Worst Edit Ideas

This post has given me the brilliant idea of adding the sound of a vacuum cleaner to the end scene in the council chamber, thus explaining the absence of seats.

That’s an interesting thing that I’ve never heard anyone address. Is it because those Jedi who held those seats died at Geonosis? Obviously Spanky McCone-Head survived…but that wasn’t for sure until ROTS.

This might be ambitious and may not be something to do, but would you consider asking help from someone very talented and experienced with DeepFakes to fix Leia in the flashback scene. She looks too much like her character model in Battlefront II in there.

That’s Carrie Fisher’s actual face from Jedi, not CGI. I don’t know how an amateur could make it look better using deepfake technology.

It didn’t look like they merged archived material for that scene. If that’s true, could you tell me which scene from Return of the Jedi they pulled her face from? Was it when she was struggling to tell Han that her and Luke were related?

So it is essentially a deepfake…

Star Wars - The Lost Cut is not exactly what you think it is....

Who knows if they actually shot anything up close…we know at some point Lucas decided against it because there was not enough articulation in the puppet to make it look believable…thus the only shots of it are in the background. My guess is Lucas came to that conclusion before wasting film stock.

The only further shots missing until we Reach Mos Eisley are

This, impossible to re-create I hope this shot surfaces one Day. Looks absolutely phenomenal! Criminal is all I can say…

Unfortunately, I’m pretty certain this is just an onset photo…not an actual still from filmed footage.
Of course, I have no proof of this. It’s just that the type of shot (dutch angle) is not utilized anywhere else in the film…right?

I have tried to consider the sound vs the video and consolidate basically and also put it in the correct order.

There are 2 points at which there are discrepencies.

In the first cortidor battle there is a whizz sound that does not exactly time with a person being shot. It may mean 2 shots are in the wrong order but it is not massively noticeable. Or potentially a splice is missing.

The second is R2-D2 jump cut in the corridor as he moves off those missing frames would realign the video and audio so although I am in synch up to that moment I am not after the jump cut. The original is out of synch when R2 wheels hit the floor.

Best thing to do is download and watch in slow motion and see if you can see or hear a discrepency but for the most part I think i got it working pretty much as choreographed adhearing to the Sound as best I could.

Interesting. You don’t think that these are simply errors when sound mixing?

This reminds me of something that has bugged me for years (which Adywan fixed): The tusken music that gets chopped up as they run and hop onto the banthas. What do you suppose happened here?
