- Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers.
I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to disagree with you guys on the issue with Palpatine’s lightsaber. Although it does seem weird that he would need one, I think it really adds to his character and makes him more menacing. When you look at him, you would think that he is a feeble old man that does not have much skill in combat, but then he takes out his lightsaber and it suddenly makes him seem like a much bigger threat. Yoda follows the mindset of not using his powers for attack, but Palpatine seems like the kind of person who would do the opposite. There are many situations I could imagine him using his saber, especially when he gets confronted by Mace Windu and the other Jedi.
With Yoda on the other hand, I totally agree with you.
Interesting! I wonder if there will be anyone who gets their hands on a print of the overseas version. I bet it might end up being useful for a fan edit or something of the sort.
Here are my pictures! The perspective is off on a few of them because I was unable to screen-match them while I was there. I also loved the color correction on your pics, so I tried on a few of mine!
Mos Eisley overlook
Path to Jabba’s Palace
Another angle from that scene
Me messing around with an action figure
Shot with my Sandcrawler model in front of the mountains (It was really hard to position my model, so I’m pretty sure the scene was shot, and then a picture of the model was placed over it in the actual film)
R2-D2 Canyon (I photoshopped a picture of him into this one just like you did with the one of him in the dunes)
This post was really cool! Coincidentally, I also visited these locations just a few months ago during my Spring break! I have some pictures and I will be posting them soon 😄
I really hope someone ends up finding that song. They have it on YouTube but the quality is crap.
Also… Has anyone tried contacting Harmy and asking him about it?
So, I am working on a few projects, and I have come to a stage where I have to remove the music from a few scenes in the OT. I have the soundtracks from all of the films. I have looked at a few tutorials on removing music using Audacity, but none of my attempts have been that successful. Does anyone here know of any reliable program/method I can use to pull this off?
I am really looking foreword to seeing what this project will look like when it’s done! Here are most of my ideas:
•Use original Lucasfilm logo
•Make opening crawl less “polished”
•Restore “Finn will be fine” and “Kylo finds the Falcon” scenes
•Snoke should be a person with makeup/prosthetics (like the original Emperor from TESB)
•Planet explosions should be redone
•Lightsaber + laser effects should be redone to simulate a hand animated style
•Elaborate shots should be simplified.
Examples: Falcon chase on Jakku, Maz’s Castle falling apart, Air battles, exc.
•Simplify holograms (if possible)
•Remove Rey’s “stop holding my hand” line
•Add a “choppy” effect to CGI creatures to simulate stop-motion
•Add subtle errors to ship battles (matte lines + perspective issues)
I think they did a good job creating the planets in the prequels. They had some pretty creative ideas overall. The trees on Kashyyyk were really cool, I liked the rock formations on Geonosis, and the cities inside the sinkholes on Utapau was neat. I also think they did a good job making Tatooine still feel like the same planet from A New Hope. Another thing I really liked was the soundscape of Courisant. The constant ambience of the ship flying past sounded really cool and it made the location feel realistic.
My favorite change is also the sandcrawler close up shot. I’m pretty sure they used the original model, and it’s all practical effects!
I can just imagine Adywan checking back in on this thread in the future and seeing all this crazy stuff…
Aww, this happened just a few days after I made my first post on this thread… Really bad timing on my part.
A bit late, but great job on the hanger! I am looking forward to seeing how you will make a snow effect on the floor. This entire project is turning out great and I can’t wait to see the final product 😄
P.S. This is my first post on this site!
