Anyone got a copy of the leaked storyboards (t-bone's cutscenes mention) from the Obi-Jango fight and Mace-Jango fight? I always assumed those two sequences we're shorted because of the leak and the Droid factory sequence was added to make up for the loss. That was one of the big spoilers during those times, some grandfather "found" them in a trashcan and gave them to his kid... at least that was the story. They we're blue pencil drawings from what i remember.

Another thing, wasn't there an alternative version with Anakin's hand covered in Bacta during the wedding scene?

The leaked storyboards can still be found online but not in a high enough resolution to make them usuable.

on another note, can anyone tell me the easiest way to split this movie up into You-tube size chunks?

Any notable omissions you wanted to add but didn't have the material?

As for the you-tube version, if you've got a fully rendered out version, on a mac quicktime can be used to cut it up into under 10 minute chunks.

Okay, so I was thinking about the project a few minutes ago [in the shower no less.] and I thought of something. Now I know it's a tad late for suggestions but wouldn't it have been a good idea to present the project mostly in a 'picture in picture' kind of way?

I see how this could be a plus in that it might make things less jarring in places people have mentioned and help people keep total track of what is going on. [the movie proper never stops rolling] Also when there are moments where you want something fulscreen [or close to] you could have that moment in the film proper playing out in the smaller window. Might also be good for comparison sequences.

Now I'm not critiquing the project in any way, I just thought it seemed like a good idea to help things flow a little better. I actually haven't finished d/loading this monster yet but I watched a few snippets and was impressed that you had things I'd never seen or even heard of before.

any thoughts davey?

Actually I do have one critique and that is that instead of removing portions of the film, I'd much rather have an explanation as to why said segments don't work so well. I understand that if you don't have the resources there's nothing you can really do in that sense. I'm just putting that out there.

Btw, sorry I came too late to the party. I just went back and read 7 pages of comments and I probably could have helped you out with a few things. I'm kicking myself now for not having done that.

The PiP idea, Johnny, is one to think about. However, I don't really think it is for DVD. I know a lot of the new HD releases (HD-DVD only?) have IMEs (In-Movie Experience) which is somewhat of an audio/visual commentary with content playing out in a smaller window. I think that would be the ideal way to present some of these projects, but they just don't work on DVD due to the bitrate and resolution limitations.

Having said that, Daveytod, what say you on a high bitrate, high resolution DVD-R sized XVID with the content rendered in as PiP?

Just downloaded the NTSC DVD yesterday from a.b.sw - Nice work, but there were some errors that this kind of thing turns into "truths" - for one thing, the book of the mission to ANSION was "The Approaching Storm", not "Cloak of Deception" (it has a pic of Valorum and Qui-Gon on it for pete's sake, how could you think it took place just before AOTC?!) . You put a lot of BTS pics in the wrong scenes - like Threepio's first scene, you have BTS pics of him in the full suit, but he originally shot that scene in the puppet suit and they bluescreened him in at ILM wearing the full suit during post (The BTS pics were from the end of the funeral sequence). Then later, in the garage, you have a whole sequence of Anthony Daniels with the puppet suit that should have been placed, at least partly, in Threepio's first scene, as well as in the garage. The scenes with Padme and Beru in the kitchen are also placed in the wrong spot, these were supposed to be after Anakin left to find his mother but before he got back. Also, lots of flash frames at the cuts - I don't know how you missed all those. Finally, I honestly don't know how European audiences can tolerate the PAL speed-up, it ruins the flow of the movie - all the timing of the actors is shot even more than in the movie at its normal speed

Ever since hearing of a similar feature on HD-DVD I've thought that would be the best way for a project such as this. Unfortunately I have no idea how to achieve such an effect.

D'oh!! How the HELL did I make that schoolboy mistake??? The worst thing is, I'm a huge EU fan, with nearly every book ever published. That's a cock-up thats gonna haunt me for sure

I've placed these scenes where they are simply to lump them all in one place, for example, having an entire 3PO segment, rather than going into the history when we first see him.

