The sounds are entirely unfinished, as I haven’t really isolated the dialogue or completed the saber sound effects. This is a proof of concept more than anything.
I like it. The only problem of course is that they constantly change location from one shot to another.
I think we should put other scenes between different parts of the duel. If we don’t want Yoda going to Palpy, though, it’s really complicated, because apart from Yoda meditating we don’t have other scenes that could happen during the duel on Mustafar.
I like the music and the sound effects.
PS: Or we could… I don’t know, maybe add some dissolve effect between different parts of the duel. If done well, it could show the passing of time.
This is what you can do with Palpatine and Yoda: make their battle mental.
If someone can get shots of Palpatine, or at least a robed figure, meditating, then Yoda and Palpatine’s battle can be a mental one where they project each other into each other’s minds. Thus you can cut to, say, the various shots of Yoda concentrating in pain spliced with the actual physical battle footage. Maybe use shots of Yoda collapsing in pain during the Jedi purge when he loses to Palpatine. Could overlay the Palps vs Yoda footage with a green or red filter to show it’s in the mind. A REALLY good editor could go one step further and add a ghostly affect to either Yoda or Palps to have them fighting Luke vs Kylo style.
Or if that’s too complex, then just reorder the Jedi purge to be happening DURING the Obi-Wan/Anakin battle to make it extra tragic that it all collapses at once.
