Star Wars Visual Symphony

16 Jul

It is done.

I’m genuinely surprised with how well this project came out.  I just started it (years and years ago) as a hobby, something for me to just play around with video editing whenever I was bored.  I never figured it would end up as good as it has, but I’m really moved by parts of it.

It’s like I took what makes the story of the Star Wars Saga powerful and good and condensed it down into 15 minutes.  Of course having John Williams’ music over the whole thing doesn’t hurt (in fact I’d say it’s essential).  At any rate I’m quite pleased with it.

What should I work on next?

Star Wars Visual Symphony: Concerto II

9 Jul

The second in the three-part symphony is now up.  Concerto II in Love and Death

This may be my favorite of the three, although the third isn’t quite done yet. There is certainly something to enjoy about the epic conclusion, but I think this one ended up being the most powerful. Plus, there is something to be said for the Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon love scene.

Behold the bounds of my geekiness!  Marvel at the remarkable montage!  The first of the trilogy is finished and now available for anyone (and everyone) to see!

Star Wars Visual Symphony sneak peek

10 Jun

So you know that Star Wars Visual Symphony project I’ve been working on since 1999 when Episode I came out?  Of course you don’t.

But there is one, and I’ve finally made some progress on it.  So much so that the first movement (first of three) is almost done.

Here’s a small sneak peek at it, if you’re interested.
