Brief Synopsis:
Star Wars with a rocking soundtrack! Heavy Star Wars takes the existing action and adventure, trimming away unnecessary story/action/bad acting, and replaces the soundtrack with Rock music!
My intention was to make a Star Wars movie a bit more easier to watch, especially if you are not a fan. I started with Episode III on a whim, finished Episode I, then II, and now this is the first move into the original trilogy! John Williams' Music is forever tied to the Star Wars movies, but I decided to use music from a completely different genre to not only tell the story, but to add a bit of humor and perhaps some subtle insight as to the motives of the Jedi Knights. I tried to make this movie a bit more mature, by removing some silly scenes, and removed some moments of doubt among the Jedi to make them more assertive and confident. I also added a bit more contrast and a cooler color palette with brighter colors to give it a more comic book feel.

Editing Details:
The inspiration for my approach was the movie Heavy Metal, and also my background in editing music videos helped with creating a hopefully visually interesting experience.
Cuts and Additions:
MTV music video editing was used in the action scenes, but in the moments where I had to cut down scenes for time and what not, whatever was left and I had to piece together, I edited the movie as close as possible to the pacing set by the original movie.
