<em>REY NOBODY</em> - A Collaborative Thread

Just popping in to say that V4 of Ascendant will be here very soon. And to check in on the state of this effort, for the eventual ‘Rey Nobody’ companion version.

I’m ready for the pieces whenever they are.

As it has been, Ascendant’s Rey Nobody alternate version doesn’t seek anything radical beyond facilitating the removal of her being made into Palpatine’s granddaughter, and I’ll leave more ambitious ideas such as her killing her own parents to other projects.

Thanks, Dom and RL. You’re the best.

The Force Awakens: Starlight (V1.1 Released!)

Nobody asked for it but here’s a tweak of it.

It is a time of despair.
Luke Skywalker, sworn
to rebuild the legendary
Jedi Order, has vanished.

In his absence, the
evil FIRST ORDER has
risen from the ashes
of the fallen Empire
and claimed supremacy
over worlds beyond the
fragile New Republic.

Desperate to quell this
rising threat, the Republic
has commissioned the pilots
of a covert RESISTANCE to
find the last Jedi and restore
hope to the darkening stars…

Oh, depends. I don’t really have passive or invitational time. I’ll try to get some work done on it tonight. The good thing is that it’s all cut out for me at this point.

I need to readjust the Italian language track to fit from V3’s changes, and the commentary track. And finish adjusting the subtitle tracks. Then the chapter stops. Then I can start to bake it all together and distribute.

Star Wars Episode II: The Approaching Storm (Released)

Glad to hear that you enjoyed it. While it is very much a final product by this point, thank you for the feedback. I see what you mean about Dex, though I’d trimmed the opening to remove the awkwardness and weird CG shot of their hug. The kiss scene is imperfect but has been revisited a number of times to the point I’m okay with it being this fan edit’s “Vaseline on the landspeeder shot.”

Which other fan edits did you go with for your watch?

The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)

Unless I wanted to do away completely with the CG creatures in the movie, I’d need to maintain a sense of consistency. I want to use the SE “look sir droids” main shot and the new shot of the speeder approaching Mos Eisley. And if I did remove all CG creatures I’d be stuck with OOT shots that are among the toughest in the movie.

Just saw a quote on Imgur which is just as applicable to Fanedits:

“Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk.”

-Henry Jenkins, Director of Media Studies at MIT, 1997.

Yeah, it’s the modern cinematic equivalent of organic development of stories through retelling.

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

Most likely not simultaneously. If Dom or RL can chime in about where the Rey Nobody components are in their progress, they’d be better able to tell you. I haven’t been involved with that, but have just baked their part into the timeline and released it as an alternate version. But hey, if it’s all ready too then simultaneous would be great!
