TCW: The Complete Movie Series
Time

This is ambitious but I would worry based on the episode list that your films will feel episodic inside. For example, the three malevolence episodes edited together could easily make a film by itself. Why string the others into that when they will feel unrelated?.. Especially Bombad Jedi?

Alas, this is only my opinion, and I have to admit, I am curious how you would make it work.

I hope it goes well for you.

Excited about your progress, but I have some notes.

I appreciate you wanting to eliminate the Krayt side quest, but for me, this doesn’t work. We are randomly on the massive carcass and all of sudden Cobb is thanking Mando. Trying to watch this blind, I’m not sure someone who hasn’t seen the show will understand the exchange.

Also, the color grading is a bit on the hot/overexposed side. For a show that seems to lean hard on Rec.709, maybe try going in another direction, pull back on the highlights maybe.

What are you editing on?

For me it’s not a real problem because on the travel to the carcass Cobb tell it’s story to Mando and where/how he got the armor, by this way he can thanking Mando because he appreciate the fact he doesn’t kill him for that, I hope you’ll understand my point. And the meat carcass can be explain with the “Obi Wan Kenobi” show, it’s not a problem.

Meanway, I think about the possibility of re-insert the original sequence.

Sure, I understand your point, but I fear that others will not understand as I didn’t while watching. It’s a bit jarring. My point is, if you have to explain it to people, does it really work?

I hope you don’t think I’m pooping on this, I’m simply encouraging you to think harder on it. It also requires some more plot to explain why people and Tuskens are working with each other. You don’t have the Boba story yet, but even so, that wouldn’t explain why the people can work with Tuskens with no issues.

Maybe consider a heavily reduced Krayt sequence and then it can be kind of like the first 30 minutes of Return of the Jedi.

Spence's Obi-Wan Kenobi (V3 Released)
Time

Spence! Long time, buddy.

I love the cuts here, but I’m afraid I liked this far less than you, but this still looks interesting.

I hated every moment of the Vader/Kenobi fight. I hated just about every moment in the Inquisitor base rescue sequence.

But to keep any form of story structure, I can see why you probably have to leave in what you did leave in.z

And it’s interesting enough to make me take a look if you want to toss me a link when ready.

Good to see ya again! Good to see another of the OG’s on here.

I found a good concept video showing the destruction of Alderaan in a more detailed way. I know that you don’t plan to reuse Rogue One footage, but that shot showing a landscape of Alderaan and the one showing Bail in the moment of the explosion are good ones from the games. You plan to make something like that in your edit?

This is pretty interesting concept. Though, some of the shots were of low quality. But for the most part it works.

You could remove most of episode 2 and 3 and have the kidnappers take Leia straight to the Spanish Inquisition. Cut the Vader vs Kenobi bit because the suit doesn’t fit and it looks like a fan film. Cut a lot of the in fighting with the Spanish Inquisition. I know the Empire like pitting the military against each other but these guys answer to a very difficult boss and it gets repetitive.

And then I don’t know what to do with the escape in Ep. 4. So comical and I don’t think it was intended. The trench coat reminded me of The Little Rascals short where the kids were stacked in a coat pretending to be an adult. So awful.

1000 worlds of this!

I’d also remove the young Jedi approaching Kenobi because it’s so inconsistent. “The boy must be trained.” “I can’t help you.” WHICH IS IT?!?

I’m deeply sorry, I love the concept idea, but at the same time, on my calibrated monitor those clips are over-saturated and some examples you create a few overexposures that have blown out the hightlights.

Am I the only one seeing this?

To give you something to work with (if you choose to do so.) you might try lowering the exposure levels, because let’s be honest, films are darker lit now.

I’ve often wondered if a reverse approach would be more fascinating by making the prequels more vintage looking.

Alas, that is not the point of this project.

I promise, I’m trying to be helpful, and not cast doubt. These are simply my thoughts.

I wish you well with your project!
