I feel like you should replicate the opening shot as closely as possible as it is the most iconic thing about the whole opening.
After watching that weird ‘Scene 38 Reimagined Clip’, I noticed some things about the original sequence that bothered me.
Trying to bring this closer to modern ‘Disney’ visual standards.
Added proper star-field that reacts to focus shift and a stronger glow to the hanger opening.
Added detailing to the previously pitch-black background wall and enhanced ground lighting.
I think I hated it?
I don’t like the Phantom Menace Tatooine back there, but that might be just me.
What program are you using for these renders, by the way?
Isn’t there McDiarmid audio for that scene in the Rinzler ebook?
Is it possible to remove the ‘superweapon’ element to Starkiller Base? What if it’s just a snow planet with a First Order base on it? Of course VFX would be needed, but what are the plot ramifications of this?
How could you properly convey that the Republic is out of the picture? Maybe this whole First Order-Resistance conflict is much smaller, galactically, and the complacent Republic still exists out there somewhere? Maybe the First Order is only a problem in the Outer Rim, so they don’t care?
Starkiller being a super-weapon is really my only problem with Force Awakens.
I’ve been toying around with a total overhaul to the TIE Fighter Escape sequence, for fun and visual effects practice.
Here’s a shot from the thing: https://gfycat.com/informalmadeupjanenschia
JEDIT: I feel like I may have made the TIES too slow. I’m not even sure! Give feedback!
Canonically that is Endor Prime.
Complacent, centrist politics breeds the rise of Fascism?
Mon Mothma’s demilitarization and the New Republics lack of concern for the rise of the First Order directly leads to it’s destruction.
But let’s not discuss politics here.
Are you sure you aren’t just remembering a fan-edited trailer?
I have a really awesome idea of making the Trade Federation in Episode I more guerilla and pirate-like.
I will post some mockups later. I just had to post this to keep a reminder to myself.
Are you sure it wasn’t a TV spot? Because the first trailer that starts with the gungans is everywhere online.
My source was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZasLcoKWlY.
I don’t have the DVD copy of the movie, and I assume that the one on the Star Wars official YouTube channel is the best quality version of it considering it was uploaded more than a decade after the DVDs came out and could take advantage of everything that goes with that. If anyone has a direct, lossless rip from the DVD itself it might help, but I just don’t think anything will help it exactly match the surrounding footage.
There was the Sidious namedrop in TLJ, but idk if that really counts.
Endor Prime is canonically a Gas Giant, as seen in Battlefront II.
I love everything about this flick we’ve seen so far.
The Last Force Hope Returns the Empire Clones of the Menacing Sith
Take it or leave it.
An attempt at implementing the ‘God, that’s hot!’ blooper:
You don’t have to bring your hatred of the new movies into everything you post here, Zerome.
I could stabilize the Obi-Wan and R4 shots to help them fit better.
Approaching Kamino in the style of the theatrical The Empire Strikes Back.
I’m deffo up for some rotoscoping. Dm me with the details!
I have a lot of unreleased edits and ideas that I mostly just post parts of in the Prequel radical ideas thread. I have a problem with focusing on one idea and completing it because I think of something radically different to try before I’m done.
I’ve done some acting before but never voice work. I’m not too sure about my own abilities honestly.
JEDIT: Plus I feel like I’m better suited to visual effects rather than film editing. I could never have thought of half the things you put in that short clip!
I’d love to help in any way I can with this!
I feel like Anakin should act/sound just like Luke, with his accent and mannerisms, and transition into a more authoritarian, regal voice by the end of Episode III.
If I had a good mic setup I’d totally dub him in my cut.
I really love what you did to that scene! There’s an energy there that wasn’t there previously! Impressive as hell!
