Keep in mind he did keep X-Wing engines pink in ESB:R because they were in Rogue One, so these edits aren’t in a vacuum. Or at least the cosmetic changes aren’t.
Let’s try this one last time:
- Star Wars
- Last Jedi
Mace Windu’s black because he is a harsher Jedi.
I’ve actually tinkered around with those shots in the past and they look absolutely fine if you just remove the green spill.
I knew somebody who had roughly that same ranking
I feel like the Huttese announcer can say something subtitled as ‘Sebulba wins!’ or something, then show a shot of Anakin. Or something.
Oh my gosh, I’m absolutely honored! After nine whole years, I bring you back!
At first I had Anakin’s theme (from the album) playing, but it felt to grand for the moment and I couldn’t remember any ‘softer’ renditions of it.
A new introduction to Anakin:
I’m very proud of the first shot of Anakin here, especially because it didn’t exist. Also, the cut from Qui-Gon to Anakin implies some sort of connection 😉.
Also: I have no idea what the subtitles should say! I know they should convey that he’s looked down upon and he’s a slave, but I can’t come up with anything!
Note: this isn’t the podrace. Anakin still later on goes and wins a bigger one. This one is meant to show him losing and then later winning (adding a tiny bit of an arc to his character).
Here’s a few ideas I’ve had for Phantom Menace:
Complete rescore/color correction+grain
Simplified bet with Watto
Implied Qui-Gon is Anakin’s father.
Added a little bit of personality to Maul’s entrance.
Having Qui-Gon be Anakin’s father really adds so much depth and subtext to this dumb, boring movie. It almost seems like it was intended at some point, with how much Shmi and Qui-Gon look at each other. In this cut, Qui-Gon’s first bet with Watto is clearly motivated by nothing but leaving the planet, but the second time he pleas for his son to be freed. In the original cut, why are these two scenes separated? Why does Anakin need to be in the dark about the race potentially leading to his freedom? In my cut, it makes sense because Qui-Gon realizes that this is actually his son AFTER betting the first time.
I was gonna jokingly reply ‘too many women and minorities’ but I decided against it
I made this and it is art
He was there last year iirc. He just likes doing cons I guess.
Knowing J.J., he’s not showing up in the movie.
I’m very interested in Threepio holding a bowcaster.
Something I rendered a while back but never uploaded:
There’s some weird slowdown stuff happening with it, ignore it.
Quick trims and neat scene transitions are everywhere to hurry this damn movie up. There’s a lot of little ideas you might notice. (Yoda doesn’t speak, for instance. When I was editing this I was toying around with removing him from the movie.)
If I were to edit this again, I’d put the Palpatine conference scene after the council scene, before transitioning back to Padme’s apartment.
I really really like what’s happening in these edits! Keep it up, Nev!
I really like this, actually! Good work!
I don’t like that Disney has a monopoly on the rights to my entire childhood, personally. Freaks me out.
The Real Monroville said:
LOCATION OF THE EMPERORS TOWER:
Having the tower in some non descript place on the Death Star felt out of place in JEDI. If the man is going to create a “high tower” to gloat over his enemies, I would imagine he would pick a place where he could not only see the battle with the most clarity, but also a place that would be highly protected. What if the Emperor’s tower was at the center of the laser dish array? Imagine the panic on Luke’s face (and our own) if you could see either the beams or even just the green of the beams outside the Emperor’s window as Luke fought Vader (so he/we are constantly reminded of the short amount of time Luke has to stop the Emperor).
Isn’t it just at the north pole of the DSII? That’s not exactly nondescript.
The movie does nothing to convey this, unfortunately.
Here’s one for the prequels:
I made them! 😃
Here’s a quick album of ‘technology’ images from the OT/Rogue One
Some things to note:
In Rogue One and ANH, holograms seem to be at a lower frame-rate than the surrounding footage.
Whenever screens ‘switch’ from one display to another, there’s some VHS-looking static.
A clip of my previous idea:
A big problem the prequels have aesthetically is the ‘cleanliness’ of environments. Temples that have existed for thousands of years feel like they have a cleaning crew of millions just to keep everything looking squeaky clean. A big part of the charm of Star Wars is the grimy, lived-in feel.
Here’s an attempt to add texture to the boring temple:
I don’t remember the last time I felt happy, and I don’t see it happening again anytime soon. I’ve been thinking about blowing my brains out a lot recently but I don’t own a gun and I’m too much of a coward to do anything else.
Fascism must die.
My heart goes out to all Muslims in the face of this awful fascist attack.
