Cheers for the mention Hal. Didn’t think I contributed apart from giving a bit of hopefully constructive feedback and my perspective on a few matters. The people to take all the credit are of course yourself and those brilliant editors and FX people at the top of your list of mentions that put some solid time and effort into this project.
So a big THANK YOU to you all again:
-Hal9000 (project lead and final editor) - did I get that right? 😛
-NeverarGreat (Visual and audio effects)
-Sir Ridley (Visual and audio effects)
-Jackpumpkinhead (Visual effects)
-Sherman (Cover artwork)
-MalàStrana (English and French subtitles)
I can’t wait to watch v2 (hopefully before TLJ but don’t stress man 😉 ). Just actually finished watching R1 for the second time (first time since the cinemas) and so very much in SW mood at the moment. I already liked the movie but really enjoyed it the second time round and think it’s a great addition to the SW universe despite a couple of minor issues (pretty much the oversimplified convenient lever pulling plot devices at the end).
I find R1 actually adds a lot of extra detail and depth to the established OT lore without being in your face while also being a little more grounded in realism rather that the force automatically solving everything. I’m not sure why it gets such a hard time around here, I find it to be a great movie and really buy into the characters and the struggle.
Anyway, getting a bit of topic there…thanks again Hal and everyone else for all your hard work and I look forward to checking out the finished edit.
