In an effort to give Phantom Menace a more down-to-earth, cheery vibe:
A lot of edits cut out this scene, which is a great shame. It’s one of the few times characters genuinely smile.
Also, did you do something with audio? Like, add room tone and foley? If you did, I really like it.
Yup. The roomtone really brings the feeling of the movie back to 1977. The movies aren’t shot too differently either (even though Gilbert Taylor was miles better than David Tattersall)
I actually sourced the grain from the 35mm prequel trailers lol. I’ll try it in black though, just to see what it’s like.
Really love what you did to the audio, feels much more grounded. I suggest bringing the room tone down just a bit. Currently it almost feels like watching a deleted scene.
