Snooker's Assorted Star Wars edit ideas
Time

You’re back??? Yeah!!!

Nice clip! I actually had another idea for this scene I’ve been sitting on for a while:

Maybe with a different piece of music, it could be played less seriously. Play up the absurdity of the situation.

  • Padme: “I love you”
  • Anakin looks back at her surprised. Before he has time to say or do anything, the cart begins moving out into the arena.

No kiss here…save it for the end.

I’m glad you’ve got a working computer again!

Is it Lucas, or Fox, who has prevented the restored OOT release?
Time

If any of the current rumors are true (KK out, Favreau in, retconning the ST, etc.) does anyone think we might get an OOT release? IF Disney is actually taking this seriously and is wanting to appease some of the angry fanbase, I think that would go a looong way. Just call Mike Verta and ask him to finish up his restoration. 😄

Here’s an update to the ending bits I’ve been playing with. Maybe these can work individually or be inspiration for other ideas.

I further tweaked the “just Rey” line, and added a more pronounced “t”.

I also added an updated version of the new end shot I’ve been messing with, which removes Rey and BB-8, instead having the falcon fly off into the binary sunset.

Finally, I tacked on the YouTube clip posted a few pages back that added Ben and Anakin force ghosts. I cropped out Anakin so you could see what the idea would look like. Not crazy about the head nod, but I think the idea of adding Ben will work.

Lookin’ really good! I like the idea of the falcon being the last shot…at the same time…
Has anyone considered Rey riding around in Lukes xwing instead? Obviously, that’s more work for someone with fx skills but it might satisfy those who are saying “the falcon belongs to Chewy!”.

Star Wars Prequels 35mm 4K Filmized Editions by Emanswfan (a WIP)

Sounds good! I’m in the early stages of learning Davinci Resolve. The whole node thing threw me off completely at first, but thank god for YouTube ;P

I don’t recall if this article was posted here in the forums, but the cinematographer for Knives Out (also TLJ) had some interesting things to say about film vs digital:

While I can’t agree with him 100%, I thought there could be some useful information here that might actually help with getting the prequels to looking like film. Granted, most of this goes over my head…so I don’t know if it will actually be of any benefit to you. Still, an interesting read.

Force Shield concept V1

Again, this is looking so freakin amazing!
SO good, in fact, might I suggest the camera shake you’ve added to the shots of the Jedi ghosts being slightly reduced?
The only reason I’m suggesting reducing the effect is so that we (the audience) can see them a bit better. Specifically, the shot that pans from Yoda to Obi.

I am still surprised when people are bringing up Kurtz when it comes to ROTJ. He was fired and replaced by Kazanjian in the middle of ESB principal photography. He basically had nothing to do with ROTJ, let alone being aware of any details such as Kasdan’s and Ford’s suggestion to kill off Han.

Actually, I didn’t know this. Are you sure? I’ve seen BTS footage of Kurtz in the editing and/or scoring sessions, which I would assume would’ve post-production.

EDIT:
There…I had to go find it:

jonh, you’re doing an amazing job!

Now, for someone who hasn’t chimed in until now:
You might want to look at altering Luke walking. He wavers left and right quite a bit…so much so that he distracts me every time I watch the clip. I don’t have time to notice the other Jedi in that shot. Granted, they each get a closeup, but maybe keep him from moving too much??

Maybe it’s just me. What do you guys think?
