Anyone want to take Mustafar to a WHOLE other level? Maybe someone will want to reach out to this YouTuber because this could change things completely >

Also getting a bit of aurebesh on the graffiti is a must:

I realize that you’re just presenting a humorous pic that dovetails with the topic at hand, however if that changed to Jyn Erso as a kid holding up her stormtrooper toy…that would be really awesome and could work in the edit. It would also tie into two of the characters in this movie being ex-stormtroopers.

I unironically think this cold work, i think it would convey it really well & star wars has always been full of references, so why not.

Except, isn’t the whole point of Rogue One that the people who got the plans aren’t really “special”? They’re not Jedi, or famous figures. They go on a secret mission, and they all die at the end, without anyone learning who they are. They’re just a bunch of regular folks who took a stand and achieved something incredible.

Rogue One is all about how the non-famous, forgotten people in history can still make a difference. The whole point of the movie is lost if Jyn Erso & Co. become legendary figures themselves, imo.

This was pretty much exactly how I pictured the scene in my mind too! I was actually using my “Force Hunting” mockup as a way of testing building up a battle soundscape. If you’d like, I could send over some of the sound effects I gathered for it - it’s a lot of audio from the different Battlefront games, mainly.

Yes please! Send whatever you’ve got, that’d be very helpful!

I don’t have a 5.1 setup, can anyone tell me if the Stormtrooper voices in this scene are just in the center channel or if they’re all over? Wondering how difficult it would be to remove them.

As for the graffiti stuff, I would have the focus be images that “tell” us what they mean. I’d also like to have some aurebesh for us nerds. But again, the images are the focus since most people wouldn’t know what it is or how to read it. Plus … images are better since these are relatively quick shots.

Agree, I feel the idea of iconic StarWars characters plastered on wall will degrade the film somewhat. I get Luke is a legend known throughout the galaxy but even the idea of directly seeing his image this was may feel a bit odd as a fan.

I don’t know if this is even possible, but I’m just gonna throw out the idea and see what all of you think of it. What if the(already amazing) Vader’s Castle flyby shot was modified to make the castle look crumbling and dilapidated? Maybe have lava overflowing on it’s base, or one of the large pillars has crumbled, I don’t know, something to show the 31 years of abandonment, I’m spitballing. Like I said, I have no idea if it’s possible, it’s just a thought I had and thought I’d share it with you all.

Use the Force, Joh Yowza.

I still like the two-shot option that Hal posted with the TIE fighters circling around the castle and across the forest. The Biome shot is set for Rogue One, even if it is color corrected to match the look of The Rise of Skywalker. I’d say stick with the two shot option over the Biome shot.

Which two shots do you mean?

At this point the idea is to use the modified Biomes shot and the TIEs sweeping over the trees. The biomes shot will as long as the volcano and older castle shot combined.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

That would be very possible if it were a simple zoom or panning shot, unfortunately it’s much more complicated so significant castle damage would probably have to be modeled in 3d and tracked onto the existing shot. Needless to say it’s a bit beyond my capabilities.

A thought I had was potentially just tracking some cracked/crumbly textures onto it, so at least it doesn’t look so pristine.

Yup, that would be better than nothing.

Even if it doesn’t pan out, no biggie. It’s clear that cultists have been living in the area for some time since they grew an entire forest, so we can always create our own canon in which they were the “caretakers” of Vader’s castle if you will.

Master Lawdog (EDIT: or whoever put that shot together), good idea and shot progression. I like the intro lava and color correction. The weak spot is the TIE’s fly-by at the castle being a little choppy/unpolished. Poppa’s TIE VFX here (the fly-by over the forest) is just polished enough to really not stand out against the theatrical VFX of the TIEs approaching Mustafar. But the castle TIE fighters are not quite there yet.

EDIT: The main issue is the movement as the TIE’s are in front of the castle. Also perhaps some cloud formations/mist in the foreground could balance this out and hide imperfections.

That was a thought I had too, just something to show the wear and tear of 30 years, but really I’m just spitballing ways to integrate some minor ideas from Trevorrow’s script. It’s not a big deal if it can’t be done.

Use the Force, Joh Yowza.

All these ideas are great but we seem to be going around in circles because there’s no one to actually execute the ideas being suggested?

I mean, that’s what most of this thread has been for the last several months, waiting for the old stuff like crackling sabers and fixed haircuts.

Not much to do while certain important things are being handled by others … so yeah … we just keep coming up with other things in the meantime. I wish I had some skill to try this stuff, lol.
