The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread

Great ideas, Peter Pan! I’m especially a fan of the third one. It recontextualizes Jar Jar in an interesting way without needing to change his character at all. You could make the battle the opening scene right after the crawl.

Really don’t like the first though. Maul having a button for the shield generators on his wrist is dumb on several levels, as it Qui-Gon sacrificing himself to deactivate it some Obi-Wan can kill Maul instead of just killing him himself.

Really, it’s all in a name that won’t be uttered onscreen, so it doesn’t really matter. My current story is that the planet is named Ajan Kloss and Onderon is the same planet, much like how I have Jakku as another name for Tatooine. In Jakku’s case I’d like to make it explicit onscreen if possible, however, as it’s a location relevant to the rest of the Saga.

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

My laptop has been shedding silica gel all semester and now one bead finally got stuck in the headphone jack, so I can’t listen to the audiobook I need for class, and when I try installing it on my phone it says my Audible library is empty. Honestly, fuck Audible. I’ve been very underwhelmed by their service. They charge you a membership fee like it were a streaming service but only let you have one book per month. What a fucking scam.

After messing around I managed to change the sky color on Pasaana to green. I could also go for a deeper cyan, maybe blue, but other colors would just create too many artifacts. After some fine-tuning the resulting grade looked great to me, although it would require fixing the lightsaber color in a few shots. However, I don’t really feel confident in using it. It feels like not enough and also cheap reusing the same gimmick as Onderon by recoloring something already there. It kinda makes me wanna work on my tropical Pasaana idea, but I know right now I don’t have the motivation to dive head-deep back into the editing room again, and even before didn’t have the will to learn all the CGI shenanigans it would take to add palm trees.

Btw I redid all the purple for Onderon in a different program with better color grading tools, and it looks fantastic in most shots. Alas there are still many others where it’s too yellow to recolor properly. Not sure what to do about those.
