How To Get Revisited

Because it can’t be shared enough, please use these instructions from the Facebook Page when trying to figure out how to get Revisited.

———————

First, Star Wars is copyrighted by LFL and you have to own a copy of the films in order to own a copy of this edit. This is a free edit/enhancement, if you bought this edit from someone you have to go kick them in the nuts and get your money back (this was also Ady’s suggestion in the pop up video section listing all the changed of ANH:R and we all agree wholeheartedly.). If they do not have nuts, well just get your money back and call them a bad word to make them cry. =P

Now to get Revisited on DVD you have to have a few things:

May The Fourth Dagobah Video!

As promised, here is the clip of Dagobah with the new miniature replacing the old matte painting, and the Nobby White Spider.

Time is also running out to get your hands on one of the tree models used in this clip. There are not many left so, if you are thinking of grabbing one, now would be the time to do it

As usual, the audio in this clip is NOT the finished audio, but just a temporary guide track

EDIT: It seems facebook has once again compressed the hell out of the video. If you want to see this clip in better quality , you can download the original file here: ( It’s just over 200mb)

Wampa Fix

One of the last things Adywan will be working on for Empire Strikes Back Revisited is a new Wampa to help unite the look throughout the movie. In the latest entry of our “Change Explain” series, I’ll show you why Ady feels this is necessary.

The first time we see the Wampa’s face, it was a puppet made by Phil Tippet and shot in the United States.

Here’s a picture of his being filmed on the puppeteer’s arm.

The next time we see the Wampa (at least in the Special Edition), is when it’s snacking on Luke’s poor Tauntaun and is disturbed by Luke waking up.

ILM artist Howie Weed created and wore the new Wampa suit in a miniature set.

The shot of the Wampa lunging towards Luke was in the original theatrical edition.
wampa3

This was a Stuart Freeborn full-sized costume (seen here from an abandoned sequence where we’d see the Wampa dragging Luke and the Tauntaun back to his lair):
wampa3-man

The reaction shot of the Wampa after Luke cuts its arm off was added for the Special Edition.
wampa4
Once again, this was Howie Weed in the suit.

As you can see, the Wampa in the finished film (as seen on the Blu-ray)  has three very different looks for being the same creature. Adywan is building a new puppet he hopes to use to replace some of these shots and remove the others to create a single look for the Wampa.

Don’t even get me started on all the different Wampa looks for the deleted scenes

Dabbling In The Prequels

While I have been waiting for stuff to dry (paints, resin, etc.), I decided to start dabbling with the prequels. So I started with Episode 2 as this one looks the worst out of those films. The whole “orange” look to the film gives it a quite flat quality and really doesn’t help with the CG in the film. So I decided to start a quick and dirty colour grading pass. Geonosis is the worse offender. Yes, the planet does have a red sky (at least in the official version) but iIwant to give this film a more natural colour pallet. Now, as I said, this is a very quick and dirty colour grade only done as a test to see what can be achieved and how the film could look with some added grain, so it matched the OT instead of looking like an older digitally shot movie.

Now, if you want to see a proper comparison just click on the sample here:

Some more tests:

Plus some footage:

And the second is the regraded version in higher bitrate so you can see the added film grain: (approx 270mb)

January 2015 Update

Some news following on from my last post.

Well we have a few new members of the Revisited Crew. Some very talented people have come onboard. I will introduce them all at a later date though. I’m always looking for people with Cg skills, Digital matte skills etc, so there is still plenty of time to come on board.

I can tick a couple of the 1/48 kits off my list. Thanks to Chris, i will soon have a fine molds 1/48 x-wing. And i have a chance on getting a 1/48 scratch build Y-Wing resin kit which is gorgeous and really detailed. I just need to scrape together £200 by the end of the month, so keep your fingers crossed.. I’m still no closer, however, on a b-wing 1/48 kit and an a-wing 1/48 kit. so if anyone knows anyone who is still selling any resin kits at this scale then please do let me know.

EDIT: I HAVE DECIDED TO GO DOWN THE SCRATCH BUILD ROUTE FOR THE A & B-WINGS SO I NO LONGER NEED TO FIND THOSE KITS

I’m back to work finishing off the HiC sculpt tomorrow and will hopefully get it cast in a week or so, so i can get those scenes filmed and out of the way.

I’ll be sticking some stuff on ebay beginning of next month so i can clear a lot of this out to make way for the next batch of stuff and help raise funds for materials to carry on the saga. I’m really running out of room. There will be individual dagobah Trees, Han’s ESB Blaster, Possibly the large AT-AT model amongst other things if i can get that filmed and out of the way in time.

The Plan For The Future

Today it was back to work on Revisited. During the break i began to plan out the direction i will be going for the following films. As you know , i will be working on the remaining films in one go. Madness you say? Well, probably, yes. But it will keep things fresh for me. I won’t get bogged down with one thing.

Models will now be going to a larger scale. Ships will be 1/48 instead of 1/72 as i have been working with on ESB:R. So expect larger scale sets. I recently purchased the Hasbro Millennium falcon playset. This thing is amazing. It’s basically 1/48 scale so will be perfect to work with. A LOT of modifications need to be done to it to bring it up to filming quality, but it will be a damn site easier, and cheaper, than building it from scratch. So,there will be lots of progress reports to look forward to from that build.

I will also need to find some good 1/48 kits of B-Wings, A-Wings but especially Y-Wings. Fine molds did a pretty good 1/48 X-wing but, thanks to them now being discontinued, they’re rocketing in price. It seems i missed out on kits of these scales by some talented builders and don’t really see them available any more. Just my luck. lol.

In the next few months i’ll be doing a casting call for not only costumers who fancy lending a hand but also FX talent. This thing is going to be a HUGE task, so the Revisited team will need all the help it can get and needs to grow to have any chance of accomplishing our goal. With ESB:R hopefully out of the way within the next 6 months, things need to begin to move forward.

Now most of the live action filming will be taking place in the Midlands, UK, with the Endor shoot taking place in California. Over here (UK) there will be a lot of greensreen work for characters to place into, mainly, the prequels. I will need a couple of Sandtroopers and Stormtroopers for definite , but this will be for minor stuff and the shot would only take one day (probably just a few hours TBH). Also shooting here will be the new rebel pilots ( and maybe a TIE pilot too) for the Endor space battle.

There will also be a lot more, but details will surface once ESB:R is complete .

So, if anyone thinks they can help out with FX work, then please contact the Revisited team through private messaging here. And that also goes for anyone who has any 1/48 kits they want to get rid of, anyone who has a Sandtrooper, Stormtrooper costume that is in the UK and can get to the Wolverhampton and can lend a few hours for the shoot. There will be more costumers needed, but again details will emerge closer to the time.
