Seamlessly done Burbin! PM sent.
That little extra detail of the binary beacon is fantastic Nev!
Mate, how the hell do you get these ideas??
Regarding the Falcon shot, maybe I’m just an idiot, but I don’t see the issue with the angle of the cockpit between the TFA shot and the one from Empire… If it is noticeable to some, surely obscuring most of the behind the scenes shot with the glass and window frame would completely sell it. At least it does in my head… ¯\(ツ)/¯
They were visible in the OT, weren’t they? If not in focus. Is anyone aware of any edits done to the OT to highlight them better?
This is the only shot in the entire trilogy they are visible on camera. I’m not aware of any edits that feature them more prominently, though I would be very much in favour of any that could pull it off.
My vote would be against the inclusion of the Imperial March in ANH:R. Personally I find it overused enough in Star Wars stuff as is. The little motif given to the Empire throughout ANH is far better anyway, and doesn’t get enough recognition honestly. I would hate to see it missing from any scenes in the film. Each Star Wars film’s soundtrack generally has its own unique feel to it, at least to me. I associate the Imperial March much more strongly with the later two instalments of the trilogy… Hard to articulate into words exactly, but it just would feel out of place.
Luke stumbles over his answer to Yoda:
“Read them have you?”
“Well, I… uh…”
“Page-turners, they were not”
Seems to me like Luke didn’t want to admit he hadn’t read them, so he attempted to make some kind of excuse in his defence, but Yoda knew what he was trying to do and dismissed them.
That’s how I interpreted the short exchange in cinemas.
Minor bump… Just realised I had forgotten to mention this earlier in regards to your Palpatine’s office video, but I do really enjoy getting to hear fan-editors break down problematic scenes and explain their reasons for changes etc… I dunno, I guess especially with the prequels, learning someone else’s take on things that don’t work and how to address it really helps me approach my own attempts to edit with a different mindset.
So by all means, if you’re planning on doing more videos like this, I’d very much be interested! 😉
Probably part of the reason I’ve always been a sucker for the behind the scenes content of films more so than the actual film is just because I love learning about the hidden creative process and mentality behind things that isn’t always so obvious onscreen.
Your commentary on how you felt watching all of this unfold in cinemas is great as well! 😄
I’ve always loved reading members of this site’s stories about experiencing the prequels for the first time and I still continue to get a laugh out of it. 😆
I like the way you think DZ-330! However personally, my only concern with that order would be you lose the transition from Chewie howling to Kylo standing alone on the Death Star, which I would be really sad to see go. I just think it works quite well and was pretty impactful the first time I saw it in cinemas.
…corrections to what they believe.
Anyway, just discovered this thread… Some great ideas being bounced around! Would very much be interested in some WIP preview clips of any of the more major changes done to TROS. 😃
Great to hear from you again, Rodney-2187!
I would definitely be down for a workprint! Haven’t really contributed much as of yet, but I’ve certainly been following this edit’s progress closely.
testing out EbSynth:
Woah… Mate, that is neat! 😮
Just chiming in to ask… Did you manage to resolve the issues you were having with the Jedi voices scene CaptainFaraday? I’m so hyped to hear how it turned out! 😃
Can’t wait for the clip CaptainFaraday! 😄
Oh, what! How did I miss this! I was sure I’d checked every track on the OST, this is fantastic!
No problem. I look forward to seeing what you come up with, any issues just PM me and I’ll see if I can help out! 😃
Unfortunately it’s a unique music track and soundscape that I don’t think is available in “clean” audio.
Pretty sure the music during the Jedi voices scene has been released, I’ll have to recheck…
Do they sound the same as in ROTS?
I would assume not, seeing as to how he was like 6 years old back then. 😉
In ROTS, when Obi-Wan is telling Anakin about the assignment to spy on the Chancellor, he says, “We are at war, Anakin… a star war.”
P.S. I would also like a link to the latest version 😉
Nev said he’s taking a break from the computer for a few days so he might not get back to you…
Just in case anyone missed the post from earlier, the link to his latest workprint is the same Mega folder as all the most recent previous versions.
Dantooine was close to being featured in Rogue One, concept art was even done, IIRC.
Seeing as to how The Mandalorian drew some elements from abandoned concepts for the films, (Moff Gideon’s TIE with landing gear was done for TFA, among other things) I could certainly see Andor doing the same. I mean, if the work has already been done for designing the planet, why not use it?
