Could I get a link to the edit please?
Damn, sorry to hear. This definitely sounds like it would have been interesting, hope it can be remade some day!
I’d love to check this out!
That looks great! The masking on the city is definitely the biggest issue, otherwise this is pretty impressive!
Sure, I’d love to check it out!
That’s fair enough reason, lol
No problem! I can’t wait to see your results!
I personally feel a pure AI voice is a bit too robotic to work in the long run. I wonder how good results could be if you tried taking your recordings of the lines and used a software like RVC v2 to generate an AI voice that uses your delivery?
So Jar-Jar is a spot where my edit is going to be a bit different than a lot of other ones. I’m keeping more of him.
I have two reasons for this.
He’s the comic relief in a movie that’s very stagey, stuffy, and serious otherwise. So he does have a plot function, but more importantly he has a pacing function. It was just overused in the original and a lot of it wasn’t as funny as it needed to be.
Him being clumsy, which he was banished for, and then helping save the day by being clumsy and rejoining the Gungans is a good character arc. So we need to see him be a mess throughout the film so his clumsiness can pay off in the battle.
I personally feel like a lot of edits over cut Jar-Jar and the Gungans. My goal is to keep enough of both of them that they have a real presence in the story and an arc, without going over the top.
That’s a fair look at things. I do agree some edits overcut on him, to the point where it’s a wonder why keep him at all.
I just always felt that one gag drags on far too long as “Anakin warns him not to touch the beam > He goes to pick up a tool, getting his tongue caught > Oh no, the pod’s gonna start up soon but his hand is caught > Padme helps him out, being the only person not blind/deaf enough to somehow not notice him through the entire conundrum”
Hence my suggestion to try cutting it down to “Anakin warms him not to touch the beam, or else his hand would be numb > Oh no, his tongue got caught instead! How hilarious”, or even stopping the gag as he walks away with his hand stuck, since the audience could assume he eventually unstuck it offscreen, instead of Qui-Gon and Anakin just not caring about possibly maiming him.
Here’s an extended clip from TPM. This features some 3PO removal, masking, music replacement, moving shots around, cropping and panning, etc. Pretty much every trick up my sleeve.
The 3PO removal is pretty well done!
I personally would remove the jar jar antics though. At least heavily cutting it down to him getting his tongue numb. Him getting his hand stuck feels like the bit sorta dragging on far too long, with no real payoff.
I look forward to seeing this! Definitely looks promising!
I personally prefer the previous version. The noise on the newest one feels a bit too overbearing imo.
The CC looks great!
Again, this is some really impressive work! Really love edits like this that try to capture a whole new vibe from the films.
This is such a cool idea, can’t wait to see more! That Jango scene construction was pretty impressive
I’d love a link to this as well!
I’d be down to see the updated version!
Yea, as said, was mostly a quick mockup to visualize the idea, didn’t really put any effort into prettying up the audio lmao
Did a rough assembly (as in, basically no tweaks to the audio mixing), honestly, it seems like a pretty genius way to restructure this section.
That grade definitely looks a ton better! Love it!
The changes sound interesting! I’d be down to check out what you have
Ay! Can’t wait!
Intercutting between the escape from Naboo and Podrace is an interesting concept, definitely looking forward to seeing how it plays out in the full film. Sorta reminds me of how ANH was scripted and initially edited.
To keep continuity between the PT and OT, Luke should have a padawan rattail from the second half of ANH until ROTJ.
Add in Palpatine explaining, in complete and thorough detail, the cloning process causing him to return in Rise of Skywalker.
Don’t want the plothole of having to fill it in with your imagination, after all.
