Reason: version A now removed by editor
Slightly tweaked version B.
I know David would love to hear your comments either here or on the youtube.
You're an adult. Just cope.
Thanks for the heads up on this Bob... just watched it. Absolutely brilliant. Some fantastic fanediting here and the inclusion of footage from other films worked perfectly. Am I right in suggesting there was some after effects work here too? Great voiceover work too.
Congrats David - a truly superb edit and miles better than the show itself (as in Galactica 1980 I mean)
Yes, there is new F/X work done by Mr. Kerin himself. I believe there will be more to come. It is still a work in progress but what amazing work it is, especially considering what little good footage exists from G80. I think one of the most amazing things is David has made Dr. Zee a sympathetic character, which is a miracle in my books.
But as I said before, he is looking for comments/observations/suggestions as he gets closer to his final version, so please feel free to post any thoughts or inquiries you may have.
I wrote some notes down last night but accidentally deleted them, but the main one i remember was the scene transition from the narraration to the scene with adama @ 3:24, i thought the nararation part should drift off longer before we fade into the next scene.
That's a pretty good episode!
Version 3 is now up. David is considering making this is Final Cut.
A scene of Zee having a premonition of the Galactica's destruction and fall of Earth has been added.
Also, the Battle for Earth has been extended with shots from around the globe
and the Fleet descending to Earth and Adama addressing the UN.
Truly amazing editing feat and a joy for Classic Galactica Fans!
Check it out and post your comments.
24:52, explosion sound is too loud.
29:00-ish, that cylon beam weapon reminds me of the planet drill from the new Star Trek movie, maybe a couple shots from that movie could be used.
31:39, the fighter jets: To me it seems a bit too sudden for the fighters showing up like that, especially after seeing a landing strip of fighter jets getting destroyed, maybe when the attack on the landing strip begins a small scene could be added of a military commander saying something like ``Get all your planes off the ground NOW!!!``. The language of the shots makes sense the way it is now however, in a silent film kinda way.
33:37, jerky motion on the shot of the galactica over earth.
34:39-ish, when Adama says ``on a planet called... earth`` Inserting crowd reaction shots would help sell this scene better IMO. And, maybe you could have people from around the globe watching this on there televisions, could provide opportunities for some interesting reactions ect.
This is really cool, actual closure to the series, and action packed! those battle sequences are really something
