So this is my first fan edit. Actually, I should say it will be my first fan edit. It's a saga edit from Anakin Skywalker's point of view. That means the only scenes that will be used is ones that include Anakin/Vader (well, there will need to be a few additional expository scenes without him). This will help to not only reduce the runtime, but to also accomplish the main goal of the edit: to have a film that focuses solely on the tragedy of Anakin. It will start on Tatooine in Episode II, and follow chronologically through Episode VI. There will be no flashbacks.
The problem is, I won't be working on this for awhile. If I had the time and equipment, I could start at anytime, for I know exactly what I'm going to do. As is, the start date is estimated at maybe a year from now. So, the question is, why did I make this thread? Well there are two reasons:
Archival purposes. I'm just really eager to get this thing on the record.
If someone else wants to take over. This is a little more ridiculous. A fan edit takes a lot of time, and I can't imagine someone would want to take that time working on a project that isn't “theirs” so to speak. The thing is though, I really wouldn't mind if someone else took over. The main reason I came up with this idea wasn't because I wanted to do an edit, but because this was a way I wanted to watch the saga. So, if there's anyone lurking out there who's been thinking about doing a saga edit, this is all yours.
Anyways, that's about it.
