So I’ve been toying with this idea for a little bit. I haven’t begun work on it, but one of the things I find very interesting is how sound is … so illuminating. I love to listen to the complete scores and imagine the scenes in my head and play out the music as I drive to/from work (I have a long drive).
But it occurs to me… there might be another way…
I was thinking:
What if I made an edit of each STAR WARS using the rips of the films audio, the deleted scenes audio, and melding them into a singular extended audio cut. The video for the most part would be very tedious to cut together due to the differences in quality, but the sound–for most–would be seemless… so I wondered…
How interesting would it be to cut in the Mon Mothma sequences into Episode III?
How cool would it be to recut ANH to have all the deleted scenes?
And what of the myriad of other deleted scenes from each film?
I have my session edits and sfx from for each film so … rebuilding sound fields would actually be quite easy…
Another thought would be to create a sort of “Radio Story” presentation in so much that the films could be broken into chapters. Each chapter mini-prologue and perhaps a little “entr’acte” before it and a “intermission” after it.
Would this be a project of interest? Would people be interested in hearing this? I’m going to be making the project for myself and a friend, but if others were interested, I might put more time into it and begin working on longer more elaborate edits such as I mention.
If something like this has been done before, i’d love to hear it! Save me the work heh
Suggestions would be welcomed 😃
Is it not sad that in this time, we are more surprised by acts of love than acts of hate?
