Puppets: Is the “clunk” sound effect of the puppets going to be added back in? I liked it. Either way, this footage blows my mind every time I see it.
If the puppeteers should also make sound effects is definitely the next question for this thing. Perhaps the clunk could be left in when the AT-AT gets hit? Obviously it isn’t a metal puppet, but if we threw in some other sounds, it might make it more obvious that they’re being made for dramatic effect from beneath the stage or whatever.
Luke could sing the Force Theme as he throws the fireball back! Or is that getting too meta? Lol.
It’s all looking really outstanding, RogueLeader. The only things I might still suggest - in the puppet show, could ThisIsCreation maybe toss the phrase “First Order” into the narration? Just to make it exceptionally clear that it’s them facing-off against Skywalker. (Just for the casual fans, ya know?)
And “Captain Hux” sounds really good so far! I can still hear a very slight lurch between “Captain” and “Hux”; but then, I’m looking for it, so I’d imagine most viewers wouldn’t catch it. Also, the other officers look over at him pretty much right as Kylo says “Captain.” (How do they know who Kylo is talking to before he calls out the name?) I wonder if it might flow a little better if Kylo starts his line just a split-second earlier, so that the others look over at him after Kylo calls him “Captain.” (“Oooh, buddy got demoted?? Haha, what a little squirt.”) And then I would suggest just cutting “Hux” entirely. “I sense unease about my appearance…Captain.” Everyone looks at Hux, Hux starts talking…I think the scene would still be accessible to the audience.
EDIT: I kind of agree with Cap about the new Mustafar shot…it doesn’t feel as dynamic as the surrounding footage. Maybe the shot could be sped up, so that it’s more of a flyover of the castle? Or would that throw off the TIE tracking too much? I need to rewatch Biomes I think…
