I’ll have to check it out over lunch! It sounds like there may be some establish-shot fodder for TROS:A, which could be useful in pumping the brakes a little.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

There are some amazing shots of the Executor-class Star Destroyer, including interiors. An amazing Skellig Michael shot, a very long Vaders Castle shot, along with a Tatooine flyover. As far as Ascendant is concerned I think that’s all that useful.

There’s also a shot of the torture chamber where Chewbacca is kept. It might work to have Rey see that when she senses Chewie is still alive.

Edit: speaking of which, does anyone know if “Vehicle Flythroughs” is getting more episodes? Two seems like a weird number to stop at, especially considering the description says it features “Some of the Star Wars films’ most iconic and beloved ships.”

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

That Vader castle part from Biome is amazing! i hope it gets implemented in this, and there are ships flying past the castle in it too!

Wow that Ahch-To shot is great, totally using it. Hopefully we got more from both of these series!

That is a more creative use for it than I ever had.

Agreed. Show the torture chamber and then perhaps do an echoey version of Chewie’s roar and perhaps the lines from Hux and Pryde from the now deleted scene. Have it be like an auditory Force vision I suppose.

Eh… Seems unnecessary for that moment.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I sure don’t get that impression from her onscreen facial expression in that moment.

Seems like something that could be done but probably shouldn’t.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Anyone know the best way to capture the stream in highest quality? That’d be the best staring point.

That Mustafar shot is great! Either from the front, or possibly from the side with some forrest comped in.

I can’t remember whether there were 2 or 3, but TIEs even go by. But I’m sure we could just have Poppasketti comp in his TIEs over whatever portion of the shot.

And hey, the shot can be as long as we’d like! Maybe I should mock up something just to set the desired length of that shot.

EDIT: Nevermind, the music is already timed perfectly. So the length is set, unless we want to replace one or both of the existing other shots.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’m with Hal on this one. I think it would feel weird to imply that Chewie has been tortured - but not actually see Chewie either way - and they Rey be all smiley and happy. Huge tonal clash.

Although, it might be cool just to hear an echoey Chewie roar in the distance when Rey senses him, to involve the audience a little more in the realization.

Yeah I hadn’t seen the scene in a while so I didn’t remember how it went exactly. But what you just said there is something I’d definitely be interested in mocking up. Something subtle.

EDIT: I am able to screen record all of these with Shadowplay for some good quality, might upload these to a drive if that’s allowed.

Jar Jar, I may have actually found some rips. I can share them later. Theoretically, that would be better quality than a screen capture. (We’ll see once I download them.)

This is really great stuff. The Hoth and Tatooine shots could be easily recolored to use as Pasaana shots. Vader’s Castle, of course. Perhaps even the forest shots as establishing shots of the new Rebel base planet?

I need to check this stuff out ya’ll are talking about, sounds like there is some useful material to insert to give some breathing room in this movie.

Nice Jar Jar, that would be helpful to get recorded and uploaded somewhere.

I might help with some of the editing work for the Vader Castle shots needed, but I havent backread far enough to know in what context it will be used for? (I assume its going to recontextualize the opening scene wherein Kylo grabs the wayfinder)

I believe there was a shot of the engines as well. You can cut to the exterior after the shot of Pryde, and then to the shot of the engines to imply they are on their way before it cuts back to Rey and crew.

This is the way.