Me neither, but if I ever do another one (and I'm not sure that I will), I know how to avoid it.

In case you guys mistook my meaning. I wasn't saying do it as an added feature ala HD but rather simply a permanent burned in kind of thing. Not saying it'd be easy but I thought presentation wise it'd help. That way there could always be some element of the movie proper on screen at all times.

I guess you're probably sick of AOTC right now tho

there seems to be a lot of confusion over this. fanedit.org got the letter too. there seemed to be some misunderstanding though, and lucasfilm is backing fanediting it seems, but for some reason they didnt approve of this one. i dont know if they are confused about its content or not. curious

That's because Episode II is the greatest film ever ever. And LFL knows it. They got to protect their money-maker.

the worse thing is the letter cited me as using Episode III .

The DVDHolocron has received no such letter, and the entry still remains for this release. daveytod apparently edited the page a little, although I'm thinking about reverting some of his changes, I don't see the need to remove so much info as I have received no such letter.

As a matter of fact, it is the current Featured DVD.

Re: UNAUTHORIZED USE OF STAR WARS COPYRIGHTS AND TRADEMARKS

Dear Sir:

Lucasfilm and its affiliated entities (collectively “Lucasfilm”) are the exclusive owners of all rights in and to the major motion pictures Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (the “STAR WARS Films”). Those motion pictures and the characters and unique elements related thereto (the “STAR WARS Copyrights and Trademarks”) are protected by the copyright and trademark laws of the United States and other nations.



It has come to our attention that you are using STAR WARS Copyrights and Trademarks without Lucasfilm’s authorization. Specifically, we refer to the production and distribution of the film, “The Clones Revealed” (the “Film”). Based on your description of the Film (see attached) your production consists of a copy of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith compiled with various other material created and owned by Lucasfilm. In addition, the packaging and promotional materials draw extensively on STAR WARS Copyrights and Trademarks. As such, there is a high risk of consumer confusion regarding the provenance of the Film. It is likely that a consumer would think that the Film is authorized, affiliated or endorsed by Lucasfilm. Therefore, although Lucasfilm appreciates your enthusiasm for the STAR WARS Films, we are unable to authorize or license you to use STAR WARS Copyrights and Trademarks in this manner.



Therefore, you are hereby put on formal notice that the Film constitutes trademark and copyright infringement and unfair competition. By this letter, we request that you immediately cease and desist from any further unauthorized use of STAR WARS Copyrights and Trademarks including, without limitation, distribution of the Film, and that you immediately provide us written assurance that you will comply with the requests set forth in this letter no later than Tuesday, August 7, 2007.

Nothing in this letter shall be construed as a waiver of any claim at law or in equity which we may have against you or any other party, each of which is expressly reserved.



Sincerely,

Business Affairs, (Antipiracy)

Apart from the glaring mistake that shows they never did their research (".....your production consists of a copy of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith...."), it seems they're only worried about 'consumer confusion'....in other words, the possibility that people might mistake this for an official lucasfilm product, when obviously I have absolutely no affiliation with Lucasfilm or its subsidaries. Quite a compliment when you think about it.

Anyway, since distribution seems to be the major sore point the torrent at demonoid is down (although I haven't been able to figure out how to remove the one at the bay).

Also since it appears that the page at dvd holocron is what caught their attention (a screenshot of the page was attached to their email), I have also removed the links back to here......this site seems to have slipped under their radar and I'd like to keep it that way

Still, all of this makes me a little curious about how judicious we ought to be with our uses of the Fox and LFL logos in our projects. But that is a topic for another thread.

I couldnt even work out how to delete the 'bay torrent, so I guess this is still out there for those that want it....for now

I have actually been back in touch with the antipiracy team and informed them that I deleted the torrent links from the DVD Holocron and that I would no longer discuss the distribution of this movie and their response was that they now consider the matter closed.....so I guess I got away with it!
