Were you able to get a decently clean version of that logo somewhere? I tried a while back but settled for my own crappy cutout attempt.

Hell yeah, thank you so much! Love that logo design.

ITC Serif Gothic, it’s what they’re using for Episode names officially now.

Inkscape is a good program to use to make workable png images from even low res jpgs.

I’d be really interested to see your version, in terms of the edits, it is pretty much exactly what I wanted if I were to try my own.

After a few months taken to reflect further on the movie, I can now present a, hopefully, final Version 2 of my edit. Below are the changes I’ve made for v2. I think the result is much more “polished” now. I have an MP4 available for those who would like one, and will have a DVD5 soon.

• Cut BB-8 spinning around to get Finn’s attention before showing him the recording of Rey
– Also cut Finn thanking BB-8 for recording that moment, as a hand can be seen moving BB-8. Scene now ends on Finn’s thoughtful face looking at the transmitter, hard cut to black as he opens the locker and tries to leave.
• Kept little casino character using BB-8 as a slot machine, but cut the belching. This is necessary because later we hear BB-8 rolling around with change in his innards.
• Cut clothes iron “landing scene”, now cuts from mutiny to deleted infiltration scene
• Infiltration scene lacks long room with Ralph Ineson following our heroes suspiciously. This removes the unfinished roof effect as well as the man moving BB-8 around. Also cut exchange between Stormtrooper and Finn in the elevator. Now Finn straightens the clothes of DJ and Rose, puts a waste basket on BB-8’s head, and the scene resumes as in the movie, on the long shelf next to the elevators with the black droid spotting them.
• Movie ends as in theatrical release. As much as I wanted to end on the Falcon shot and include a mid-credits broom boy, it just doesn’t work out. The ending is too fast.

Version 3, the absolute final thing I’m doing with this, is available now.

I’ve used poppasketti’s fantastic edit in Snoke’s throne room as well as pleasehello’s transition from Luke mourning.

I think the elevator scene with a stormtrooper recognizing Finn is a fantastic idea. It shows that the First Order is a dictatorship with a propaganda machine that kept Finn’s defection a secret from its troops. The dialogue itself isn’t bad either. There’s tension, there’s humour. The thing is… Tom Hardy just botched it. Sorry, but his delivery is awful. I bet that’s the real reason they cut the entire sequence.

Totally agree. It would’ve been a little interaction that would help humanize stormtroopers more. I think that whole interaction would have been fine if that Stormtrooper just had an average American accent. I think redubbing him is totally doable with a decent voice actor. I think the butt slap could be cut too, but some people might like that.
