfortunate, and some wishing that it ended on “You are nothing” so that it’s clear that Rey is responding to THAT specifically. So I let the Sith voices do the talking during that pause. Honestly, I’m pumped about how this is going, but I need everyone’s ears. Does this rule? Or does it suck?

If people want this for their edits, I would do it for all of Palpatine’s dialogue in the entire movie. Then editors could adjust levels however they like, or even do what RL suggested initially and only have the extra Sith voices come through occasionally.

I would essentially be supplying WAVs of each Sith voice separately so they could be mixed in as desired. Maybe sometimes you only want the whispery ones, maybe sometimes just the croaky ones, or the deep ones.

This is amazing.

Could be interesting if Kylo some how found Exegol again by following the fleet call out, the audio of Lando rallying allies to Exegol on Star Tours is very interesting.

YOU KNOW… if we’re able to start making some “landing/leaving” ship scenes, we could definitely show Ren’s ship (whatever it is at that point) leaving Endor and having the Lando Star Tours audio play over it as comms chatter.

Ben Solo memorized the way to Exegol.

In the theatrical movie, that is what happens. Cinefy is proposing we fans edit the movie so that something different happens. Fans doing editing is what’s known as fan editing, or fanediting.

I’m not able to access the full res Mandalorian episodes but, the Imperial Shuttle shot in hyperspace with the Slave 1 trailing a little ways behind works really well, just would need to find a way of masking it out without ruining the hyperspace effect.

Only other thing is finding some good Ben Solo footage for when he’s piloting; also a possible reaction shot for when he hear’s the transmission, scarred footage of Kylo from TLJ can work if I’m able to mask it out in After Effects usally depends on the angle.

Rough Concept: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/501825149469851659/846772383628001300/PicsArt_05-25-05.30.42.png?width=540&height=540

Currently been cleaning up the Lando audio from the Star Tours ride however; theres a kid speaking over part of the message, unfortunately all the youtube recordings of the ride have crowd cheers with the exception of the one I have found.

Now we’re cooking. I don’t mind how he originally arrives but getting an extra scene of Ben would be delightful

This is great. I think I have all episodes in high res. If you give me a timestamp I can share it with you? Was there also footage of a Star Destroyer in hyperspace at some point or was I dreaming it?

Yeah there hasn’t been any full Star Destroyers in the series yet, but I’d expect something like that soon enough. The episode for the Hyperspace shot with Imperial shuttle is the last of season 2, ‘the rescue’ Chapter 16. Time stamp I believe is around 10:20 to 10:35

So, I have a pretty janky solution for this: put some crackle or interference over when the kid speaks like Lando’s transmission is going out slightly.

I love these ideas recently. And love the idea of trying incorporate a part of the star tours into this.

Okay, I want to try this now. But does anyone have an idea of what footage to put the transmission into?

Still putting the sequence together, right now considering animating the entire Hyperspace / Imperial shuttle shot in blender because I cannot access The Mandalorian scene, I’ve already cleaned up the audio for Lando and managed to remove the kid cheering, but definitely should still be static / crackly when Kylo hears it.

Hoping to get some help rotoscoping a shot of Ben for the cockpit shot, attempted it but had some issues with the lighting / edges.

Does this layering for Palpatine’s voice work better? I was trying to just pitch his own voice down with a couple layers, trying to evoke the Episode III just-got-disfigured vibes, while still leaning into the “all the Sith” idea of multiple spirits inside him.

That… works pretty well, just harmonized voices saying one thing together. Seems very ROTS.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

The Lando message is good! I can’t even tell it was a phone recording. It seems like you used a radio tuning effect on the audio, but it’s not a very Star Warsy sound, if that makes sense.

I know it isn’t included with a hologram, but I wonder if you could a sound effect more like this.

I know originally the suggestion was that the audio would be included with the shot of the Imperial shuttle going through hyperspace, but I think it would also be fitting to show a shot of the Falcon in hyperspace as if it is transmitting the message as it flies around the galaxy, and/or maybe back-to-back establishing shots of random planets, to imply these are some of the places that are receiving the message. It could be a good way to set up planets like Coruscant, Bespin and Naboo revolting at the end of the movie, because they got the message from Lando earlier.

EDIT: I also like the more demonic sound of the Emperor clip. I hesitate to say it is a little too demonic, but sometimes you can be too subtle. But it definitely does sound closer to how he sounds in Revenge of the Sith.

Ooh that hologram sound is great! I’ll try it with that. I’ll come up with a different way to mask the gaps then if normal static wouldn’t fit.
