That’s really useful insight Paja, thanks!
Anyway folks, apologies for the confusion last week, I was on holiday and didn’t get things quite right.
Either way, now for real:
Workprint released - s01e04 - Assassin (v2.0)
The episode formerly known as Cloak of Darkness.
It’s a trimmed and polished version of the trimmed and polished original edit, with a few suggested tweaks such as reordering of the opening scenes, tighter dialogue, and slightly tighter characterisation. In context we’re interrogating Nute Gunray to get Grievous’ location, which makes it far more compelling than the original as it ties into what we’ve established as the key thrust of the first half of season one, and will be paid off next episode.
I’m interested in your feedback as ever!
All actual edits are final, but I’m still just calling this a workprint for now, as I need to source a few more bits of audio:
- Ahsoka shouting “Assassin” at Ventress when she ignites her blades against her (I can probably source this from the actual episode originally called Assassin)
- Anakin saying “Ahsoka” softly, to replace “I’m sorry Master”/“It’s OK, Snips”, becuase I don’t feel like ‘Snips’ is quite right in that context.
- A slightly better fitting (more final/punctual) “You” for Ventress’ “Skywalker’s not here to save you.”
Shouldn’t take long to finish off, though if any of you know of good sources of that audio I’d be appreciative.
As an aside, with the news that Hayden might appear in the Ahsoka show, I guess the fire’s really lit under me to keep the pace up for this show now!
