I feel like I have to counterbalance this with my own view which is that I concur with what has been said before: those two shots, as they are currently, don’t flow from one to the other, particularly the forest is not apparent in the castle shot. I like the 3 shot one better, although it isn’t perfect. But from what I remember, most planets get like 3 establishing shots in this movie (or at least several) anyway

reylo?

How’s the progress on Rey’s eyes?

Haven’t had the chance to work on them yet, since I’m still trying to figure out the Mustafar intro.

Speaking of, I realized that the light source in the pan-down is coming from the left while our other shots have the light coming from the right. Also in the pan-down, the TIEs are on the left of the screen which would imply that they enter from frame left in any subsequent shot. Keeping these things in mind, here’s my take on the opening:

I also put some lava in what looked like a river in the forest flyover.

Since we know that the RO shot is very similar in its opening to this one, I don’t think anyone should mind if the beginning of the biomes shot is cut. This way the back of the shot is emphasized, a part that wasn’t in RO.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

This look beautiful Nev, honestly amazing work👍.

I personally still prefer the three shot (with the biomes shot used instead of the RO version). It has more locational clarity and much more ominous and atmospheric pacing to it. But they’re both great, I just slightly prefer the three shots establishment of the environment and the ensuing tension it creates with the build up to the kylo shot.

What if the order was flipped?

TIES in space
Vader’s Castle (Biomes)
Overhead of lava and trees
TIES above the forest

The Biomes shot doesn’t really leave room for three shots.

And, Nev, I like that, especially if it makes more lighting sense. Did you zoom into the Biomes shot a bit?

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

I was in a hurry looking at Nev’s most recent clip until now. I like the subtle touch of adding lava to the extreme right side of frame for poppasketti’s forest flyover shot!

Agreed 100%!

I have a VFX suggestion. The last shot of the ties flying over we see red and yellow laser shooting below??? I know it may sound a little silly but its an idea that popped in my head.

All my life as I looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never in my mind did I know where I was, what I was doing.

I agree. Would it be possible to add some lava (small line) in the center of the right frame, so it doesn´t slip under the audiences radar?

I imagine that being pretty tricky. I’m planning to sit down with Mustafar for what may be the last time tonight, and export something truly finalized.

Imo this is best version yet.

Agreed, brilliant as always, Nev! And I like the extra focus on the back lava river before that shot too - just have to resync the TIE sound FX.
