I gotta say, green and yellow are my preferred lightsaber colours, blue is just too vanilla for me.

However, the idea of all Jedi having the same blade colour is growing on me. It makes little sense to me for a religious organization based upon ideas of stoicism, asceticism, and the wickedness of humanity and individualism to have something of such iconographic value be so easily made different to an individual’s taste.

Then again, the same could be said for hairstyle, clothing, and hilt shape.

SSWR's Attack of the Clones - Alternate Timeline Edit

Very nice.
A thought I had for Anakin’s voice would be for it to have a similar accent to JEJ’s. I really like Jones’ thespian way of speaking, his accent is American but also has a regal and educated aspect to it - not saying anything about American Accents.
Having rolled Rs and extra oration skills would, I think, make the character fit better with the OT character we all know and love.

Italiano. I’m using it for my edit, but, unlike something like the Japanese dub, the Italian dub isn’t just understandable to people who know that language. Italian is so similar to other “Romance” languages that the Spanish, Portuguese, Latin-Americans, and others can understand enough of the original dialogue for it to be a little hard to enjoy.

Recently I returned some of my attention to the edit I started all the way back in October.
Damn, I’m productive.

Mild grain and sharpening added, new colour grade, flashes added to lightsaber cuts and ignitions, among other things.

PS: Please ignore misspelling of the word “Stir”

Neither quite work for me in their current states. I’m not entirely keen on them.

Not sure how the first would be made to work, what with there being no background that would fit the spatial continuity of that scene. The second one I doubt could work simply due to the footage available.

Alas, toying around doesn’t always yield perfect clips, especially when unfinished of course.

PS, really tried to word this well. Nearly pulled a Starkiller 😛

The sound redesign was impressive, but man Williams really saves that fight. Without music, it helped me notice just how bad the choreography of the whole fight is. The fight in Empire is so good they didn’t even use music for most of it. I’m mad.

The AotC and RotS fights are probably the worst because they oscillate from moves that feel functional and historically inspired to move that would fit in Final Fantasy.

Without the music to deal with, I think that making the fight functional is finally a possibility.

DAN O'BANNON'S MEMORY - ALIEN, THE DIXON CUT
Time

COMPLETE, FUTURE REVISIONS POSSIBLE

Trailer:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=17akcq98qddRvR--yYVvnTN1pL6kVfIbS

DESCRIPTION:
Sourcing the Theatrical and Director cuts of the horror classic, I’d planned to improve the film by removing the worst cases of ADR and the worst visual effects, and also by cutting unnecessary shots, whilst keeping the feel of the film consistent with the original.

Another plan was to slightly change the relationship between Ripley and Dallas. In the film, to me, they come off as an obvious ‘item,’ but it is vague enough for many to feel differently. By making the hints more pronounced, and adding one or two more, I hope to make the relationship more obvious.

Along with these changes, I’ve also made mild changes to the score of the film. Using the rejected score and the score of Alien3. I’ve re-scored the cocoon sequence, as well as the Acid scene. I also reinserted part of the “A New Face” track to the face hugger scene and used the last few seconds of said track as a motif for other parts of the film.

SOURCES: ALIEN (1979), ALIEN DIRECTOR’S CUT (2003), ALIEN3 SOUNDTRACK (1992), ALIEN SOUNDTRACK (1979)

RUN TIME: 1 hour 48 minutes

Theatrical/DC RUN TIME: 1 hour 57 minutes

Footage Cut: 15 minutes

Footage Added: 6 minutes
