Hey all! It’s been… a long time. I have checked in from time to time to see how things are going but for the most part haven’t been participating here for some time.
For those who don’t remember me, I produced some of the most of expanded score edits of the STAR WARS films at the time. Most of my work has been superseded by new releases and other edits–except I’d argue my Episode I edit which is still top notch haha.
Anyway, I have returned because I would like to see if anyone would like to assist me. I’m noticing that others have done similar projects, but I would like to try something a bit different.
I would like to produce an audio-drama esque adaptation of the unproduced Colin Trevorrow script to Episode 9.
I recently worked with a small team to produce an audio-drama adaptation of the early script to JURASSIC PARK and Episode 9 always felt like the right next step (seeing as Colin was involved in both franchises it also seems like a fun a little connection not to mention I might actually be able to get this to him once its done as he’s paid attention to some of my previous projects…)
Also my familiarity with John Williams, his scores, and especially the scores to STAR WARS I think will lend some really exciting nuance to the music score for this. Already I’ve mapped out a handful of new themes or adaptations that I’d like to do musically.
(If you’re interested in what I did before, you can view it here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIACT8MUZTgOwb0OMwdeGkWO-E13m6gpX )
With the JURASSIC PARK audio-drama, I took the script, adapted it to be a narrator’s voice, a friend got in touch with fans from around the community to voice the characters, I then took that audio, with the narration, and edited it together to create a framework. I added in ambience / sfx and then scored it.
The guy who runs JURASSIC TIME took concept art, storyboards, art work, and had new artwork made and produced the videos you see.
All in all, it was an amazing project that I had so much fun doing and I would honestly like to do it again.
Here’s what I think I’ll need:
-I’m currently re-working the script to be a narrator’s voice. Like JPRC, I can read the narration (unless there’s some one who has some GREAT inflection and tone).
-I would like to get at least a handful of actors to play several roles (possibly) and I’d like to work with them a little to really craft the performances. Perhaps nothing too crazy, but I’m honestly tempted to record the lines and provide them so people have an idea of where they should be emotionally and such?
IF this doesn’t work out, I may also try to make this like the audio books where I do character voices… but I think having actual voice actors would make it special.
-I’ve spoken with an artist about using some of their work–but I also want to use the concept art that’s out there. I’m also interested in any other unique approaches or ideas or artists who want to contribute.
-I have a large collection of SFX from star wars but the ST has its own specific sounds and It wouldn’t hurt to get a good collection of these if anyone has these (from video games even?)
I’d appreciate any assistance with this. My goal is to try and get through the script and have it broken down into “chapters.”
