The Clone Wars: Refocused - A new holistic approach inspired by the Mandalorian [SEVENTEEN EPISODES RELEASED (+watchlist for the remainder)]
Time

I think I just reacted to the fact that the word inspection is used both by the station commander “…squared away for inspection” and Obi-Wan speaking to Cody “How goes the inspection?”, and Cody speaking to the battle droid “We need to inspect the base all the same”.

You could also use both words in the intro text “Rex inspecting facilities during his patrol” etc.

I should point out though, that English is not my first language, so I’ll defer to your judgement in the matter 😃

About the droids reporting 4 clones escaped; it didn’t bother me at all, and if it bothers many members here I’m sure we can find a droid saying the word “three” or “some” somewhere in the series to paste in.

The blue text mentions Rex “patrolling” facilities, but shouldn’t it be “inspecting”?

I feel the “Two weeks later” could use a second or two more black screen before the visuals of the next scene start. Also perhaps surge of music just before this (as we focus on Hevy’s face) to further the idea that 99’s words have landed.

Other than that I was very pleased with everything - it felt contained and better than the three original episodes

I also hate the PT droids, and have cut their voices as much as possible. You might have spotted a couple of ‘roger rogers’ removed from that clip already, and there’re more in the full episode. You do need to put up with their voices when they’re carrying important dialogue, but I’m getting rid of as much trash as possible.

There are audio editors, like Audacity, that can change the pitch of a sound without affecting the speed and vice versa (often used by guitar players for practice). Perhaps lowering the pitch by a few percent will make the battle droids sound less ‘cartooney’?

Info & Idea: Editing '2010: The Year We Make Contact'
Time

I was watching 2010 the other day, and though of a few things for a fan edit project.

I love the film as is, and I don’t feel it really needs any alterations; however there are a few ideas to help it be a little closer in tone to 2001, yet still have it retain its own identity. Pretty much all of these ideas involve the audio rather than the picture, with one exception.

 

1: The 80s score sounds a bit dated. So changing to classical music (preferably lesser known works than 2001, and more Khachaturian to fit the Soviet scenes) for certain scenes might make a difference. Any suggestions welcome.

2: We have sound in space in this film which was not present in 2001, and could be removed for exterior shots.

3: I never liked the sound of Floyd’s narration; it sounds like it has a lot of reverb and was recorded in another room than the mic. Also I think there is a lot more narration than necessary. So I would edit the narration length down, and to filter it so it sounds like he is talking over the radio and have them played over exterior space-travel shots.

4: I never really liked the “Bowman visits wife & mother on earth” shots; and I’m considering cutting them altogether.

 

Any thoughts?

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

For Lando, maybe it’s possible to increase his presence in the film by using his voice in some places (offscreen, over radio etc) from his large body of radio plays and voice acting for games.

Billy Dee Williams voiced Lando in all of the following:

Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back radio adaptation
Dark Empire audio drama
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Rebels series
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront I

That way his limited screen time will be made up for a little bit? Thoughts?
