Star Wars Episode I: Age of the Jedi (WIP Phantom Menace Edit)
Time

As of now, an hour and 25 minutes. Though I haven’t quite looked it completely over for pacing, continuity errors, all that stuff, that’s how it is as of now.

On a somewhat related topic, I think I’m about comfortable with sending the edit over to a few people for feedback, if anyone’s interested, shoot me a PM, I’ll try rendering it out here in a bit.

Uncorrected mistakes or unfixed issues of the 2019 (Maclunkey) Original Trilogy release?
Time

I’m not exactly sure if it’s relevant to the thread, but something that’s been unfixed since 77: The laser blasts and lightsabers don’t mesh with the rest of the saga, as well as the noticeable jumpcuts and lack of startup for lightsabers, as well as the saber wobbling all about in one scene during Luke’s training aboard the Falcon during the Disturbance in the Force scene (It even appears to be misaligned with the handle).

So I’ve been considering whether or not I should obscure Sidious’ face when talking with the Federation. Since it’d make sense for him to hide his identity from them incase one babbles. I’ve had a few thoughts on how I should go about it:

  1. Pixelate his face

Pixelated

  1. Blur his face

Blurred

(Original for comparison)

I’d like to hear what everyone else thinks would be best

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (Silent Edit WIP)
Time

I’m trying to think of a better title for this edit currently, “The Phantom Menace Silent Fan Edit” is a bit of a mouthful, and pretty… bland.

My current thoughts for the actual film are to not have a subtitle, instead just calling it “Star Wars”, but it’d be nice to have something to call it.

If anyone has any ideas, feel free to drop them!

STAR WARS: Episode I - THE ANCIENT LORE [Episode I Remade /Proj started: 2014] (WIP)
Time

Was finally able to see v1 of this edit, gotta say it’s one of my favorite TPM edits! The Trade Federation were actually pretty intimidating in their early speeches, and I really liked the rearranged opening (which sadly seems like it’ll be nixed in v2). Most of the Sentence mixing is also surprisingly well, and the addition of Dooku ties things alot better.

My biggest issues were probably in the latter half, (especially the final battle), some of the rearranged parts felt a bit odd, a few plot holes came up, and some minor inconsistencies in what was seen before (Sidious suddenly not having his face blurred in the latter half), as well as the occasional shoddy grammar or weird subtitled line, and a fair amount of overlapping music sorta took me out at times sadly. And a really, REALLY minor nitpick: the subtitles aren’t in the font used in ANH, or the theatrical versions of the PT.

I really look forward to v2, seeing as almost all of my big issues look like they’ll be tweaked. Despite it all it’s probably one of the most impressive, and one of my favorite TPM edits!

Also I really dig Qui-Gon’s new purple saber.

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (Silent Edit WIP)
Time

Just an idea I had for an edit that I’ve started on, and will probably finish since I have a few good ideas. It’s The Phantom Menace, but with a slightly adjusted story, a silent film look, and a soundtrack made primarily of OT music

Here’s a preview of it so far (Note, haven’t rewritten the crawl yet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0w3fR63UZA

Some minor changes:
-Padme is the Princess, not the Queen
-Naboo is Alderaan
-A few things have been renamed (The Jedi Council is now the Jedi High Council, thought it sounded more fantasy/cheesy. For the same reason the Galactic Republic is the Republic Galactica now.)
-The Trade Federation have become The Galactic Federation, an organization of disgruntled slave traders after Alderaan’s push to outlaw slavery

I have a few ideas in mind for new character arcs/twists, but for now I’m trying to think of how I should handle the Gungans.

Update: After a bit of a break, I have continued work on the edit. Currently still replacing the French audio with the new “Alien Language”. About halfway done with that. In the meantime, I’ve done a quick edit for a “what if?” of the Negotiations part, which I have cut in the actual edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK4TcTqIFMs

Ok in vegas, you just use the slicer to isolate a small portion of audio. Then right click the clip and click reverse. The audio will play in reverse. Might be interesting. And good luck with finishing the edit however you want to do it!

uh, I know how to reverse audio, I’ve been using VEGAS for a good couple years now. Just mainly worried about the results, how obvious it could be and all that. Though I will try a quick test to see if it’d be workable.

Did you plan to do trailer to your edit ?

eh, probably not, I’m not quite experienced in making trailers. I did plan on pairing the release with a video breaking down/explaining the changes I made for the edit though. (Though, not even sure if I’ll do that. who knows, it still isn’t done yet, lol)

You can even say it’s like a secret Sith language or something to keep people from easedropping.

I like some of your ideas here, I’m interested in seeing where you go with this edit and if you’ll make others.

Gonna steal that explanation, lol. And thanks! I have thought of doing Episodes II and III (was working on a rough II edit before beginning on this one, actually), though the ideas I have for them are pretty sparse compared to The Phantom Menace, aside from the typical “remove cringe lines/Darth Vader” approach. Especially AOTC, which re editing would essentially be putting a band-aid on a bullet wound in my opinion.

A few other projects I’ve considered/started were a 3 in 1 of the OT, changing a few plot points along the way, though I haven’t really gotten too far. One I might pursue further is combining the entire (Pre-Disney) Saga into one film about Vader, though that’s about it for the pre planning.
